About me & my work:

I am a storyteller, an alchemist, a WISEwoman, an innovator and ecologist. My passion is to support people and organisations to raise their standards, awaken their heart, and actualise our true potential in the Spirit of Ubuntu. I founded EARTHwise Centre as a wisdom-based collaboratory for bringing into life the new thriveable system designs & practices, for a world and future where all of us can flourish. I am currently writing up my Ph.D Thesis titled "Into the Heart of Systems Change", and recently published my book "Love Letters from Mother Earth". I was born and raised in the Netherland after which I lived in South Africa, Australia, and currently Mauritius. Through my work and passion, I share and collaborate with people from all over the world. I appreciate how this network of General Thinkers can support us to further share and exchange our gifts and talents with each other.

EARTHwise Centre | EARTHwise Centre is a wisdom-based enterprise providing custodianship, leadership, value-creation, capacity development, eco-systemic education, and vision development for our collective flourishing and actualisation. We co-create learning networks and systemic conditions with our partners, through which our collective wisdom potentials and systemic intelligence can emerge and actualise. We apply this in our work with businesses, schools, communities, leadership networks, and individuals.

TEDx - Our world in Crisis, how Love can provide a Solution | Anneloes Smitsman shares how Love can provide a solution for our World in crisis, using her Vector of Love metaphor, by asking and applying three key questions: 1) What do I reach from - what is my point of origin? 2) How far can I reach inside and outside myself - what is the magnitude of my reach? 3) What am I reaching for and to - what is the direction of my reach? These three questions combined show us our impact and how we are impacted.

Co-Founder & Custodian -WOMENwise | WOMENwise is an EARTHwise initiative to support women to discover and actualise their WISEwoman potential, and to provide a feminine balance and empowerment for the co-creation of Thriveable organisations and communities. WOMENwise was founded by Anneloes Smitsman and Justine Page in recognition that women empowerment and feminine leadership is essential to create Thriveable societies where all of us can flourish. WOMENwise offers a unique growth & development model, that is based on eco-systemic principles and synergistic co-creation practices. Through WOMENwise we put into practical application the EARTHwise Wholeness Code as the DNA for growing and developing our organisations, networks, communities, relationships and families with care for our planet and the flourishing of All. WOMENwise Offerings include: WOMENwise Leadership training, coaching & mentorship programs, WOMENwise empowerment programs for organisation (in-house), WOMENwise retreats, WOMENwise Conversation Circles, and The WISEwoman Quest (online training course with in-person retreats).

Love Letters from Mother Earth | Love Letters from Mother Earth was written by Anneloes Smitsman to take us into the heart of our humanity to discover our story from a new perspective. Through these Letters, people receive the wisdom and support that our planet, as a caring and conscious Mother, shares for our collective flourishing. These thirteen Letters have been carefully composed via a process of inspired writing and listening deeply to Mother Earth s message for us. Together these thirteen Letters form a sacred design that is like a living map for the actualization of our collective wisdom potentials. With this map, we become more conscious of the designs of our inner and outer worlds, gaining a new perspective and a more integrated understanding.
