Are you feeling a little lost and wondering about the vicissitudes of life? 


When you've been focused on your conscious evolution for several years, there comes a point in time when life doesn't seem to make sense anymore. You've grasped systemic complexity, appreciate why it's important for business and society to evolve, and yet here you are, in a state of suspension wondering about the purpose and meaning of life.

I found myself cast into this unfamiliar world some years ago. All the trappings of my modern world: work, family, clients, colleagues, interests, vapourized into thin air. The rug was pulled out from under me. I found myself facing an immense sense of emptiness and futility, disillusionment and despair. I was lost and had to rediscover who I understood myself to be.

This is typical of a shift into the 5th Perspective where nothing seems real any more. Our initial immersion in the 5th Perspective can be a mysterious and often daunting passage including the dark night of the soul when life can unravel. It is a time of surrender and acceptance that shifts beyond the identity of the self to the soul of our holistic being. 

Having seen coaches at this precipice, I wanted to support them on their Soul Voyage, and therefore developed this Program. It offers an exploration of the 5th Perspective, the domain of the soul. Our Deep Discovery Dialogues take on a new dimension exploring the dilemmas and illusions in our universal yet deeply personal intimate soul voyages.

Is it Time To Engage Your Soul?

With soul guidance and deep inquiry, you'll have a sacred place to delve deep and discover your spiritual self.








This 9-Module 12-month Program invites you to explore the domain of the spiritual self and collective soul. While there is no specific track to follow, a deep group inquiry based on a range of excerpts for reading and reflection, and the gradual development of a more informed understanding of the domain of the soul, will enable you to find your own path. 

While the vertical shift to Synergist signifies the maturation of the individual Self, the quantum shift to Alchemist involves the discovery and development of a new transcendent identity at the level of spirit. The MetAware Tier is an entirely new world of being all you are, developing the compassion and wisdom to live with reverent care, free to love all that is.

There are some 20 pp of RADAR content for each Module, and 10 * 1¾-hr. 4-weekly. They offer a more profound depth of peer inquiry into the concepts and their application to your soul voyage. There are 10 interceding Peer Collaborations to further explore, integrate, and embody your understanding.

"Like the birds of the sea, people come from the ocean - the ocean - the ocean of the soul. ... You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop. ... I am the ocean and its turbulent flood. Come merge with me, leave this world of ignorance. Be with me, I will open the gate to your love." Rumi


"Summer was like your house: you knew where each thing stood. Now you must go out into your heart as onto a vast plain. Now the immense loneliness begins. The days go numb, the wind sucks the world from your senses like withered leaves. Through the empty branches the sky remains. It is what you have. Be earth now, and evensong. Be the ground lying under that sky. Be modest now, like a thing ripened until it is real, so that he who began it all can feel you when he reaches for you. ~ Rainer Maria Rilke


When you come to the end of one time and the beginning of a new one, it’s a period of tremendous pain and turmoil. ~ Yeats 

“The secret cause of all suffering is mortality itself, which is the prime condition of life. It cannot be denied if life is to be affirmed.” ~ Joseph Campbell

"Only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over to annihilation can that which is indestructible be found in us.” ~ Pema Chödrön, Tibetan Buddhist Nun


"I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope. For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love. For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith. But the faith and love and the hope are all in the waiting. Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought. So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing." ~ T. S. Eliot


Be full of sorrow, that you may become a hill of joy; weep, that you may break into laughter. ~ Rumi

"The meaning of ‘whole’ or ‘wholeness’ is to make holy or to heal. The descent into the depths will bring healing. It is the way to the total being, to the treasure which suffering mankind is forever seeking, which is hidden in the place guarded by terrible danger.” ~ Carl G Jung


"I never know what people mean when they complain of lone-liness. To be alone is one of life’s greatest delights, thinking one’s own thoughts ... and feeling oneself uninterrupted in the rooted connection with the centre of all things." ~ D.H. Lawrence

"For oft when on my couch I lie, in vacant or in pensive mood, they flash upon that inward eye which is the bliss of solitude; and then my heart with pleasure fills, and dances with the daffodils." ~ William Wordsworth


"I have seen nothing more weird or miraculous than myself. Over time we get used to strange things, but the more I probe myself and know myself the more my oddity astonishes me and the less I understand who I am." ~ Montaigne

"The acorn becomes the oak by embracing growth. When passion is fanned by the breath of the heart, you shall have peace and dynamic movement, restful stillness, and soul-inspired action, all at once!" ~ Rumi


"Forget about knowledge and wisdom, and people will be a hundred times better off. Throw away charity and righteousness, and people will return to brotherly love. Throw away profit and greed, and there won't be any thieves. These three are superficial and aren't enough to keep us at the centre of the circle, so we must also embrace simplicity. Put others first. Desire little." ~ Tao de Ching, Chapter 19



“We shall not cease from exploration, And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. Through the unknown, remembered gate when the last of earth left to discover is that which was the beginning; at the source of the longest river, the voice of the hidden waterfall and the children in the apple-tree, not known, because not looked for but heard, half-heard, in the stillness between two waves of the sea. ~ T.S. Eliot

This model  was distilled at the end of our last Soul Voyage Program.

It offers us an understanding of how we might live life from our inner sense of Sacred Purpose, our MISSION in life. Not one we have constructed, but one that arises from within in honour of our spiritual uniqueness and the special talents we offer as an instrument of the divine orchestra on earth.

This leads us into Serendipity. We offer our ATTENTION to all that arises around us with Curiosity, Sagacity, and Tenacity so we may rise to meet the tests and trials that serve to cultivate our soul character and contribute to Global Progress in the world through our being.

With an understanding of and openness to Abundance, we may become pillars of DEVOTION. We evolve our Conscious Soulful Presence by tuning in, and relying completely on our somatic Experience, heartfelt Resonance, and spiritual Guidance to lead a Fulfilling Life in surrender.


I've been on a conscious evolutionary journey for over 20 years. It's my purpose in life to help us realize the extraordinary power of our human potential, and organizations their highest aspirations, so we can lead more meaningful, fulfilling, and loving lives. 

I'm an eternal student with 7 degrees incl. a PhD in Transformative VHLD Coaching, author, concept designer, mother of three, global citizen, emissary for peace, and partner in conscious soul evolution.

I've been based in Europe for the last five years, and in 2023, I'll be in New Zealand once again, my birthplace. Life is a continuing cycle of growth as we evolve and return to old landscapes with new eyes.

Join me on a journey of self-discovery, healing, self-love, and the inspiration to uplift and evolve our unique self and a soulful life.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

"I found myself in an eerily quiet space of suspension; oscillating between despair and joy, wandering in unexplored shadowlands, contemplating all things spiritual, and being invited to surrender to something bigger. The Soul Voyage Program provides the companionship of beautiful fellow travellers, and 'soul food' in support."

Heather Monro

"The 5th Perspective Program lets you explore expansive ways of thinking in pursuit of essential questions of human life and beyond. The peer exchange is a great platform for reflection and exchange based on inspirational inputs and prompts."

Marie-Louise Zollinger

"Being both gentle and direct, intuitive and clear, she generously and courageously shares her wisdom and insights. Antoinette, it's a truly amazing experience being guided and coached by you, in the spiritually connected space where you and I meet."

Karin Hamrin

"Accessing transpersonal territory is delicate and profound work. It requires immense skill, clarity and empathy in equal measure, and a balance of both scientific method and unstructured creative expression. That’s Antoinette’s gift in its facilitation, through which new horizons in inner and (later) outer space emerge."

Paul Smith
