I am Anne Wondra, 'officially' the president and founder and CEO. 'unofficially,' I'm a creator, a spiritual teacher, a coach, and a muse.
I write, coach, create classes and content, and teach ...because I'm compelled to.
There are things inside us creative types--engineers, designers, artists, writers, etc.--that pester us .until we DO something constructive to get it out...and make it useful.I'm a soul and wellness coach, spiritual teacher, muse, workshop leader, writer, entrepreneur, and everyday goddess (a bit of magic, muse and mystery, and a woman of wisdom).
My undergrad is in religious studies and education, with a master's certification in human resource management, and a Wellness Mapping 360 coaching certification. I have worked as a parish youth minister, a legal assistant / paralegal, and as a corporate human resource, training and wellness professional. My resume has more if you're interested.
My work is the spirit and personal side of success, the art and soul of living well. Brochure
I have served as a Notary Public (State of Wisconsin) and hold membership in Coachville.com and the Coachville Schools of Coaching and past membership in the National Wellness Institute.
On the personal side, I share this life with a wonderful man, my husband, Michael Robichaud, and our furry feline family. Mike and I didn't find each other until our 30s, and some life stages took interesting directions. For example, I know and appreciate being single and 30--both the challenges and opportunities. I learned some good single survival strategies out of it. (Turns out, they're healthy marriage strategies too.)
I have a sense of humor and playfulness. I am about the experiences and universal laws (like gravity) that apply to us across colors, cultures, genders, religions, time. There is wisdom that inspires, enlightens, energizes, transforms and resonates in each of us...and I have long been a collector and sharer of it!
Michael is my behind-the-scenes support person, life partner, husband, friend, and love of my life. Did I mention he's creative, has a sense of humor, loves animals, and is multi-talented. Academically, he has a double major in radio/ communications/film and psychology, and is an avid eclectic reader...which led him to his dream job as a Happiness teacher! In addition, he has great people skills, a quick witt, and is a talented humor artist, and guitar player. He also enjoys Ebay, movies and old movie posters--and likes to cook too. (I am so blessed and so love this guy!)
Professionally, Michael is a Hapacus Director, teaching the Science of Happiness to individuals and groups. More HERE.
KINDRED SPIRIT CENTER
In 2006, I colalborated with two small-business solopreneur women of spirit and opened the Kindred Spirit Center (then called Kindred Spirit Coaching & Wellness).
Kindred Spirit Center is simply a shared address. Three wisdom-of-women teachers and business owners--Anne, Susan, and Sue-- WonderSpirit, Spirit Space, and Calling Spirit... each have our own studio, and we share the common areas. You can learn more about us at the Kindred Spirit Center web site.
WonderSpirit Resources and WonderSpirit Coaching.
Coaching is for people who are changing and growing--in areas that take a lot of courage. Some are reclaiming and redefining themselves, navigating spiritual awareness and awakenings; some seek more understanding depth and meaning in their lives--perhaps a death or divorce or something else was a catalyst. Some want to live differently--happier, better, healthier, more in alignment with who they'd like to be.
Support strengthens, empowers, provides companionship, a confidante--someone to hold the vision you see, and encourge you.
I know how much it makes a difference to have even just one person seeing beauty--when everyone else saw ugly...
WonderSpirit started out of a part of me that got stronger as I got older, and a desire to make a difference, a passion to empower all that is good and great in us, and a 'yes' to a sacred dance. There wasn't somebody doing what I felt led to do...so I created it.
Be yourself. There is something you can do better than any other. Listen to the inward voice, and bravely obey that. (Unknown)
The inspiriation for the company, the beginnings, came in 1996. A lot of the lessons came ealier. The officialfounding came in 2001.
Self-discovery is a sacred path. Life Enjoyment, finding JOY in living, is it's purpose.(Anne Wondra)
Life is a dance .... This is our playground and classroom ....
