Brigitte Marie is passionate about witnessing and engaging with all Life. Not just people, but all realms she relates to with empathy and soul connection. This enables her to mediate feminine values and wisdom they hold.

She belongs to the circle of Elders who choose to dedicate, live by, value and serve feminine laws in support of all life and on behalf of Mother Earth who just reflects, mediates and co-creates with each one of us.

Brigitte engages with animal spirits as shaman, aware that all life is inter-connected within a greater purpose. She knows that true connection with Life only happens when trusting the power of the heart and higher intuition.

That is when all relationships enter in resonance and synchronicity within all realms, moving them unto a soul level:

This offers hope, sanity, compassion, acceptance and safety bringing alive some of life’s greatest values.”

Brigitte is a mother and has brought up 5 amazing children, who are now parents and she is grand-mother to 16 grand-children from 2 years up to 26 years old and shares with each, some of the gems of wisdom she keeps in her magic pocket.
