Is to help you silence the mind, redirect your focus, and feel comfortable with yourself. It is to overcome your limitations and reach your potentials. It is also to promote self-responsibility, respect, community wellness, equality, equanimity, compassion, peace, and happiness.
With love and kindness, Marie-Annick
Coach Marie is a 7-time Spectrum Award Winner for Excellence in Customer Service. She is a best-seller author of numerous books and contributed to many publications. She is a highly respected world leader in the wellness, fitness, and healthy lifestyle industries. More importantly to her, she is a wisdom teacher, a Zen coach, and a life coach.
Born and raised in Paris, France; she moved to California in 1985 and never looked back. Like most people, she realized that life was challenging in so many ways. After facing traumatic events from a young age, she realized the importance of resilience and never giving up. Being dyslexic, studies were challenging, even with speech therapy. That said, failure to accomplish her dream was never an option. She compensated with her unique empath abilities and worked hard to accomplish her life goals. With the support of many, she became a world-class table tennis player, a high-ranked tennis player, and in high-demand coach. For more than two decades, she enjoyed being a Healthy Chef and Entrepreneur.
Her quest for knowledge and understanding of wellness, human capabilities, spirituality, sufferance, and happiness brought her to embrace various educational pathways. From the Chamber of Commerce & Industry School (Commercial & Management Certificate- Paris, France), Century Business College (AA in Culinary Arts), World Pastry Forum (Certified + Accredited by the ACF and IACF), Wilton Cake School (Certified Level I, II, and III), Van Den Meer University (Certified Tennis Instructor), USTTA & FFTT Table Tennis (Certified Instructor & National Coach), Sports Psychology (INS), CYSA (Certified Soccer Coach), WSET (Certified Level 2 Wines + Spirits), to various certificate programs around Nutrition, Life Coaching, Sports Hypnosis, and NLP (Nesta). Learning from multitude sources, including Buddhist Monks and Masters (Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, or Pema Chodron to name a few), provided her with wide knowledge and a discipline that has served her well. Being aware of the rapidly changing world, she keeps up with her education on her favorite subjects (psychology, dietetics, cuisine, human potential) and Zen practices on regular basis.
For the past 22 years, her “Healthy Chef Program” and books were utilized to create new educational programs through various industries. The program certified thousands of new healthy chefs around the world and inspired many to embrace similar healthy career choices. She enjoyed working with an array of clients from doctors, registered dietitians, scientists, clergies, Buddhist masters, teachers, restaurateurs, chefs, fitness gurus, farmers, entrepreneurs, non-profit organizations, and endless individuals. Under her guidance, many of her clients embraced healthier lifestyles and inspired others to do the same. She always rejoices over the betterment of lives, the reduction of suffering, and seeing dreams realized. She gladly volunteers for projects that support human dignity, wellness, and women-children welfare. She is thankful for the numerous business partners that embraced her mission all these years and for clients who trusted her with private matters. She is grateful to all her teachers who keep coming into her life.
Coaching is her passion and diminishing suffering in this world is her life mission. She believes in actions that promote self-responsibility, respect, wellness, growth, equality, equanimity, compassion, peace, and happiness. With the permission of her late Zen Master and Teacher, Master Nguyen Tien, she is now teaching the valuable Buddhist doctrines she has learned and practiced for more than four decades. To perpetuate such teachings and, based on her life experiences, she has created the "3D" Studies and Practices.
She is highly respected for her professionalism, knowledge, compassion, and skills that bring undeniable human progress. She often surpasses expectations and always willing to go the extra mile. She welcomes any person ready for growth in his or her life, as willing souls are limitless potentials for the benefit of all. CONTACT
