    Paula Anstett

    Paula Anstett is a seeker of understanding. She challenges the status quo on a daily basis by constantly asking “why?” Determined for her choices to not only make sense but to also feel right, Paula was in constant search of information to help her navigate her internal conflict. It took, what she refers to as a train crash in her life, for her to realize that she was searching in the wrong place. The answers weren’t out there—they were within her. And so, the journey from her head to her heart began. This was a journey that required awakening her intuition—the place deep within that held the answers to all her questions; answers that would finally feel right.


    Paula has been on a lifelong adventure involving change, learning, growth and healing. A graduate of the University of Waterloo and the Institute of Holistic Nutrition, she says that while she has learned and acquired great information in the classroom, she gained immense knowledge in life’s own classroom. She lives in Kitchener, Ontario with her greatest teacher, her daughter Annika.

    The Journey Between Places

    And Exploring What Shows Up Along The Way


    The Journey Between Places will awaken your intuition—the voice within that has so much to say. We are blessed to have access to formal education and the internet is an information highway. As we travel the path of more education and information, we are driven further into our heads and away from our hearts—the place that holds key knowledge.

    Do you feel pressured to live a life that everyone tells you is worth living but doesn’t feel right to you?
    Is your head telling you one thing and your heart, another?
    Do you hear yourself constantly asking why?
    Do you feel stuck and then criticize yourself for being stuck?

    If any of these statements resonate with you, maybe your intuition is tugging at you. When you combine the wisdom from deep within, with what you are privileged to learn, you can create a life that feels right and is connected with your soul purpose.
