"Anything Is Possible" has forever been my motto and it has ensured that I have always made an attempt to live life to the fullest. I was born in Finland, raised in Sweden, and left to explore the world at 20. After some years of travelling and working in Europe and South America, I went back to complete a higher education in England started my career in British and European politics.
I always believed that anything you do, you should do it full heartedly, hence why during my time in politics I held various positions and worked daily with local politicians, Government Ministers and EU Parliamentarians. I was also appointed by the current Prime Minister as Co-ordinator for the Women2Win Team, which entailed training Women Parliamentary Candidates in communicative skills, budgets and campaigning.
For many years my life was nothing but politics, yet at the height of my career, I knew it was time to take a different direction. Having worked in a highly competitive and stressful environment for many years, I was ready for something new. In April 2013, when my family and I decided to move to Indonesia, I knew that it was the right time to move on. I was already practising and studying Holistic & Alternative Treatments and Therapy. I realised just how important it was to apply mindful training into every day practise, and soon Soul & Spirit Spa was born as a venture of our Julius Huett Consultancy.
Being passionate about living life to the full, it is important to understand that - we cannot do that if our mind is full of stress, anxiety, sadness, depression and/or loneliness, from which many people suffer today. The power and growth is rooted within ourselves. Today, my focus is to use my own experiences to support others, and to teach people how they can live a balanced life, no matter what job, background, culture, education, religion or sexuality they are or come from. The Soul & Spirit Spa Community has developed into a wonderful group of expats and locals from all different religious and non-religious backgrounds, we have over 70 Reiki Practitioners, and continuously train future Reiki and Mindfulness Practitioners to continue our work.
Today, I continue my own training in Mindfulness and Meditation within the Tibetan Buddhist Mahayana context in the Kopan Monastery, Nepal. Moreover, I am members of the FPMT - Foundation of the Preservation of Mahayana Tradition, and the FSS (Foundation of Shamanic Studies) in Asia. I am also a frequent visitor to Dharma Talks, Meditation, Mindfulness and other holistic retreats in Nepal, Indonesia and Singapore. I work in partnership with other established local wellness businesses, naturopaths, nutritionist, the yoga community and promote local community participation.
Compassion, forgiveness, faith, trust, love, and the power of self worth, not only has the power to just change one person's life, but the world entirely.
