The picturesque towns perched on the banks of the Rhine in western Germany are a far reach from Melbourne, but they are linked through the creative journey of Kinesiologist Anette Kortenhaus. From Cologne to Melbourne and now regional Victoria, Anette has crossed the globe and her creative journey is as rich as her personal one.
After more than 20 years in design and exhibiting in galleries internationally, Anette ended one career to begin another. It was her love and passion for helping other people heal and grow, to find greater health and opportunities that let her to become an accredited registered specialised practitioner and teacher in Kinesiology. Anette studied with the Kinesiology College of South Australia with the main focus on Neuro-Linguistic Kinesiology and Touch for Health.
Anette’s search for balance in all aspects of her life led her also to explore the world of Feng Shui and the establishment of Cocoon Feng Shui, a small business providing Feng Shui solutions.
“The application of Kinesiology and Feng Shui provides me with the perfect synergy. It is offering opportunities for everyone who is interested and willing to implement new strategies to create balance and harmony in their life. My aim is to support the individual to find their own way in their own time to create the transformation to a healthier, happier and more energetic way of living.”
Feng Shui = outer balance; Kinesiology = inner balance.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? … Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. … It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
