The Leadership Quest

A profoundly life-changing program to satisfy our yearning for a deeper purpose.



The Leadership Quest

A profoundly life-changing program to satisfy your deep yearning for a moral purpose.




We all know how it feels to wake up in the morning and already feel the pressures and expectations of the day. A sense of feeling trapped and stuck by obligations. 

The feeling of wanting to just hide and move away from conflicts, tensions, fears, and that knot in the stomach that we don’t know how to get rid of. Some call it stress or anxiety.

Whatever we name this, those experiences can be even harder for leaders, aspiring leaders, influencers and cultural creatives because they carry many responsibilities and can feel the expectations from others.

Moreover, it is often assumed or even normalized that this is just all in the game for those who have taken on the role of leadership and change agency. People in leadership positions take on a lot of stress and pressure. 

The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way. We all know there’s another way of life, even if it feels out of reach… Anneloes has called this other way of life THE THIRD WAY, based on 5 years of scientific research and decades of inner transformation. 

That way of life where we flow, feel fulfilled and inspired. And also have joy, meaning, and peace with a clear vision, and a sense of belonging and connection. This is exactly what this Leadership Quest is all about. 

Join us for 7 weeks of life-changing experiences, deeper consciousness shifts, transformational leadership practices, visioning exercises, and a future design challenge ~ with Visionary Leader Dr. Anneloes Smitsman

So that you can thrive, reach your full potential and find that missing sense of satisfaction. The Leadership Quest includes: 

✔️leading-edge scientifically validated practices;

✔️indigenous development principles;

✔️wisdom transmissions;


✔️new paradigm scientific frameworks as foundational teachings for our evolutionary leadership development;

✔️And so much more.

This is not for everyone…

  • Courageous people who are committed to BE THE CHANGE and BECOME THE SYSTEMS our world needs thrive through this deeply transformational program.
  • Leaders, aspiring leaders, cultural creatives, and influencers deepen their transformation as well as the transformation of the systems they form part of, through THIRD WAY leadership strategies and higher consciousness practices. 
  • Catalysts and cultural creatives love how this Quest expands their future capacities and empowers them to work with the energies of transformation  without getting caught in the change process. 
  • Storytellers love the inspiration they receive through all the new narratives and rich stories that are shared through this Quest, from the wisdom of our ancient wisdom keepers to the future generations not yet born.   

This program provides essential nourishment, leadership foundations, navigational maps, and a community of incredible people from around the world who walk this journey with you! 


On 06 April 2020, Dr. Anneloes Smitsman will facilitate for the 4th time the LIVE online Leadership Quest, over a period of 7 weeks. This program has empowered many people from around the world and comes highly recommended by our most inspiring global leaders.

JOIN NOW and you also receive access to the recordings & resources of the previous Leadership Quest. Your enrolment will support us to finance our first global initiative of the Tipping Point System, our Music for Social Change Challenge designed to musically empower millions of people around the world.

What Students Say

What is Unique about the Leadership Quest?

You may have heard how people are only able to guide and mentor you to where they have gone themselves. What is unique about this Leadership Quest is the combination of the depth of transformation that Anneloes herself has lived though her unique life journey, as well her leading-edge scientifically validated practices, which she combines with indigenous development principles, wisdom transmissions, meditations, and new paradigm scientific frameworks.

Furthermore, the Quest is embedded in a larger strategy that we have named the Tipping Point System, to create more meaningful and impactful follow-up and partnership opportunities through which we can amplify each other's initiatives and projects. This Quest has been life-changing for many people from around the world who have previously participated. 

The Tipping Point Future City Design Challenge

The 2020 Leadership Quest includes a whole new feature, namely a Tipping Point design challenge for developing a protopia of a future city as a thrivability community. A protopia is a realizable vision that is not a utopian dream.

At the start of the Quest small teams are formed to work on the development of this protopia over the 7 weeks of the Quest. The Practice Sessions that take place each week on Thursday are utilised for this Design challenge, and provide support for going through the challenge in small teams. 

Together with your team you will be able to explore how to develop a transition trajectory for bringing your protopia of a future city into being. Each team will be given initial maps and frameworks to help your design process.

The weekly online Practice sessions are supported by Anneloes and Tipping Point team members to help you with your design challenge, and apply what you are learning in each Module to design your future city as a thrivability community.

Towards the end of the Quest all the design ideas from the various teams are combined into one Protopia transition plan, which will be presented through the Tipping Point System to the city and community leaders who form part of the Tipping Point alliance.  

What is New in the 2020 Leadership Quest?

This upcoming Quest has completely new course modules, compared to the previous Quests. The upcoming Quest also provides a practical implementation of the groundbreaking PhD research of Dr Anneloes Smitsman, "Into the Heart of Systems Change", which she completed last year at Maastricht University, the Netherlands. Her THIRD WAY leadership practices are based on this research. 

This upcoming Leadership Quest is also designed as the capacity development program for the EARTHwise Tipping Point Community. The EARTHwise Tipping Point System is bringing together storytellers, change-agents, musicians, film-makers, entrepreneurs, evolutionary leaders, movement makers, and generative mavericks from around the world.  It is becoming a Thrivability Movement of incredible people and organizations who share the same commitment of co-creating a world that works for all.  

The recordings and practices of the previous 2019 Quest are part of your enrolment package, and provide incredible inspiration and inner support for preparing for this upcoming live Leadership Quest that starts on 06 April 2020. You can go through the previous Quest already and be ready for the upcoming live Quest in April.

Overview of the 7 Modules



06 April 2020

Learn how to consciously work with the dynamics of time, rather than being played by it. Discover the new potentials that become possible during the Quickening phase of transition times, and in particular this transition time. Deepen your clarity of where you are now, what it is time for, and how this informs your next steps. Expand your consciousness of yourself as a living system, and how you form part of the systems that influence and impact on your life and work. Through this first Module you will learn how to develop a conscious relationship with time and become an initiator and catalyst for a new time. 

You will feel an increased sense of presence, a stronger state of flow, a deeper clarity of who you are and where you are now within the many changes that form part of this transition time.  From this deeper clarity and vision, it becomes easier to access your intuitive knowledge for where and how to move next. 

  • Learn how to work with the dynamics of time and this particular transition time.
  • Learn about the role of timing, flow states, and quantum practices for accessing new possibilities and parallel realities, for yourself and others.
  • Explore what is calling you from a future perspective. 
  • Consciously prepare now for tomorrow, and gracefully release what is no longer serving you.
  • Experience an out-of-time oversight and innersight perspective, through a guided visioning, to discover what is truly important in your life and in our world right now, and how this informs your next steps.

The “Third Way” is a unique transformational approach that Anneloes developed, based on her PhD research. The Third Way helps us to become conscious of the systemic barriers that we have inherited from growth archetypes of mechanistic worldviews and dualistic thinking patterns. The Third Way helps us to transform those inner and outer barriers to reach our greatest potential together.

Many old systems are breaking down, this also creates a space for the emergence of new systems. This transition phase between the old and new can be messy, and even violent if we do not consciously hospice the old while midwiving the new. Through this Module you will learn how the Third Way can help you to transform the dualistic belief systems and develop conscious agency for this crucial transition phase.

  • Learn how to diagnose and transform systemic thrivability barriers that are hindering your development and our evolutionary growth. 
  • Discover how your body is made to experience Life as a unified reality, and how your sensory organs have evolved to embody and apply this awareness.
  • Learn about the Trinity Principle and how to apply this for evolutionary alchemy to transform dualistic polarization. 
  • Learn how to hospice the old while midwiving the birth of the new.

We each have tipping point potential, as we each are a point of connection, and we have agency to act and change. During this transition times many different kinds of tipping points are set in motion. Tipping points create accelerated change in the systems we form part. The outcomes of those changes are often not known.  Some of the planetary tipping points that are now activated through our climate and biodiversity crisis may well trigger the collapse of entire civilizations. Through this module you will learn what it implies to become a tipping point for civilizational transformation, as a leadership responsibility.

If you are a leader, change agent, influencer, or catalyst working with transformational change this Module provides essential knowledge and wisdom for your role and impact in the world. You will learn how to recognize tipping point dynamics, and make the difference between collapse and transformation.  All the strategies that are shared in this module have also been applied in the design and implementation of the EARTHwise Tipping Point System.

  • Learn how to access and apply the consciousness states of trinity vision, for bringing clarity and evolutionary coherence in times of rapid catalytic change. 
  • Discover the science of evolutionary coherence and how to apply this to your tipping point potential. 
  • Explore what becomes possible when you become a generative tipping point for civilizational transformation. 
  • Learn how to work with the ancient martial arts wisdom of guiding the energy flows of tipping point dynamics, without getting caught in the wave.
  • Discover how through the harmonics of sound and music you can harmonize, synergise, and align tipping points.
  • Awaken your social artistry potential through the Tipping Point challenges that form part of our Tipping Point System.

Growth is intrinsic to Life ~ we all desire to grow! And yet, have we ever explored deeply where growth originates from and the various phases of growth, including death and dissolution? Anneloes makes the case in her PhD dissertation that the core reason for humanity's current sustainability crisis is because we do NOT understand growth, and have thus developed our societies through incomplete dualistig growth models that are harmful. Through this important Module you will learn about the growth dynamics and qualities of healthy living systems, and why this knowledge is essential for leaders and change agents.

This scientific knowledge is based on the PhD research of Anneloes where she explored for many years the principles and dynamics for thrivability growth, based "the cosmological infodynamics of the Implicate Order also known as the Akashic Field".

  • You will learn about the cosmological dimensions of growth as a torus, and how to work with the principles of non-linearity, complexity, and evolutionary coherence to develop thrivability growth systems, for your life and your work. 
  • You will learn how to apply the science of thrivability growth and the principles of healthy living systems, to various growth phases for transformational purposes.   
  • You will discover the various dimensions of evolutionary growth and why this is very different from the way our societies typically pursue growth.
  • You will be able to experience the implicate order growth dynamics of the Cosmic dimensions through a guided visioning session, which will revolutionise your life and your tipping point potential. 
  • You will learn how to create a system’s map for diagnosing and  transforming unhealthy growth patterns through the Third Way practices.

This Module helps you to develop your visionary and future capacities. Through Leading from Tomorrow you will learn how to access your future potentials and develop important intuitive sensing abilities for working with emergence.

Tomorrow already exists within the field of possibilities, today. In fact, tomorrow began 13,8 billion years ago when our Cosmos exhaled deeply and the playing field of our Universe came into being.

Tomorrow’s potentials are here within you right now. Yet, if you are not attuned to how the future reaches into you, you won't be able to consciously become future creative. Through this Module you will learn to access and develop the sensory organs of your future self. Leadership for transition times and transformational change requires this visionary capacity.  

  • Discover your future capacities by learning how to access and develop the sensory organs of your future self. 
  • Participate in a deeply moving guided meditation exercise as we journey into the future of a more evolved and mature humanity, to experience first-hand how you can lead from tomorrow (Prepare to have your worldview rattled to the core in this exercise).
  • Expand and deepen your visionary abilities. 
  • Learn how to access the field of possibilities from the dimensions beyond space-time.

Evolutionary leadership is one of the most important competencies for leaders to develop today. Through an evolutionary perspective of the role and purpose of leadership, we learn how to lead from tomorrow and create future-fit organizations, projects, and initiatives. 

If you have never heard of the concept of evolutionary leadership or want to deepen your capacity as an evolutionary leader, this is the perfect Module for you. Evolutionary leadership is grounded in the new paradigm scientific understanding of Life as unified reality. This unified reality expresses as an evolutionary field of possibilities that remains unified in consciousness inwardly, while it diversifies and become more complex outwardly as space expands and time flows. 

Through this Module we go into the heart of cutting-edge new paradigm sciences, and apply this to our practice, focus, and commitment as leaders and evolutionary change agents.   

  • Learn about the principles of evolutionary coherence, dynamic complexity, holotropic attractors, and evolutionary change through unity as diversity. 
  • Learn about the first laws of thermodynamics from an infodynamics perspective and how this informs a radically new understanding of what reality actually is. 
  • Learn about the unified field of consciousness as a holographic informational field. 
  • Discover what evolutionary development entails, and how we can each become tipping points for our evolutionary development. 
  • Deepen your capacity and practice as an evolutionary leader through system tools and leadership practices that help you to apply this evolutionary knowledge in your life and work. 
  • Discover how you can join the emerging Tipping Point Transition Team, of global evolutionary leaders trained to guide and ease humanity through our current transition.

Through this final Module we will share with each other what we have learned and discovered through this Quest and present the protopia transition plan that you have have helped to develop together during the 7 weeks of our Practice sessions. During this Module we will also explore how we can share this protopia of a future city for a thrivability community with key people around the world. We will complete the Quest through a beautiful ceremony of celebration and gratitude.

“The wisdom shared is very profound and life-changing”

I was blessed to participate in this groundbreaking Leadership Quest. I have been transforming intensely for 12 years and have attended many high-quality leadership development programs, and I have to say this was the most inspiring program I have attended. The wisdom shared is very profound and life-changing. It is the perfect program for leaders who have already done a lot of transformation work and are ready to access deep wisdom so they can play a key role in awakening humanity and helping it rise in consciousness.

~Stephane Leblanc, CEO & Founder of the International Centre for Conscious Leadership


“I am eager for more of the initiation”

I feel I was initiated in the field that Anneloes brings forth and I have so much gratitude for this. Because of the profound nature of the times that we are in, we are of course being initiated but we don’t have very many places to go to for entering into initiation that are a through-line from the ancient wisdom traditions and the Indigenous traditions in a way that is so alive in Anneloes. I am eager for more of the initiation, and I am eager to go back into the meditations, to go back into the field and to receive it again and again. The meditations are so profound and they continue to work you. I am looking forward to deepening in this practice. For coming into conscious leadership and to be of the greatest service  that you can possibly be, you can’t get there without this kind of support. 

~ Sheri Herndon, ecosystem architect and evolutionary leader


"I found your mentorship of great help"

Thank you Anneloes and EARTHwise Centre for all your support. I found your mentorship of great help this summer as the racing competition I have competed in this season has been very trying at times. I have learned that there are many ways to see the world and people. If you look for the good, you will find it, and if you look for the bad, you will find that, too. I am now focussing on looking for the good.  Everyone experiences hardship or sadness of some sort, but it is how you can engage the uncertain times that matters.  Support through programs like yours allows people to heal and discover a deeper understanding of themselves. Thank you, as I genuinely appreciate the help you put forward to bring personal peace and harmony into the world.

“What she brought was just what I had been longing for”

I felt like I stepped into a sacred circle of women, where I knew I was held lovingly and safely as I delved into the questions I was carrying in my heart. During this time together, I unearthed some golden nuggets because of the unique context, perspective, teachings, practices, and principles that Anneloes brings in such a beautiful, powerful, and heart-centered way. It was apparent that the richness of these teachings was distilled from her many years steeped in Ancient Wisdom teachings, Indigenous ways, and current scientific research. What she brought was just what I had been longing for so I might more deeply explore and discover some answers to questions I had been contemplating for quite some time. It was as if some missing pieces of a puzzle I had been working on for many years were shown to me, and as they found their place, the entirety of the picture I couldn’t quite fully see now came into view in all of its beauty and wholeness. I feel immensely honored, blessed, and grateful for having had this opportunity to embark on this quest with Anneloes as my guide.

~ Dr. Meredith Lowry, Osteopathic integrative physician, transformational coach and facilitator


"In truth, I think the quest is a gift that keeps on giving"

When I began the leadership quest, I had initially been disorganized and scattered, likely a result of summer school and  sickness. I had not been able to attend the live sessions due to  summer school, but I was able to watch the recordings in my own time. Starting with the first season, I could feel a gradual, but meaningful change begin to occur. Through each of the lessons, the meditations, and the self-reflection, I learned more and more not only about myself but also about perspectives I hadn’t considered before and ways of looking at the world. Other things I had known before but hadn’t truly explored until going through the exercises, being more introspective and pondering the meaning of those thoughts.  Although, I have learned much from the quest and “finished” it, I think there’s still more to the lessons and teachings for me to discover, even now. As such, I will be going back into the lessons to review and think differently about what is in them.  I will be using what I’ve learned and integrated it into my life, in day-to-day circumstances, hard times, and even in ways I haven't thought of yet. In truth, I think the quest is a gift that keeps on giving, and although I hadn’t finished viewing the lessons until recently, I predict I will be coming back to it in the future.

"Truly amazing, providing such wonderful ways to be conscious and synchronous, to flow and grow"

The Leadership Quest that I began with like-minded learners has enlightened me on many levels from personal matters to matters from others around me. There were issues that I was dealing with at one point, and due to the insights I’ve gathered from the others in the group as well as from myself, I was able to identify and properly handle them, and I learned from them, having solved them! The support I received and continue to receive inspirational learning and it helps me find my own clarity, even if I don’t know the answers, as I’m confident in myself even more than before! The skills and tools that I’ve received are truly amazing, providing such wonderful ways to be conscious and synchronous, to flow and grow!
