Meet Anne-Marie Charest

Welcome! My name is Anne-Marie and I am the founder of Peaceful Soul Transitions. My journey and passions have led me to help members of my community and from around the world to navigate some of life’s challenging transitions, may it be through life’s rites of passages, crisis’s, spiritual emergences, or at end-of-life. Each movement required a subtle, and at times not so subtle, transition of the soul (or psyche), which may be navigated with greater ease. My gift is to offer tools and support for more peaceful transitions.

The soul often considered the incorporeal or spiritual 'breath' which animates all living organisms, and is also understood in modern psychology as the soul/mind, can only be viewed as inseparable from our earthly body. It is for this reason that Peaceful Soul Transitions pride itself in utilizing experiential embodied or somatic approaches to provide the most beneficial and powerful transformations. Find out how I can support you in your journey!

Through private sessions, family system healings, bereavement counseling, group workshops, and speaking engagements, Peaceful Soul Transitions offers the opportunity to explore resources necessary to ensure the creation of sacred healing spaces in order to foster transformative shared death experiences and conscious dying. I specialize in helping family members navigate the challenging process of
end-of-life care.

“Spiritual care is not a luxury for a few; it is the essential right of every human being, as essential as political liberty, medical assistance, and equality of opportunity”
(Sogyal Rinpoche, 2002)
