Transforming challenges into growth
My mission is to empower transformation with compassion.
Hello! I am GerlieMa Lee.
I’m Filipino Chinese.
I’ve lived and studied in the Philippines, Hong Kong, Canada, the US, and Vietnam.
Living apart from my parents as an infant and moving to different countries as a child was a challenging experience for me. My bodyweight dropped a lot, as did my self-image and sense of self-worth.
In the mid-1990s, I had a successful career working at a US Fortune 500 Company and a comfortable lifestyle, vacationing at nice resorts, shopping, and hanging out in cool places with friends. However, deep inside, I felt deeply sad, anxious, shame, with a low self-esteem.
In search of joy and true happiness, I embarked on my personal development journey.
What started a great challenge turned out to be an opportunity to learn, heal, and grow.
I learned from spiritual teachers, healers, mystics, and human potential leaders and travelled in different parts of the world to look for answers, for the truth of what it means to live a joyful, meaningful, purpose-filled life.
I spent my days working very hard at my job and most of my evenings and weekends attending workshops and meditation sessions.
I met Eckhart Tolle, who was my first spiritual teacher at a retreat in Hong Kong.
I attended Deepak Chopra's retreat in the US. He introduced me to Ayurveda, which is India's ancient science of life.
I’ve meditated daily for over 20 years.
I've attended Thich Nhat Hanh’s summer retreat in Plum Village, France, and was in awe with the experience of practicing mindful walking with this great master.
I’ve sat under the Bodhi tree in Bodhgaya, where the Buddha achieved enlightenment. I’ve sat with over 10,000 monks and nuns to attend His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s teachings there.
I learned that in order to love others fully, I must know how to love myself. When I realized that joy and true happiness comes from within us, my inner work practice deepened.
In 2013, I followed an inner calling to guide people on their personal and spiritual development journey. I went back to school and earned a master's degree in Transpersonal Psychology, and I started coaching & facilitating meditation sessions.
Today, I am living my dreams, helping people embrace their beauty and their inner power, and live their best version as I strive to do the same. This brings me joy, meaning, and fulfillment!
I believe that we are born on earth for a reason, and that we have an inherent desire to heal and grow.
I learned that in order to achieve our full potential, we must train our mind, listen to our heart, and connect to our higher Self.
Here’s how I can help you with that.
I am a guide on your inner journey. As a trainer, an educator, a life coach, and a mentor, I facilitate group and individual transformation by offering private life coaching and mentoring sessions, workshops, and meditation classes and retreats.
When working with people, I emphasize being fully present with them and being compassionate, open, and honest. I honor each person’s unfolding process, and I meet them where they are.
What people love most about me is the calm presence that my voice radiates.
I’m the first person in Vietnam to be certified in the Canfield training methodology, trained under Jack Canfield’s direct mentorship to facilitate group and individual transformation to help people achieve their full potential.
I've completed a 2-year Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program, certified by both the Awareness Training Institute and the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California at Berkeley.
Mindfulness, meditation, creative expressions are the core of the work that I offer to individuals, organizations, and institutions.
In 2016, I created the “Awareness, Creativity, and Transformation” (ACT) Program while studying a master’s program in Transpersonal Psychology. It's a heart-centered transformational process for personal and spiritual development.
Why I Do What I Do…
My life purpose is to inspire and empower people to achieve their full potential with love and compassion for the highest good of all concerned.
My vision is a world where highly aware people are inspired to believe in themselves and their abilities, and empowered to realize their dreams and live their best version.
My deepest passion is to help people embrace their beauty and realize their true worth, to develop heart-centered relationships with themselves and others, and to cultivate compassion and mindful awareness so that they can create a joyful and fulfilled life.
I am immensely grateful for the knowledge, wisdom, and love that I've received from my teachers, healers and thought leaders from different parts of the world!
Live your passions,
Love yourself, and
Light up the world
with your loving presence!
