Anne is a living, breathing university of the sacred. She creates art with soul, and with her guidance, I give form to my creative force and highest self. Anne honors the sacred within and without, and her reflections help me re-member my most divine parts to create even more *magic* in my life. Anne is my spiritual diving instructor. No matter how deep I desire to venture, she guides me with incredible authenticity and integrity. Her genius is generous and inspires languages, images, and tools to build strong emotional and spiritual homes no matter where I physically reside. With a capacious understanding of darkness, a deep connection to truth and the Divine Feminine, Anne helps shape the lives and talents of some of the most creative women, men, and children on earth, and I am blessed to be amongst them.
Anne’s brilliance radiates through the phone in every session from the moment we connect. I’ve worked with lots of coaches and therapists over the years, and Anne has always made the biggest, most dramatic impact on my life. Her unique perspective on everything always leaves me feeling uplifted, hopeful, and clearer. Anne’s dream analysis and interpretation is particularly valuable, and teaches me so much. It’s like Anne takes the nuggets of goodness within me, brings them to the surface, then adds sparkles and more light. Anne has helped me separate from my old negative stories and has given me hope over and over again in many areas of my life. She has a keen ability to take what’s on my mind when it feels like a garbled mess and pluck out the gems, shine them, and string them together in a way that makes beautiful sense and creates space to move forward. It is because of her that I have a relationship with my mother. She has helped me make my life better in so many ways. Most importantly, Anne has helped me see and shine my own light with her great sense of humor, her beautiful empathy, and her unending kindness.
It’s true I’ve navigated career changes with Anne — from seedling of an idea to internship to new career — greatly increasing my earnings and my confidence along the way. However, the reason I’ve returned to her work over the past ten plus years is both more significant and more subtle. I find a conversation with Anne illuminates the very heart of whatever matter with which I am grappling. Her keen intellect, integrity, and astute emotional intelligence consistently reveal new insights, provide tangible strategies I am able to employ in my day-to-day life, connect me with a larger community full of invaluable resources, and ultimately broaden my perspective. It is this shift in my perception and strengthened capacity to participate ever more beautifully in the sweetness and the bittersweetness of life for which I am most grateful.
I am so grateful for what I learned about myself with my time with Anne. Anne had a beautiful way of allowing me to recognize in myself what she already saw in me. She saw my strength, courage and beauty way before I could. Through her guidance, I was able to recognize these qualities within myself and take ownership of them to help me on my healing journey with cancer. Anne held space for me while I explored the young wounded child who still believed she was “not good enough or worthy enough of anyone’s love.” She always reminded me that I was “walking a heroine’s journey” and to use my journey to inspire and empower others. My time with Anne was one of the greatest gifts I gave to myself! Thank you, Anne, for what you do.
I highly recommend working with Anne Davin to anyone who is ready to break free from limits and embrace an authentic life of joy, impact, and meaning. In working with Anne, I gained solid and practical guidance in the realms of relationships, as well as being able to more fully embrace my professional vision. She also helped me to recognize disempowering and highly habitual patterns in my life. But working with Anne was even more than all of that. Anne held up a mirror to my deepest self, the part of me that was aching to have a voice. She helped me to be more of who I truly am, and to profoundly connect to others and life as a whole. Anne has an incredible capacity to listen deeply and to see far beyond the surface. Working with Anne helped catalyze a profound awakening to what is most meaningful in my life. It felt as if I could finally come home to myself. I have found a place of profound peace within myself. I now “get,” in my bones, that I am capable of living my life in alignment with my deepest truth. Words alone cannot begin the express my gratitude.
Anne is a mentor and has supported me on my path of profound personal transformation. She extracts the Divine essence from seemingly mundane experiences and demonstrates how I can choose more consciously to infuse my daily life with the Sacred. Anne offers a compassionate perspective along with tools and techniques to embody not merely the idea, but the experience of the Divine Feminine. Working with Anne, I have become more grounded in my own heart, my own wisdom. From that space, I am inspired to heal my wounds, move through my limitations, and create a Divine life for myself.
Working with Anne has changed my life in so many ways that I could not have imagined possible one year ago. Anne is a masterful coach and mentor. She listens beyond the words I am speaking and gets to what I really mean (even when I am unsure of it). This has enabled me to not only uncover old wounds that were never healed but actually heal them. These were things that were keeping me stuck in my life, both professionally and personally. With her guidance and coaching I’ve been able to transform myself and my life from the inside out – something I would have never thought possible before I began working with her. She is a true gift.
I have worked with Anne over the last two years…tumultuous years for me. In 2014, I lost my older sister due to preventable medical errors, which cut very deep since I am a practicing physician. Anne has helped me nurture my introverted nature into a quietly outspoken health care leader, all the while re-engaging my softer feminine side, that I buried during my medical school training. I come away from my work with Anne seeking more and feeling energized, confident, and loved.
From the moment I heard Dr. Anne Davin speak at an event, I knew I wanted to work with her because of her ability to put my personal story into archetypal context. I wanted to understand my life, my struggles, my evolution in a grander context. That was in 2007 – and I have scheduled regular appointments with her ever since. She has become my trusted guide and midwife through my most painful challenges and my most ecstatic celebrations. A session with Anne is more like a shamanic journey than a therapy or coaching session. I am transformed and expanded every single time I work with her.
Anne is the most brilliant woman I have ever heard speak in my entire life, and likely in many lifetimes beyond this one. I have savored every opportunity to be in her presence for almost 10 years as a student, client, friend and co-creator. Every experience has left the exact same imprint me – an embodied memory of the holy. She orients you back to the ancient eternal pulse, as old as the wind, while masterfully helping you understand how to integrate those ephemeral moments in a modern life. She does not over-romanticize the indigenous cultures she has been intimate with, but offers the collective prayer for understanding that is at the center of every conscious human experience. I offer my whole mind, whole body, whole soul recommendation (and encouragement!) to follow the call to work with Anne as soon as you feel it.
Anne has played a pivotal role in the evolution of my mind, body, and spirit. Her depth and breadth of understanding of the natural world, use of dream analysis, and archetypal understanding in conjunction with her Jungian foundation makes her invaluable. I understand myself better, and have gained clarity on my contribution to the greatest good. Anne has helped me embrace my light and shadow, and use them to support and serve. Anne is the embodiment of the Divine Feminine, which has allowed that denied aspect of myself to enliven once again and bring wholeness to me. Working with Anne is a true blessing!
Dr. Anne Davin is a spring of clarity, a fountain of indigenous wisdom, a stream of eloquence, and an ocean of heart-centered proficiencies. Her integrity matches her immense wit and generosity of spirit.
Anne has been a real joy to teach with. She brings a depth, beauty and eloquence to her work that is indeed rare. Such a blessing in this world to us all!
Every time Anne opens her mouth, I want to record every bit of wisdom she utters. Anne Davin is one of the most genius people I’ve ever met, and the scope of her experience in the arenas of psychotherapy, spirituality, and the Divine Feminine makes her the perfect teacher and coach for those seeking to change the world and help others step into their truest selves.
