What is Hopeology?
Are you happy and healthy? Could life be better?
Hopeology provides a unique and positive perspective by sharing the discoveries, theories and techniques we used for Anne's amazing journey from despair and illness to full health. She is the powerful proof that what we eat, think and say makes a difference in our spiritual, emotional and physical well-being.
Hopeology seminars, workshops and recordings bring self-empowerment and peace to any life situation. The value of Hopeology is priceless! (Anne has gone from a wheelchair to a Black Belt Candidate in Muay Thai Kick Boxing.)
We offer presentations to groups and companies.
"Anne is an incredible woman inside and out. Learning her journey and success amazes me more and more each time I hear it. She's helped me bring hope to all situations and encounters in my life; from the simplest frustration like being stuck in traffic, to major life decisions, Anne has taught me to take a deep breath and hope for the best. Through Anne's friendship and teaching I've learned the importance of thoughts and perspective. I love that Hopeology is an ongoing process, a never ending journey that although I may not always have complete control of where this life takes me, I'll always have to power and strength to stay calm and positive; I'll always have hope, even in the darkest light."

"Hi Anne and Maura,
I wanted to thank you again for a great program last night. I have been inspired to improve my exercise routine without fear. I will also try yoga for the first time in 12 years. Anne, you are a success story and I am glad to have met you. Maura, you offered an amazing and rare friendship with encouragement beyond the limits. It was great to watch you both interact with such admiration and respect for each other. I will invite good friendships in my life and not shy away because of my illness after watching you both. Thank you for touching on many resources for healing. I will better myself because I went to your talk last night. It gave me such an uplifting boost. Thank you." N. Wolff
"Anne and Maura have a way of telling their personal stories with such presence and enthusiasm that it's contagious. They've gleaned the shiniest gems from so much of the world's most awake spiritual traditions and they share them in such an immediate way. I am personally grateful for their spirit and wisdom." G.Grundei
"You are both amazing and inspiring women! I really enjoyed the evening's presentation. So much so, that on the drive home, my friends and I decided we would get together every month to practice some of the things you discussed. It's our way of spreading hope and keeping the positive energy flowing. As moms, our lives are so busy. We forget to take time for ourselves physically, emotionally and spiritually. Hopeology is an amazing philosophy for life. It's something I will try to put into practice every day. I especially liked the presentation on "the State of Mind". We are our own worst enemies sometimes. Recognizing that the power to change our lives for the better lies within ourselves is half the challenge. The rest is believing in ourselves. Our positive thoughts, words, and perceptions when exercised regularly, can help us overcome anything. Thank you for a wonderful evening of hope!" M. Denton - Littleton,
