Anne-Marie Brest is a life coach, a pilgrim and a solopreneur. Originally from France, Anne-Marie has worked in Silicon Valley for over twenty years, first leading teams of engineers internationally to serve Cadence Design Systems’ customers to adopt best-in-class electronic design software and processes, then as the founder and manager of www.LesPetitsLivres.com, an online book rental business for children’s books in French. In 2017, Anne-Marie completed a professional coaching certification with New Ventures West and sold Les Petits Livres to start coaching full-time. In 2018, she participated in Mark Coleman’s Awake In The Wild training to learn more about mindfulness in nature. She is now taking these varied learnings and experiences, her love of walking in nature, her awe for the beautiful California landscapes and the sacred paths of Japan, into unique offerings of inner and outer pilgrimages: from walking and coaching sessions, to mindful hikes in the San Francisco and Monterey Bay areas all the way to pilgrimages in Japan, she integrates walking, silence, and the natural world with poetry and inquiry for the purpose of self-discovery and development of her fellow pilgrims.
