OUR FOUNDER, CO-DIRECTOR AND PRINCIPAL FACILITATOR

ANDREW LEITCH

From speaking engagement and executive coaching to retreats alongside indigenous healers, Andrew guides people to actualise their health, wellbeing and performance potential. He is passionate about ancient indigenous wisdom and the nexus between their wisdom and the latest scientific breakthroughs.

Andrew believes that our connection to our purpose and the energy that this connection gives us, is the fast track to tapping into our creative genius, our most connected and engaged states, and our fullest human potential. He combines the latest scientific research with indigenous wisdom. Together with open discussion about the power of spirit, heart, body and mind, he ventures deep into the heart of the business world with powerful and surprising results.

Andrew began his career as an internationally regarded professional dancer, performing in some of the most prestigious venues in the world. After 15 years on stage, Andrew studied psychotherapy. Andrew pursued his passion to bring together ancient indigenous knowledge and spent extensive time with the indigenous people of Australia and abroad, whilst completing formal training as a Body Psychotherapist with the Institute of Energy Science.

Andrew is a regular presenter at Eden Health Retreat and is invited to present at various conferences, retreats and workshops.

In addition to his work with individuals and organisations, Andrew leads retreats alongside Indigenous healers to Central Australia through his other business, Spirit Adventure Tours.

Andrew is available for speaking engagements, personal and executive coaching, business programs and workshops.
