mentoring & consulting

·  Mentoring  ·



A strategic plan for your life/work/project, over a specific period of time ~ incorporating spiritual/creative, intuitive/cognitive and practical/action perspectives and assignments. Two hour-long sessions by phone or skype. Optional follow-up support conversations.

“My Map of Guidance has given me a clarified sense of direction and purpose. The process has all the pleasure of a deep conversation with a soul-friend who asks great questions and really listens! The “map” that came out of this is full of profound insights and pointers for the coming 6 months, at once poetic, profound and practical.”

Shivon Robinsong. Choir Director, Getting’ Higher Choir, Ubuntu Choirs Global Network.

A Map of Guidance story published in lifeasahuman.org.



Define Your Guiding Purpose & Craft Your Emerging Future

  • Are you curious about where meaning and purpose come from?
  • Are you in a time of transition, on a threshold of something new?
  • Do you have more to offer or contribute?
  • Are you committed to your current work, but want to stay truer to yourself.

An intensive step-by-step process of self-enquiry, designed by Oriane Lee, that has launched hundreds of individuals and groups into their future with clarity, purpose, direction and productive outcomes.

One-day program. For groups in-person, and also by phone or Skype for individuals. Optional follow-up mentoring conversations. Read more…

“I participated in the one-day ‘Your Emerging Future’ program in Vancouver in 2014. I was transitioning in both my personal and international career life and feeling my purpose and direction were shifting…I felt uneasy. The program was enormously beneficial. The process of writing and sharing our values, and developing a personal compass, all contributed to an integral realignment. The visual clarity of what really matters to me struck me immediately. I left the program feeling rooted and stable, ready for the next journey.”  2014 Participant

Update 2017: “I’m writing you from North Africa with news that the overseas position in education I dreamed of has come to fruition. The position calls upon all the skills, qualities and prior experience that became so clear in Your Emerging Future. Thank you for opening the way forward.”

I trust Oriane Lee’s leadership instincts – her reliable guidance results in relationships that honour the integrity and dignity of everyone involved. Together we developed clear alignment of the personal with the organizational, which has profoundly influenced the Institute’s ability to be nimble and highly effective in the world.
