Mind, Body & Soul Wellness Program
What is Transformational Living
Transformational Living with Amanda is a heart-centered mind, body, and soul wellness program created for anyone navigating major life transitions such as loss, divorce, spiritual awakening, mid-life changes such as empty nesting, recovering from traumas, or entering an end of life journey. My specialty is working with women 18 and over, but this is not exclusively so, I also work with men who have a deep desire and intention to move forward and find healing. Through mindful and present interactions, you are led throughout each part of your sessions fully alert, aware, and present to the journey at hand with one-on-one support. My intention is to help you discover or perhaps rediscover your worth, joy, inner power, and how to create a deep sense of wholeness, harmony, and peace from an inner place of love that resides within.
This integrative program fuses both eastern and western modalities aimed in creating a transformative experience for your highest evolution. I recognize that the experience of being human can sometimes take us on a journey that is both difficult to process and overcome. Having support during a time of great life transitions can be of immense importance as you walk this path of change. For many, the challenges of integrating these changes can be hard to process alone and having someone to walk the journey with you can alleviate some of the anxiety and stress felt during these times.
Amanda Brutus-Phillips, born in Guyana, South America came to the United States at the age of 10 with her family to Bronx, New York. She received her B.S. in Biology at St. John’s University and her MS.Ed. in Educational Leadership from City College of New York. She worked as an educator for many years with teenagers before relocating to Charlotte, NC in 2000 with her husband and daughter at the time. Since her move to the Lake Norman area 18 years ago, Amanda recreated her life and saw her life transform in ways she least expected. She has become a transformative leader and spiritual speaker helping to assist others in their journey.

Amanda is a mother of two daughters, a freshmen and sophomore in college, Just losing her husband of 20 years only two years ago, Amanda is more inspired since her own deep experiences with grief and loss to help others navigate through the terrain of death, dying, grief, and the rebirth process. Through conscious awareness of self and lessons on how to live in the moment she hopes to guide each soul on their own unique journey.
Amanda approaches life from a constant practice of self inquiry, contemplative prayer, meditation, and reflection. She abides in the ever loving mystery of the Divine working in her life and steps into a daily practice of self love, forgiveness, compassion, and surrendering. The teachings of Jesus, Buddha, Eckhart Tolle, Richard Rohr, mystic poets such as Rumi and Hafiz all helps her to tap into the sacred space that resides within her as she continues to learn the art of being empty only to be filled with a deep sense of wonder and gratitude for all of life’s offerings, experiences, and journeys.
It’s my highest intention to be that compassionate guide who helps walk you over that bridge towards your best and highest self in body, mind, and soul, the path of inner healing. Through compassionate listening, movement therapy, breathwork, touch therapy, guided meditation and journaling, we will unlock any stuck or blocked patterns paving the way to a healthy, harmonious self. I don’t do any of the work for you or diagnosis, rather, I am present with you and support you as you stand on the precipice of creating the life you want to live.
Each transformational 90-min session is created with your healing in mind and I ask in return that you match that healing by aligning with your intention of being fully present and alert for every session. This program is an opportunity to bring every aspect of yourself to the present moment to be seen, honored, and respected.
Before your first session, we will have a consultation meeting to go over your intention, for me to listen to your story, and finally to develop a program that matches what you are looking for. You will be in this creative process every step of the way from beginning, middle, and end.
