Ever since I was a child, I have been aware of an invisible ‘world’ or realm, which is not separate from the visible world as we know it. My fascination and curiosity for this unseen realm and how it influences and shapes all that we consider real and created, stems from that time.
The various studies and practices I engaged in over the years are in fact connected. Studying fashion design helped me to explore the world of ideas and creation, and working in this field taught me how to bring them into manifestation. Through practicing the arts of Chinese Medicine, Qigong and Tai Chi, I learned to view and experience the body as a visible expression of, and connection to, the unseen world of energy. Immersing myself in various forms of yoga and Buddhist meditation practice, further deepened my understanding of the mind in relationship to the body.
To see intelligence and beauty as an inherent part of nature and human beings, provides the inspiration for my work. It is a reflection of a deep connection to life, which fills me with wonder and gratitude.
Angelic Pieplenbosch practiced fashion design in the Netherlands for ten years, before exploring the field of healing and wellbeing, focusing on an Eastern approach to training and aligning body and mind. She is a certified acupuncturist and has extensive training in Qi Gong, yoga and meditation. She has been sharing her knowledge via group retreats and private consultations since 2002.
Angelic moved to Johannesburg in 2010, founded her company HeartCore, and together with her husband Alan, created a (food) garden, a contemplative studio and a Bed&Being. It is an environment that offers tranquility in the midst of the busy city – a space where one can become whole, inspired and creative.
