You’re here for a reason.

Hi, we’re Hans and Jennifer.

Coaches, spiritual mentors, founders of Illuminated Space and avid believers in YOU. Together, we’re here to bridge the gap between spiritual theory and practical habits to provide you with real-world tools that help you live a balanced, harmonious and peaceful life.

…feeling empty, no matter how much you fill your life up with stuff.

…feeling lonely, even when you’re surrounded by people.

…feeling pain, even when you try everything you can to self-soothe.

But we believe in choosing to see challenges as opportunities, and difficult stages of our lives as Earth School classrooms divinely designed just for us.

Just like any learning experience though, there are ups and downs. Many of which are difficult, if not impossible, to navigate by yourself.

Which is why we’re here.

We simplify spirituality and demystify self-love so you can heal spiritual blockages and create abundant love energy in your life.

Hans' Story

I grew up in a tropical paradise with everything: Sun, sea and a happy family. It was perfect… until one day it wasn’t. When I was 13, a civil war broke out in the Solomon Islands. Life went from carefree to careful, as the home we knew and loved turned into a horrifying war-zone.

My mom and I escaped to the United States, taking one of the last flights out of the Solomons before one of the militias took over the airport and shut it down, while my dad stayed behind to look after the business. And although my mom and I were safe, I felt like somewhere in the air on the way over, I’d lost not just my home, my friends and my father… but also myself.

In the states, I had to shed who I was and become somebody new. I forced myself to forget the death and destruction we’d left behind and focus on my future. It worked. I lived in a bubble. Then, when I was 25, my father passed away.

In Jeet Kune do (a martial arts style created by Bruce Lee), my instructor emphasized leaving the ego at the door. This, for me, was a practice all about getting out of your own way and connecting with your higher self. It was something I would become familiar with over and over again, especially after an emotional relationship break-up when I was 30. But during this time, in seeking to rediscover myself, I found Jennifer.

Her guidance and support helped me realize what I had been missing all along: love energy. She taught me that I had the medicine for my own suffering within me. I just had to learn how to take it.

It was like I was recreating paradise… but instead of it being a place outside of me, it became a place inside of me.

This significant shift in my paradigm guided me to learn Reiki. As with all of our Transformational Life Coaches, I’m a certified Reiki II practitioner.

Today, I help others get out of their own way, so they too may connect with their highest self and live a joyful, kickass life.

Jennifer's Story

When I was a kid, I thought it was normal to remember your past lives. It wasn’t something I second-guessed. At least… not right away. Not until my Catholic school teacher made me realize that, for many, for most, it wasn’t normal. And if I wanted to fit in, I had to pretend that I was normal too.

The alternative? Not fitting in? It wasn’t an option. So I traded my memories and awareness for normalcy, unaware of how much pain that decision would bring me.

This ‘pretending’ to be someone, someone that I wasn’t, continued. And when it came to time to choose a college pathway, I opted for acting. Studying acting at NYU was about so much more than school or even a possible career. It was about healing and processing pent-up pain and emotions. But it wasn’t enough. Not yet.

I began to objectify myself, straying further and further from my true self. I was a pretty face, a commodity, not a person. So the Universe began reflecting my beliefs. Acting agencies put a monetary value on my worth. Customers tipped me on what they felt I deserved. And finally, when I was forcibly held down and raped, I was given the horrific, essential wake-up call I needed. It was new life or no life, and nothing in between.

I quit my job, packed a bag and ended up in a tent on a monkey sanctuary in Tzaneen, South Africa. I moved into a rural village, made beautiful friendships and spent time as a bartender in a bush bar called The Half Human. I stopped pretending. And I started remembering.

Eventually, I moved to Los Angeles and continue cultivating my spiritual life amongst a backdrop of bartending (aka Bootcamp for Energy Workers) and learned how to own – and master – being a highly sensitive empath.

I was mentored by a profoundly talented soul coach and modern-day shaman, and I dove into various energy, healing, coaching and spiritual teachings such as qigong, Quantum Healing, Yuen and Now Healing methods. I studied at the University of Santa Monica, which offers a rare Master’s degree in spiritual psychology. I became a Reiki Master, Theta Healer, and modern-day Shaman.

With my awareness returning and clarity sharpening, my journey was coming full circle. I was coming home.

Now it was my time to help others do the same.
