My name is Flo Ankah (born Florence Annequin) and I am excited that you are taking the time to discover my healing arts universe through this website.
What is it?
ThetaHealing® is a philosophy for physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. A direct application of quantum physics, it is the act of observing, during a deep meditation and using focused thought, that allows a transformation in the energetic field and the DNA of the cells. Becoming the conscious author of your reality, you are able to activate your personal potential and attract experiences and relationships in alignment with your personal goals and life purpose. With ThetaHealing, you can learn how to heal yourself and others, work with your subconscious patterns, and see the world in terms of energy that you can shift.
Slice of my story:
I was born in the South of France, close to nature and curious about artistic expression even though I grew up in a rural area. My father has a dairy farm and gave me his sense of values, his authenticity; my mother studied medicine, astrology, and shared with me her exploration of natural healing techniques and thirst for self-knowledge. I moved to New York City at seventeen after obtaining my science and biology baccalaureate.
I wanted to study everything (and still do), but I chose dance—performance, because it seemed the most challenging, to work with my heart and body, to live a life where tomorrow is unknown, as opposed to accomplishing goals, which could become boring in the long run. Along the path I obtained my green card as an actress, graduated from Merce Cunningham in modern dance, and in improvisation comedy from UCB. I created solo musical performances for Joe’s Pub/The Public Theater and Feinstein’s/54 Below, received awards for my art house films, did a lot of fancy voiceover work, and I’m a member of the Dramatists Guild and the Television Academy… blah-blah-blah. I also failed miserably a couple of times, but basically I’m high on Creativity.
At an early age I had wonder towards spirituality. Got a book from a priest (my grandpa’s best friend) about parables of all cultures, and another one about Théo traveling the world and discovering religions through the perspective of a child. In 2005 I started my study of yin yoga and prayanama with my mentor Amber Wilson, which is the foundation of how I perceive spiritual expansion, a life-long process. Around the same time, I took my first ThetaHealing classes with Vianna Stibal and was intrigued by the fact that change could be rapid… wait, instantaneous. I also attended a few Vipasana reatreats with the awesome Bhante Rahula, and receive Darshan whenever Amma comes to town.
Truth is I was pretty guarded about this personal process, but after performing in Los Angeles at the Shrine Auditorium with an all-star cast for a musical about enlightenment “Loving the Silent Tears,” I realized I didn’t need to be shy, to separate my life as a performer and my spirituality, that I could simply Be – all of me. Wholeheartedly committed to empowering you to live your highest potential, and expand into the multi-dimensional being that you are, I have such gratitude to be included in this adventure with you.
