Your journey is unique to you - we help you walk it.

Why The Tall Journey

The Tall Journey evolved as a way to help clients navigate the increasing levels of uncertainty, layers of complexity, with the capacity to reset, reboot and recalibrate what is truly important to them. Looking at how to interweave strengths, powers, concepts and wisdoms of -  ‘old’ with ‘new’,  ‘indigenous’ with ‘modern’, ‘corporate’ with ‘community’.

We are often governed by expectations – our own, others, society – which, whilst well intended, may be limiting us from living our ‘story’ in ways that enable us to fulfil our purpose.

When we live our life by our own decree, not by the phantoms of the past, there is a deeper sense of meaning.

The Tall Journey portfolio of programs helps you find this meaning. The programs are grounded, complex in their simplicity and more importantly, based on practical experience.



The Tall Journey process will guide you to discover answers to these questions:

• What is it that you Stand for?

• How will you enable your Stand?

• How will your life be when you Stand Tall in your Truth?

When we define and embrace our unique talents and know what we are here to be and do, there is a sense of ‘knowing’, and peace that all within feels aligned.

Anna designed The Tall Journey programs for individuals who have the desire and courage to take a deeper dive into themselves with the intention of enabling and embodying their truest self. In these times of exponential change, standing tall requires one to fully embrace their story and connection with who they BE not just what they Do.

Transformational work is at the heart of the Tall Journey programs.


Creative Tension is needed to grow!

Our view of the world invisibly influences every aspect of our lives. It impacts the sense we make of our organisations, our work, our relationships and most importantly, ourselves.

It requires us to own our edge.

The core of the Standing Tall coaching process is designed to find your edge – that which sets you apart. It is transformational. It doesn’t just change what we know, it changes the way we know, enabling new capabilities for managing complexity, stress, and change creatively and with deeper insight.

By gaining insight into the characteristic ways we make sense of our worlds, we become more aware, take more ownership, have more choices and a bigger perspective on our lives, the organisations with whom we are connected, and our contributions to society.

This enables us to engage in ‘wise choosing’ , and to shape the ‘story’ we want to live.

“If you do not acknowledge your power for shaping the future, who else is there?”

Our Walking Tall retreat is designed to take you out of your day-to day reality and immerse you in an environment which gives you time to reflect and redefine while you 'walk your path'. It will provide you the opportunity to reconnect with what is important to you.

Each of us has a path to walk and when we are walking it, there is a deeper sense of fulfilment. A sense of knowing, that goes beyond normal ways of knowing.

The retreat is held over three days in the gorgeous South Island of New Zealand and limited to small numbers.

Whilst the retreat is for small groups, it is very individually focused.

It is your journey!

We are also holding these in Japan in 2021. 

It will be an experience you wished you had done sooner.

Your 'mana' - your presence - is everlasting, untouchable.

We are taught to measure success by what you can see, but what if manifestation begins with what you can’t see?

Being Tall Intensive is a program for those who are ready to go deeper and own their deeper uniqueness.

This is not for the faint-hearted, but, is designed for those who are ready to answer a call to reawaken from a deep amnesia and to begin to experience, once again, the deep mystery of our lives.

Your 'mana'  derives from a developed sense of passion, integrity, authenticity and aliveness. A place, where tapping into your deeper intuitive self allows you to operate from your realm of creativity which is essential for Being Tall.

The process can only emerge when we trust our deeper self and let go of the need for control and structures in every part of our lives.

The Tall Journey is designed to do this.

If we are to shape our world, we must first shape ourselves.
