About Andrea Filip
Who and What am I? I am, like everyone else around me, a soul with a human experience.
And so, every day, I discover and experience what it means to be a Human Being.
And so, every day, I discover and experience what I takes to be Human and Soul.
In my words, but by listening generously and friendly to other wonderful people, you can read and see more about me:

As a game in my personal life I chose (and was chosen by them) to be the mother of a little boy and a little girl, two extraordinary souls. They teach me how to melt in love.
I also chose to be a wife, and I have a husband who completes me, along with whom I have grown emotionally, professionally, intellectually, and spiritually. Together we discover the world around us and … new worlds, which are becoming more and more fascinating. He was at my side when I began my personal development journey in 2004, participating in my first “Landmark Education” class.
I understood that the solid foundation of any relationship (with others or with ourselves) consists in integrity accompanied by authenticity. I didn’t know then that this first class would trigger an internal war between Who I thought I was, and Who I really am.
I began to wish for and feel that I could have an extraordinary life. A sort of super-power and I mean an inner power that resides in tranquility, peace of mind and love. I worked to get them. A lot. I worked with myself. I cleaned up. I forgave others and I forgave myself. I have brought integrity into all my relationships. And it was not the most pleasant thing to do, nor the easiest. But … IT WAS WORTH IT.
And since then I have understood and seen around me that integrity is a very precious value and virtue. It provides a framework for living our lives harmoniously and elegantly. And when we are surrounded by people who also value, honor and live with integrity, life works. Projects work. Relationships work. Whenever something does not work, it is because there is no Integrity.
Around the same time, I started enjoying Osho’s writings. There was a great revolution in my brain. It has broken many paradigms for me, a great many, one after the other. It “destroyed” the Catholicism within me, and, instead, opened my eyes to spirituality. A dogma-free spirituality which allows me to ask who, where, and what is God like. And I liked the answers I found. I since then left behind the ” do not doubt!” belief replacing it with: “feel!”, “discover!”, “experiment!”, “explore!”, “create!” … Be! … It does exist! … You are!
Then I discovered the Presence. Somehow, as in all happy stories, I came to read Eckhart Tolle’s book, “The Power of Now.” It was in 2005, a few good years before the book became a bestseller and reached Romania. Then I was lucky enough to get to the US and buy his second book, “A New Earth.” To that, I have added some 40GB of audiobooks and videos with Eckhart, and found in me Harmony and Peace. And I love them! Before, I was looking for adrenaline, now I choose serotonin 😉 Is it because I have matured, I wonder?
In 2007, the same friend who recommended “The Power of Now,” texted me just a book title and an author: Power vs. Force – David Hawkins. Obviously, I read this book, then all books by David Hawkins, and became a great fan. I remember how thoroughly I enjoyed every line of the book! I didn’t understand them all, and whoever read it knows what I mean. Hawkins was an American psychotherapist with a highly successful professional career and a man of great culture! He developed the so-called “Scale of consciousness.” This scale is a map of our spiritual evolution that helps us see where we are on our current path of growth, and how we can take the next steps toward Enlightenment, or simply How we can become better people.
His books offer a valid methodology and a technique (kinesiology) for accessing universal knowledge and the truth about everything. Reading it, it was as if in my mind the pieces of a gigantic puzzle were reorganized, and I understood how the world works. Why people act as they act. Also, an idea that constantly resonates in my mind is his answer to the question: How to change the world? And David, with his subtle and profound spiritual humor, replies: “Please don’t try to change the world. Because the world you see doesn’t even exist! “
Returning to a down to earth dimension, I have always been a perspective opener. The role I assumed was to show people that there are plenty of options in whatever they want, that it is okay to explore them and then choose what resonates deeply with their being. The beneficiaries of the projects we have organized have invariably extended their vision of the world, both external and internal. They saw, that they are surrounded by a multitude of jobs, business opportunities, resources (money, time, people, ideas and knowledge). And in their inner world, they remembered or discovered extraordinary riches: passion, creativity, inspiration, power and energy.
I am born and raised in Timisoara, a charming city with friendly, kind, and responsible people. I chose well.
I graduated from the “Grigore Moisil” High School of Computer Science because … it was the best high school in town and how could I have chosen anything else?
Then I attended the College of Economic Sciences (now renamed FEAA) with a major in International Relations. It was challenging and a period of new endeavors. There, I was fortunate enough to meet extraordinary people, to whom I am deeply grateful for their support and trust.
As a student, from the first day of college I was a member of AIESEC Timișoara, later a Project Coordinator, then PR Coordinator (Public Relations), then Marketing Department Coordinator … many beautiful positions, as is appropriate for a multinational organization. Here I learned that in large organizations, with many hierarchies, people are actively involved in “politics.” An activity that I was never interested in, because I preferred simplicity and transparency.
I founded the Career Development Center in 2002 together with my husband and a few other wonderful professors (fain– as they say in Banat). They were modern professors: active, friendly, visionary. It was the first organization of its kind in Romania, inspired by the American models I had studied carefully during my Winter term, while I was supposed to prepare for my exams. It paid off. I have actively been involved in the development of the organization, of which I became the first President. I have collaborated with many young people over the years. I also helped train many young people.
The atmosphere that we have been developing in the CDC was one of exploration, new possibilities and personal achievement. Its members could put forward and organize new inspiring projects at any time, and always found in me and in the structure that I had created the support, knowledge and expertise they needed. Thus, in time, over 30,000 young people have enjoyed counseling, trainings, employment opportunities, as well as opportunities to start a new business or to practice their skills.
From 2009 to 2016 the focus of the Center was entrepreneurship. We launched the program “Entrepreneurs’ Factory” which had 14 editions, with over 500 graduates. Together with other entrepreneurs, we devoted our time and resources to the most complex and engaging business program for young people. They “acquired ” self-confidence, confidence in their ideas and a new way of looking at and living life, with integrity and harmony.
In 2003 I also made my small heretical step: I worked “in a bank”, a bank of high international prestige, responsible for corporate clients in Timisoara, to the delight of my family but also to fulfill my own aspiration, to acquire knowledge of the financial field. Working as an employee was fundamentally against my entrepreneurial nature, so I chose to leave the system faster than I had originally intended. I was never able to submit to the “schedule “, having a constant inner revolt towards rigid systems. I think that was also the unconscious reason why, as a child, I was a complete nightmare for my mother. In the morning I was permanently creating reasons to leave home late, so that I would be late for school. But somehow, I made up for it by being intelligent and intuitive, and, as some used to say I was „a bright girl”, so that, despite missing classes, being late or other mischiefs, I was always among the top of my class at school. At the college I was always among top students, who qualified for a scholarship.
In 2005 I founded the company “On Active SRL”, in which I am a Partner. It is a Consulting Firm in the fields of sourcing and expediting. Integrity, business excellence, delivery of promised results and bringing “delight” to the customer are the values and principles at the core of this business. www.onactive.ro
I have always been interested in my professional and personal development, which is why I enriched my academic training at the college with other various trainings and classes on multiple subjects, so many that it is a challenge for me now, to remember them all. Anyhow, I made sure that I am knowledgeable on all aspects of a business enterprise. By exercising many professional activities, I also acquired practical skills. Next I began to teach personal and professional development classes, sharing both my theoretical knowledge and my practical business experience. I have delivered trainings on topics such as: Project Management, Human Resource Management, PR (Public Relations), Sales, Personal Branding, Time Management, Personnel Selection and Recruitment, Career Planning and Personal Development, Business Plan.
As a hobby, I studied at the Arts College for two years, specializing in Environmental Design, satisfying my interest and pleasure in drawing, architecture and Feng Shui.
Since May 2012, I am an Advanced Certified ThetaHealing Instructor, and since 2014 a Master and Certificate of Science in ThetaHealing. I am very happy that I have discovered this technique and can offer it to the world. To me, teaching these classes feels like being a fish in the water, as if I had done this forever.
I invite you all to find out more about this technique reading the information on this website. It is a delight and a privilege for me, to see how participants reconnect to their intuitive capabilities, and to their complete and complex nature in all dimensions. Every one of them becomes aware of how their mind and life work, then proactively use their theoretical knowledge into creating a new future, freeing themselves. They transform their unsuccessful relationships and beliefs into some that allow them to fly to the highest, most elevated, and beautiful vision they could have during this human experience.
Studying the subconscious I inevitably ended up exploring it from several paradigms, so in 2018 I graduated a Master in Psychoanalysis.
It whetted my appetite for understanding the defense mechanisms of the mind, a subject that I deepen and continue to research insatiably.
George Vaillant’s work has proven to be a fantastic source of information and I feel motivated to continue his work for a lifetime. I would like and I think it would (and will) be a great contribution for humanity to become familiar with the unconscious defense mechanisms of the mind. Psychoanalysis also clarified the significance of some trainer experiences, bringing to the fore the notions of transfer and countertransference. This master brought many gifts in my life, such as the joy of being known and learned from a great Teacher, in the noblest sense of the term, a gentleman with presence, knowledge, and a “je ne sais quoi” through which he managed to inspire us and make us feel worthy as students.
Thank you, PhD Vasile Dem. Zamfirescu.

Trainer and Personal Development Coach
Being with people in a learning context, either as a member of a class, or as a trainer, gives me the greatest joy.
Over the years, the professional activities that have offered me the most satisfaction are those of being a trainer, a career counselor and a coach. I still love them most.
I think we all, like little souls, come to the Earth to learn. And when we are in an educational context, we are most connected to the natural balance of our soul. Outside of class, each of us learns during our entire life, but we do not allow ourselves much time to understand, contextualize, and integrate the experience we go through. That is why days are homogenous, history repeats itself, and it seems that we are caught in a perpetuum mobile.
I believe that if we stop for a few minutes to meditate on the day that has just passed, and to intentionally create our future, each day could become an adventure filled with wonder. That’s why I appreciate these classes so much. Because for most people, without realizing it, these classes are a good opportunity for self-assessment, self-knowledge, and planning of a new life, one we created and not we have just lived by repeating past habits.
The topics I have addressed and delivered in trainings are:
- Career Planning and Development
- Project Management
- Business planning
- Human resources management (of teams)
- Staff selection and recruitment
- PR (Public Relations)
- Personal branding
Traditional. Social. Spiritual.
As a social entrepreneur, in 2002 I created the first Career Development Center in Romania. Ten years, more than 40 projects, more than 30,000 beneficiaries, in Timisoara and Cluj-Napoca.
I loved all the projects because they were created by young people, with the desire to help other young people. Since 2009, together with my husband and other top entrepreneurs, I have supported and developed a “new species” of entrepreneurs, through the “Entrepreneurs’ Factory” program. To date, over 500 young people have been prepared to start their entrepreneurial life in a unique way, based on integrity and harmony.
We promote a way of being and acting in life and in business that starts from an expression of self, with the honor of the promised word. In this the business component is harmoniously integrated into all other aspects of a fulfilled live (family, health, hobbies, travel, personal development, etc.).
For the activity of a social entrepreneur, as well as for the contribution and leadership in the community, I have been recognized and appreciated by world-renowned organizations: International Youth Foundation and Global Knowledge Partnership.
I am also a partner of On Active, a logistics consulting company specialized in sourcing, expediting, and stock accuracy services. The business is based on the same principles of integrity and excellence and inspires us not only to serve our customers in the most professional and effective way, but more than that, to delight them.
Master and Certificat of Science ThetaHealing® Instructor

For me, but also for many, many, people all over the world, ThetaHealing is “the top of the game” in the education for an extraordinary life. And I don’t say this just because I am teaching these classes, but because I live the magic of this education myself. When I became a ThetaHealing Instructor and took my first class, I felt like I was born for this. It was as if the puzzle I didn’t understand until then, the mixture of experience and teachings I had receiving by that time, suddenly gained meaning and value. I enjoy teaching people how to work in Theta, because what I am actually teaching them is to go Home. Home to the most beautiful place in the Universe, their soul, their divine nature, where there is much peace, love, power, and infinite potential.
Through ThetaHealing people discover that they can heal, and heal themselves emotionally and physically, they can let the past be the past, freeing themselves of the luggage of their memories and former relationships that hold them in place. They can imagine every aspect of their future and live it accordingly.
ThetaHealing is an education for the modern human being, who no longer denies the spiritual side, but embraces it and enjoys it. Reconnecting with the Self and the Source of life offers multiple benefits: understanding the vast knowledge about Universes, the wisdom and sense of their Personal Existence within Creation.
ThetaHealing is easy to understand and to apply, and it brings immediate benefits. From a pragmatic point of view, people learn to discover and completely release from their inner lives some unconscious programs that negatively affect their behavior, feelings, and health (such as conditions caused by stress, depressions, lack of self-confidence, feelings of not being much loved or desired, resentments and regrets).
It is great to be captain of your own ship, to be able to steer it in any direction you want, and besides, to be able to influence the environment so that you reach the destination by sailing through clear and calm waters.
I believe, and this class has proved it to me in practice so far, that all people are “intuitive”; they have capabilities that go beyond traditional logic, and can learn this technique, regaining control over their subconscious thinking, so that it supports them in living a beautiful life!
