I am Marwa El Abd, from Egypt. I live in Egypt. I’m married & I have 2 kids. I studied in 3 languages in school. So my first language is Arabic, my second language is French & my third language is English. I graduated from the faculty of Economics & Political Sciences, in the French department coordinated with the French embassy & provided by professors from France. I then started my Master’s degree in Business Administration in Sorbonne & Dauphine universities in France. I started my professional career in the Human Resources department in BMW Company in Egypt. I had the opportunity to rotate between different HR functions, to lead many HR strategic projects & to promote to different roles in the company. I stayed there for 7 years & my last position was an Organization Development Supervisor. I moved after to the leading dairy company in Egypt “Juhayna” as a Human Resources Section Head. I stayed there for 3 years leading a lot of challenging & pioneering projects in this company. My last corporate position was HR Manger in one of the big dairy companies in Egypt.
I left the corporate life after giving birth to my second child in a quest to find new meanings for life. I needed to take a break from running after something, to run toward myself. A lot of questions I could not have answer for. A lot of impulses I don’t know why I am doing. A lot of relations needed more connections & bonding, my need to care for my children, not just to provide them with all their materialistic needs, but more of bonding, of understanding, of growing together. This need that appeared in the form of frustration from what I was doing & a hunger for learning, that leaded me to study different humanistic sciences. It started with Parenting Courses, followed by Life Coaching Courses, spiritual courses, then enneagram, integral enneagram, inner child, shadow work, transpersonal, spiral dynamics, transpersonal coaching, teaching…etc. I am in now in the process of enrollment in Master’s degree in Transpersonal Psychology.
I had the honor to assist different teachers in the programs they provide. And in the last year conference I had the honor to present my model “Integral Transcendence” that I am currently teaching. My proposal for this year as a presenter to introduce Part 2 of this model: “Integral Transcendence – Nurturing Life” as an Academic Presentation.
