Shares his awakening story of love.

Brett Shuttleworth is the founder of Smiling Soul Creations, which includes transformational retreats, a coaching academy and transformational and mentorship programmes. 

In a world craving authenticity and genuine transformation, the story of Brett Shuttleworth stands out as a beacon of inspiration. From humble beginnings as a farm boy in KwaZulu-Natal to achieving success as a professional sportsman, supermodel, Hollywood actor, and entrepreneur, Brett’s journey is a testament to the power of following one’s passion and embracing the call of the soul. Today, he is known as a spiritual teacher, transformational coach, motivator and the visionary founder behind the life-changing Smiling Soul Creations and upcoming exciting development, the Smiling Soul Island Estate located on the mystical Island of Gods, Bali.

Brett is a master of the FREE, who fervently embarks on the journey of life with rare openness, surrender and loving awareness. His Intention is to create a ripple effect of love across the world, by making souls smile through self-realisation. “The spiritual journey is individual and highly personal. It isn’t true that everyone should follow one path. It can’t be organised or regulated. Listen to your own truth. In your innermost heart you know that you are free; that is why it is your nature to yearn for freedom.”

Keeping an open heart: Brett is someone who continues to move away from his role to his soul: One who fervently embarks on the journey of life with rare openness, surrender and loving awareness.

“Enlightenment is nothing more than the complete absence of resistance to what ‘Is’. End of story. Rewire your brain for higher consciousness by paying attention to love, compassion and joy. Realise deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.”

The path to awakening: Brett’s path to spiritual awakening was far from conventional. After a successful career in various industries, he realised that material success alone was not enough to bring true happiness and fulfilment. Deep introspection and a desire to make a meaningful impact on the lives of others led him on a profound journey of self-discovery and transformation. It was during this time that he embraced his role as a spiritual teacher and began sharing his wisdom with the world.

Smiling Soul Retreats and the ripple of love: At the heart of Brett’s mission is the creation of a ripple effect of love that inspires others to live into their greatness. Through his Smiling Soul Retreats held in India, Bali and South Africa and through other transformational programmes, he has touched the lives of over 27 000 individuals from across the globe. The retreats and programmes offer a safe and supportive space for personal growth, inner healing and spiritual awakening; the Smiling Soul Coaching Academy offers the opportunity to become a force for transformation, based on Brett’s teachings. Participants are guided through profound insights, transformative practices and soulful connections that leave a lasting impact on their lives and those of others.

Grace on the horizon: The Smiling Soul Island Estate takes Brett’s vision further. Brett is creating a haven for conscious living on the enchanting island of Bali. The Smiling Soul Island Estate is a unique opportunity for individuals and families to invest in properties that align with their spiritual values while offering a lucrative return on investment. This visionary project will not only nurture financial prosperity but also foster a conscious and fulfilling lifestyle, allowing residents to immerse themselves in the beauty and serenity of Bali’s spiritual energy.

The teacher and guide: Brett draws hearts out of their dark little corners into the open and lets us feel what could be possible in life. And he’s not that guy you see as a teacher. That’s just one little manifestation. A nice one.  Brett’s teachings are rooted on in the power of love, compassion and joy. Through his retreats, events and online courses, he combines spirituality, humour and practical life advice to break through the mind’s barriers and help people find love and meaning in their lives.

The journey of oneness and love: Brett’s journey is a testament to the transformative power of love and the profound impact it can have on every aspect of our lives. He reminds us that we are enough and that the search for happiness lies within us. Through his inspirational quotes and teachings, he invites us to open our hearts, let go of ego-driven desires and connect with the love that resides within us all.

He is here. He is the love that lives within us. And everybody knows exactly what it is. Everybody’s looking for the same thing. Some people call it this. Some people call it that. It doesn’t matter what you call it. It’s the feeling you’re looking for of ‘ok-ness’ about life and about ourselves.

“Our whole spiritual transformation brings us to the point where we realise that, in our own being, we are enough. – We’re fascinated by the words, but where we meet is in the silence behind them.”

This silence comes only out of deep internal reflection.”

Brett Shuttleworth’s remarkable journey from farm-boy to spiritual teacher is an awakening story of love, transformation and the pursuit of a higher consciousness. His unwavering commitment to changing lives and creating a ripple of love inspires individuals from all walks of life to embrace their greatness and live authentically. By immersing ourselves in Brett’s teachings, we are guided to rediscover our true essence, find inner peace and make a profound impact on the world around us.
