Margaret is joined by coach, counsellor and facilitator, Masana De Souza, to discuss her fascinating path through life and how she discovered her own sense of spirituality.
Masana and Margaret also talk about the ways in which spirituality, yoga and meditation practices, and deep understanding can help us to overcome the scars of trauma.
- The finest and most effective way of discovering our own path in life and spirituality, is to be given the freedom to do so on our own. We are all unique beings and therefore our paths will be unique ones.
- Each of us are blessed with a special gift in this world – that remarkable, once-in-a-lifetime thing that makes us special. Finding that one thing and sharing it with the world is our most special gift.

‘Each moment is precious, is new’
‘That trauma lodges deep within the subconscious mind of who we truly are’

From a breakdown to a breakthrough, these words from Viktor Frankl’s book, Man’s Search For Meaning, changed her life forever: “The existence of life is to suffer; to survive is to find meaning in suffering.” Once she became aware of this, her life changed, and choose to live each day like it’s her last…
