Meet Margaret

I have lived over seven decades, and what a fruitful, eventful, wonderful time it has been!

A few years ago I realised I had been ‘dying’ my way through life – meaning that life has brought me many opportunities to release, hand over, bring to an end, and surrender.

What I am also aware of is that I feel lighter, more fluid, and more joyful with each passing year. There has to be a link!

Many years ago, long before my realisation, I was searching my inner landscape for a way to summarise who I am and what I offer.  This is what came – joyful living, and fearless dying – or as a friend once said, I could flip it around and it would still sum me up.

For me it is a deep privilege to walk alongside people who are committed to their own evolution, whatever that looks like. It will be an honour to journey with you if you choose to invite me.
