Quotes:

  • “If you trust how things are unfolding, it will happen.”
  • “When frustration comes up in your life, there is a deeper reason behind it. If you have somebody bump into you and you end up falling down on the pavement and knocking your knee, there's a lesson for you in there somewhere.”
  • “Getting what you want in life is not a journey of using a cookie-cutter that punches you through the other side where you can make it what you want. It is a lot of work because anything worth having is a lot of work.”

Guest Bio: Megan Macdonald

Megan Macdonald guides people to find their own answers, helping them to get unstuck and thrive. She is an educator and facilitator, combining training in holistic health and a Ph.D. in the study of belief. It was curiosity about her own chronic pain as a teenager that led to investigating over 20 healing modalities. As her health improved, she started to not only feel the benefits in her own body and mind but see the changes that deep health brought to every aspect of life. Along with yoga and reiki, the most profound changes have come through two practices – the self-healing Dalian Method (profound work on the unconscious, beliefs, the shadow, and ego) and Urine Therapy. She offers multi-week programs to help people improve sleep, and digestion, develop healthy habits, promote well-being, and raise consciousness.

Her background in theatre, and organizing and delivering national high-profile events and ceremonies for the Government of Canada helped develop her knowledge of social rituals. She did her graduate work at Queen Mary, University of London, UK, and has published, and taught widely on theatre and ritual. She is currently based in Prince Edward Island, Canada.
