The Transformation

The author and mystic Caroline Myss once said that ‘it is impossible to heal from an illness and come out the other side the same person.’ 

A quote that no doubt will make complete sense to anyone who has been diagnosed with a serious disease or condition. Illness perhaps like nothing else on earth has a way of forcing us to make changes and to begin to take notice of the inner voice that has stopped whispering and starting shouting.

In this episode of Wyse Women,  Frauke Behrens from Fuerteventura talks about her extraordinary transformation from a stressed-out overworked manager of top hotels and spas to a free-spirited and joyous Kundalini yoga teacher after being diagnosed with a life threatening tumor of the lung.
