202. Shot at, shipwrecked & widowed: making suffering optional - with Sophie McLean
I’ve sooo been looking forward to chatting with Sophie MacLean. When you go to Sophie’s website immediately you are confronted (in a peaceful way) by a statement, ‘suffering is optional’. She gets your attention. She’s very very clear - I love that conviction and clarity - that her mission is to contribute to the creation of a new culture for humankind… self awareness, consciousness.
An absolutely fascinating and intriguing life…. Born in Algeria, educated in Morocco and France, with a professional career in the USA and UK, Sophie has led an eventful life. She has been a helicopter pilot, a teacher, a designer, a relief worker, a war refugee, a CEO, and served as a United Nations representative on The Commission on the Status of Women’s Hunger Project.
And yes, she has been shot at, shipwrecked, and widowed.
She has lived on a farm, a boat, a penthouse, and in an ashram.
Now, as a wisdom teacher, Sophie has spent decades leading transformational seminars around the universal existential questions of “Who and what am I?” and “What is my life about?”
You are going to LOVE this chat.
