Pauline Nguyen - Red Lantern and Spirituality

We are delighted to announce we will be hosting Pauline Nguyen at a forthcoming In The Spirit of Things Conversation.

Pauline Nguyen’s story is that of survival first. Escaping war-torn Vietnam as a toddler, Pauline eventually made it to Australian shores after a year in a Thai refugee camp. Having jumped from the frying pan, Pauline was thrust into the fire – going on to suffer tremendous physical and emotional abuse until she was a young woman.

It’s this staggering adversity Pauline now refers to as her training – rising from the ashes of her trauma to become one of Australia’s most sought after development coaches, a leading entrepreneur, an award-winning author and an international key note speaker.

Described by Huffington Post as, “The most grounded spiritual entrepreneur on the planet”, recognised as an original ‘Rare Bird’ – Australia’s top 50 Influential Female Entrepreneurs and included in Blackwell and Hobday’s global recognition of ‘200 Women Who Will Change the Way You See the World’, Pauline is nothing short of extraordinary. Unable to be pigeon holed, the mother of two speaks and teaches from direct experience with a unique process to self-mastery, which has helped heal and uplevel thousands of her followers. Known for combining science with spirituality, the award-winning author also co-founded the world’s most awarded Vietnamese restaurant, Red Lantern.

Discovering our spiritual purpose is a key aspect to every person’s journey. We get a taste of our spiritual purpose when we tap into the desires of our heart. What satisfies us and what makes us frustrated? We each have a specific wiring with a palette of gifts and strengths that are as unique to each individual as a thumbprint. Developing our gifts and talents, identifying our dreams and desires and learning how to use them, all help to live a life of purpose. Purpose enables us to make a difference to our world. Life does not have to be about just living for self. Our life can be used to make a difference for others. It is important to begin by noting that while the term 'spirit' and 'spirituality' are closely connected, they are not synonymous. The human spirit is the essential life-force that undergrids, motivates and vitalises human existence. Join us and listen to inspiring stories of hope, humanity, adversity to resilience. A new In The Spirit Conversation is released each week. Explore and discover what spirituality means you. If you would like to receive the 'In The Spirit Of Things' Conversations join the mailing list at the bottom of the page here and we'll send you a new edition each week.
