12. Prison Work In South Africa ‘Found Her'
On the day of her podcast interview, Karina Andersen worked with inmates in a South African prison. She takes her empowerment coaching, authentic leadership training and Circles of Change work wherever she perceives she is led to go. “Love is my Essence. Guidance my Passion!”
How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
“For me to relate to people in a prison environment, it doesn’t mean that I am coming in and telling people what to do. Because my journey had prepared and molded me, this prison work found me in 2007.” She shares her journey individually and in small groups.
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
For me it’s all about taking ownership, each day, of my own story. Whatever I see, I create. Whatever I meet is an opportunity for me to be more of me, to realize what is my potential? What is my purpose? But it all starts with taking ownership.
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
We begin to understand we have imprisoned ourselves in our minds, that we have a choice, it doesn’t have to be the way it is. The roads and pathways that open to us. The picture is always so much bigger. She calls her work an abundant exchange, “because I have benefitted equally.”
