She started with one student – today, she has taught over 500 students to dance!

Her words, which inspired me the most were: “When I started, two students registered. Only one showed up but I decided to work with this one student, and together we created a masterpiece choreography.”

New Release: Soulful Encounters, 2nd Edition of Mags Magazine

“I am delighted to register my Congratulations to Magdalene Cooman on the 2nd Edition of Mags E-Magazine titled ‘Soulful Encounters.’

This edition of Mags Magazine presents bold, deep, engaging content which covers the inner personal dimensions of life with which most if not every person can identify. The motivational content is written in a manner that is candid and reader friendly, engaging the reader in a soul searching journey.
The sketches of life stories echo the human experiences that serve to give significance to life. Additionally, they redirect the course of life, create resolve for purposeful living and very importantly, they provide introspective reflection for many struggling with similar encounters and feelings in finding their way. The producer’s own life story of twists and turns, challenges, soul searching and where she is today because of her quiet strength, deep spiritual exploration and self-determination, is a living testimony of what diligence and a purpose driven life can achieve.
Soulful Encounters is a delightful and thought-provoking reading from which everyone can benefit. I recommend Mags Magazine as a good investment not for the shelf but as a motivator for achieving self- fulfilment.”

Celebration Party – Inspiration 2015

Inspiration 2015! was fun, energizing, inspiring and simply soul-fulfilling! As promised, Wilson and I hosted our guests with music, travel experiences, writing and dancing! We have so much to be grateful for and to celebrate with a group of enthusiastic people was rejuvenating for our souls. As always, the universe conspires the moment we set the intention and every single detail fell in place – from getting the venue, securing Nile Groove, my favourite band in Ottawa, to play live music; to have two amazing inspirational speakers – Lisa Anna Palmer and Hani Rached. We honoured our earth angel Nubia Cermano who also blessed us with singing and music and brought her friends along to share in the celebration. We shared our traveling experience to Kenya… now we have a group of excited people who want to go on an adventure!

JAMBO! Happy Independence Day to Kenya!

Everyone welcomed us, everywhere we went. The beautiful smiles, warmth and welcoming presence left an imprint on my mind and spirit.

At several places we visited, we were welcomed with the Maasai shuka, a traditional wear associated with the Masai people of East Africa. These shukas are usually worn by the Masai morans which differenciates them from other communities. We were greeted at the entrance where the Maasai shuka was wrapped around us.

Transformation through life’s most difficult challenges – how Marie Claudine, a survivor of the Rwandan genocide is using her tragic experience to help orphans in Rwanda

Yesterday, I had the pleasure the privilege to meet with multiple award winner, Marie Claudine Mukamambana who lost her parents, sister, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, loved ones, friends, classmates, and fellow countrymen during the Rwandan Genocide, when she was only a teenager.
