ST: Please tell us more about yourself.

Sonia Mackwani: I am Sonia Mackwani. Although my journey began in my childhood itself, my story seemed like a continuation of many lives, I lived in the past. With multiple, meta-physical experiences such as 'out-of-body' 'near -death' experiences, my life has always been filled with mystical encounters and ancient indigenous wisdom. I've always felt that I am here to be the energy of love, and thus, way back when I was 20, I started Touching Lives, an organization that works with slum children and which has education, empowerment, enlightenment and edu-tainment initiatives for a child to become an independent learner. My life revolves between self-work, seva & sadhana. I've always felt that it is completely my need to serve than saying we serve the needy.

Apart from being the Founder -Director at Touching Lives, which is now in its 14th year,  I am also an Author, having written for children, non-fiction and now, my first fiction debut to be launched called in 2017 - 'The Rocket Science Called Love.' I am also a Screenwriter and have done my Masters in Clinical Psychology and Hypnotherapy. I am a Psychic & Shamanic Healer and have channeled several meditation and healing modality such as Master Reconnection & work deeply with the Birth into Being Method and therapeutic birth work. I do corporate training and consciousness workshops.

I am at the brink of beginning into Film-making as a director and writer, and perhaps some day will act to, and initiating my work in composing songs and singing, the royalties, funds of which, intends to go for the education of children.

ST: Who is your biggest influence in life?

Sonia Mackwani: My biggest influence is the life itself and its conspiracy, leading me to believe how the entire world is connected with each other. That lessons in the universe are endless and that I am perhaps a part of each one of them.

ST: What challenges do you face in your day to day professional life, if any?

Sonia Mackwani: Challenges! When you see your dreams getting fulfilled each day in your imagination and yet in reality, it is about that step-by-step process you have to take, it is about the complex interplay of time, space, energy, consciousness, communication, patience, uncertainties, emotions etc. It is about reminding yourself to breathe your dream with faith each day. It is when you see humans being held back by their conditioning, by other people, relationships and you know that how each human can live their lives in better ways than they do now and yet you have to hold yourself back because it is their journey and they've got lessons to learn. I feel the pain of humanity and I feel powerless sometimes. Such moments are challenging.

ST: Where do you want to see yourself in next 5 years down the line?

Sonia Mackwani: In next 5 years, I truly see myself as a Film-maker, writing books and venturing into theater & performances, acting, once again to bring in the resources to grow and expand Touching Lives and provide excellent support to the children globally too. I wish to support in fields of education, mental health, cinema, writing games, spiritual evolution of humanity globally and continuing walking on the path of seva. And of course, keep the doors of uncertainty and infinite possibilities open.

ST: What is your message to the readers on ‘International Women’s Day’?

Sonia Mackwani: Well, the message would be to begin their journeys on the path of 'self-work' and that it is the great work we have with ourselves first on this planet that shall lead to contribution in the universe. Keep up the love and value the freedom of oneself and each other. And yes, the only thing one can get back to, whenever possible in life, at whatever age is our dreams. So, those who haven't begun - start, those who have left ages ago, let go of the age and come continue your journey with it and those, who are still looking for their dreams, watch the stars every night and sun-rise every morning -travel - watch the world differently. You shall find your place. I am sure.
