ACL 020: Marinus Koning

Marinus Koning is a retired brain surgeon who is now doing some amazing healing work with children in Ethiopia through the non-profit he founded called “Reach Another Foundation.”

In this episode of A Congruent Life, Marinus shares some fascinating stories, including:

  • the impact that his mother’s sacrifice for hungry children during World War II has had on the course of his life,
  • the deeply learned lesson that “if it’s not helping others, it’s not worth doing,”
  • his unique reflections on authenticity that come from having a twin brother,
  • how he was “accidentally” introduced to mysticism as a teen,
  • his experience that the art of living is learning how to recognize and appreciate key moments, and
  • what he learned from drawing blood from a dying man, Ubuntu, inking circles on newspaper, and Winnie the Pooh.
