Episode #5: How a car accident helped Kate Cliff find her calling
Kate Cliff took an interest in a career in the social justice system after having two family members killed in a car accident caused by a drunk driver who was let off on a lenient sentence when she was just 14. She dedicated herself to her law studies, had her future in the sector mapped out, and was then herself hit by a car while crossing the road.
In this episode of The Wellness Daily Show, Kate revisits her extensive time recovering from the resulting injuries, and how being told that “the old Kate doesn’t exist anymore” and that she would need to give up on her hopes and dreams instead triggered a drive for her to live her best life.
Kate discusses the role that meditation played in her recovery, the turning point that made her realise that meditation was instead how she would help others, and why she believes that it is the path to becoming a “multi-dimensional” human.
