"Their death contains a gift, which has to be opened to be truly received" - Hannah got this message from Spirit after her own healing and this week's guest, Karen Chaston from The Chaston Centre, on the Gold Coast, in Australia, speaks about 'The Gift of Loss'.

Karen is now a passionate advocate of unwrapping the gifts contained in loss and asks, "Will you let go of your suffering?". Christian and Dan definitely brought Karen and Hannah together!
