Margaret Ponga was born in Hastings, New Zealand and was introduced to the teachings of Joel Goldsmith as a young child where she had grounding in spiritual principles that led to her conscious commitment to a spiritual way of living. A significant change in her life in the early 1980’s was the catalyst for a period of more intense study and dedicated practice of the principles, which continues today.
She gives the clear message that spiritual principles can, and should be applied to every aspect of life. As a music teacher, accounting clerk, and mother, she has had ample opportunity to test her understanding and to witness the fruitage. Growing into a teaching role and accepting invitations since 1990 to give classes based on Joel Goldsmith’s teachings, has been a part of the fruitage.
