Who is Margie Braunstein?

A wise physician said to me, “I have been practising medicine for 30 years and I have prescribed many things, but in the long run I have learned that for most of what ails the human creature, the best medicine is LOVE.” “What if it doesn’t work?”, I asked. “Double the dose”, he replied.

I’ve been a counsellor for over 30 years. I’m a registered somatic psychotherapist and Clinical Member of the Psychotherapy & Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA).

I also work as a facilitator and teacher with people to enhance their conscious awareness and, by extension, improve the quality of their day to day lives. More recently, having worked in the field of transformational learning for decades, extending into  public speaking for events and conferences.

I’m both curious and passionate about how amazing and unique we all are as human beings.  I try to offer people a healing experience which ultimately serves them to transform their perceptions about life and realise greater peace and joy. As a dedicated meditation teacher, speaker and practitioner I support people to develop self awareness as a foundation skill for making life enhancing choices, rather than the more common knee jerk reactions that consistently compel most of us.

As a facilitator of personal growth programs I’ve developed extensive experience guiding people to explore the beliefs and habits that get in the way of them experiencing deep levels of peace. I’ve seen how when people practice relaxation and meditation, the nervous system is given a chance to relax. A relaxed nervous system leads to a sense of relaxed aliveness, where people may rediscover the simple beauty of their true nature and experience intensely peaceful states of being.

I’m committed to my own personal purpose in life which is to teach love and to know love from an inner foundation of compassion, generosity and gratitude and through the practices of awareness, acceptance and heart based action. Heartnicity is my platform to inspire, to educate and inspire men (and especially women like myself) because I believe we’re seeking to live on our own paths of heart.


“Throughout my life and to this day, I have been committed to my own personal development and growth. I feel deeply grateful for the wisdom and support and love I’ve received along my path of heart for both my deepest sufferings and my greatest joys…”

Sometimes finding a non-judgemental teacher can give you the support you need to safely explore your life and critically reflect on what’s working and what’s not working from a kind and compassionate perspective.

I believe the inside each one of us is an essential nature and that when you look deeply you will find the beauty that always lives within. It’s the little pilot light within you that I believe is never extinguished. It keeps you seeking and lights the way. It may even have led you here to Heartnicity!

My philosophy is to just accept whatever it is someone brings to me about their life. No blame, no regret, no judgement, no wishing it were different , just acceptance. Acceptance helps you to question and seek what’s true in your heart.

Let me lead you as you explore the beliefs and habits that get in the way of you ‘filling up your own energy bucket’ and creating deeper levels of inner peace.

My books, workshops and teachings offer you the opportunity to have a new experience in relationship with yourself so that you can discover previously undeveloped aspects and experience the world in new,  more meaningful and joyful ways.
