Uploaded on Jun 6, 2011… TBI Advoctae. Inspirational Speaker and Survivor Deborah Berry is an Expert in Facing Fear, trauma and grief. She has lived through the drowning death of her son 2 year old son who died after being on life support for 20 days. 11 years later Deborah sustained brain injury and disabilities personally. Today she is a Inspirational Keynote speaker presenting to you “Science, Society and the Soul”

A MESSAGE FROM DEBORAH: Science, Society and the Soul: Your are not alone! TBI, brain injury, illness and dysfunctions of the brain effect every aspect of your life. They involve legal and medical confusion, personal and social relationships, inner and spiritual conflicts. It can be a lonely and sad journey that has a life of it’s own. My passion and purpose in life is to bring about “awareness” and insight supporting you in facing the fears and challenges that arise in your everyday life. Challenges such as the grief, loneliness and isolation; these are just a few of the hardships you are faced with, including the unpredictable circumstances that steal your happiness and inner peace – I take you one step at time through a process of understanding, a journey that has helped me to have a productive and happy life filled with purpose and value. Brain injury is a silent invader; it is like an unwanted visitor and a thief in the night that comes when you least expect it. Let me help you go from being a victim to a survivor and eventually a person who thrives with a purpose to help others. We have been given a gift… your life is a gift… let me show you how to open it up.

Deborah Berry is the Founder and host for Survivor pay it forward on HigherVision Radio;


About craig lock

ABOUT c the Author Craig has a 'passion' for writing books that tell stories about people doing positive things in this often so hard, sometimes unkind world, occasionally cruel, yet always amazing world - true stories that leave the reader feeling uplifted, empowered and hopefully even inspired. and from and Craig Lock loves to encourage and empower people to be the best they can possibly be, and to create what they want in life. Craig has learnt plenty from the "school of life" (still "battered and bruised") and also from a few "hard knocks on the head". He is an extensive world traveller (on a "shoestring budget") and failed professional emigrater who has spent most of his lifes savings on airfares. He is still sliding down the razor blade of life on the beautiful undiscovered island that is New Zealand, somewhere near the bottom (rude!) of the world near Antarctica. There he talks to the 60 million sheep! Craig has been involved in the corporate world (life assurance) for over twenty years in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. However, through a strange set of circumstances and finding himself in a small town near the bottom of the world ...and with nothing else to do, he started writing. That was five years ago. Five published books later and having written another twenty manuscripts (on widely differing subjects - well what else is there to do here?)... this is where Craig is in the "journey/adventure" that is life. Craig has taught at the local Polytechnic, as well as running a successful creative writing course (not teaching sheep!). He was the author of (as far as we know) the first creative writing course on the internet Craig has many varied interests and passions. He is particularly interested in the field of psychology – studying the human mind and what makes different people "tick-tock grandfather clock". He is fascinated by the "overlap between psychology and the dimension of spirituality". One of his missions in life is helping people make the most of their hidden potential and so finding their niche in life... so that they are happy. Craig’s various books probably tell more about his rather "eventful" life best (no one could believe it!). He writes books with serious messages and themes, then as a contrast "rather crazy, wacky stuff"…to keep him sane here. As an ‘anonymouse’ person wrote: "All of us are born mad; some of us remain so." Well nothing else much happens in quiet provincial New Zealand, other than headlines like "Golf Ball Thrown at Policeman" (it missed, btw!) and "Beach Toilet Closed for Season." True! The various books* that Craig “felt inspired to write” are available at ebooks (digital books) Paperbacks (see and"craig+lock"&sitesearch_type=STORE and All proceeds go to needy and underprivileged children – MINE! “When the writer is no more , the value of your purchase will soar! “ “Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.” PPS Don’t worry about the world ending today… as it’s already tomorrow in scenic and tranquil ‘little’ New Zealand

      he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,
      or Beethoven composed music, or

      that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say,

    When I initially commented We clicked the particular -Notify me when new surveys are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is actually added I get four email messages with the same remark. Is there in whatever way you can eliminate me coming from that program? Thanks!
