Dr. Margaret Trey - Sibubooks, USA
Sarawak-born Australian Dr. Margaret Trey lives in scenic Mid-Hudson region north of New York City. Inspired by her late author granduncle, she majored in English at The University of Toronto and later completed counselor training, including the Doctor of counseling degree, at the University of South Australia. Dr. Trey’s upbringing profoundly impacted her affinity for traditional culture. Her maternal grandfather was a 19th century-born Taoist cultivator, healer, and physician. From her mother, who passed away at 103 years old, Dr. Trey learned the spirit and wisdom of traditional Chinese culture. An inherent respect for antiquated wisdom inspired Dr. Trey to train in oriental medicine, Zen shiatsu, Indian and Japanese yoga, the yin-yang of foods, and Vipassana meditation—before she began practicing Falun Gong in 1997. Her family lineage and belief in mind-body-spiritual approach have enthused Dr. Trey’s integrated approach towards helping others. She creates ripples—of hope and positivity—through speaking at various events and international conferences in Australia, Canada, Singapore, Thailand, and the United States, as well as through her writings.
Counselor, researcher, speaker, and author of two books on the effects of Falun Gong, Dr. Trey is currently working on her third project, an edited book on the Link between Falun Gong and Health–the Belief Factor.
