“Mary works a magic that must be experienced firsthand. She has a knack for presenting sophisticated concepts clearly and then taking that foundation to a new, cosmic level of understanding and synthesis. From studying Reiki under her, to private sessions, to participating in many meaningful and memorable workshops, I just keep coming back! I am grateful for the opportunity I’ve had under her wing to expand my inner horizons, while being of service to the greater good.”

Laurie Mullen
Founder, Turn Around Teen, Madison, WI

“Whether it’s training, a personal session or a workshop, her enthusiasm, love and tremendous knowledge is apparent. Everything I’ve attended became a wonderful and exciting experience for me.”

Colleen Shannon
Reiki Master & EMF Balancing Technique® Practitioner, Elmhurst, IL

“Mary is amazing. I had such a wonderful experience in her classes. Mary radiates love and is passionate about her work, and that enthusiasm transfers in her teachings and to her students. There are not enough words to describe how much I enjoyed Mary as an instructor and as a person, or how much I was able to gain from her and the classes. I recommend Mary to anyone — no matter what level you are on in your spiritual journey.”

Natascha Malkemes
Reiki Master, Milwaukee, WI

“I highly recommend Mary for her meditation classes, one-on-one sessions, or any of the many different series she offers. Mary’s gifts and skill have provided me with new insights into who I am and my place and role in this world, and I now feel confident and filled with anticipation about what’s next.”

Michael Dix
Owner, Michael's Frozen Custard

“Awesome classes. Fantastic sessions. Everything that Mary has taught me guided me in making positive changes in my life. She is an incredible teacher who is fun and extremely knowledgeable. I have successfully used her CDs for meditation, stress reduction and healing myself, family and friends. Mary’s voice, intuitive feeling and timing make her CDs some of the best on the market.”

Jane M.
4th Grade Teacher

“I highly recommend Staying in the Flow monthly meditation group to anyone wishing to access their inner wisdom, experience greater states of awareness, and feel absolutely fabulous. Mary’s soothing and amazing voice and ability to connect with expanded states of consciousness is unparalleled in my book. She has the ability take me to places inside myself that I didn’t know existed and simply cannot reach on my own. I love coming here and my only wish is that it happened more than once a month!”

Sarah B.

“Mary is a loving and attuned teacher who creates a clear space for learning, growing, and connecting. She is also highly skilled and knowledgeable and has a wealth of experience, all of which I was enriched by as her student. Those of us who shared the classes formed a deep bond, we were using Reiki in ways far more advanced than any of us had expected or even hoped for, and we were left with a sense of both great achievement and greater potential waiting for us to go forth and fulfill.”

Liz Zélandais
Madison, WI

“I came to the Practitioner of Energetic Arts training when I realized that I was here to heal myself, but just how deep and profound the healing would be, I did not know.
Quite literally my whole life has shifted. I recovered memories from my past, my perspective of my story has shifted, I have released what no longer serves me, my business has grown, and my closest relationships have evolved. Most important, I have recognized that I am the woman I’ve always wanted to be: centered, connected, strong, intuitive, radiant and beautiful. Mary has been such gift to me. Her facilitation has been flawless. The space she holds allowed each of us to step deeper into our centers, creating a sacred bond of support that is safe, nurturing and whole. Mary is a magnificent gift and I honor her.”

Bree Schenkel
Owner, Deep Pilates

“Mary is a leading edge practitioner and a great teacher who fosters a sense of comfort, security and approachability in her classes. She takes the time to make sure that I “get” the material presented, and makes herself available to answer questions that come up, whether directly or indirectly related to the class material. I leave class feeling comfortable with what I learned, and excited to use in my own practice. I highly recommend Mary’s classes.”

Guided Meditation and Spiritual Development

Meditation is the most important personal practice that you can cultivate because it is the quintessential tool to release resistant thought, align your energy, and connect to your higher consciousness.

I’ve recorded nine guided meditation CDs and programs, and countless customized meditation practices for individuals who want to shift their focus away from what they don’t want and on to what they do.

All of my work emerges from the gifts of this practice.

The Transformation Program

This program is for those who want to commit to a structure of healing, self-discovery, and evolution, at a pace that supports maximum benefit. We’ll create the program for you based on your unique situation and goals. These sessions are a combination of transpersonal healing and counseling, hypnotherapy, energy therapy and meditative practices.

We schedule 12 sessions over the course of 3-6 months. After each session, you receive a daily meditation practice and homework to keep you moving forward.

A sample program might look like this:

Session 1 —  Identify and transform the places where you get small, numb out, lose yourself, or recede into the background; take back your power.

Session 2 — Energy Therapy: Listen to what your body wants you to be aware of; release patterns of tension, resistance or withholding.

Session 3 —  Address and release any ancestral or familial patterns that are unconsciously driving you.

Session 4 —  Evolve your inner saboteur, critic or judge, the parts of you that beat you up, keep you in patterns of shame, or prevent your evolution.

Session 5 — Energy Therapy: Move into states of expanded, relaxed reception and open to what your Inner Being would like to communicate to you.

Session 6 — Bring to light and heal those parts of yourself that you experience as unloved or unlovable.

Session 7 —  Identify and release core limiting operating systems, such as I don’t fit in, I’m not worthy, I’m not enough.

Session 8 — Past-life regression. Discover and heal any unfinished business originating from another perspective of your experience.

Session 9 — Energy Therapy: Receive healing light and energy, and flow into the deepest and most refined states of inner awareness and relaxation, allowing your Inner Being and Inner Resources to tend to you completely.

Session 10 — Connect more fully with your passion and purpose in this lifetime; identify the path to making it a reality.

Session 11 —  Address any relationships that need healing; attract empowering new companions into your life.

Session 12 —  Connect with a departed Loved One who has a message of support and encouragement for you.

6-month Program:  $300/month     3-month Program:  $600/month
