Rhythms of Change – The Book
Rhythms of Change, authored by Mary Saunders, takes you on a journey that reveals the ancient wisdom of the East and applies it to the challenges of daily life.

This webinar course reveals your potential to live more fully as a human being when you listen to the wisdom of the body and heart, as well as the mind. The course takes you on a deeper dive into the rhythms of change and gives you step-by-step guidance to reclaim these elemental energies for yourself.

This retreat is designed for you to directly experience what is going on inside, feel the power of being to balance all the doing, and reclaim what has been silenced or neglected within ourselves. Practicing this wisdom in a circle with other women allows something to happen that is not possible when we work alone.

Study Guide
We are now offering a Rhythms of Change Study Guide to support you in making the information in the book and webinars your own. It is designed to help clarify your understanding and support you moving toward the transformation you envision for yourself. And it is our gift to you.

My experience as a practitioner of meditation and Oriental medicine has shown me that to live our wholeness we must come into relationship with all aspects of ourselves. Yet we live within a system that encourages us to be dissatisfied with ourselves and with life. We then keep trying to improve ourselves by working harder and seeking to be more, better, or different in some way, without any lasting satisfaction.

This focus on outer work, productivity, efficiency, and striving to reach our goals is based on a masculine view of the world. There is value in this approach, and a time and place that are appropriate for its use, but in excess it leaves no room for the feminine principle that values receptivity, intuition, relationship, and the joy of simply being alive. Masculine and feminine principles are not gender based, but aspects of the psyche within both women and men.

Many of us now sense the need to shift our awareness to also include and embody the feminine principle in our daily lives.

This feminine way of being inwardly aligned and receptive to grace is unfamiliar territory for many of us and may be challenging at first to navigate alone. The focus of my work is twofold: Guiding women to embodying feminine consciousness, each in her own way, and mentoring healthcare practitioners on the importance of both self-awareness and patient education for clinical success.

Looking back at when I started doing coaching work with Mary, I was alone in the depths of fear, grief, and rage. With her kindness and compassionate nature she helped me access the inner strength that was needed to grow beyond the loss I had suffered. Her coaching has helped me to redefine my values and is always a gentle reminder to live according to those values. Her knowledge and experience is what make her truly unique and incredibly helpful.

Mary Saunders’ coaching helped me understand my habitual patterns and transform them into new daily practices that are more aligned with what I want. In a few short months of working with Mary, I began to witness significant changes in my productivity and quality of life. Play, joy and lightness are once again companions. Most important of all, she helped me align myself with the true purpose of this one precious life I’ve been given. I am profoundly grateful to Mary as a guide on this journey.
