At this time, many of us live feeling separate from a source that sustains body, mind, and spirit. Distanced from both our inner knowing and the natural world, we often try to find meaning by striving to be more, better, or different in some way. There is a time for this seeking, and yet it too may become a way to avoid living what is real within you.

There may come a time when you long for another way of being, one that shifts awareness from striving to living in dynamic engagement with what is. If it feels right, I invite you to contact me to explore what this would mean for you.

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

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.
