The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.

Education, practice, and training to reclaim the wholeness of body, mind, and spirit

The answers we are seeking often lie within us: the symptoms and problems we experience hold a promise for deeper engagement with life when brought into consciousness and accepted.

Using techniques grounded in 30 years of experience as a practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine, somatic therapy, and meditation, Mary offers practical guidance to help us live in balance with our true nature, to bring body and soul back into harmony.

Mary has developed a creative, experiential process that provides useful tools for changing daily habits and behaviors. Working with her opens the door for an exploration of the beliefs, feelings, and needs that are calling for attention and a shift in consciousness.
