Meeting People Where They Are
Mary’s background in the fields of pastoral ministry and hospital chaplaincy taught her that one thing matters: being present. People who have received her teachings at conferences, wellness fairs, organizations, and spiritual retreat centers notice that this is one thing that makes her unique among speakers, trainers, and retreat-leaders. Another thing that makes her a valued teacher is a shared survivorship and practice of walking the talk.

Program participants remark that they value Mary’s personal experience, down-to-earth style, sense of humor, and passion (fueled by and tempered by compassion). Mary’s speaking, training, and retreat programs often invite participants to rest, dance, pray, sing, and share stories.
