When I asked a few people to summarize the impact of what they’ve learned from me in just one word, this is what they said:
I understand what it feels like to be searching for a feeling of peace. To yearn for a state of calm, and to want to feel powerful.
You can see it, and sometimes you feel it … but you can’t seem to hold onto it for very long.
I suffered from symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder for 30 years. Thirty years! I thought I had done everything I could to get well. I did therapy — lots of it — and every self-help program out there, it seemed like. I’d feel better, and then … I wouldn’t.
All I wanted was a sense of peace and happiness. A realization that something might be possible for me, and a way to create a better life for myself.
What I didn’t realize until 2014 was that I already had the answer. All I had to do was turn and look in a new direction. Everything changed. And I do mean everything.
Within a month of discovering what I now teach people, my symptoms of PTSD faded into the background, and today I don’t even remember what it felt like to live that way.
I’m now living the life of my dreams, open to possibility, to success — to everything.
My practice is based solely on the simplicity of understanding found in the Three Principles, originally described that way by Sydney Banks in the 1970s. As of this writing — spring of 2015 — I have coached more than 40 people in the principles and have seen how their lives have shifted in ways they could never have imagined. Just as mine has.
Nice things people have said about working with me
I had been fighting with a very loud voice in my head that’s causing me to doubt everything I’d been working on. Mary’s deceptively simple approach goes straight to the heart of the matter. Not only was I able to get past the nagging voice, but I now have a simple word that I use to set me straight whenever I am feeling stuck. The word? ‘Poof!’Lou Blaser, SecondBreaks.com
After having worked with Mary I am, in fact, living in a peaceful happiness that I never even realized was within reach. My gratitude is beyond description. My life feels calmer, fuller, and more happy than ever. Seriously. Living in happiness.Allison Walsh, RainseedMarketing.com
On the personal side …
I’m an avid fiction writer (you can find my books online under the pen name Maggie Waters), traveler, photographer, knitter and novice ukelele player who likes to think she sings better than she actually does. Art and classical music lover — Beethoven is to die for. So is chocolate, which I consume daily, without fail.
Paris is my favorite city in the world, followed closely by NYC, where I now live. I must admit, though, this native Californian doesn’t always like the weather here on the East Coast! I love my smart and creative daughter and my talented husband. And our two kitties — Sophia and Starbuck — are almost as adorable as my daughter and hubby. Maybe skip the “almost” in that last sentence.
