Do We Create Our Reality?

12-29-16  Do We Create Our Reality?

In this program, Mary offers an in-depth exploration of the idea that we create our own reality, looking at both the upside and the downside of this belief.  And in this exploration, she reveals the joy of showing up for reality rather than the frustration of always trying to make it be a particular way.

The Peace of Wild Things

When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For the time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
Wendell Berry

Coming Home to Your Heart

12-08-16   Coming Home to Your Heart

We have learned how to be deeply unkind with ourselves, locking many parts of us out of our hearts.  The more we are unkind with ourselves, the more we react to the world.  Mary shares a powerful story of one human being who used a tragedy to heal his heart and now he is traveling the world sharing the invitation to move beyond hate and ignorance.  Mary then shows how to heal your reactive, judgmental mind so that you can become a healing presence in the world.

Healing the Division

11-24-16   Healing the Division

When you look at the news, it looks like things are falling apart.  There are random terrorist attacks, global warming, millions of refuges, and the polarization of the latest US Election.  How would your experience of all of this be different if you discovered how to relate to what is happening on our planet as a breakthrough time rather than a breakdown.  Come explore with Mary how to be with all of this chaos in a way that allows you to become a part of the healing that is happening on our planet.

Befriending Anger

11-10-16   Befriending Anger

Even though we all have Anger, it is often considered to be bad or wrong.  That is because we stuff it and don’t see it until it erupts.  Anger, rather than being an enemy is a necessary tool for maneuvering through life.  It signals us when something inside needs the healing of our attention. It also is our fire that allows us to say “yes” when we need to say “yes” and “no” when we need to say “no.”  Mary invites you to join her in exploring how to create a healing relationship with your anger so that it becomes a friend on your journey through life.
