Mary Sue Rabe is the Founder and Director of Women Healing the World–a creative community of women who make a difference for other women in their communities. She is also the author of a personal memoir and fascinating series of stories on race relations, gender relations and a beautiful, philosophical exploration of humanity. It’s called Stand There… These are what we call MindStories – stories that expand our consciousness. Mary grew up in a small town in Central Texas in a conservative Southern environment. She was encouraged to go to college to get her “MRS” degree which meant to just find herself a good husband. She was also encouraged to get a teaching certificate to have something to fall back on– just in case. After her marriage didn’t work out, she became a single working mother of two small daughters, teaching children with learning disabilities. There were few resources to help women in her position, at that time. She struggled during those years financially, but began exploring personal growth, energy healing, women’s empowerment, mindset enhancement, and enjoyed the freedom of living life on her own terms. Now in her retirement years, with decades of experience in teaching, training, mentoring, bio field healing and providing/promoting events to expand consciousness, Mary is a coach and speaker and author, and is excited to be bringing the feminine power of healing to those in need, to make a better world for everyone.
