>Over 25 yrs helping people find spiritual health + well-being. Her Personal Evolution Counseling™ blends shamanism, intuition, + energy healing. Nature is her inspiration + nature-based practices, which are increasingly supported with evidence from psychology + neuroscience research, are a primary focus of her work.
She believes the spirit of nature infuses our personal world and professional worlds. It is one of the aspects of shamanism that engages Mara consistently and profoundly.
Nature speaks to us if we stop and listen. We are nature, nature is us. Shamans of all ages know this. Immersing ourselves in nature reactivates our connection to our source. It reminds us of our animal nature and of our divine nature. Being in nature helps break down the barriers our egos have created. It allows us to shift more easily to receptive states where we can hear our own instinctive voices as we hear the wind in the trees.
Being in nature makes it easy to look through our shaman’s eyes, to see the interconnection between all beings + the larger patterns at play. Nature creates a space where we can find union with each other + with the divine.
Mara’s books, CD's/MP3's + courses help others connect to their unique sources of guidance + healing. For more information visit www.WholeSpirit.com S:6E:192
