To know who we are and how we want to authentically engage with the world, we get curious and pay attention to the signs within and all around us.

We use everything that arises, including your resistance, to cultivate the self-awareness that leads to transformation. Listening to the intelligence of the body and the heart, in union with the mind, will guide you to embodying your unique wisdom that is so needed in the world at this time.
Mary Saunders

With her direct and compassionate presence, Mary collaborates with you in a dynamic process that gets you in touch with what is important to you and the choices you can make to engage more fully with life. When you are aligned inwardly, grounded in the body and the heart, you become more skilled in responding to the need of the moment.



Individual Mentoring
Typically, Mary works with clients for at least three months. This three month period is usually sufficient for behavioral shifts that make a real and measurable difference in your life. During this time, there will be two hours of phone sessions per month, plus email communication as needed. Working together may continue, on a less regular basis, for as long as it serves your best interests. Mary is available to work with you for a shorter amount of time as well.

More often than not, you will leave your session with actions to take and inquiries to ponder. Most of the learning and shifting happens between appointments, giving you ample time to experience and explore the changes taking place before the next session.

Mentoring Practitioners
Mary is a natural educator who now mentors healthcare practitioners individually and in group seminars. When practitioners do their own inner work it enables them to live the wisdom they teach their clients, making them more effective clinicians. Mentoring supports you to look deeply at what works, and what doesn’t, in your current professional situation and then guides you to changes that reflect your values and offer more satisfaction.
