Mary Myers, Co-Founder, Somatic Therapist and Success Coach

My approach to wellbeing is based in a deeply held understanding that mental and emotional health is our core nature.  However, sometimes our training, trauma, habits and neurological challenges make this wellbeing difficult for us to access.

In my work with clients, together we develop Mindfulness Practices and learn to contact the present moment, which is where our power lies.  We develop awareness of life habits and learn to observe how feelings are experienced in the body, which puts us in touch with our brilliant Emotional Guidance System.   This combination leads to an increased capacity to be present to yourself, and to see, understand and change your patterns.

Developing non-judgmental awareness of the self is the key to healthy change.  This understanding leads to the opportunity to make clear choices based in what is best for you.  It also leads to compassion for your life and your experiences, deeper connections with others, and an understanding of how to move in the direction of well-being and happiness.

For many years I have taught Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, a carefully developed program that is amazing effective in helping individuals understand their minds and emotions.  This has deeply informed my work, as has Somatic Experiencing, a powerful body based healing system that brings real and permanent recovery from old wounds.

I feel honored and privileged to do the work I do.  I am beyond lucky to have found this path of wellbeing, and I’d love to share it with you.

Peace to you!

The Bud


The bud
stands for all things,
even for those things that don’t flower,
for everything flowers,
from within,
of self-blessing;
though sometimes it is necessary
to reteach a thing
its loveliness,
to put a hand on
the brow of the flower
and retell it in words
and in touch
it is lovely
until it flowers again from within,

of self-blessing.

~ Galway Kinnell from St. Francis and the Sow
