Mary spent 16 years in the computer software industry doing technical support, course development and training. She later received her Master's degree in Counseling and did post-graduate work in Clinical and Paranormal Psychology, as well as in Organization Development at the Humanistic Psychology Institute. She worked part time as a psychotherapist intern and has also developed, administered, summarized and reported attitude surveys for organizations.
Mary remains interested in, and devoted to, personal growth, alternative methods of learning, and complementary healing, especially in the area of “thinking outside the box”. She has studied Shamanism, Sound Healing, Reiki, Yoga, Palmistry, “Body/Soul Rhythms”, meditation and Overtone chanting, among many other things.
A graduate of the 2002 class, she feels the Nine Gates Mystery School pulled it all together for her and provided the integrating piece of the core energy needed to personally organize and implement her past work. Mary says, “Putting our learnings and the changes in our energy systems together, and using those combined skills with our kids, in our relationships, and in our communities, is where all the modalities and concepts are embodied. I am devoted to that ongoing work in the world.”
