Hi, I'm Mara. I'm a Canadian artist, healer, and teacher in the field of energy healing. I have been sensing energies since I was a child and have been doing energy healing naturally since my teen years. It was much later that I took formal training where I learned to develop and refine these
innate talents into the healing art it is today. I'm a student of ancient and modern maps of human
consciousness studies. A woman who has been dedicated to the pursuit of spiritual knowledge and mystical insight my whole life. I am interested in occultism and human development and was influenced by humanistic astrologer Dane Rudyher, Helena Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society, and the Esoteric Teachings of Alice B. Bailey since the late 1980's. In 2010, I immersed myself into the teachings of
Integral Yoga Psychology, and the relationship of our life energies to health illness, and healing
focused on the unconscious, subconscious, conscious, and super-conscious mind.
I have practiced some form of rhythmic body movement since childhood, cultivating energy flow through movement to increase the flow of the body's qi, the universal life force. I was a competitive rhythm (jazz) tap dancer for ten years. I have an exuberant passion for traditional yoga, discovered and practiced it in the late 1970's. I'm a Kundalini yoga practitioner.
Cultivating these concepts of balance and adaptation to a natural flow through movement has evolved into conscious movement teachings for healing and body health. My meditation practice and spiritual principles are now at the qualitative and quantitative level following Integral
Yoga Psychology approaches. I blend elements of intuitive and spiritual awareness, and celestial insights (Channel medium, Integral Yoga Psychology, evolutionary astrology), spiritual healing (Advanced Integrative Energy Healing, healing medium), meridian based modalities (TWR/WHEE, internal trajectories and the 12 meridians, foot reflux points), somatic based approaches (Somatic Physiology), conscious movement, meditation, relaxation and imagery, sound, and awareness dialogue.
In 2013, I traveled to Pondicherry, Southern India for an Internship through One World Service where my primary interest was working with Tamil village women and children and local health providers teaching biofield healing, breathing techniques, meditation, and conscious movement. I was delighted to offered energy healing treatments to Tamil villager's through the Thamarai Healing Center in Edyachavady near Auroville.
I am a lead instructor in the Integrative Energy Healing™ Programs at Langara College, Vancouver, Canada. I have enhanced my skills by developing a specialty in somatic and trauma-based Integrative Energy Healing™ for trauma. I am a certified Transformative Wholistic Reintegration (TWR/WHEE) facilitator. I was invited to participate as a Advanced Integrative Energy Healing research intern for eight months of research with Fraser Health
Authority's forensic nurse team dealing with stress and vicarious trauma in the workplace. Where the findings were presented at the Energy Psychology Conference in 2015 in B.C. The Strategic Resilience for First Responders and the Strategic Resilient for First Nations Communities programs were created out of this research in 2015-2020.
Opening up to a new paradigm, I was one of the pioneers in using Advanced Integrative Energy Healing in Vancouver Coastal Health and Fraser Health Authority's eating disorder recovery community (2012) where it was used for the first time consecutively for recovery support. In addition, I have extensive experience using Advanced Integrative Energy Healing in an addictions treatment recovery arena, since 2011.
I am deeply grateful to have found this work as it has changed my entire experience of myself, how I interact with others, and how I navigate
