Today we have the honor of bringing Marie from Colorado to do two Vibrational Sound Healing sessions for The Well Collective. Read all about Marie here:
Marie, a native from Philadelphia, first visited Colorado as a junior in high school while participating in Outward Bound. It was during that three-week adventure that Marie felt a deep connection to the natural world which challenged her to delight in the unexpected as she fell deeply in love with Colorado.
Marie began her career in Philadelphia where she taught middle school, studied theology, transcendental meditation, Buddhist meditation and ran retreats for youth, women and families. A contemplative at heart, she lived in a contemplative religious community, participated in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius thirty day retreat and frequently attends retreats at the Esalen Institute and The Omega Institute for Holistic Studies.
Marie’s journey took a turn to Corporate America and as a Director of Event Planning for Chase Econometrics, she visited more than twenty countries and all but two states in the US. After giving birth to her first child, Marie become a Certified Massage Therapist and Rolfer®, and opened a holistic health care practice that she has owned and operated for the past 27 years. Marie also served as an Executive Director for two non-profit organizations that supported women's social and emotional well-being.
In 1999, Marie faced an incredible health crisis resulting in 11 surgeries and a stroke caused by prolonged anesthesia. With good fortune, great treatment, a world renowned surgeon, Acupuncture, Rolfing, Massage, Healing Energy, the love of family, friends and her faith community, against all odds, Marierecovered and re-committed her life to studying holistic health and brought a deep healing consciousness to all aspects of her work. It was during Marie's recovery that she decided to move to Colorado and explained to her husband that annual vacations to the Rockies were not enough. Her husband understood this calling of the heart and agreed to that move once Marie made a full recovery. In 2006, Marie, her husband and two children set up residence in Fort Collins, Co. a place she is so grateful to call home.
Marie incorporates Aromatherapy, Swedish, Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Cranial Sacral Therapy, and Reflexology into her sessions. Marie is a Reiki Master, and as a transitional Doula, offered services that included providing continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother before, during and after childbirth and on a number of occasions provided services to families of loved ones transitioning to the other side. In 2014, Marie became a Level II Practitioner for Reconnective Healing® and in 2016 a Practitioner for The Reconnection®
