Words of wisdom
“Maria’s methodology is a true representation of her passions & her gifts. In our work together, I was able to cultivate a stronger connection between my mind & my body, and unearth a powerful vision for myself as a creator. As a result, I am infinitely more grounded, not just in my personal practice, but on my journey to self actualization."
"Maria's teaching style is so valuable that I wish it was fundamental part of an educational program offered to a wide group of individuals. It brought forth many thoughts and blockages that I needed to feel and work through to be lighter. It also gave me tools to use in the future to continue this process throughout all aspects of my life. Maria's teaching style is beautifully direct and creative. All love and beauty surround her. Each word she speaks is filled with knowledge and passion. She leaves room for your own interpretations while guiding you to see things from another perspective."
“Working with Maria has been incredible. We accomplished in a couple of hours what likely would have taken me weeks to plan and sort through. Maria’s holistic approach brought a sense of peace & calm to the process, allowing me to trust myself and the work I do. I’ve learned so much from working with her and it has given me to confidence to continue to expand my business in a new way.”
