Hi There, I’m Mary
My interest in the new age began in the mid 90’s. I wrote extensively for Circle Network News, was published in SageWoman, and received my first reiki attunement in 2011. I discovered yoga about the same time, as I was searching for answers after a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. As someone with an invisible illness, who meets the criteria for disabled, I often felt left out of traditional yoga and “wellness” spaces.
My illness was all in my head, I was told. Coincidentally, that was the same phrase used by medical doctors who chose not to treat a “syndrome”, since many fibromyalgia (along with other chronic illnesses which predominantly affect female-presenting individuals) is treated like “hysteria”. I knew I wasn’t “crazy” and there had to be answers.
I won’t lie; I’m still search in many ways. But what I’ve found in the meantime is that the Chicken Yogi way (especially when combined with my Charmed Chakra practices), helps ease a lot of the symptoms of my fibromyalgia. They make my life better. And I know they’ll help you, too.
But I’m doing more than helping people with chronic illnesses. My desire is to bring what I’ve learned to support and nurture those with wounded souls to help them find themselves again. Because what we’re not told, is especially if you have a chronic illness, internalized ableism means you try so hard to “normal”. And what’s that, really? A setting on the dryer? Yeah, I know you’ve heard that before. But seriously. Who the hell is normal these days?
But “normal” exists, even for those of us with wounded souls, and we try so hard to match society’s expectations that we lose ourselves. We start to believe the problem is with US, not a biological or chemical reaction within our bodies, or even systemic issues we need to change.
So I’m here to tell you that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. There’s a good chance YOU ARE NOT THE PROBLEM. You’re not your thoughts. You’re not your actions. And I will never tell you to positive think your way out of systemic socioeconomic trauma and oppression.
I will show you tools and practices to help you feel better, live better, and most importantly, rediscover who you are and what you want to be. You only get one life. Let’s crow about it!
