A Path of Grace
What is Grace?
How might we add more of it to our lives?
Grace is woven into those sacred moments we all experience in life.
Perhaps it has been observed when we are moved by the hues in a sunset
or the vibrant yet ephemeral beauty of a rainbow on a stormy afternoon.
Grace is felt when someone extends a kindness at the moment we need it most;
or known when we feel a prayer or longing has been answered.
It even emerges into our awareness in the middle of an ordinary moment in an ordinary day.
And it is most poignant when it arises in the middle of life's greatest challenges.
No matter the body of spiritual belief we each may hold as sacred within ourselves-
be it through a specific religious system or not,
perhaps through the wonders and gifts of the natural world-
Living with grace, remembering your truth and purpose, living a more sacred life is possible!
Marnie has spent nearly a decade apprenticing with time tested spiritual and wisdom keepers
from around the world having travelled to India, China, and South America,
on spiritual and educational sabbaticals, learning directly from the elders and the land in these locations.
She continues to learn and deepen her apprenticeship with the land, Spirit, and her teachers.
Marnie's work is non-secular and will compliment a wide array belief systems.
Her work is designed to meet you where you are
to help you remember the wisdom you already hold within yourself
that may seem blocked or veiled to you at this time.
She considers her work to be medicine for the soul and a weary or closed heart.
Marnie has spent a lifetime listening to and learning from the sages and her muses in natural landscapes.
She is answering an inner calling through this path of service to others
and tailors each offering to be unique to each client's needs.
This is not therapy, this is a pathway into living a life that is sacred to you.
"Though the work we do together may lead to healing, it is not Marnie who does the healing, it is you.
I merely hold sacred space for you and listen from my heart into the heart of your soul's longing, and then I bear witness and accompany you on your journey along the path that you choose.
And this is my profound honor"
This component of our medicine work together incorporates a hybrid blend of personal exploration and virtual connection (Video/Texting/Reading/ Journaling). Marnie intuits her guidance based on your unique intentions and needs infused with practices from
sacred lineages she has apprenticed with.
Integral to this spiritual path, you are invited into natural landscapes: either guided in- person, or solo into a local wild space in your own home ecosystem. These invitations on the land help you rewild and connect deeply in healing ways, communing with natural elements and your non-human companions (flora/fauna) that surround and enliven your life. In this work together, Marnie applies her sensitivity and relationships with the spirits of the land and elemental energies to hear the invitations that come directly from them, that can serve as medicine for each client until the client can hear them too.
This facet of our work together incorporates ceremony and ritual into your practice. Based on the path we
co-create, these ceremonies can take place in-person or virtually from your home sanctuary. The possibilities in how we set this container will endeavor to deeply serve your intentions!
