Mary’s encounter with regular meditation practice began in earnest in 1989. She initially attended retreats in France in the Vietnamese Mahayana tradition (Thich Nhat Hanh) where she took lay ordination in 1995. Subsequently Mary moved from Europe to Sri Lanka for seven years where she explored traditional Theravadan and Western Insight traditions before emigrating to Australia in 2003 . She is motivated by various Insight style retreats including open, spacious style practices such as Reflective Meditation (Linda Modaro) which continues to inspire her.
Mary is passionate about good therapy, human metamorphosis, post traumatic growth and various modalities of healing. She works 1-1 in private practice as a counsellor/psychotherapist based in Brisbane where she also leads MBSR and offers ongoing mentoring supervision to new meditation teachers.
