Having each lost our spouses at a young age, we met while volunteering for an organization that supports the widowed community all across the world. We became fast friends, and dreamed of creating a space for people to connect over the comfort and understanding that various holistic and energetic practices can bring into our lives. Many hours of phone calls, studying, and certifications later, the Groves of Zen was born.
My journey with the energetic realms began after the sudden death of my fiance in 2014. In an instant, what I believed about the world and our role in it shifted dramatically and I began searching for answers. Without any clue as to what caused his death, I skeptically began seeking out mediums who could connect with his spirit to answer some of our questions. Through my many experiences, it became quite clear that people actually do have the ability to connect with others who have passed; thus began my journey into the energetic and spiritual worlds, where I was shocked to find a common theme – that we all have the ability to connect to the energy that surrounds us…we’ve just turned it off over time.
Taking a deep dive into the energetic world and our connection to it, I stumbled into the comfort, peace, and joy that comes from ancient healing modalities such as Reiki and DNA Activation. I fell in love with working with the Angels, Archangels, and Ascended Masters, and it’s my honor to bring all of this to you here in the Groves of Zen.
Mary is an RN Certified Aromatherapist. She obtained her Registered Nurse and Public Health Nurse license, as well as her Bachelors of Science in Nursing degree in 2003. With a calling to teach she received her Masters of Science in Nursing in 2012 with an emphasis in Nursing Education.
Mary always had a sense there was more, more to medicine and more to the well being of her patients. During her many years as a hospice nurse, she witnessed first hand the power of comfort and healing using non traditional types of treatments. In her education studies she continued to pursue the elements of alternative treatments. After the sudden death of her husband in 2010, leaving her broken and the mother of 2 small boys, her perspective changed. She sought out not only physical well being, but universal well being and the importance of being happy. This drive opened a new world of toxin free living. Enter…essential oils and energy healing modalities. Her love of all things natural grew into a love of product creation, as well as substituting as many natural products as possible with anything synthetic, especially medications. She became a certified nurse aromatherapist in 2020 through the Integrative Aromatherapy Certification Program as well as a certified Reiki Practitioner.
