The spiral is one of
the oldest symbols of human spirituality. Dating back thousands of years, it has
been an emblem for the Goddess. It occurs naturally in nature (DNA, shells,
rocks and galaxies). It symbolizes the energies of creation, evolution,
self-transformation and the healing process - the journey of traveling to the
center of the divine self and bringing forth new life, regeneration and rebirth.
Goddess Healing embodies this principle and empowers all of Mary’s work.
follows the Wise Women tradition, holding a container of loving support and
nurturing, so a person can venture as deeply as they are willing and able to
strongly believe that we each carry our wisdom and our answers deep within us.
It is the healing process that allows it to become accessible."
All of Mary’s work supports
this belief and is very evident in her approach as a psychotherapist in which
she has created a holistic and eclectic container of traditional and
non-traditional healing tools that support an organic healing process. Mary
holds a safe sacred space for her clients to deepen into their healing journey
honouring both the darkness and light within,
following the spiral path.

“Mary - mentor, positive mother, sister, friend,
nature healer, nurturer, consoler, guide, advice giver, peace giver and a
lifeline through the darkness. You have brought me to my true self again.
You have helped me to heal my body, mind and spirit. Made me stronger,
more myself, more present, more in my essence. I feel blessed to have known you
and worked with you. Thank you.” ~
“An image of a woman in her
radiant power and grounded grace reminds me of you. You carry light within you
and thanks for knowing, truly knowing the dark also. Thanks for your wisdom, for
the giving and loving, mothering and guiding. It has helped to sustain me in the
darkness and the void, reaching new depths of love and connection to the
Goddess.” ~ Nan Keyser (psychotherapist)
“I feel like expressing my deep gratitude for the work I did with you
some years ago now. My psychotherapy /hypnotherapy practice is thriving
and a great joy in my life. The way you worked with me comes through my
own work with people now - something that cannot be taught in any school.
I thank god/goddess that you were there to help me work through that
terrible imprint in the right way - in a deeply lasting and truly transformative
way. I trust you thrive on every level and send you my love. Namaste” ~
Laurie Weinberg (psychotherapist)
“Dear Mary, I want to express my appreciation for your method of
psychotherapy. It has allowed me to reclaim so much of my life. You create a
safe sacred space in which I am able to face my fears that I have had for such a
long, long time.
I met you at a time when I most needed a healer who could help me explore
the inner aspects of my soul that were confused, in pain and at a loss for
direction. Unlike the other therapies I had been to, your focus has always been
on empowering me to develop my own consciousness and courage to make the changes
necessary for healing in my own timing. Now I know that until the internal
changes occur, we continue in patterns that are unhealthy and until we can deal
with the feelings connected to these patterns, they will recur.
Without even knowing it, I was searching for my connection to the Divine
Feminine for years. By working with you, I have gained the understanding and the
courage to re-connect to the Goddess and to live this truth in my life. All of
this is a process of unfolding into all that I can be. Thank you.”
~ Beverley MacPherson
“Thank you Mary for being here and now. Your presence has been a gift.
Your patience, guidance and wisdom have helped me to trust again – most
importantly, in myself. I want to
acknowledge and give thanksgiving for all that you are. Because of all the work
you have done and the depths you have reached, you have been able to hold a
space and guide me to a new level of healing in my process and in my life.”
“Just a little note to express my gratitude for your patience, your
support, clarity, guidance and kind loving words of wisdom over the past
year.“ ~ Effie K.
“Mary is and provides comfort, re-assurance, safety and healing. Along
with these virtues, her teachings are of such great value. The greatest gift she
has given me is a safe place to share all my emotions, thoughts and feelings
without being judge. I am grateful for her.” ~ D.M.
The Healer’s Hand is an ancient
symbol representing the energy emitting hand
of a spiritual healer.
THE PROFANE: SYMBOLS IN FEMINIST GODDESS WORSHIP
Marzo is a psychotherapist who consciously blends Goddess Feminism with her
work. Her office is deliberately
located in the basement of her home because: “…as you can see, sense, feel,
we are right here in Mother earth in this room, so there’s also a feeling of
being held and contained.” (Marzo 2002:7) I suggest that Mary is creating a
womb space where her clients can heal their old selves and, in the process,
create new selves. This healing ‘wombspace’ is literally reflected by being located in the body (womb) of Mother Earth. The sense of “being held and
contained” within the Earth’s womb in which Mary has created her office,
allows her clients to hold and to nurture their wounded inner selves (ibid.). As
Mary’s clients climb the stairs out of her office after a session and exit her
house into the daylight, they are symbolically reborn – gradually, but surely.
When Mary “clears” her office of energy between clients and at the end of
the day (Marzo 2002:11), she is, I think, not only clearing the room of the
anger, sadness, and pain that her clients have released (ibid), but she is
ritually clearing the space so that another gestation may take place.”
speaks of spiral as a symbol for “the healing journey”. On the journey we
are not only healed from past traumas, but also returned to our core self and
re-birthed as a healed self. In other words, not only is the healing process
creative as discussed above, but the various selves which inhibit us and that,
in our pain are disjointed, are in the healing process placed in relationship to
Mary also mentions one way in which spiral is ritualized: the spiral dance. This
is a group ritual in which everyone holds hands and forms a spiral. The person
on the inside starts to move, the others following so that the leader will
become the person on the outside and the person started on the outside will end
up in the middle (Starhawk 1999 (1979): 258,259). It is important that while
participating in this ritual, dancers meet the eyes of those they pass, for
meeting eyes in sacred space “is interpreted both as ‘looking at the Goddess
and as meeting your ‘Self’ in the other person” (Salomonsen 2002: 120).
Mary claims that the spiral dance ritual “…contains within itself the true
form of healing because in humans the one that you face over and over and over
again is yourself: there is no one else in that sense. Everyone else (in the
dance) is a mirror. ” (Marzo 2002: 6). A
return to 'self' is, of course, the result.”
