I have developed relaxation skills  

I am 9 years old. Since January, Maria has been picking me up from school one day per week, taking me home, and doing yoga and much more. In addition to learning new yoga poses, I have developed relaxation skills through meditation. Maria is someone I can talk to. She’s a good secret keeper, and she teaches me new words that I had never heard before, such as “ahimsa,” which means non-violence. She has been really helpful.

Integral part of my healing  

Last year I suffered emotional trauma over the loss of a romantic partner, and Maria helped me get through the painful process. I'm very fortunate and immensely grateful to have had Maria's enormous heart and mind be an integral part of my healing over the last few months. Call her a healer, spiritual adviser, coach, therapist, a good friend, or all of the above, Maria brings many strengths to the table when she opens her heart to you. First, she

Last year I suffered emotional trauma over the loss of a romantic partner, and Maria helped me get through the painful process. I'm very fortunate and immensely grateful to have had Maria's enormous heart and mind be an integral part of my healing over the last few months. Call her a healer, spiritual adviser, coach, therapist, a good friend, or all of the above, Maria brings many strengths to the table when she opens her heart to you. First, she has an incredible amount of empathy. She has a spiritual presence and sense of calm and insight that provide one with a sense of safety to be vulnerable and receiving. Second, she has a keen intellect which combined with her own life experience, brings a wealth of first-hand, unique emotional intelligence to the equation. Third, Maria is also well-read, knowledgeable of other experts, has a vast network of healers, and other resources that bring a rich touch of second-hand knowledge to the healing process. Fourth, Maria is focused, diligent, and creative in thinking of solutions that connect with a person's unique identity, experience and soul. All of this incredible energy, and also crucial to mention is that Maria also challenged me to do the hard work on myself to gain clarity and a wider, more empathetic understanding of myself and my role in the trauma that I suffered and in the process, helped me travel down a path of forgiveness, kindness, and a love of self and others. Maria is truly an angel and it is my firm belief that anyone who is fortunate enough to receive her therapeutic gifts will be a very, very lucky and happier person.

Breathing easier, more relaxed  

Maria taught me basic breathing techniques that have helped me sleep better and feel more relaxed throughout the day. I have a hectic job, but it's refreshing to be more aware now, even about simple joys like bird song in the morning.

Don't pass up this guided meditation!  

I recently was blessed to participate in a guided meditation session with Maria and am so thankful to have had the opportunity. Her calming presence, tranquil spirit, and vivid imagery helped me easily step aside from everything going on in my day and be completely present in and focused on the moment. Maria is gifted with an extra measure of intuitiveness, which enables her to craft meditations that are a perfect fit for those receiving them, and her careful instruction

Her calming presence, tranquil spirit, and vivid imagery helped me easily step aside from everything going on in my day and be completely present in and focused on the moment. Maria is gifted with an extra measure of intuitiveness, which enables her to craft meditations that are a perfect fit for those receiving them, and her careful instruction makes it easy for even beginners to center themselves and restore their groundedness. I came away from the session lighter, refreshed, and with a greater sense of focus on what is truly most important. If you have the opportunity to work with Maria, definitely don’t pass it up!

Being myself  

After a few days at Blossom Camp, my daughter, who was 9 then, said, 'Mommy, I have never felt so comfortable being myself.' She had never said that before.
