About Me

I am a farm girl yogi who combines multiple modalities to help women release their past and rediscover themselves in order to step fully into their charmed life.

With gentle movement (yoga) we become comfortable in our bodies. We become comfortable moving and with how we move. And we become comfortable taking up space. This is the first step.

Next, through the use of meditation, tapping, and energy work, we go inwards to reconnect with the parts of ourselves we thought were lost.

Only when the inner and outer selves are in harmony can we move forward, ready to reclaim our hearts.

Hi There, I’m Mary (and SuperDuck)

My connection with the natural rhythms of nature began at a young age when I helped on my great-grandparents’ family farm and my grandma’s garden. This connection continued as I discovered my spirituality and began life on my own. In the early 2000s I was attuned to reiki, and a few years later I published one of the first books on animal reiki. Though my work lay dormant while caring for my mother took priority, in 2013 I moved to our homestead in the Missouri Ozarks with the desire to finally bring my spiritual vision to life.

Along the way I, too, had to remember who I was and deal with the “stuff” life throws at us. I am a chronic illness warrior, and my vision is provide tools and support that are as accessible as possible.

May your heart be light and your laughter easy.

Why Charmed Chicken?

Charmed = extremely lucky or prosperous (Merriam-Webster dictionary)

You don’t think of chickens as being particularly lucky. And yet, since antiquity chickens (roosters in particular) have been considered sacred animals. Roosters have been said to be messengers to the gods, going so far as to equate the Celtic Lugus with the Roman Mercury or messenger of the gods.

Chickens are seen as “scaredy cats”. They’re considered a food source. And yet, they have the potential to be powerful, sacred (and even lucky) creatures. In my home, they’re also pampered and protected, hence “charmed chicken” because the only kind of chickens I keep are charmed (lucky and prosperous based on chicken standards).

You’re a sacred being who deserves to be prosperous and lucky. You deserve to be pampered. You deserve to live that charmed life, too.
