My name is Mary Isis and it is my joy to support people who are ready and willing to do the
courageous work that is necessary to walk a path of transformation.

We are as much a part of nature as is the hummingbird, the deer or the dolphin. No matter how much our fast paced society works to disconnect us from the “web of life,” we directly depend on nature for our survival because we ARE nature. When we are disconnected from the natural world, we suffer physically, mentally and emotionally. By prioritizing our connection with nature we ensure more health and vitality in our lives and more space for inspiration to fill us.
Because we humans are “creatures of habit,” we can inevitably end up developing certain habits or patterns out of our attempts to cope with our challenges that can end to working against our healing and growth. This is where the power of ritual can play an important role in strengthening our resilience, cultivating and empowering our relationship to life and purpose, and integrating and honoring life’s many transitions. In this fast paced world of daily routines and work, our intentional daily ritual practices can ensure our growth, wellbeing and the potential to make a positive contribution in this world.
At the very core essence of all life is vibration (sound). What we call the “universe” is in truth, “one song.” As humans, we utilize sound for our communication, our enjoyment and our healing. However, when used irresponsibly, we can actually cause harm through our words and sound vibrations. Through “sacred sound,” we practice and exercise our abilities to use the power of sound to contribute to healing and growth: We become more careful and intentional with our thoughts and words we “put out there” as well as the vibrations we receive in to our beings. Your voice is a powerful instrument- with the potential to express and create more truth, love and beauty in this world through its sacred words and sounds.
If you are suffering in addiction, whether it be from substance dependency or behavioral, you likely feel that you have lost a sense of deep connection with your true self. You may have tried many times to break free from this patterning which you know deep down is destructive to your life and relationships. The nature of addiction is secrecy and deception. We tend to either hide or deny our addictions because we feel shame around it because often times there is so much stigma and misunderstanding around addiction. Acknowledging you need help and then reaching out for support and being totally honest with yourself and another person is a really important step towards your freedom.
We humans are “creatures of habit” and we pick up many patterns in our life- whether it be from our family upbringing, relationships, societal influences, trauma or otherwise. Some patterns end up causing more harm than good. I seek to bring more understanding to the nature of addiction, which affects us ALL in some way or another.
Transformational recovery is a process that does not abide by our societal time lines (as much as we would like it to be!) Having compassionate support, witnessing, reflection and accountability in this process and journey of recovery is essential.
Transformational Recovery is different from the more common recovery programs "out there" and it can be embraced along with recovery programs such as 12 Step. It involves building the resilience and skills needed to meet the challenges of your life and relationship. It embraces non-conventional forms of healing. Its about doing the inner work and outer work required for true transformation- making the changes in your life that will support your sobriety and bring more love and acceptance of self.
The tranquility that one seeks therefore, is "earned" through diligent practice and effort.
Change isn’t easy. Just as it takes time to develop harmful habits and patterns, it also takes time to re-pattern and repair damage that has been done. This requires awareness, and diligent effort to integrate new ways of being- essentially to re-pattern and re-program our lives. It also can require being held accountable, to integrate these new ways of being.
The integration of new and beneficial skillsets and mindsets can be a daily practice and the beautiful thing is that YOU get to choose what feels true to YOU.
Transformational recovery is a process of integrating new ways of living that can bring the joy and tranquility your soul yearns for.
