She brings her inclusive, non judgmental presence, mindfulness and joy to all areas of her life through zen practice, mothering, dance, the visual arts, gardening and cooking fabulously nurturing meals.
Maru is available for individual sessions by appointment as well as supervision, workshops and group presentations.
“I believe in all that has never yet been spoken
I want to free what waits within me
so that what no one has dared to wish for
may for once spring clear without my contriving
May what I do flow from me like a river,
no forcing and no holding back,
the way it is with children”
Rainer Maria Rilke
