Mary is a suicide survivor. At the age of 22 her mother found her unconscious in their home basement. Upon arrival, paramedics revived Mary from a near-death state. She fell into a coma, where she was hospitalized for over 3 weeks. This desperate act was based on Mary’s marriage, which was verbal and physically abusive, by which her former husband withheld affection and replaced it with abandonment efforts to punish her. This condition was grounded on Mary’s cultural belief system, which reinforced staying in a marriage at all costs.
These experiences have allowed Mary to look at all things through the eyes of her heart. She now looks at people’s souls rather than their outward appearance or their status. There is no room for discrimination; all are equal in terms of their intrinsic value.
Today, Mary is a Grief Resolution Specialist licensed under the care of Edu-Therapy Canada. She exercises her functions through Sunflower Farms – Where Learning is Cultivated, working alongside amazing farm animals and conventional and integrated practitioners, who together comprise of a Community of cultivated growth.
