Empowering our local community and businesses
through ancient and modern wellness techniques.

The Well - a place where kindness overflows.

 
In folklore, ‘the well’ symbolises a gathering place for a village where the community comes to seek out life-giving nourishment from Mother Earth.

The Well is a symbol of abundance, flow, ease and connection - all the aspects of life we are all craving in 2022 as we find ourselves in a different reality to what we may have known before. As we receive nature’s gifts at The Well, we can rest, rejuvenate and ultimately re-motivate ourselves to move forward in our lives. The Well gives us a chance to quieten our minds so we can hear, love and respond to that voice within us that is reminding us we are safe and everything is OK.

The voice at The Well we hear so softly is the same voice that gives power to our desires and can provide us, if we allow, with that spark to energise us once again to follow our dreams and set powerful intentions for our lives, our health and our tribe. To continue the work, we must return daily to our home selves for life-sustaining daily practices of breathwork, meditation, movement, nutrition and stress relief.

Spending time at The Well empowers us to live our lives simply and always with ease and flow.

Maiaveda has been creating authentic, sacred and blissful wellness treatments, retreats, workshops and community gatherings for the Macedon Ranges, Melbourne and beyond communities for over 10 years now, helping 100’s of women, men, business owners, families, young people, to empower their lives through a pathway of developing a personal wellness journey.

It is never more important than now to reconnect and re-remember the importance of each of our personal wellness journey as we collectively feel the after wash of the past two years:

  • COVID fatigue
  • Overwhelm
  • Disillusionment
  • Loss of desire
  • Broken down resilience
  • Unresolved trauma
  • Forgiveness
  • Neglected self-care

Our new programs for 2022 are here to specifically help business owners, business teams and health care providers to build back their healthy bodies, minds and hearts so they can continue their own work and continue to support the ones they love.

At Maiaveda we are indeed, well-wishers.

If you are in need for some well-wishing and wellness support, join us now on one of our new programs for 2022.

We are excited to share The Well with you.

The simple teachings of tenderness has the power to change everything, from the inside out.

Are you looking for peace in an increasingly chaotic world?

Marye’s teachings do not belong to any tradition or lineage, they arise from her own lived wisdom, and are accessible to all.

After years of spiritual seeking, meditation, and immersion in Vedic and healing practices, a series of initiations from childhood and an experience of the dark night of the soul, led Marye to a profound inner awakening and a direct experience with Spirit.

Birthing Maiaveda in 2011, enabled Marye to integrate her gifts and learnings, through her devotion and embodying our true authority as love, she has accepted her calling to teach. Marye speaks and inspires from an open heart, sharing her deep understanding of the human journey, born out of her own experience.
