Facilitated in gratitude by Marye O’Brien (LIMITED PLACES AVAILABLE)
"Marye shares her unique ability to hold sacred space in such a deep and loving way that people feel safe enough to be vulnerable and let go of that which holds them back."
Marye O'Brien is an Ayurvedic practitioner, an intuitive energy and sound healer. Her work is motivated by her deep desire for a world where all beings feel safe, loved and nourished. Although Marye spent many years in the corporate world, she feels that the road to nourishment is not these external avenues but rather an inward one, a journey to the soul. Her son’s stillbirth and subsequent health crisis launched her onto a healing path that has given her insight and wisdom that she shares with a healing kindness. Her gentle but warrior spirit is bringing forth the message that we are divine energy beings with the ability to create and transform our reality.
TESTIMONY from July 2019 retreat participant:
I’m not sure I can find the words to explain the magic of Marye’s “Return to Wholeness” retreat that I was fortunate to be a part of this weekend.
We gathered at the beautiful Continental House where Marye held a sacred and nurturing space for us to share, learn, grow and heal. Yoga, meditation, sound baths, Ayurvedic treatments, a food as medicine workshop, sharing circles, rest, grounding, connection. We were nourished amongst nature in body, mind and spirit.
Thank you Marye for gifting us this space, this time and touching our lives in the most transformative way. - Carmen, Glenlyon

SOUND AS HEALING MEDICINE
Marye O’Brien, Sound Healer
The human voice is considered to be the supreme instrument of healing. Toning refers to the use of the voice for releasing pain and stress and helps to balance the body with healing frequencies. Marye uses overtoning, a technique whereby a practitioner allows themselves to be a channel to allow sacred healing sound and will then voice intuitively inspired sounds.
The practice of overtoning can have astonishing results. When you consider the scientific research acknowledging that sound can literally rearrange molecular structure, it is entirely possible for miraculous changes to occur including release of tension in the muscles, reduction or elimination of chronic pain, emotional release, realignment of the vertebrae and much more. Following a treatment, recipients of overtoning report feelings of deep inner peace and relaxation, blissful emotions, feeling light headed, release from physical pain, increased feelings of well-being and much more.
Marye is currently recording and producing a Sound Healing Meditation CD, which will be available for purchase later this year.
