Pathways to the Self

Healing the shadow

Are you looking for Self Healing?

Are you seeking to be better able to be with what triggers you in relationship?

Are you longing to deepen your connection with life, with yourself, in relationship, with friends and family as well as in your profession.

Are you  a counsellor, psychotherapist, body-worker, healer, life coach, doctor, nurse, complementary therapist or social worker and do you have a longing to be a more effective  practitioner and  deepen your client work? 

Or maybe you are someone who is on a path of personal transformation and you have a genuine interest in knowing yourself better and healing your shadow issues?


Stillness empowerment connection

This Pathways to the Self course offers an opportunity to all who seek healing, stillness, empowerment and connection and a much improved relationship with life.

You will work on what is unresolved in your heart and in your life experience

You are invited to engage in a journey of personal tranformation, finding a more truthful, peaceful and inspired YOU as well as solidifying your ability to be with all that life brings.

You will strengthen your ability to be with whatever arises in the moment, learn to engage with and be more able to meet the challenges and joys of all that life brings and ground into a heartful and compassionate way of being.

You will be met wherever you are in yourself, whether you just begin on your spiritual journey or consider yourself more advanced.

You will learn much about yourself

...... how you block your energy, your joy, creativity, vitality, and discover, through deep self-enquiry, how you unconsciously hold enriching life experience away from yourself. You will begin to notice how you stop yourself from what you most want from life due to past painful experience that still hold you back in fear.

You will receive the tools and support in letting go of painful memories and bad habits and you will be encouraged to make new choices that lead to a more desirable, empowered and fulfilling life.



 The energetic approach to life I offer in this course has received close to 100% positive feedback in being truly transformative. This is what some of the Pathways travellers have said.

"This course has been deeply nourishing and life changing for me. I arrived at the course with low batteries, not knowing exactly how to change my life to feel more joyful. The programme turned out to be a great composition of valuable teachings, process time and doing exercises. That it was held over a period of nine months gave me time to integrate and align my life towards happiness and authenticity. I do understand myself better - and be more kind towards me and others as a result. To have such a dedicated teacher was a learning and blessing in itself. I felt in a very loving and safe space with a good structure. It has been a great time of personal growth. Great to have the feeling of being able to create the quality of life I want to live!"  Jutta S, Germany

"I am very, very glad, and grateful that I took the step of coming on this programme. The benefits have been great, and the power of the programme as an intense learning experience is more than I expected. I think you could certainly call it life changing. I think it must be rare to have such a very strong, safe, supportive arena for healing and change as this. I think this is primarily due to the experience, strength, focus and wisdom of Maria, which I am awed by.

At first it seemed like the homework (like all homework) would be a slog, but I now see it as a welcome invitation to again 'check in' with myself, to identify with the 'benign inner witness' which the programme encourages us to develop. Maria is so professional and compassionate. The course is a wonderful mix of spiritual philosophy, energy consciousness and psychological development. Basically, I recommend this course wholeheartedly and 100%!" Gael L. Aberdeen


We wil use a particular personality map to engage with, heal and resolve the places in us that are defended and locked away to keep ourselves protected.

We will work with the power of Intention to steer our life and choices into the direction we want it to go, releasing willfulness and aligning to our Core Self.

We will work with aspects of Core Energetics, Body Mind Psychotherapy and Pathwork, draw from the world of energy medicine (chakras, energy therapy), and I'll also engage you with the spiritual wisdom of the Findhorn Foundation Community.

This rich journey promises to strengthen  your grounded, empathic authentic compassionate Healing Presence as your container for life and, to better meet your personal and professional needs gives you the tools to be able to stay present with todays global challenges.
