Biography

Mary Lane, professional chef, personal consultant and authorA professional chef for over 30 years, Mary's book, Divine Nourishment/A Woman’s Sacred Journey with Food, draws upon the integration of her life’s journey.

Mary Lane: Through Mary’s 30 year career as a professional chef she awakened and deepened her understanding of the connection between food and nourishment, the wisdom of nature, sexuality, and the Divine Feminine. She discovered the desire to reclaim these aspects of ourselves lies beneath the surface of our collective movement toward sustainability and balance. She draws upon the wisdom of her own journey and weaves it with her expertise in the ancient Taoist 5 Element System of Nutrition, Plant Medicine, sacred sexuality, wildcrafting, and professional training as a chef. She is dedicated to supporting women to transform the self rejection buried in the shadowy depths of their unconscious to self care, honor and love.

She is a graduate of the California Culinary Academy, Nam Singh’s Academy of 5 Element Nutrition and Cooking with Chinese Herbs, Eliot Cowan’s Plant Medicine Training, and Clayton College of Nutrition. She apprenticed Marie Mellinger in wildcrafting wild foods in the Blue Ridge Mountains, studied with several teachers in herbalism, and has a strong background in Sacred Sexuality.

She has owned her own restaurant, flown the world as a high end private chef, catered numerous health and spiritual retreats, and was formerly chef and recipe developer for the highly acclaimed web site, worldshealthiestfoods.com.

She offers classes, workshops and private consultations on eating, cooking and living seasonally to align with the rhythm and flow of our environment, and provides intimate nourishing seasonal nature retreats for women.
