I enjoyed your session on the World Summit. I found that your words resonated with me more so than any other speaker that I have listened to. I finally understand the disconnect that has been frustrating me for so long. I have participated in so many online summits, read hundreds of books, tried numerous diets and cleanses but always ended up where I started from, frustrated!!!
I believe that you gave me the piece of the puzzle that has been missing all along, or maybe you just put it in better words that I could understand. I realize now that I have been educating myself and going through the motions and steps without ever being able to “receive”!! I thought I was a victim of “to much information” and that is why I never applied it to my life. I also began to think that I was just lazy; had the education but no ambition, even though it is a passion of mine to learn all that I can about health and nutrition.
Thank you so much for helping me understand that no matter what I learn or what my passions are, I need to step back into my feminine and learn to receive!! Wow, I feel like a wall has been lifted from my shoulders!!!!
Thank you!! I wish you all the blessings that nature has to offer!!!
Mary Lane’s weekend retreat has fed me on all levels. We had a full weekend of gathering wild, edible plants, learning about them, and eating delicious meals prepared with them. After learning about the nutritional and medicinal benefits of some of these plants and journeying to the spirits of these plants, I have gained a new respect for what they have to offer us and feel the need to honor them in a way I had never felt before. During the course of the weekend Mary lovingly taught us about the different aspects of the Divine Mother—the many ways she nurtures and loves us, and heals and empowers us as women who are learning and willing to claim our own power. We also had many light moments of laughter and play, especially while we were beautifying ourselves with Mary’s wildcrafted facial lotions, scrubs, and creams. This was a weekend of sharing, learning, laughing, and eating—what we as women from all walks of life need in order to nurture our hearts and souls. Mary was a master at initiating and allowing all of this to unfold for us.
“As my first women’s retreat, Mary Lane’s divine nourishment and sacredweekend has set the bar high for any that follow. I feel holy and completely nourished from the hiking and wildcrafting, the incredible meals we prepared and the communal time with women. Mary shares her wealth of knowledge in a relaxing and playful way. What an incredible introduction to cronehood!

I wanted to thank you all for the wonderful journey that I took with Mary Lane on Healing and Nourishing Feminine WIthin. It was a powerful wonderful experience and wanted to thank you all for your help. It made the course one that I will cherish in my heart from this time as well as the years to come.
“Mary’s book offers us a brilliantly conceived and richly layered compilation of the wisdom of the ages. Mary’s offering draws from her many years of study as well as from her own experience and direct communication with the Divine. Ranging from a profound explanation of the very forces of Creation to practical suggestions for embodying these forces in daily life, Mary’s book is a true guide for healing and restoring the Divine Feminine within us and in our world.”
Finally…..I am sitting in my room in Rome and using the extraordinary early awakenings to read your book in total…not just fragments allowed to me over the last few months. I am touched by the passion of your conviction and knowledge and opened to tears of recognition of dynamics long left without words. You have had some amazing journeys that I am thrilled to read about again in book form. It gives outline to a journey that often can be daunting as there is no map for this ride! However, you tell it with the grace of hindsight with all of the trials and glory, highs and lows that come with this human form with a desire and commitment to live a spiritual life. kudos and much success to you and healing for those who come to read your story. I will be happy to pass your website on to my list and make a recommendation for your book. Thank you so much for sending it …I truly appreciated the gift! Sending lots of love from my beloved italia!!
My Dear Mary,
I would like to thank you from the depths of my heart and the heights of my soul. Your book is a triumph and a wonder. When you first asked me to read your book…well, we know about that resistance! What I see now is that this book has shown me not only what my resistance is-the dance I have been doing around, around, around my shadow, my divine feminine, my self-the dance which needs to incorporate this part of myself-to understand, hold, nourish, love, accept, and integrate-to love and understand my entire self. To know that I have support in this journey has become very clear because of your willingness to write this book and share it with all of us. Thank you does not seem to be an adequate word; instead, what is adequate is the action to begin the journey.
With all my love and tremendous gratitude,
Mary is a wonderful cook, a plant spirit medicine practitioner, lover of nature, and world traveler. Her book is a mystical-made-physical journey into the depths of self, of body, and of spiritual connection. This long-awaited treasure holds such a simple key to satisfying a deep spiritual connection: nourishing ourselves body, mind, and spirit, as well connect with Mother Earth through the sacred act of nourishment.
Thank you so very much, Dianne Seale
I just have to express to you how much your book “Divine Nourishment” is touching my life. A dear friend gave it to me just before a trip to the ocean. I soaked it in with awe and wonder as I listened to the music of the sea and felt cradled by Mother Earth’s magic. Your deep wisdom has shed the most beautiful light on my spiritual path, that has truly ignited by being in nature. I’ve recently read Shonagh Home’s marvelous book ” Ix Chel Wisdom” and Drunvalo Melchizedek’s “Serpent of Light”, and your book illuminates these concepts further in such a profound and culminating way for me.
I just want to thank you from the heart for the incredible gifts you give our world! I will look forward to your newsletter tremendously. Specifically, I’d love your advice on adapting best to the changes in our world.
I’m starting to cook from your book and feeling so empowered about the feminine experience. Thank you for articulating so beautifully what we women go through and why. I’ve just read your blog too – it is beautiful!
with much gratitude and admiration,
PS: Thank you for your amazing wisdom, and thank you for sharing your shadow. So many of us feel rejected, separate, and that we don’t belong. This is one of my life stories. I’ve learned that this is the greatest gift in disguise. It has given me the power to be FREE, beyond convention, and beyond the limits we place in our world. Here’s to the incredible and unique gifts we all have to give when we are free! I love reading your work : )
