Have you ever felt a deep ache for home? This longing is not for a physical space but for a journey to your true self. It may be experienced as a growing dissatisfaction with your life or a hunger for authentic connection. Maybe the pieces no longer seem to fit. 

Chrysalis Body/Mind provides transpersonal  growth opportunities including: 

  • Individual, heart-centered therapy
  • Yoga classes in the Phoenix Rising tradition
  • SoulCollage(R) 
  • Workshops/retreats on a variety of topics. 

Merry's focus is on facilitating life’s rights of passage and on empowering people to engage in their own inner healing.  My somatic approach has been especially helpful to people who have experienced trauma or who are struggling with eating disorders. I enjoy guiding individuals, groups, and classes in exploring  opportunities for inner growth. 

Chrysalis (definition)- a safe but temporary abode where transformation can occur.
