RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT WORK

 

As a woman of Spirit, Maria has brought great compassion and understanding to the lives of many who have been supported by her strength and wisdom. Her healing work over the past twenty five years together with her many years of community service on numerous committees and boards, is testament of her love of people and her passion for making this world a better place.

Her focus on imporving the wellbeing of community is based on the science of teaching stress reduction through mindful meditation. Her training of educators, professionals and the community through The Savant Mindful Meditation Program : deceases stress, tension, anxiety, calms the mind, opens pathways in the brain and connects participants, to inner peace.

Maria’s creation of a beautiful labyrinth pathway is an artistic tool through which Walking Meditation is taught. As participants follow the path of the labyrinth, they are led into a place of deep peace. Maria’s three programmes offer a simple, direct and profound way in which to locate inner peace.
