“Mari is completely authentic and brings alive the Celtic Wheel in a way that I don't believe anyone else would achieve. The course itself shows you another way to live in this world, in tune with the seasons and shows you how you can have seasons within seasons. I wasn't expecting the sense of belonging and kinship that I found and it is life changing to belong to such a widely spread group of wonderful female wisdom holders across the world”
