School of Mystical Embodiment
Sacred Sound, Movement & Rituals for women; facilitator training
This facilitator training is designed for women from all walks of life. It will help you develop an intimate relationship with the realms of divine frequencies & sacred movement.
Through the power of rituals, clear intention, sound/voice attunement, kīrtan (call & response mantra chanting), body awareness, yogic practices, meditation, dance, music, journaling, arts, earthing, & sharing circles, you will develop tools to help women discover the healing power of their own voice, as well as the natural wisdom of their own body, mind & spirit.
You will also develop ways to help them dive into the infinite space of their creative Self. This is an empowerment journey; a call to bring out the wild, wise & mystical woman within each of us. It is an invitation to gather as sisters & learn from each other in a safe, supportive, uplifting & respectful way.
108 hours of apprenticeship

"Each woman has potential access to Rio Abajo Rio, this river beneath the river. She arrives there through deep meditation, dance, writing, painting, prayer making, singing, drumming, active imagination, or any activity which requires an intense altered consciousness. A woman arrives in this world-between-worlds through yearning and by seeking something she can see just out of the corner of her eye. She arrives there by deeply creative acts, through intentional solitude, and by practice of any of the arts."

"Beautiful and wondrous experience with strong grounded support and safety. Absolutely heart opening and warming. Life expanding. I recommend this to anyone looking for: community connection, to heal and grow, to learn about spiritual and mystic study of sound and movement and creating ritual about this to enrich and support their life’s work. Genuine, authentic and sincere offering from excellent teachers with loads of additional resources provided and follow up support for practice. I’ve taken many courses of this nature and nothing has taken me so deeply with a group that grew so much love together. A gifted facilitator to hold such space! Don’t hesitate!"
“Over the last 12 years, I have taken so many teacher trainings, meditation retreats, soulful journeys, healing modalities and NOTHING compares to the bliss and transformation I experienced during this training. I am so grateful for the support, sisterhood, love and many gifts I have received from this training. Maryz, I cannot thank you enough for the love you’ve poured into creating the manual and the wisdom and inspiration of your teaching. From the bottom of my heart and depth of my soul, thank you!
"I have taken many personal growth trainings over the last 45 years, and this experience was unique. Maryz has generously poured all her love, knowledge and wisdom into the formation of this program that allows you to embody your own leadership style, discover your voice, and build your confidence in leading workshop for others, and its great fun!"
" What a deep dive into who you really are, surrounded by a sisterhood of love and support. I am forever grateful for this transformative magical journey and for the positive echoes it will continue to have. Words fall short of my heartfelt appreciation for all the beauty this training has invited into my life.”
“The most amazing life changing training, it helped me align with myself in a way that I’ve never experience before, it awakens parts of me that had been asleep for a long time and thought never would; sensuality, sisterhood, empowerment, self love was my fav.
“This course was nothing short of life-changing. It opened me to my true self. The tools I learned are so valuable but what I cherish most is my new found sense of connection, to myself, my sisters & the Divine.”
-Mary Ellen Greenwood
"This course was filled with moments of bliss, welcome challenges, and transformation. Maryz is a truly authentic, passionate and compassionate guide on a journey of self discovery and revelation."
"Thank you Maryz for developing the sacred sound, movement & rituals facilitator training. It is everything and more than I ever hoped it would be. So empowering, so nourishing, so loving. And all your teachings/sharing's come straight from the heart. Thank you for sharing so lovingly all your wisdom, all your jewels, all your pearls. The ripple has begun, empowering many, many more women to come."
" This training for women came in a very important time in my life. The crone years for women can be a time when doors can feel like closing, and a time when a woman can go too much into herself. This course helped me blossom into this new phase of my life with grace and power."
"This training has been a powerful, transformative medicine for my Soul. It isn't just a course or training - it is an experience of deep transformative value that defies words or explanation. My cup is now full to overflowing with inspiration and love to share with the world. Maryz is a true healer and the soothing, nurturing balm of her presence has imprinted my life and opened me to profound insight, magic and unconditional love on a deeper level. A gift of a life time!"
"As my first real venture into the sacred and spiritual realm, any trepidation I may have initially felt, quickly dissipated under the kind, loving and wise guidance of Maryz. In this very in-depth, beautifully executed course, delivered with more love and joy than I thought possible, I learned how to rekindle my own inner light, my own sacredness, and my own power. The body of work covered in this course is both vast and invaluable to both the individual on a healing journey, as well as for any other practitioner of the healing arts. Learning and understanding these sacred practices, sounds and rituals, I now use them as part of my “spiritual toolbelt”, and haven woven them into the fabric of my life….to find my authentic voice, and stand proud for what I believe in. Mostly, I learned how to reconnect to myself, to others, and to the divinity both within and without. This training is without equal and I am so blessed to have been a part of it."
"When I began this training, I was at a low point personally (lots going on) and professionally (uninspired by my yoga classes and women’s gatherings). By the end of the training, I was completely revived. The experiences, practices, teachings and sisterhood that I received is more than I could have ever hoped for. I am so grateful to Maryz for creating this space for personal and professional growth."
"Maryz is the most loving, talented, intentional facilitator I have ever had the honor of sharing time, space and energy with. The curriculum, the experiential learning, the connection created with my fellow Queens went Far Beyond any of my expectations or previous experiences. I am incredibly honored and humbled by the vast amount of time, love, thoughts and energy that went into every single experience Maryz cultivated and shared with us throughout the program."
"This training is nourishing and a real treat to anybody wanting to dive into themselves and learn to be open and accepting of whatever comes. It is beyond words. It is a real deal whole experience."
