Mary Plaza is the enchanting mystic, and pragmatic teacher of energy that the world has been waiting for. Her teachings of the quantum field combine her knowledge from nearly three decades of healing work with shamanism practices from around the world and her unique ability to see energy. From business strategizing and parenting, to relationships and healing, she addresses the scope of human experience to make the intangible tangible. Mary brings the world of energy—the unseen into view as she offers a bridge that empowers our lives. She is a conduit for healing giving you the tools to birth your individual dream. As a 5th generation Montana ranch kid, Mary grew up breaking horses, skinning beaver, wrangling buffalo and driving tractors. From an early age she demonstrated an aptitude for leadership. By the time she was 16, she had become the foreman of a ranch crew, served on the local ski patrol and was an ambulance rider. Her grandfather taught her that not only could a girl break horses and skin beaver but also that she could probably do it better than boys. He instilled in her the message "If we take care of Mother Earth - she will take care of us”.
This ranch girl continued her unconventional life eventually finding her passion in structural engineering and attaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering. She went on to supervise railroad bridge construction, work at a naval shipyard, and become a transportation planner for the Forest Service. After getting married and having children, she settled down as a structural design engineer and construction inspector.
A husband, children, a nice home and two cars in the garage should have been happily ever after. However, it became an invisible prison when western medicine failed to heal her neck of a “permanent” injury. This lead her on a journey toward healing her own body through alternative means, opening her to the world of energetic healing.
Mary acquired certification in craniosacral therapy and went on to work with hundreds of clients ranging from infants to the dying, to those awakening spiritually and war veterans. She assisted with craniosacral classes at Bastyr University and developed a technique for releasing the cranial plates in the head by releasing the sutures (intersection points of the cranial bones). She developed this technique by applying structural engineering principles to the body. Mary worked with the late Dr. Nancy Soliven, MD, DC to expand craniosacral therapy techniques and assisted with developing advanced emotional dialoguing techniques. Her healing practices were later expanded by initiations into Huna, Tantra and other Shamanistic lineages.
Alongside her healing work, Mary also became a corporate consultant. Her corporate experiences ranged from consulting for litigations, overhauling computer systems, establishing point of sale systems to creating procedures to optimize businesses functions. She has dealt with everything from analyzing factory production issues to rewriting job descriptions and setting up financial management systems. Mary’s seamless application of spirituality to a corporate environment earned her the nickname “The Corporate Shaman”. Prioritizing independence and creativity over obedience and memorization, Mary homeschooled her children and taught them to meditate and practice telepathy from a young age. Their childhoods were spent basking in the wonders of the rural mountains of Montana as a way to intrinsically know their connection to Mother Earth.
After a close friend’s call for help Mary began treating war veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. This shift completely changed the direction of Mary’s work. Fascinated with the complexity of war veterans and the failure to effectively treat their mental outlook by most western medical practitioners, Mary began treating them with craniosacral therapy. Later, as the wife of a combat veteran, she participated in programs for caretakers of disabled veterans through the United States Department of Veterans Affairs and the Wounded Warrior Project. She became an on the ground resource for veterans, their wives and children offering volunteer phone support twenty-four hours a day.
The mission to assist in cultivating a peaceful humanity that lives in harmony with Mother Earth drives Mary’s work. Mary offers you some of the most powerful energetic tools on the planet for you to be able to birth your dreams and for us all to birth the energy of compassion on our planet. Mary lives with her husband Pete and their dog Ruger in the rugged rocky mountains of Montana.
