About Marnie

I raise my hands to the Quw’utsun First Nation and their ancestors, on whose traditional and unceded land I live and work.

I’m a descendent of early settler colonialists from Gaelic, Nordic and Germanic lineages, whose traditional cultures, languages, relationships to land, medicines and life stories were largely lost to my family. The learning and living of decolonization, reconciliation and anti-oppression demonstrated to me by Indigenous Peoples, Black and Peoples of Colour and their allies, is a heart-commitment underlying my work.

Integral to this learning and living for me has been recognizing and uprooting in myself stories of separation – e.g. body separated from mind and heart, physical from spiritual; and hierarchies of race,
class, gender, humans over the Earth. Stories that promote harm, injustice, fear, and misuse of power.

I want to collaborate with others to call forward our ancient, earthly and cosmic stories, and co-create new ones for healing, transformation, reciprocity, kinship. Stories that open our sense of magic and beauty, that tell of the multidimensional and sacred nature of life. Stories that inspire us to build safer, sustainable, harmonious and loving social systems, which celebrate diversity and culture. Stories which invoke our reason for being, and guide us to live and die well.

Over the past 20 years I’ve trained in hospital-based professional spiritual care (formerly “chaplaincy”), shiatsu, reiki, therapeutic touch, gestalt and transpersonal psychotherapy, trauma-recovery, anti-racism
and cultural safety, psychedelic assisted therapy, craniosacral therapy, and since 2019, plant spirit medicine and spirit guide collaboration with Megan Waddy. I weave these ways together using my hands, intuition, and dialogue with you, tracking and supporting your inner healing intelligence to bring good stories into embodiment.
