How I Have Helped

Here is what my Community is saying

Working with Mary has been an experience of a lifetime! She is one of the most inspiring and generous people I've ever met. She has helped me to awaken parts of my inner creative true self that transformed into confidence, healing, and a desire to help others. She helps remind me that anything is possible! She teaches from the heart and I am truly touched by the stories she shares, the wisdom she offers and the joy she brings to the classroom and to the world.

The first time I met Mary, I was immediately drawn to her energetic charisma and genuine passion for creating art and its impact on patients. Since then, she has mentored and inspired me in so many ways.

I admire her tenacity and ability to achieve whatever she sets her mind to.  She has actualized such a profound breadth and depth of achievements. She is the most fearless and successful woman I know.

If she gets interested in a cause, she sets a goal to contribute and achieves it. Where her impact has been most profound and tireless is her many contributions to improving the tools and practices to heal and integrate the mind, body and spiritual connection.  She’s truly one of the world’s leaders and innovators in this field.

Mary has also inspired me with her genuine desire to deeply connect with everyone around her and to leave a ray of hope through impactful education and kind deeds wherever her travels take her. There truly is just something about Mary. When you meet her…you never forget her.

I have loved learning from Mary Rockwood Lane! She has inspired me to look at myself and learn new ways to cope with stress in healthy creative ways. I learned a lot about myself and made many friends in her class. Dr. Lane gave me tools to express my stress in creative ways. I will always be thankful for finding her class to inspire my creativity.

Stepping into art and healing for me was like stepping into sacred space and time.  I felt excited and joyful to do the process each week.

Mary is one of the most unique and honest individuals I have ever met. Not only is she creative, wise, caring and humble, she is also fun, adventurous and thinks out of the box!

We have spent two whole weeks with Mary as she attended a residential immersion we offered on Peacebuilding and she not only gives of her gifts but drinks in new thoughts and ideas, but applies them as well.

This project opened my eyes to my spirituality.  I had lost spirit and faith in God when I lost my family.  Now it has been returned to me.

Mary's Healing with the Arts class gave me the opportunity to connect with a deeper part of myself; to explore my love for writing and especially my love for life. It was a pleasure and an honor to be taught by such an inspiring and open person. I am truly grateful to have been involved in the course and I hope that by sharing my story other friends might feel empowered to embark on their own journeys of self-expression and healing.
