An experienced and insightful facilitator, Mary Mackenzie brings clarity, presence, transparency and depths of compassion to each person in every group for whom she works. She is skilled at helping people find their own inner strength and clarity, and then express what is most important to them, rather than what others might want to hear. She is a master at team building and problem-solving who gets to the very root of a problem and supports long-term resolution. And, she does this with grace, efficiency, and genuine caring for each person involved.
Underpinning Mary’s facilitation success is her spiritual depth, genuine curiosity, and years of training in Compassionate Communication, meditation, and many different spiritual practices. Mary believes passionately in people’s innate goodness and has a subtle way of drawing that goodness out of people and increasing the opportunity for mutual compassion. Many people say they simply feel safer when she’s in the room.
Mary offers a variety of facilitation processes that are customized to ensure relevance and success for the organization, team, or family she’s supporting.

Mary has a unique and extraordinary ability. I noticed after the first evening that she had given me the opportunity to choose new behaviors, more aligned with my deepest values. I feel more connected and loved as a result. Mary owns and models presence. She is grounded and clear in her communication. She is real. She teaches tools that assist us in remembering who we are and what we came here to share. Mary is a master teacher. I am so grateful to have worked with her.
My main perspective of Mary is that she is a person who ‘walks her talk.’ I think I have learned as much from watching how she teaches, coaches and facilitates individuals and groups, as I have from the specific exercises she teaches. And, I’ve learned a lot!
