Mary came to the conscious living movement from a career in international development. Her strong passions for humanitarian work and sustainable development involved her in programs that built economic stability and addressed environmental concerns throughout the Western Hemisphere. While in the economic and political arenas, she became aware of the possible paradigm shift and continued to work with the consciousness community and futurists.
Mary became a massage therapist, Reiki Master, yoga instructor and minister; shifting her full time from the social-political arena to the healing arts. She helps individuals recognize their intuitive gifts and maintain their focus on positive progress. She now embodies the shift and embraces the potentials and those around her increase environmental stewardship and spiritual growth.
Greg came from a career in facilities management and carpentry. He has many artistic talents and has an uncanny touch of design and feng shui, attributing his skills to his mother's artistic influence. Coming from a small Indiana town where craftsmanship and friendliness is revered, Greg combines a gentle eye with great practical application of his vision. Just seeing him change the products and displays in the store or following the seasonal changes in the garden is marvelous. He is like a quiet monk in the store and regularly lends a compassionate ear to visitors.
