Why Dare to Self Care?

Dare to Self Care came into being from my deep desire to heal myself and share the healing.  Many People are over loaded and overworked to the point of breaking down.        

I have been there.

Mary Sullivan  worked for over 20 years in the chemical industry as a chemist, engineer, manager and director. My job disappeared when the company was sold.  I lost my purpose and had a big hole in my identity.

In early 2000 I began an odyssey of change and learning. I immersed myself in the study and practice of yoga, and became a yoga teacher in 2005. I began to study Ayurveda, and yoga therapy. I became a certified yoga therapist and an Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist. During this whole period.  I struggled with excess weight, emotional highs and lows, inflammation and injury.

I added nature walks, reiki, meditation, gardening, herbs, food preparation and cooking to learn to heal and take care of myself. This learning escalated as I was diagnosed with a Lyme disease with autoimmune and nervous system involvement.  I lost 135 pounds as I learned to take care of myself in a very active way.  I have new respect for impact that consistent care is having on my life and health.
