Wow! Mary, your story & the way in which you express the link between teaching Pilates & the subconscious was so inspiring. I too am an intuitive, and you put into words what I could not. Now, when helping people to get in touch with their bodies, I will always think of your wise words.
Many thanks to Kristi, for providing us with such an interesting and muti-faceted web site!
Thank you for sharing such a wonderful woman, Mary Bowen with us! As a Cognitive Psychologist, I learned how to appreciate the Real connection between the psyche and Pilates. I'm so happy that I've embarked on this path of Pilates,because I feel amazing each time I do it. What a down to earth and true legacy.
Amazing and so deep! An unexpected treat on this website. I'm constantly inspired by the wonderful content you provide here at Pilates Anytime!
Wow! Mary! What a life! Thank you for sharing your experience and giving us this wisdom that came to you as an intuitive. In my time as a teacher, I have been assigned or through random circumstance ended up teaching people that were considered unteachable or difficult and accepted each one like a gift. Some have stayed and are still with me after years of slowly filling in the blanks in their body/conciousness. I'm thankful that I've been able to help them and through the process they've helped me so much! Mary, your word ring so true: we are all one and acceptance and love are all we really need to learn and grow whereas without each other we may have withered away. I often wonder how I can be of more impact in the world but I'm beginning to realize that it all starts with helping just one at a time.
Thank you, Sky, and each one who has commented. I wish I could know each one of you in person. As I sense it, we grow into our own wisdom through our experiences in life and the person we were born as. Those of us who have to go deep were probably born to do just that. We can come "upon ourselves" or "into ourselves" as we live and work along. Pilates has been, still is and will always be a good partner to "help us happen" in the process of making Pilates our own...as we "help each one we can." Mary Bowen
