Maria is a seasoned healer of body, mind and spirit. Having started on her healing path as a registered nurse, she has since practiced psychotherapy, massage and shamanism. Maria’s love of travel was sparked with a trip to Thailand in her early adult life, and she has taken every opportunity to travel ever since. Her unique blend of skills, mastery of her arts and attentive companionship are a welcome addition to Traveller’s Joy tours. When not providing warm and creative support on TJ tours, Maria offers her skills under the banner of Bluefeather in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia.

“The blue feather that roots my practice is connected with both body and spirit, a symbol of the South direction, warmth, growth, creativity and trust in the Divine to bring one’s true self into fruition.”
