It would be impossible for me to fully describe the positive impact that Rosemary has had on my life over the last four years. What I can say for sure is that I now approach life with so much more awareness than before that I often wonder if I had even been living at all. Over the course of my awareness therapy, it seemed as if the world was suddenly moving in slow motion and I was now armed with the ability to experience it all…all the while making real time aware decisions. Through that one mental change, Rosemary helped me to become a person who takes charge of his life instead of one who merely reacts to events. Today, I am facing terminal cancer. I have difficulty breathing and carry an enormous pain daily. Yet I continue to live with personal dignity and gratitude, aware of every moment of life, and never its victim. I owe so much of this to Rosemary and her ability to help others find their own voices within.
I can sincerely state that meeting and working with Rosemary for almost two years has definitely changed my life for the better. She helped me to realize my full potential in all aspects of my life. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a wonderful navigator to help find their way in this crazy world. In fact I already have. The benefits of her wisdom and compassion are endless. I can’t imagine my life without her now!

Over a year ago, I couldn’t see my truth or awareness of my full potential. I couldn’t believe I deserved unconditional happiness. I certainly couldn’t display any confidence in myself to pursue my destined journey defined with purpose and meaning.
With her constructive energy, patience, gentleness and kindness, Rosemary has guided me to listen to my inner voice, acknowledge how my past has imprinted my present actions, but still continue to love, dissolve resentments, understand and forgive others, forgive myself and let go of my pain, but not let go of my lesson. She has reinforced that we can all make a difference in this world one small step at a time, as we deserve to preserve the beauty that exists.
Rosemary is not only my mentor and role model, she is my inspiration! She has helped me learn how to bring my heart’s truest desires to life. So, I can hopefully be defined by my actions in choosing greater love and fear only that I can no longer deliver it. Love that bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things, always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres.
“Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after another.” – Walter Elliot
Upon graduating from High School I reflected back on my life and all of my choices. I just want to say that what Rosemary did for me changed my life for the better. Because of her influence I made the decisions that turned me into a better person. I thank her so much as I head off to college.

The Holistic Center for Soulful Living has transformed my life in ways beyond comprehension. I came to the center with my 6 year old daughter to help us recover from a turbulent home life. I was beaten down and completely numb to life. Rosemary has changed my perspective and is helping me shift my way of thinking. I am discovering that I do have goals and dreams. My daughter came fearful and overwhelmed and confused. Mary helped my daughter express herself with words and is helping her see she is a valuable person. She has also provided my daughter with self comforting and calming techniques that she uses everyday. I receive reiki from Mary and I have reached the most amazing and unexpected awareness of my true authentic self. It has been two years and I am learning to live a life with purpose and I choose how I experience every precious moment. I have come into the fullness of who I am and my daughter has begun her journey at an early age and has already transformed and become a beautiful spirit with self awareness. We are receiving gifts and blessings we never imagined possible. Thank you Rosemary, Mary, and Alissa for giving us the gift of truly soulful life!
