Twenty-five years ago, my husband Jerry and I moved to Lebanon, Maine. We moved here with
two children -- adding two more to the family right away. As the children grew, I became involved
with school, sports and dance classes. Eventually I began writing for Foster's Daily Democrat
and the Sanford News as the Lebanon Correspondent, which I continued for several years
before going to work full time at the local newspaper.
Eventually, and with the encouragement of my husband, the shop officially opened its doors on
Sept. 15, 2004. It has continued to grow and expand steadily ever since. I have been fortunate to be
a student in many of the classes offered at the shop by the experienced teachers who assist me here.
I have participated in many herbal training events including herbal tinctures and extracts and
incorporated this wisdom into my Irish/Polish heritage of working with herbs and herbal remedies.
With my family's encouragement, and the encouragement of my fellow healers and practitioners,
I offer private ear candling sessions; Shamballa and Reiki Energy Healing; and Psychic Intuitive
Card Readings (since 2002). I am a Reiki Master and Practitioner, receiving my certification from
Gregory Phillips (2007); and a Shamballa Multi-Dimensional Healer, receiving certification from Holly Brown,
Certified Master Teacher, and the Shamballa School of Esoteric Sciences (2006). Certification of Ear Candling
was received by C. Bashaw, RN and Senior Herbalist. In 2009, I was ordained as a minister of the
Universal Light Church and was included as a contributor in the new book "Out of the Broom Closet: 50 True
Stories of Witches Who Found and Embraced the Craft". Our home has also been included in the book "Haunted York
County: Mystery and Lore from Maine's Oldest Towns" by Roxie J. Zwicker.
CMH is an active participant in fund-raising for several animal organizations throughout the United States. For many
years, Mary donated her time and services to a local wolf sanctuary in Maine with the creation and upkeep of the
sanctuary website. Over the years, CMH has raised a considerable amount of money for other non-profit agencies
including Safe Haven Humane Society of Wells, Maine, and Another Chance Animal Rescue of North Berwick, Maine.
Additionally, CMH is pleased to offer donations to the Loki Clan Wolf Refuge of North Conway, New Hampshire;
Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary of Ramah, New Mexico; Wolf Hollow of Ipswich, Massachusetts; and Shy Wolf Sanctuary
of Naples, Florida, in support of their work with the wolves and educational programs.
CMH is also a proud supporter for Toys for Tots (Lebanon) and the MSAD60 Backpack Program to feed hungry
children in our local school systems.
