“Mary is a gifted healer, a creative soul living in the moment affecting the world and her clients by her being-ness alone. Anyone who works with her will be blessed, touched and changed from the inside out.
Her warm compassionate presence, along with her depth, insight and fearlessness to travel deep within the psyche/soul/spirit is untouchable-- within only two months of seeing Mary for inner work, I released deep hidden anxiety from my childhood that I was unable to do with past therapist/healers. I have never worked with someone with whom I have felt so safe and present. Thanks to Mary's gentle and spirited guidance, I also unlocked an ocean of creativity.”
Mary works with the inner child in the most loving,
compassionate, non threatening and uplifting way. After years of mainstream therapy, her particular inner child work penetrated and healed me in the deepest of ways and became a doorway for an even more profound healing in my life.
Instead of focusing on other people and their affect on my life, she always brought my struggles back to me and helped me take responsibility for my OWN pattern that was attracting such toxicities.
Magically, my outer world became more peaceful and the toxic people in my life started effortlessly drifting away.
I found Mary from a reading I had with an intuitive who had suggested that I do some inner child work to unleash the untapped energy and power I have been storing…but it being time to be my ALL, it was time to do the work. I took this suggestion and began ‘google-ing’ this person who specializes in inner child work, thinking they would be in Portland, Oregon where I live. Surprise! Up pops her website, which totally speaks to me, but she is in California. Ok…so I emailed my contact info and within hours she had responded and we were setting up our first phone session. The moment I heard her voice, that of an angel, soft and in a clear higher pitch there was no question if she was the right person. We had a few phone sessions and then I had the opportunity to attend a seminar in Los Angeles which opened the door with doing a couple of sessions within her grace.
As I have shared my way of being with her so she knew our soul session was to be that of an adventure…for that is how I move and heal. Mary describes to me that it is different with every person…how the sessions unfold. As we are each unique individuals with different ways of being touched and inspired, she goes right to your place…where and how you can connect at the deepest level and all in your perfect time.
So we jump into her car…and she says I am not quite sure where we will end up, but I know we are to head north along the coast. I love it, and also know that we are heading to the right place. We end up at a beautiful little town and head to the beach. Our first interaction is with a homeless man. We deemed him the gatekeeper as our exchange was so precious. From there we meandered along the beach\for a bit…one of my favorite places on earth to be. Sun shining and blessing this time.
Then Mary guides me to these salt pools and the enchanted beach forest to go deeper within. We have a ritual before crossing a bridge over the sacred salt pools, where I release some things I had prepared earlier. As we finished she followed me, as if becoming my shadow, so connected. I play and wind my way as I feel called through the Eucalyptus trees and see grasses…butterflies, dragonflies, birds, dogs, you name it, it was there. A very magical place. Our final destination was a setting so incredible…a stretch of beach very beautiful. From here…I took off. I knew what I needed to do. Mary sat back, as if the strong parent, holding space for now the ritual I performed and wrote myself. It was so very powerful, simple and profound.
Mary’s work and way is so tailored to each person. There is only the one perfect formula to nurture each child, and by nature it is within us…Mary has the gift of this perfect formula…YOU. Thank you Mary for sharing your soul in our sessions together!!
There have been years of sitting on a couch or chair and digging into my story with a therapist to find the answers. It helped some to have a sympathetic ear and some guidance. There have been years where I have prayed and sought my answers through my faith. It too has been a huge strength to me then and now. But, I still couldn't find the little girl who had been ignored all these years. I couldn't hear her voice. I didn't know she had something to say to me. By a chance that is only guided through the strange synchronicities of life, I met a woman who helped me find the voice of that child who has been waiting so long to tell me her wish list. Mary has spent a lifetime finding a way for her own voice to be heard. It is her life's work now to help reclaim the lost voices of our past childhoods.
I write this testimonial as way of offering hope to those suffering and looking for help, I find it hard to know how to describe Mary. Mary Elizabeth Hoffman is by far the most enlightened and gifted healer I have ever met. I have worked with many different healers throughout my journey here, but Mary is in a league of her own. She works effortlessly between the worlds to help us heal our core issues. She works with the most compassion and loving light that I have ever seen or felt. She has got to be an angel sent from heaven to heal all that come into contact with her. She leads, guides, and nurtures you while helping you to find and reconnect to your true essence.
I have been having heart problems for three years now and my quality of life has declined dramatically over the last couple of years. Being a light worker myself, I know how important it is to heal the past in order to maintain good health. After working on myself, and with many different healers over the last couple years, I still was unable to get to the core issues blocking and causing these heart problems. After praying and setting the intention to heal completely, I did an internet search for inner child work and found Mary.
Mary has safely and gently helped me to bring up and release childhood issues that were completely blocked out as a child because they were just too traumatic to remember. With her loving and gentle approach to healing, I felt completely safe and protected while bringing these issues up to the surface for healing. As we continue to work with my inner child, my health continues to improve daily. I am so grateful that the universe has put Mary in my life.

Sweet Mary is a gifted light worker, intuitive healer, shamanic healer, inner child supporter…a Master at these and other spiritual healing modalities. The gift that she shares so freely and that I most appreciate, is her dedication to maintaining her loving physical vibration. This allows her to be the “hollow bone” through which spirit can work miracles in this dimension. Recently I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and was undergoing radiation therapy. The therapy was taxing my body. I felt old, tired, and afraid. When I informed Mary about this dilemma she, as always, felt into the illness and invited me to visit her. We spent the first days visiting nature and spiritual sites, talking, laughing, living and enjoying the beauty of Southern California.
On the third day, during our morning meditation she asked me to lie down on my back. Mary was now receiving guidance from spirit as to what needed to be done. In a trance state Mary silently performed (although she would say she did nothing but allow spirit to flow through her) a series of healings on me which included shamanic ceremony, crystal work, healing with fire, light, love and energy work.
She then guided me as I connected with the cancer. Mary helped me through a series of self healing exercises. We worked not only on the prostate, but on my entire body, mind, and spirit.
After the releasing of the toxins she began tracking the CAUSE of the cancer. With just a few questions Mary guided me in to remember the origins of the anger that I carry and frequently express. She discovered my Father’s anger and that when I was very young I was afraid of him and considered him to be a mean, scary, and angry man. With this information, Mary intuited that I had embodied that anger, had become that. She later explained that when we judge, project and label others that over time we become that, embody it. As we think, so we become. She explained that my Father had probably also embodied anger from his Father. She helped me connect to my Father's energy (he is deceased) and to feel the truth of who he is. I felt so much love it was as if we were both getting free. I realized that he did not want me to carry this pain of his any longer. We had a re-union.
Next we went outside and worked on releasing this faulty perception. Using a shamanic “Illumination” like process, one very specific quartz crystal, and light, Mary helped me to purge my anger and my resentment for my Dad. I felt free. My energy had returned. I felt better physically than I had prior to the diagnosis.
I returned home. On the following Tuesday I had a discussion with my doctor and asked him: “How do we know that the cancer isn’t already cured.” “I feel great!” He said there was no way of knowing until my next PSA test which would take place 3 months after completion of my treatment. Today I feel healed and youthful. I’m exercising and eating nutritional foods. My mind is clear. I am re-membering.
Before meeting Mary, I walked down many avenues of healing trying to find relief for my chronic pain of depression. First there was therapy, then body work, EMDR, yoga, Pranic healing, psychic readings, angel cards, and of course books like the Law of Attraction, The Mastery of Love, and other books with messages about how to heal and live a full life. The problem was, I still felt miserable most of the time. I found very temporary relief from the sense that doom was my destiny and life was always going to be a struggle. I felt like an inherently bad person for I could not seem to get a grip, no matter how much I tried to project happiness. Mary's work has taken me to the source of these triggers. The dialogue of asking questions to my inner child and hearing her responses has a power in it akin to magic. I WANT EVERYONE to know how powerful this work is, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE BEEN TRYING SO HARD BUT ARE STILL STUCK. Thank You Mary! Your gift has changed my life.
When I first contacted Mary I thought I was too broken to be mended. But mended I am with Marys unconditional guidance and love. Stuff that came up that was painful and the anxiety that was taking over my life has gone. If it does rear its ugly head I now know what tools to use so that it no longer sends me into a panic. I, like others have used other therapies that have been of value but have not mended me. My inner neglected, bruised and forgotten child has been noticed and honoured and healed. She is alive and kicking and doing very well thank you. Through Mary’s magical presence, empathetic nature, and emotional support I have come face to face with the pain that has hurt me for so long. I no longer ache. I no longer feel on edge. I no longer want to be invisible. I am enjoying my life, my family and my work. I laugh more and live in the moment. I can find joy in little things that I would never have noticed before as I was so wrapped up in my pain. My thinking has changed, as has my attitude to life. It’s as if the shadow of doubt that was following me all my life has vanished and now I can see and feel the warmth of the sun and see and feel the real beauty of this world.. I am healing and it is wonderful . I am lighter, and not clouded by worry and angst that was with me most of my life. My life is good and I owe that to Mary. She really is a gift sent from heaven. I am so lucky to have found you Mary. Thank you.

The work initially began after realizing that I had some unfinished work to be done. I was feeling limited, restricted and suffering from my expectations of others. I needed to connect with my own inner child. In just a few months I began to see myself as free. To see myself as someone who doesn’t believe in limits and wants to share herself with the world. This journey has been intriguing as I begin to see myself in a new light. I came to understand how hurt I was and why I became angry and agitated so easily. Now those wounds are healed, they no longer need my attention. Now I understand that my unhappiness is not stemming from the outside but somewhere deep within. What started as an inner journey to find happiness turned to one of growing towards enlightenment as I began remembering who I truly am.
