Trainer I Mentor I Visionary

International Best Selling Author

"I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my Soul."
~ Rumi

I was born in Portugal in 1963.

I am a child of Fascism and a daughter of the Revolution.


I have an insatiable desire to feel, create and share Beauty.

That is my sustenance.

Born Maria da Piedade, which translates into Mary of Mercy, I sailed the seven seas
and moved to America where I have been crafting a variety of artistic offerings.


These offerings where created with the intention to catapult people to live more authentic and graceful lives.

I am a teacher of inter-connectedness, providing others with missing pieces
(energetic or physical) to propel them forward


I focus on bringing very different, yet integrated systems together to create harmony, balance and deep transformation.  
I have been gifted with a keen intuition. My teaching style is direct, dissecting and not suitable for the faint of heart.  


Be ready for deep, lasting transformation which demands a willingness
to acknowledge what has been lurking in the shadow
and holding you back.

My deepest desire is to be a living example and create a safe, sacred space for you to discover the most glorious and magnificent version of yourself.


I create beautiful "Immersive Sacred Spaces" where my transformative offerings blossom. 


I look forward to meeting you at one of my events.


All I can do is be me. Whoever that is.

~ Bob Dylan
