Mary Stevenson’s life has had a strong spiritual focus since the age of 23 when she was taught to meditate at the Reno TM Center. She became a TM teacher on April 13, 1976, after six months of training in Europe. From the early 1970’s, Mary organized or helped run meditation centers around the country, including in Reno, Nevada; Austin, Texas; Silver Spring, Maryland; and Boulder, Colorado. She also spent four years in the spiritual community of Fairfield, Iowa. For many years, she regularly attended large world peace assemblies around the country to enjoy big group meditations with thousands of other TM practitioners from around the world.
She has special memories of her 18 years in Boulder, hiking in the beautiful Rocky Mountains with so many dear friends there.
Mary currently resides in Sedona, Arizona, where she enjoys attending yoga classes and being in Nature, hiking in the unique natural beauty of the Red Rock formations, and of course, her twice-daily meditation practice.
She feels blessed to have found her writing mentor, the famous Book Whisperer, Tom Bird, and to be supporting his work since February 4, 2015 as both his Executive Assistance and Retreat Preparation Coach. It is a real delight for Mary to help other blossoming authors prepare for this transformational experience, and get their books written in a weekend, like she did.
