About Marya2018-02-20T13:43:42+00:00

My mission is to assist in global awakening by acting as a catalyst to reconnect women with their divine spark. Using my intuitive skills, I guide women on the most transformational journey of embodying their essence and living an empowered and abundant life. My passion is also to support the evolution of intimate relationships into becoming the most fertile ground for lovers to grow and flower.

I AM MARYA NORELL

I am a spiritual midwife, a women’s group facilitator, a relationship coach, a tantric practitioner and a consciousness catalyst.

Since my twenties, I have been a passionate creator of personal growth programs that support people to heal, awaken and embody who they really are. In the past 18 years it has become my focus and mission to accompany women on the path of awakening into full flowering.

I have to admit that I am so in love with seeing people blossom into their true essence and I feel so lucky that I have found my dharma so early in life, to serve humanity in this way.

What brought me here was ignited by a profound healing crisis in my early childhood, that when I was 16, made me embark on a journey to heal myself through body-oriented therapy and meditation. This became the start of a life-long and still going on journey of discovering, learning, training, integrating, applying and giving on to other people.

At some point I was inspired to explore feminine spirituality, and at that time I couldn’t find any spiritual women circles. So I started creating them myself, and as I was exploring this new path with other women I learned to refine my skills and abilities.

I have learned from many different paths and traditions, traveling to all corners of the world. At a certain point, I was so fiercely engaged in the path of enlightenment and even lived in an ashram for a few years, doing whatever it took, to attain the liberation that I was looking for. After experiencing a shift in consciousness during one of my retreats, I still pushed myself so hard that my body became very sick and I had to slow down. In that time I had a hormonal burnout and I encountered the darkest spaces that even made me think of killing myself, as the suffering was so intense. It was also a healing journey as I met one of my deepest childhood traumas, facing the near-death experience of my mother.

From that life-changing and healing experience, I have redirected my path towards a much more loving approach, cultivating self-love and self-appreciation in every moment. I have become more gentle with myself and I make sure that I take care of myself in the very best way possible on a daily base.

I am transmitting a life of experiences that I have polished for all these years and it is my passion to be part of people’s awakening journeys and bringing spirituality into an everyday life. I am also more devoted than ever before, to support women to blossom in all areas of their lives. In 2016 I birthed a new online academy called Blossoming Women, so that more women can receive and benefit from the programs I have developed.

I recently moved to the Netherlands from the South of France together with my beloved Elie, who is a musician and sound healer. Together with him I lead Living Intimacy for Lovers, retreats for people who want to awaken through intimate relationships. I am originally from Sweden and the mother of a grown-up son.

About my spiritual path and the main inspirations on the journey to become who I am today:

My spiritual quest started at age 16 when I was initiated into Transcendental Meditation and even though I didn’t pursue very long with sitting 20 minutes 2 times daily repeating a mantra, it still had a lasting imprint on my life. My interest in massage and body therapy led me to study as a physiotherapist as well as taking the body-psychotherapeutic courses of Dr Bengt Stern. At that time my mother, who had come out of a burnout thanks to a German massage technique, went from businesswoman to starting a New Age center, where I met the cream of clairvoyant and channeling people from all over the world.

In those years I also fully immersed myself in the world of the mystic Osho and even lived in a couple of Osho communities. I loved the synthesis of meditation, therapy and embodiment that Osho brought and in his ashram in Poona was also where I took the dance meditation training and several other healing modalities, like Tibetan Pulsing Healing. It was also Osho that introduced me to the path of Tantra, the School of Mysticism where I really felt at home, as well as being part of the Co-dependency trainings with Krishnananda.

Then I heard of the female spiritual teacher ShantiMayi by another great inspiration, spiritual teacher Nukunu Larsen, which led me into the path of enlightenment. After my spiritual healing crisis, I met Mariet Wijnen and her Inner Management training that brought me into a very practical everyday spirituality, where you become your own best caretaker. At that time, I also deepened my training in chock & trauma with Krishananda and Amana.

My interest in Tantra has led me to meet many amazing teachers, like David Deida and Barbara Carellas, whose first Urban Tantra training I was part of. My deepest recognition and meeting has been and still is with Pema from Wildtantra.

Shamanic body-dearmoring is also one of those milestones, as well as the teachings from Healing Tao by Mantak Chia.

The last years I have, through the meetings with spiritual teacher Matt Kahn, turned to a more heart-centered spirituality, especially designed for energetically sensitive souls.

There are so many more inspirations that are not mentioned here, but there is one more person deeply influencing my spiritual journey, the angel that I have at my side, traveling the Path of the Beloved together with me and making sure that I am loved more than I have ever been before, my Beloved Elie.
