Retreat Guide














Mary Jane Houge

Facilitator, Practitioner, Transpersonal Coach

Welcome, my name is Mary Jane Houge. Thank you for connecting with me and taking this time for your own personal upgrade.

I have learned many life lessons through my own experiences and have been honored to have otherwise people share their teachings with me. We all come into this world with a set of skills to fulfill our mission, which is to express our authentic self. Often our upbringing or socialization have consisted of others imposing their “will” on us. Through it all, I have learned the value of connecting with your divine self and expressing your true nature. As the saying goes, nobody can do YOU better than YOU!

I have spent many years of my life trying to fill the shoes that my parents laid out for me. The problem being they didn’t fit, and they were never going to fit. It took me years and many amazing teachers to instill in me that I was perfect just the way I was. Life’s journey would be much more enjoyable with less foot problems if I wore the appropriate shoes! Part of this journey was to release feeling inadequate, I learned to love my feet once they were encased in the soft loving embrace of my soul.

I truly began this journey when I divorced back in 2001. I was free to begin my journey of self-discovery. I took the big leap to get back on track, and to follow my inner guide. My children were grown, and it was time for me to discover my true self and complete my mission. I realized that this was the key to a joyous fulfilled life. I took my own personal healing journey to Jamaica. I needed a renovated set of values to escape the “hamster wheel cage” crafted by limited thinking.  I had my own personal trauma and was spinning, this was just what I needed to redesign my future. I would go as much as much as I could to Jamaica and contemplate and be open to what I was seeing and learning. My thoughts were shifting reshaping my future. This is how my retreat division started.

I have and continue to study African Shamanism and Divining with Malidoma Some’, Native American ceremonies, songs and rituals, Daoism, quantum physics and various teachings on living a spiritual life.

My passion now is to continue to live an authentic limitless life and to help others on their journey of self-discovery. I enjoy living a life full of amazing experiences created from wonderful places and people. I hope you will join me and others whom are ready to shine their light into this world brighter every day.

My goal is to support you in cultivating more joy, love, balance, laughter, and peace in your life and in this world. The warmth of your glow feels so good to my soul and I know as we all shine our light brighter we become one universal light! I am looking forward to sharing paths and uniting our flames.
