Mary Lunnen lives near the dramatic coast of North Cornwall, in the far south west of the United Kingdom. Her passion is helping people to find their way home to themselves; to rediscover their inner wisdom. She does this through the Dare to Blossom Rediscovery Process using a simple pack of cards with a single word and a colour.
This powerful tool brings people back into conversation with their own truth.
As well as one-to-one coaching, Mary runs workshops and online courses. She draws inspiration from her love of the sea and the natural landscape around her home, which she explores in photography and art.
Mary began her own journey of coming home after a diagnosis of cancer in 1994. She has been daring herself to blossom ever since. The diagnosis sparked a practice of journalling that grew into four published books and many articles and blog posts.
Since 2003 Dare to Blossom Life Coaching has supported individuals and business people around the world. Mary runs inspirational workshops and on-line programmes using all the skills she has acquired and focusing around creative visualisation using the theme of a ‘Magic Carpet Ride’.
Believing that work/life balance is too simplistic, Mary specialises in helping people achieve balance in all aspects of their lives. Through goal-setting and action-planning she helps them move forward at the right pace for them whilst making real progress.
“Mary has helped me so much, to the point where I feel like I can breathe so much easier,” says one of her clients.
Mary’s other loves are writing, art and photography, which in turn add depth and substance to her business.
