Mari Kennedy

Teacher, inquirer, wisdom seeker, change maker Mari has been exploring and experimenting with what it means to live a full and meaningful life, for the past 14 years. In her work, she weaves ancient wisdom practices with contemporary developmental psychology, neuroscience, Integral spirituality and Zen.

After two decades as manager and strategist, she stepped off the corporate ladder to pick up her passion – personal and societal change, adult development and potential; first becoming a yoga teacher, then a coach, a mindfulness teacher and then an Integral facilitator.  The journey was sometimes messy and circuitous, often unclear but always worth it!

She has been a yoga teacher since 2005 and she loves every minute of teaching. Her journey as a yogi has challenged her to step up into living intentionally, bravely, responsibility and aligned to her deepest self. This has led her to set up an organisational development and coaching business and to curate creative projects that ask big questions about society. She has coached CEOs, managing partners, leadership teams, leading Irish creatives and artists and in particular, women who want to live a more empowered life. Her creative projects include Census of The Heart and Ireland: Iceland project

Her daily practice and self-study are the foundation of her work with the ongoing guidance of her teachers past and present. They include Diane Musho Hamilton (Zen, facilitation, mindfulness), Dolores Whelan (Celtic Wisdom), Joan Davis (embodiment/ somatics) Rosella Baroncini ( Scaravelli yoga), John Friend & Sianna Sherman( Anusara yoga ), Abbi Galvin (Katonah yoga) Mary O’Callaghan ( Mindfulness & Self Compassion), Rob McNamara (Developmental psychology & coaching) Chloe Goodchild ( Naked voice)
