Meet Mary Ann... Sustenance for the Journey




I am Mary Ann Matthys, MA, CSD

I am an Artist, Certified Spiritual Director, and Retreat Facilitator who utilizes the creative process as an invitation to personal growth.

I am a Color of Woman Teacher, Intentional Creativity Coach and Licensed Journey Circles Facilitator.  The creative process in all its forms offers a profound way to explore and enhance each person’s life.  

I am a person who values life in all its forms. I love nature and feel especially close to the Divine when I am in natural settings. 

I value relationships. For me, it is important to engage others with understanding, knowing that every individual has inherent value and self worth.

In the core of my being, I am a person who seeks to live into her faith day-by-day, moment-by-moment. I am a creative individual who finds the creative process a wonderful way to consecrate my life to God.

My personal website offers opportunities for personal growth and transformation and an invitation to deeper communion with the Divine through Creativity and other Spiritual Practices. I hope this website will be sustenance for your spiritual journey.  Take what resonates with your soul and discard what you do not need or want.

It is my sincere hope that you will find the joy that comes in consecrating each day!

Blessings always!

Mary Ann Matthys
