Testimonials:

heart“Mary England is the raw and real, inspiring and colorful voice of fun and truth. She is quirky in a way that makes you want to dig deep and be the most honest version of yourself with zero shame, and she is deeply steeped in knowledge that, when married with her playful aura, combines to form the most intriguing and trustworthy combo. She hosted a “Merriment Booth” at our Fall 2015 workshop, which encouraged hand written love letters, free play, quirky oddities, and self-love! In plain words, she’s f*ck#ng fantastic, energizing and definitely one of a kind.” – Madeline Rhodes + Jessica Serra Huizenga of Monarch Workshop
