Mary is delighted to share with you her latest book of inspirational poetry, "Feel the Heal: An Anthology of Poems to Heal Your Life." This collection of poems was inspired by Dr. Ryan Means, a chiropractor who reminded Mary about the innate Divine Intelligence within that would help her heal a serious knee injury in December 2014 and help her to get back to the sport of running that is her medicine and her passion. Shortly after meeting Dr. Ryan, Mary found her way to Jeffrey Spratt, MT, an innovative muscular therapist who would help her reclaim her advantage and reclaim her life through the power of positive touch and compassionate presence.
In December of 2006, Mary McManus’ mind, body and soul were crying out for healing. She was diagnosed with Post-Polio Syndrome, a progressive neuromuscular disease as Western medicine defines it. It was her wake up call to find a path for healing. In February of 2007, she discovered the healing power of writing poetry. Foreshadowing her 2009 Boston Marathon run while using a cane, a leg brace and at times a wheelchair for mobility, she wrote her first poem "Running the Race." She calls her pen her divining rod for healing that inspires healing mind, body and Spirit from childhood paralytic polio and sexual, physical and emotional abuse from the time she was 8 years old until her dad’s suicide when she was 17 years old.
When we bypass our analytical minds and are able to see beyond appearances, magic and miracles happen. Mary’s hope and intention is that as you read these poems, you too will feel the heal, experience possibility and be inspired to open your heart to a world beyond what we see and know.
