About the Author


Mary Lane is the author of Divine Nourishment: A Woman’s Sacred Journey with Food. She lives on the island of Maui, where she co-facilitates circles, retreats, and a yearly apprentice program that supports women to strengthen their relationship with their own unique gifts, and with Mother Earth.

Over her forty-year career as a professional chef, Mary’s journey took her through a doorway into the wisdom of nature. She became a devoted student of the natural world. Over time, the Mother’s wisdom revealed itself as a vast reservoir which has the capacity to take us home to ourselves.

Mary Lane’s studies have supported her alignment with nature’s wisdom. These studies have included a two-year schooling as a professional chef, a two-year schooling in five element nourishment, a two-year schooling in plant spirit medicine, a decade focused on sacred sexuality, ongoing schooling on conscious dying, Five Rhythm dance, and studies with several teachers in herbalism and wild food identification.
