Work one-to-one, to support and deepen your inner practice


For current students

I offer one-to-one mentoring sessions on Zoom, to help guide, support, and deepen your inner practice, healing, and life transformation. If you’ve taken one of our courses and/or been practicing in our ongoing community (“Stream Circle”), please feel very welcome to come schedule a one-to-one session with me (Mary Hartley ~ Entering the Stream’s teacher and founder), whenever you’d like one. We’ll use techniques from our Zen tradition, from my modern trauma healing skills certification (with Deirdre Fay, international trauma expert and founder of Becoming Safely Embodied), and from compassion and neuroscience research, intuition, and my long-term personal healing experience, to help you skillfully navigate and unwind whatever new experiences, emotions, memories, questions, realizations, obstacles, and more may be arising in your personal adventure of practice, and continue to cultivate your alignment with your real self and most genuine and meaningful life.

Sessions are $125/ 60 minutes. I also offer one-to-one meditation sessions, which include a mentoring chat + a 25-minute guided meditation, for $95/ 60 minutes.

To schedule a session, please get in touch here.

I look forward to working with you!


For new students

Welcome! If you’d like to learn our beautiful and dynamic style of Zen meditation and mindfulness on your own schedule and with personal attention, I offer one-to-one versions of our 8-week Zen courses. You can choose from our beginner’s course, “Zen Meditation and Mindfulness for Health and Well-Being,” or our advanced course, “Zen Meditation and Mindfulness for Grounding and Awakening” (also suitable for beginners with a strong interest, and for anyone with at least 6 months of daily meditation experience). (Click on the links to read the full details of both.) We’ll meet once a week on Zoom, for 90-minute sessions. The course will introduce everything you need to get started in your own daily Zen practice for life. To book your course, please reach out here.


I also offer a longer-term one-to-one program, “Finding Zen,” which is ideal for new students coming to Zen meditation and mindfulness with strong suffering or pain to heal, or for anyone who would like the most complete introduction to our style of Zen practice. This program is available on your own schedule, online on Zoom from wherever you are. You can choose a 6-month or a 12-month option, and we’ll meet twice a month, for 90-minute sessions. Together, we’ll get you started on your own time-tested, strong, and supportive path out of stress and suffering, into deep peace, joy, wisdom, freedom, and fulfillment, using simple, daily practices that heal life at the roots from within. In my experience, our Zen tradition offers a uniquely deep and transformational level of neuroplasticity-based healing. I created “Finding Zen” for people who may be struggling (as I once was) with intense pain, anxiety, depression, despair, difficult emotions, painful habits, unresolved and/or undiagnosed trauma (including C-PTSD), feeling lost, feeling disconnected, and more. I remember thinking (almost ten years ago now), “Why does life hurt so much?” The changes I’ve been able to cultivate through my Zen practice have been beyond my wildest dreams of what I realized was possible in life. If you can relate to this, and would like to enter your own deep freedom and healing, “Finding Zen” could be life-changing for you. It would be my honor to support you (as my teachers have supported me). Emerging from even very deep suffering, into a new, beautiful, and meaningful stage of your life, is fully possible for you. It’s been working in our Zen tradition for generations.

The first step is to schedule a free call, to learn more about the “Finding Zen” program, ask your questions, and see if it would be the right fit for your specific situation, goals, and needs. You can contact me here to schedule your free call and get started in learning more.
