Mari Kennedy is a teacher, women’s leadership coach, Celtic wisdom holder, entrepreneur and Integral facilitator. She’s also a teacher of mindfulness, yoga and embodiment. Her work (and her ongoing personal inquiry) centres around women, wisdom and the different ways of knowing – ancient and modern.

Mari has spent the last two decades walking the heroine’s journey from exhausted disconnected woman ‘living the dream’ to living more fully alive in the messiness and magnificence of being a woman in the 21st century. Her big passion is in supporting women to live and lead from a place of connection to their innate wisdom and power as weavers of a new world.

In her work, Mari intertwines ancient wisdom practices of the Celtic tradition, mindfulness, self-compassion and embodiment with contemporary developmental psychology, neuroscience and Integral spirituality.

In 2018 she launched The Celtic Wheel, Radical Wisdom for Contemporary Women. This is a year-long online programme that has gathered women from around the planet to work with contemporary wisdom and the ancient indigenous Celtic wisdom of her native land, Ireland.
