Contact Name: Mary Dahl
I am an author, nature enthusiast, peace promoter and energy worker with interest in balancing the mind/body/spirit connection, with focus on harnessing the power of words, love, joy, human interaction/connection and nature to restore optimum health. My passion lies in assisting others to recognize their strengths, attributes and dreams and to offer the hope and encouragement to achieve them.
Based on my personal experience and unique method of overcoming a diagnosed “serious mental illness” and after conducting much empirical and scientific research, I created Capture Life Writing, a developing non-profit organization. The vision of Capture Life Writing is to eradicate the current cultural consensus concept of mental illness. We offer holistic solutions through an emotional wellness plan, vocational and retirement programs, memoir/storytelling/non-fiction writing coaching and journaling for wellness and clarity.
Retired from the University at Buffalo after more than 30 years assisting students in their vocational pursuits, I am converting my Clarence home into headquarters…a nature sanctuary for others to unplug and reflect, and to offer programs, resources and opportunity to discover mental and emotional wellness.
Celebrating life one word at a time, I live the quote:
"I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being." - Hafez of Shiraz
