"Mary Lydia Ryan, one of the most genuine, authentic and loving persons I know, is nothing but passionate about the work she does and the gifts she is blessed with. Through her own personal life experiences it is truly her goal to reach out and pay forward the healing that was given to her. My time with her has pulled me out of some of the darkest of my days and gave me tools to a new perspective on how to visualize and live my life. Who knows where I would be today if she and I had not crossed paths."

“In the Fall of 2017 my life felt overwhelming. To be honest, I was living in terror on a daily basis. My fight or flight was activated from the second I woke up to the moment I fell asleep with most nights only getting 4 to 6 hours of sleep. Mary came to my home and set up. There was aroma therapy, a salt lamp, and chimes and a tuning fork. I had no idea what was going to happen next! Through Mary’s voice and healing hands I was taken on the most amazing journey of healing I have ever experienced. I saw images. I heard messages. I had an overwhelming physical response that brought me to tears more than once. When the experience was finished I was exhausted. It was cathartic. It has been two months since we had our healing session. My life did not get better over night. It took about 6 weeks before all the fear that had been living with me disappeared. To have released and healed my fear has been the greatest healing of my life to date and I attribute it to my musically guided healing session with Mary Lydia Ryan. Thank You Mary.”

 "The color green bathed me like eucalyptus scent does in a water bath, and I have a love for the soothing water bath.  Not only was I physically sick with a virus, but I am still healing emotionally from hiding in the gay closet for more than 40 years, and so a sound bath of healing opened my mind to releasing deep memories of self-loathing, of inability to feel what it is to be gay.  Mary Lydia Ryan's healing energy that came during the sound bathing and music she gave to me initiated some dreams in the following days and weeks that were truly amazing. I feel that the sound bath and music, the gentle touch of healing and energy that Mary Lydia gave me, were a natural way for me to heal, as music and sound have been such an over-arching part of my life.  But when the color green appeared as I bathed in sound and healing during her session with me and my husband, I knew that the visual side of my brain was connecting with the other parts to heal by coming together.  Compartmentalizing my mind became such a habit as I hid in the dark, gay closet for so long, and this sound bathing process reconnected my brain neurons, and then came the dreams and feelings of healing.  Thank you, Mary Lydia, for such deep experiences.  I must say, also, that physically, I felt renewed, too, and it seems my immune system began fighting with more strength.  But, the emotional healing, oh my, it was wonderful beyond words.  A painting of sound, green and beautiful."

"One of the things I appreciate the most about Mary, and which lends her even more credibility as an intuitive practitioner, is that she has the integrity to strive to be the clearest channel she can.  If she's unsure about whether the guidance she's getting is colored by her own filters, she'll readily share that, which empowers her clients to use their own intuition.  Her desire to be truthful and humble actually makes her even more spot-on and accurate than most of the readings I receive from others.  She is a true Empath."

 Referencing Spa Opera® live musical theater: 

"Mary has a gift. She combines an innate understanding of the meditative journey with the power of music to assist her audience to let go of the cares of their conscious mind. The experience she creates allows participants to relax into another world where color, aroma, sound and the imagination become a gateway to healing. The evening will give you a little window into what your own personal Utopia feels like - thus giving you just enough fuel and hope to continue soldiering on in this Reality.   I thoroughly enjoyed it and I'll come back every chance I can get."

"If you have not been in the presence of Mary Lydia's magically healing gifts, then I suggest you move quickly, as empty spots fill up fast. Whether she is conducting a private Sound Healing session or a public "Sound/Sense Extravaganza" ("Smorgasbord"?"Melange"? "Alchemical Transformational Conspiracy"??), it will most likely be enigmatically delicious in a most delightful way. Mary Lydia's pure talent is truly impressive - vocal beauty, musicianship and true songwriting flair, but what I loved about her performance of Spa Opera, "The Wood Elves Serenade" is that it showcased her ability to gather a really special group of Artists and generously share the spotlight and celebrate each of them in turn. And there was CAKE.  amazing CAKE. Many people use the word "Enchanting" to describe a performance, but for me it is a rare occurrence to see someone really achieve that mood/aesthetic/magic.  Mary Lydia crafted an evening in which it really was possible to allow one's self to be transported into a more innocent, heartfelt and curious place, without having to take the dreaded detour into "Schmaltz-Land." Such a unique and remarkable adventure, there truly were moments I doubt I'll ever forget!"
