Mary A. Stevens, II is a kunoichi (female ninja), 4th degree black belt in To-Shin Do ninjutsu, empowerment coach, and entrepreneur. Her interest in esoteric teachings started in the mid-1980s reading everything she could and experimenting with different modalities. Even then , people sought her out for issues related to crystals, manifestation, and healing. She felt deeply that something was missing that would allow her to truly make a difference for these people, perhaps there was a reality-based, grounded quality of study she could add?
In 1991, Mary almost died. Laying in the hospital, having lost most of her senses, the only way she knew she was alive was by listening to the heartrate monitor. She managed the overwhelming panic by breathing to control the sound of her heartbeat. This experience of meditation in the physical world led her to realize she needed to connect her head with her body.
In 1998, she found the martial art of To-Shin Do and found the physical and spiritual training of the ninja. Combining body work with internal change and growth represented exactly what she needed. Mary is now one of the highest ranking women in To-Shin Do and currently training towards her 5th Degree Black Belt. Her training has taught her that she can handle whatever life has come her way.
In 2005, Mary opened her own dojo and started sharing this mystical art with students in Boulder, CO. Mary absolutely loved utilizing her intuition to run her business for 12 years. Mary followed her intuition to the day she woke up and knew it was time to sell the dojo. She worked with her top student and helped him find his way to become the owner and leader of that community. It was terrifying for Mary to make that leap–to be 45 years old and selling a profitable business providing a stable income. With no plan, she put her stuff in storage and packed the car with essentials. Then she and Penelope (her Rottweiler) set off for a countrywide road trip.
Everything she knew, everything she has learned, encouraged her to trust that inner voice. It was time to jump.
That same voice led her home to PA . After months on the road she started the process of creating Being Ninja. It was time to create programs that let people experience the growth and esoteric teachings she spent two decades learning. From To-Shin Do, to studies at Naropa, to Buddhist studies, to adult empowerment, she has a unique ability to share programs that that allow participant to experience their best life.
I have taken classes with Mary for years- and look forward to many more!
Each and every time I feel like Mary’s gift of insightfulness and intuition helps me connect with my deeper truths in a safe way.
Mary’s years of experience and training puts her in a unique position to help unite people, reveal universal truths and uncover hidden potential.
Make time to take classes with Mary- you will be glad you did!
I have known Mary for over 10 years and have been a To Shin Do student for 4. I learned so much as a beginner from her about accepting my body and honoring how it moves in the world. She has a unique way of approaching students that empowers them to bring out their very best. Her depth and breadth of knowledge always impresses me and makes me have new perspectives in looking at life through my training. Mary is passionate about bringing the feminine perspective to what most would perceive as a masculine art form. I would take advantage of any opportunity to train with her on and off the mat.
Mary Stevens has an uncanny ability to hold a clean clear space and facilitate deep transformation of situational and self-perception. Its as if she is able to hold up a mirror which allows me to see myself and the context I am in with a clarity and freedom that I had not previously experienced.
She has many times helped me shift from a perspective of confused overwhelm to one of capability, clarity and strength. I highly recommend working with Mary Stevens.
During all the years I’ve known Mary, (at the dojo and even after she sold her dojo in Boulder and embarked on new adventures), Mary was there for me, encouraging, pushing, praising, prodding me past my limitations, and giving me permission to be powerful. She’s alternately (and sometimes simultaneously) gentle and fierce, blending clear, direct insights with love and deep compassion, and facilitating the kind of mind-blowing breakthroughs I could never have imagined.
