Marie-Hélène Tourenne

My skills are in the field of healing, spirituality, teaching, special parenting and art. I started Transcendental Meditation 43 years ago and under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s guidance became a TM teacher in 1974. This has brought me immense benefits, growth, understanding and many surprises!

About 20 years later I discovered that I had an ability to heal others using my hands but I wanted an actual time-proven technique. I was lucky to find Kolaimni, a very complete method that is at the same time very powerful and gentle. I have practiced it for 20 years and have been an instructor for 4 years. I have also taught in a private school and gave private classes. I am a weaver. I owned a restaurant, Petit Paris, for 5 years and co-authored the Petit Paris at Home Cookbook. I practice Jingui Golden Shield Qi Gong and have received the The Rites of the Munay-Ki.

I am the blessed parent of 3 children, including a Down Syndrome son who was my first born. This led me to reevaluate my concepts and certainties, to reset my views of “normality”, and the contributions of all human beings to our world. It taught me to give without any expectation, a path of Love that holds amazing rewards. I had challenging times but I was able to pull the nourishing substance out of it that has helped me to grow, to keep my joy and dignity, to learn trust, acceptance, to embrace peace, and to feel humbled by the gifts that life bestowed upon me. I learned that lightheartedness and responsibility make a very powerful team.

Connie Huebner


The defining moment of my life came when I was a 21 yr old college student. I had the undeniable experience that I am one with God, one with all that is. This experience has never left me. The rest of my life has been dedicated to going deeper into that experience and all its ramifications.
I started a quest which I called my search for the Kingdom of Heaven. This was an inward search, a research into my self.
As I looked deeply and honestly within my self, Divine qualities were revealed.. First, Divine Light appeared, then the nurturing quality of Divine Love manifested. Other Divine qualities emerged. I discovered that these qualities could be called upon to improve my daily life and the lives of my family and friends.
As I worked with the Divine qualities, I began to receive guidance and knowledge from a Divine Presence. At first, it came from Jesus. Later, Mother God made her self known to me and offered a great wealth of Divine wisdom. In time I began working with people. View Guest page
