Marianne Murray, Ph.D. 


Marianne met Stan’s work at the start of the 1990s, when she was forging deep personal and professional change in her life. For the next decade, Stan’s theoretical framework and breathwork wove through her (MA) studies of transpersonal psychology and (PhD) studies in transformative learning. During that same time, she certified as a facilitator of systemic constellations and as a massage therapist. Both these practices contribute significantly to her understanding of somatic wisdom, and how to bring presence and support when working in expanded states of consciousness. She completed the Grof Transpersonal Training in 2001 and, during the past two decades, has facilitated breathwork in the UK, Europe, Kenya, and India, as well as the US. Based in Santa Fe, where she is a faculty member at the Academy for the Love of Learning, her focus is on how experiential practices, including breathwork, support healing and learning at the intersection of individual and cultural conditioning. Marianne is a Board member for the Grof Legacy Project USA and is a certified Grof® Breathwork facilitator
