“We cease being
victims of life and
all its fears when
we realize that
contrasting emotions
can teach peace.”
- Mary Corning

Change Your World

Mary Corning changes lives by defining the transformative power of pain. As an author, horse advocate, mentor, workshop and retreat facilitator, she clearly and compassionately models this process through her messages and stories.

Mary extends her philosophy into her world of horses, where both people and horses benefit from realizing a different way to interpret challenge.

Great teachers have offered support and blessings that caused a shift in her perception. That shift, in turn changed her world. And it can change yours, too.
