About Rev. Mary Ann Tourjee
ASTROLOGER and Numerologist
“As above, so below”. . . the ancients understood this well, and from that, astrology came into being.
Mary Ann began her studies with Numerology – the Science of Numbers – which reveals so much through the birth name and birthdate! From that beginning, she soon realized that to truly understand numbers, she must learn astrology. Astrology provides the opportunity to assist others to better understand their own life energies, and even how that energy interacts with another in relationship. Ultimately, Astrology can provide a better understanding of who we are, and of the energies surrounding the happenings in the life. Astrology, Numerology, and the Astrology of the I Ching provide a glimpse of the blueprint of the life, or more specifically, of the ebb and flow of the energies surrounding the life.
Mary Ann received her Foundation Training in Astrology through the Faculty of Astrology Studies in the United Kingdom. Currently, she is in formal study for her Master of Astrology of Certification with Master Astrologer, Noel Tyl. She views all that she does as a “life-long study” because there is always so much more to learn and understand!

Creating Sacred Geometry: A Meditative Practice Class
Sacred Geometry is a powerful! Mary Ann has found that creating Sacred Geometry Mandalas requires a meditative focus and that the finished piece is a perfect addition to your personal meditative practice. On occasion, this is a workshop that she leads. All that is required is paper, pencil, eraser, colored pencils, a compass, and ruler.

Sacred Beading by Mary Ann
Creating Rosaries, Prayer Beads and Personal Pieces to meet your needs
Several years ago, soon after the opening of the Spiritual Healing Temple, Mary Ann began sacred beading — creating rosaries, malas, and prayer beads for many traditions. Soon that work grew in the Mission Rosary Project, which met monthly for a few years creating rosaries and prayer beads. At Christmas each year, she presented these to the Franklin Care Center in Turner’s Falls for their residents.
Sacred Beading Today
Working with semi-precious gemstones, swarovski beads, sacred symbols, and following spiritual guidance, Mary Ann creates unique pieces for others. These pieces may be designed for higher levels of spiritual protection, for enhancing meditative practices, or for general well-being.
Costs vary depending on the piece and the materials required.
Annually she continues to make special pieces which she donates to support the work of a local church in her area.

A Sample of the Classes Presented by Mary Ann
Mary Ann periodically offers classes at the Spiritual Healing Temple. Past classes have included: Introduction to Numerology, Angels, A Mandala Vision Quest, Create Your Crystal Astrological Wheel; and Introduction to Prayer Beads.
Mary Ann grew-up in southwestern Virginia in a community where many traditional faith paths were represented. Worship was always a part of her life. But, it was watching her Grandmother and how she faced great tragedies in her life that Mary Ann credits as “teaching her faith”.
In 1986, she and family moved to Massachusetts, where she completed her 30+ year professional career as a Certified Professional Librarian. In the midst of those years, she “heard Spirit” call her to ministry. While working full-time and raising three children, she began studies for a Master of Divinity, and entered the Candidacy For Ministry Path with the United Methodist Church. In 2005, she heard Spirit direct her to leave her profession; she did. On the eve of her final day of work, she was called by the UMC and appointed Local Pastor of an area church.
That Appointment brought Nancy Higgins into her life, and opened the door for awareness of the faith paths outside of traditional mainline religion. In 2007, she and Nancy enrolled with the New Seminary in NYC for the two year course of study for Ordination as an Interfaith Minister. They were ordained in May, 2009, at Riverside Church in New York.
In the 1990s Mary Ann was called by Spirit to formally enter the ministry path. In preparation, while working as a librarian, she became a student for the Master of Divinity, and formally entered the Candidacy for Ministry path with the United Methodist Church.With synchronicity that only the Divine can arrange, in 2005, she was appointed as a UMC Pastor, which brought Nancy into her life. In 2007, Mary Ann and Nancy began formal study for Interfaith Ministry with the New Seminary in NYC. They were ordained in 2009 at Riverside Church in New York.

Over the next few years, Mary Ann experienced transformational spiritual growth which ultimately brought her out of the limiting ministry of the UMC, as she entered the world of Interfaith Ministry, the practice and study of Shamanism, Reiki, the I Ching, Numerology, and Astrology. In 2013, following the suggestion of Alan Oken, Mary Ann began formal study of Astrology by entering the Foundational Studies of Astrology with the Faculty of Astrology Study in the United Kingdom. She completed that two year course in December 2015. In February 2016 she enter the Master Certification Course in Astrology with renowned Master Astrologer, Noel Tyl. Mary Ann is honored to have him as her teacher and mentor. She continues to be amazed by this study!
Today, Nancy and Mary Ann devote all of their time to the work they were “called” to do at the Spiritual Healing Temple.
