The Holistic Sober Living Course
Finding freedom from alcohol requires more than simply removing a physical substance from your body. In this course, you will better understand why you turn to alcohol and how to implement new habits to free yourself from cravings and improve your health & quality of life.
You don’t have to wait for a rock-bottom to get sober.
Alcohol use has become so normalized and deeply entrenched in our society that many fail to recognize the amount of time and energy consumed by a substance that is quite literally poison to your body, mind and spirit.
Problematic drinking is simply not as black/white as it’s made out to be. If you’re a “gray-area drinker” who doesn’t meet the criteria of alcohol-use disorder per se, but still experiences negative side effects from your drinking, this is a great opportunity to rid yourself of unnecessary suffering and build a life of purpose, meaning and joy alcohol-free.
The Holistic Sober Living Course is also designed to support those who are already sober with building a set of tools and practices to sustain your sobriety and wellbeing for the long-term.
Ask yourself this:
If the answer to even one of these questions is “yes” just remember, there is not one benefit of alcohol that justifies your suffering.
You don’t need to be an alcoholic to give up alcohol. You can make an empowered choice to embrace a holistic sober lifestyle, and reclaim vital energy to live the life you deserve.
Still have doubts about sobriety? Let’s address some of the big myths about drinking.
“I need alcohol to socialize & have fun”
The hard truth is this: if you think you need alcohol to have fun, you haven’t given yourself the chance to discover what truly lights you up. Believe me, this is an opportunity! There is so much more to life than getting drunk.
“But what if my friends, co-workers and spouse all need alcohol to have fun?”
You also don’t have to be the “buzz kill” or try to convince everyone around you not to drink. This program is designed to drastically reduce and eliminate any desire to drink, meaning eventually, you will feel fine engaging in activities you enjoy with the people you love without feeling triggered if alcohol is present.
“Alcohol relaxes me and helps me sleep”
Alcohol may sedate you for a few hours and even cause you to pass out more easily, but it definitely isn’t helping your sleep. In fact, even in small doses, alcohol is extremely damaging sleep quality. In this course, you will learn the true physiological effects of alcohol, how to manage your energy effectively, and replace your drinking habit with behaviors that will leave you feeling truly relaxed and well-rested.
“I’m not confident without alcohol.”
“Liquid courage” is a dangerous myth. Courage and confidence are inner qualities that are built much like exercising a muscle, they get stronger with practice of slowly moving outside your comfort zone. By bypassing this process, you are only creating a dependency, and reinforcing a belief that you need something outside of yourself, not solving a problem.
This course provides tools to slowly rebuild genuine confidence, and gain practice in a supportive group container. It may take time, but it’s worth the effort.
One moment at a time…
If the thought of living alcohol-free is over-whelming, just know that you don’t have to figure out your whole life right now. This is an opportunity to get curious, engage in an honest investigation about the role alcohol is playing in your life and be in the position to choose for yourself how you’d like to move forward rather than having your choices ruled by an addictive substance.

As the saying goes, change happens “one step at time”. Through the art of mindfulness, you will learn to anchor your attention in the present moment, and free yourself from guilt and shame tied to the past and fears about the future.
Understanding how the human brain works can not only help us break addictions, but can also be an incredible tool for fostering self-compassion and forgiveness. Begin to understand the chemical changes that occur in your brain as a result of drinking and how you can harness the power of the mind to stay sober and thrive in recovery.

Learn to establish healthy boundaries, let go of those people-pleasing tendencies and learn to confidently communicate your decision not to drink.

We see alcohol in the media paired with sports, we’re told it will help us wind down, relieve stress and enhance our social lives. As you learn the truth behind this very well-marketed “miracle drug”, the desire to consume it will naturally begin to fade away.

Being part of a supportive community is one of the best things you can do for yourself in sobriety.

Hi, I’m Mary
I’m a Certified Professional Recovery Coach (IAPRC), Yoga & Meditation Teacher, International Retreat Leader and the Founder of Sun & Moon Sober Living.
I’ve been sober since April 27, 2013, and while the past 9 years of sobriety have undoubtedly been the best years of my life, my road to recovery was anything but linear.
Prior to getting sober, I was the epitome of a high-functioning alcoholic and addict. From an outside perspective, I had just been promoted at one of the top advertising agencies in Chicago and was surrounded by friends and a wonderful family. Yet my inner experience told an entirely different story. I was hiding my alcohol and drug use, riddled with anxiety and overwhelming shame, and felt like I was constantly on the edge of disaster.
Since getting sober, I’ve had the opportunity to travel the globe leading Yoga & Meditation retreats which have been featured by Yoga Journal, Compare Retreats, and more, and have trained with world-renowned teachers and schools.
My aim with creating this course is to help free you from the suffering I endured, and give you the tools that have allowed me to thrive in sobriety. My approach is rooted in the understanding that in order to truly break an addiction, we need to get to the root of what drives our behavior in the first place, and build a set of skills and practices that will sustain us for the longterm.
The Holistic Sober living Course was excellent and such a great personal investment. Mary is a wealth of knowledge and she presents the material with such deep compassion and understanding. The group meetings were something I looked forward to every week. It was so great to learn from the other members and to share our struggles and successes together. I feel like everyone could benefit from this course regardless of your current experience. I started this course almost 3 years sober and in what I thought was a “pretty good” place. This course has helped me to make great strides and personal discovery on how I relate to myself and the world. I am forever grateful to Mary and the wonderful ladies in my group!
Mary popped into my awareness in a time I needed it most. Just when I had given up on my ability to commit to sobriety all over again, I decided to join her course. It was exactly what I needed to inspire me. She has shifted my perspective from needing to "quit" to feeling FREE from alcohol. She has a beautiful way of leading you through the different internal issues that will inevitably come up for you while on this journey. The community of people I met while engaged in this course held me accountable and helped me to not feel so alone. Highly recommend working with Mary and Sun & Moon to build your own stepping stones to a sustainable, holistic sober lifestyle.
"Mary is such a wealth of information and insight and has been such a huge motivator and supporter of me on my sober journey. The meetings she facilitated have all filled me up and left me feeling empowered and confident in my ability to live and thrive in sobriety."
The “difference” is that with Mary you get the chance to be supported by a person who’s entire being is focused towards living a sober life and understanding why you used and how it affected your body your nervous system and more. She understands the whole process of using, relapsing and getting sober so well that you accept your state and become willing to make a change and she is there to walk you through it.
I feel Mary made it her purpose to understand to the last “drop” why you are an alcoholic and how you can stop and live a sober, mindful life. The group is not only about sharing and listening to others but it also has Mary‘s feedback, which truly helps you understand yourself deeper.
This was a safe and supportive place to begin exploring sobriety and how to refocus life priorities. Thank you.
