What People Say About Susanne Marie

 

‘Susanne Marie radiates love. She brings the best out of me and I leave her sessions feeling expanded and loving. Being totally present happens naturally in her presence. She listens deeply without interruption or judgment. She points me in a clear direction when faced with a dilemma and my trust in her is absolute due to her honesty and unpretentious nature. When relating with Susanne I connect with someone of great spiritual depth and wisdom. One of the benefits of having Susanne as a mentor is she draws you into your own deepness.’
~ Pierre Richard, Montréal, Canada

‘Susanne Marie is a hidden gem. Not to you, because you’ve found her website. But to the many people trying to sort through the plethora of contemporary spiritual teachers to find one who is deeply realized, unpretentious, well-integrated, empathetic, and accessible. I hope more of them find her. Unlike actual gems, that won’t diminish her value. It will just spread the light, love, and wisdom which she has so genuinely uncovered within herself, which is why I started Buddha at the Gas Pump in the first place. I am often asked who I recommend, among all the people I’ve interviewed. I usually say that there are many wonderful people, and you should go with those with whom you feel an affinity, but then I mention a few who have become good friends. Susanne Marie is high on that short list.’
~ Rick Archer, Buddha at the Gas Pump

‘Susanna is not only a spiritual teacher but also a true healer. I have been working with Susanna for almost a year now and I has been a period of deep healing and transformation. She is able to connect and communicate on many levels and she does so with absolute care, softness and compassion. I honor her work and the loving environment she provides is both consoling and nurturing.
Susanna speaks her truth with humbleness and respect. She does not force her teaching or opinion in anyway and she is always willing to listen and give space for clarity and healing. I believe the world is in need for the feminine wisdom to arise and be part of our growth and evolution and Susanna offers that with absolute tenderness and loving-kindness.’
~ Ray, Australia

‘There are over 300 spiritual teachers that have been brilliantly interviewed on Buddha at the Gas Pump over the last few years. And out of all of them, I felt drawn to seek out Susanne as she has an especially real, natural and down-to-earth way of expressing all that she has experienced, and the obvious wisdom that has come from such a journey. My first mentoring session with Susanne confirmed the down-to-earth nature but also revealed a warm, perceptive, and refreshingly good-humoured lady. When the session was over I walked away feeling deeply comforted on so many levels that words can’t possibly explain. If you need assistance on your spiritual adventure, then I would find it hard to recommend someone more highly than Susanne.’
~Eoin Glynn, Ireland

‘Susanne Marie’s guidance has profoundly impacted me. She intuitively responds to my situation at any given time, knowing precisely where I am even before I can consciously acknowledge it to myself. Her wisdom, loving kindness, and gentle pointers have opened doors and windows I hadn’t thought possible. I can’t say enough good about her methods and manner whether in a group setting or one-on-one. She is the real deal.’
~ Laurie Woodum, California

‘Susanne’s work is amazingly potent. She resides in a space of immense depth and clarity. From that view she is able to help illuminate what is not fully seen. Her intuition is laser sharp and accurate as she skillfully, compassionately, supports deepening into truth and freedom. Her presence offers an embrace of unconditional love and safety. Susanne is the Divine Feminine embodied both in her gentleness and her strength.’
~ Karen McFee, Canada, Living Now

‘My experience of Susanne Marie is of a truly authentic spiritual teacher. She is a tremendously skilled communicator- ‘speaking’ to both your heart as well as your head. She is a kind and powerful guide and I feel privileged to have received her guidance.’
~ Sarah Smith, UK

‘I have been deeply impacted by my mentoring sessions with Susanne. She has the wisdom & insight to know just what it is that you need at the time & is able to provide you with the practical tools that you can apply to your every day life. I feel truly blessed by her beautiful Presence & would highly recommend her as a spiritual mentor.’
~ Kimberlie, Australia

‘Susanne Marie is like a breath of fresh air among spiritual teachers. Many present clear pointers, but Susanne has the ability to make one feel comfortable with what she presents. She has great empathy and tunes into where the questioner stands within them self. Her answers and pointers resonate within and help clear the way for the discovery of truth. Her friendliness and ability to empathize gives one the feeling that they are conversing with an old friend. She does not hold herself as superior, so one feels they are interacting with the girl next door, rather than with someone who does not know life as they have experienced it. One feels at ease in her presence. She likes to meet in sacred mutuality, where one discovers truth within ones self, rather than from outside. She comes cross as quite ordinary, despite the depth of her realization. One has the feeling that they can share anything of their own inner landscape and have it received and responded to without judgement.’
~ Ted Anderson, California

‘Within our conversations, and through her constancy, Susanne directs me on my path to coming to to know my-self. Always unveiling the truth that my misunderstandings lie in looking at the story, rather than actually living my own real immediate interior life. And that is where the safety, the honor, and the beauty of life lies. Susanne gives me reminders and a very safe place to practice being with my-self through the dark times and also the times of ease and relief. I can now say that I am more often trusting my life to be my teacher, and the earth to be my mother. All my blessings.’
Gretchen Seifert, Missouri

‘I met Susanne Marie, first heard about her, through a post on Dami Kirk’s Facebook page. He quoted her Facebook page and so I followed her there and read everything she had to say there. Then I watched all of her videos. I then read everything on her website. I then called to see about setting up sessions to speak in person. All I can say is, her words are like cool, clean, clear water falling over me: Her written word, her spoken word, her face-to-face speaking.
Susanne Marie said it in our very first meeting that she meets a person where they are. I couldn’t have felt more profoundly respected and honored. It also allowed me to respect and honor where I was, which was a really vulnerable place. There was no rush to get out of there, there was no need to wallow in it, she just met me where I was and continues to be true to her word.

My marriage is now on the path toward lifelong love, respect, honor, joy and fun. My child is now being raised by a woman who is more aware, which only welcomes in more light, learning, love and laughter in anyone’s life. I am more comfortable with myself. Which is more than I ever ever could’ve asked for. Every day I am grateful for the friend who introduced me to Dami Kirk, nearly 30 years ago, because that meeting led me to a mother, like myself, I so needed to find at this point in my life. Every day I’m grateful for having met Susanne Marie.’
~ Marian, New Jersey

‘Susanne has a gift of deep listening. In her Presence online I’ve found that I can safely pursue avenues and questions regarding my spiritual life. With gentle pointers from her I’ve found clarity and glimpses of my own Awakened state. This has allowed me new perspective and ‘tools’ to live a holistic life. I heartily recommend Susanne to anyone interested in getting out of the usual ego-driven paradigm into increased Freedom.’
~ Joseph Brennan, Arizona

‘I’ve listened to many people over the years, watched numerous videos, and I can, from a very authentic
place, say Susanne is amazing at hitting the mark and enabling. Her style is unique, loving, caring and boy
does she listen so well. How the sense of the veil falling away has come about for myself is wonderful. A way of self expression has been released that can be challenging for people and has me writing prose and dancing with words, being genuine in releasing from the moment’.
~ Shar-Ka-Tana, United Kingdom

‘I’ve been part of Susanne Marie’s online sangha for a couple of years now and while I’m grateful for the insight and the community of like-minded seekers, I’m always amazed by the distinct energetic transmission through the cyber community as well as a lingering alchemical transformation. I feel deeply blessed for the opportunity to imbibe her teachings.’
~ Paul McDonald, Kentucky

‘I appreciate Susanne’s ability to hold groups in a place of truthfulness, compassion and witnessing. The topics arise from personal experience, often spontaneously, and grounded in what is happening now. A spaciousness allows full participation from everyone, with reflection and acknowledgement. In each of the group sessions, I am left feeling met and supported in whatever place I’m in. I sense that Susanne is subtly nurturing our emergent selves.’
~ Michael Skoyles, California

‘Susanne Marie is the most helpful teacher I have ever worked with. Her ability for “deep listening” and “deep seeing” is uncanny. I have been working with Susanne for several months now, and I don’t know how she does it! She just seems to know what is needed in the moment . My life is deeper, richer, happier and freer since meeting her.  I am deeply grateful to her and I highly, highly recommend her.’
~ Timothy Dismang, California


‘I am deeply grateful to have connected with Susanne Marie. I was feeling moved to work with a teacher/guide for some time and when I saw her link, I felt an immediate resonance. After I booked my first mentoring session, I found and watched her interview on Buddha at the Gas Pump, and I felt even more assured with my decision to work with her after watching, and ultimately after our first meeting. There is no ‘agenda’ beyond simple truth and perception in the moment, and I was/am relieved to have found that! She has a very spacious, clear and humble way about her. I feel fortunate to have found this type of guide/mentor so close…I drive an hour each way, and for me, our session begins when I’m in the car, if that makes any sense…my energy starts to shift, my questions begin to clarify… If Life has brought you to reading these words, I say trust it. I’m glad I did. You will be met with a deeply loving and peaceful presence, where all is welcomed…I share this in Gratitude to Truth.’
~Tricia Allenson, California

‘Susanne Marie is a great lover of the Truth, and her deep devotion and intuitive teaching are reflections of the embodiment of this Truth. In her presence you taste the humor, love and deep caring needed to support the realization and emergence of the divine embrace that you are. In co-teaching with her, I have experienced her teaching as quiet and gentle, yet filled with an intimate, intuitive, palpably powerful presence…an approach that awakens the wonders of deep insight and transformation in a simple and profound way…allowing grace to do its work through human form. Susanne Marie embodies transformative presence in all aspects of her life…parenting, spiritual teaching, friendship, and is a reminder and manifestation of the timeless joys of deep openness and love inherent in the pure consciousness of Heart.’
~Larry Melton, Spiritual Teacher in the direct lineage of Adyashanti

‘Sometimes it is simply a person’s demeanor that allows one insight, as being in the presence of the open sea allows one an experience of the vastness of the world we live in. Susanne Marie allows for this opening. She has the capacity to help drop the close constriction of fear and doubt and open us to the world beyond our mind.’
~ Vince, California

‘Susanne’s presence is soothing, her insightful truth penetrating, her work transformational. If you want to soften into the next delightful step, treat yourself to a mentoring session with Susanne. You will come away with some radical new way to look at things that will shift everything. I know I can’t wait for my next session.’
~ Sonika Tinker, MSW, Relationship Expert, Founder of LoveWorks, California

‘Susanne’s clear intuition helped me to see my current life circumstances (and health challenges) from a totally new perspective. This new knowing was not just mental, but something deep inside me really ‘got it.’ Everything in my life changed and continues to change (for the better) as a result of this. Susanne has a real gift for combining spiritual insights with practical application. I am so grateful to be working with her and highly recommend her services.’
~ DeAnna, B.C. Canada

‘Susanne Marie’s gentle and compassionate style gives people the opportunity to recognize the truth of their own being in simple and clear ways.’
~ Peter Russell, Author, Teacher, and Fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences

‘Susanne Marie held me in her facilitation with such deep presence and guidance that I felt safe enough to revisit a painful past experience. There I discovered a renewed peace in something I had held so much fear around. I am eternally grateful. I so love that we have her in our community and all the lives that I imagine she will touch with her healing presence.’
~Colleen Ericson, Conflict Resolution Specialist and Certified in The Work of Byron Katie, California

‘The most accurate way to describe my experience with Susanne is to say that it has been just Right There! She holds the space so naturally and comfortably that she allow’s me to explore whatever “tightness” may arise and at the same time I comfortably look at it and just let it proceed naturally. There is not any work involved, nor is there not, not any work involved. She merely encourages my own unique process in a deep, kind and loving way.’
~ Bill Sortino, Santa Fe

‘I enjoy Susanne Marie’s satsangs very much, in part because of their informal nature. She allows a lot of space for those who are present to share their own experiences and understandings and to dialogue with her or ask her questions. When she shares her insights they come from a true awareness of non-dual truths, based on direct experience, with no ego or pretension whatsoever. I also appreciate that she is very accessible, which is, understandably, not so much the case with those spiritual guides who are more known and sought after.’
~ Bill Drake, California

‘At first it was just Susanne’s photo on FB: a genuine and luminous smile. Then it was her writings on her website. Then it was those touching samples of her life story and condition. Then it was most natural and spontaneous to ask her for a talk. From then on, Susanne is a constant presence for me, reminding me of simplicity and openness with the freshness and purity of her approach. Transformation through presence is exactly what she lives, means and passes on to us all.’
~ Pema Shan, Italy

‘Susanne Marie is a loving help in dismantling my fantasies about being a someone (a me) on a wonderful spiritual path (goal). I love being with her.’
~ Niels Jørgen Larsen, Denmark

‘Working with Susanne has just been so easy.  Questions are greeted with gentle understanding, and answers come from genuine Knowing.  The inner world is subtle, and yet Susanne connects with those lost threads.  I feel very fortunate to have made this connection.’
~Scott, Australia

‘I first heard of Susanne Marie on YouTube. I had no questions but had the urge to talk, to see what happened if I was face to face with her. I found a warm loving person whom I seemed to know on my computer screen and through our conversations of simple, clear, direct, warm, loving words, an unconscious decision I’d made when very young shifted and I saw its effect and could let it go. I recommend speaking with Susanne Marie as her presence is unconditional love and the words spoken are helpful, powerful and true.’
~ Lynda Robinson, Australia

‘I first met Susanne Marie informally, at a local cafe for tea, shortly after seeing her interview-video with Rick Archer on Buddha at the Gas Pump. Being on the path of self-discovery, I asked Susanne for an appointment. We met in the coming days and talked privately for well over an hour and a half. Susanne is a good listener, and when she spoke to me, she spoke calmly, intuitively and directly from the heart. She was able to uncover areas of resistance in me that were so subtle, yet unseen, seemingly penetrating my very soul. I was able to literally feel the lights inside turn on. Susanne appeared so genuine, almost matter of fact, whereas I was moved to a state of awe. I am indeed indebted, and so very grateful for having met Susanne Marie.’
~ Frank Johnson, California

‘Susanne Marie’s has a wonderful presence and a sharp ear when holding Satsang. Everyone is invited into the conversation and compassionately held in the exploration.’
~ Carol Levov, California
