Mary Beth Daniels
Nurturing and journeying alongside people and animals
Spiritual Guide, Ordained Minister, Alpaca & Donkey Whisperer, Counselor, Foster Mom, Author and Healer
Rev. Mary Beth Daniels (Rev. MB) is the lead soul midwife and founder of the Soul Celebration Sanctuary where others come to heal, to discover, to grow, and to transition into the next phase of their soul journey.
Former corporate marketing executive turned minister and animal whisperer, Rev. MB spends her days at Soul Celebration Sanctuary, a farm on Martha’s Vineyard, communing with her alpacas, donkeys, dogs, and ducks, and welcoming others to her Sanctuary to “be at home with the holy.” For Rev. Mary Beth, animals are profound spiritual teachers and guides, and spending intentional time in the presence of the Created and Creation helps us to connect to something deeper and divine in each of us- our true soul essence. Through spiritual counseling sessions, group gatherings, retreats, workshops, ceremonies, and alpaca & donkeys walks, Rev. Mary Beth invites individuals to transcend the ordinariness of life and experience the holy in all things. There is something mystical and magical about the Sanctuary and our beloved four-legged, winged and webbed companions that beckon one to discover and recover the truth of our spiritual identity.
She preaches, teaches, facilitates individual and group sessions, & guides seekers to soul transformation on her sacred land. Through her spiritual work, Mary Beth supports, nurtures, and leads others into deeper exploration of inner truth & wisdom as well as assists individuals in discovering their Sacred Purpose and strengthening their connection to Source. Overall, she journeys alongside people from life to death, acting as a transition teacher who honors the unique sacred contract of every individual soul. She also communicates the spiritual lessons of the alpaca through animal assisted therapy and shows how through life and death- by fully embracing the circle of life.
