Maryjane is a modern day sage with immense wisdom to share. She walks her talk as an earth lover and guardian with great integrity and brings a fresh and deeply needed approach to resolving the challenges we face globally.

Rooting herself in ancient, universal wisdom, she transmits a new possibility for our relationship with earth.

I would recommend her writings, courses and programs to all activists, change-makers and anyone wanting to wake up to a more empowered and vibrant relationship to life.

The opportunities to experience joy, intrigue and magic have multiplied since I met Maryjane. I love her enthusiasm and spirit. It is infectious.

Just listening to her podcasts and videos is like being guided into hidden worlds by a fairy.

What I find most intriguing is that the journeys with Maryjane somehow transform real life in a very practical yet magical way. Birdsong is one of those magical ways.

Between the noise, rush and anxiety of our world,

unnoticed and yet with us everywhere…. is everyday magic.

The birds, Nature’s messengers can take you there.

I will show you how to tune into them,

even in the middle of a city

My name is Maryjane. I am the founder of ‘Birdfriend’ course and hostess of the podcast ‘Know You Are Earth’.

13 years ago I sewed a yurt and took my children to live remotely so that they could be educated by Nature.

Deep in the middle of nowhere, I could feel the birdsong affecting me and I started to wonder… “What would be the effect on us as individuals, as a culture, as world creators if we tuned into the birds rather than the constant news of daily disaster? How would we think, feel, behave, towards each other and the world?”

I began to research and discovered some amazing things which confirmed my own experiences.

Researchers have discovered that listening to birdsong really does change the way we think and feel about each other and the world around us….and even changes the way we behave, becoming more generous and thoughtful!!!

But it goes even deeper.

Developing a connection with a wild animal or bird actually creates a energetic link between us and the wild world.

I went to extreme lengths to close the gap between my family and the natural world, but you do not have to do that!

I have created a simple step by step course to:

  • discover exactly where in your daily life there is a bird watching you
  • how to create a relationship that will never let you down,
  • a relationship with no hidden agenda 
  • just the joyful certainty of endlessly cycling Nature.

All my life, I have felt grief and despair about the way we treat each other and Earth. 

I knew that the changes we long for have to happen on the inside first.

I am here to help us shift our identity, to arouse our memory that We Are All Part of Nature so that we can live with a deep love,and awe for the wonder of the Life we are.

Hello, I am Raquel and it has been very special to me to deepen my connection with birds.

At first I was I bit indecisive which bird would offer his attention but relaxing was the key for letting reality present at her own time 🙂

Welcome dear Blackbird and thank you for this journey.

And thank you for this lovely feather you left just below the front door of my car. 


Develop a relationship that will never let you down

 a relationship with no hidden agenda,

that sings with joyful certainty

of the Great Song of Life

Stress on Earth is increasing…

Science proves that birds remind us

of what we really need to know….

we are part of Nature.

Now more than ever before, this is crucial to remember. 

Let’s remember together…
