 I AM Ma Devi. 

I am here to remind you that You are the Light of the World.


Unknown Friends,

I Am Ma Devi, also known as Mary Francis Drake. By spiritual training and ordination, I am a Mystical Christian Bishop. By academic training, I am a therapist and university faculty and have a Doctorate in Ministry. I have also had training and experience in yoga, meditation, postpartum doula work and hospice work.


Those are the credentials you might be interested in, but who I am in fact is a Servant of Love. Ma Devi is my spiritual Name and means ‘divine mother.’  In this given role, my mission is to love people by seeing them, hearing them, receiving them and uplifting them.

All of the offerings you’ll see here are meant for the purpose of alleviating suffering and lifting people into connection with the inner divine and their own soul’s purpose in life. Because of the wide breadth and depth of my experience and expertise, I have many tools with which to help you. 


If you are struggling or feeling discontent or unguided, I hope you will consider speaking with me about how I might help you find your way home to yourself and to peace.  Let’s talk about what has you unsettled and see if we can get you to a place where you feel relieved, revived and reinvigorated for a hopeful future.

Deep Peace to You,

Ma Devi
