How long have you been a Boston Business Women’s Member?

Less than a year.

Were you born and raised in Boston? If not, what brought you here?

I spent my childhood growing up in Connecticut, but as a dual US/Irish citizen, I was inspired to take advantage of the opportunity to study medicine in Ireland after college. I returned to the States in 1999 to study psychiatry in Boston, and I’ve called the Boston area home ever since.

Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

Through my business at MaureenMagauran.com I utilize the best of eastern and western medicine to help clients bring their health into balance so they can truly thrive. I use a range of tools including meditation, energy work, somatic therapy, mindfulness, and therapy training to help clients find the unique combination that will help them flourish and shine. I was born into a family that had produced 6 generations of doctors, so as a child growing up, it seems I was almost destined to become an M.D.. After attending Yale University, I studied medicine in Ireland and went on to specialize in psychiatry. It was after seeing ways that traditional western medicine was falling short that I decided to incorporate more holistic and eastern methodologies into my offerings to help clients get results.

What would your clients say about you and your company?

My clients have described me as credible, earnest and committed, which is certainly how I endeavor to show up in every client encounter. They’ve also described me as heart-centered and passionate, because they recognize how I bring so much care and enthusiasm to every client relationship. I’m so grateful to be recognized for the work I’m doing in the world and glad it’s impacting my clients health and lives.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

As a girl, my mother used to tell me “There’s no such word as can’t.” This empowered me to believe I can do anything, and I apply this wisdom to serving my clients. I love encouraging them to pursue the best version of themselves, even when circumstances make it feel so challenging. I see every obstacle from a perspective of possibility.

What is your favorite book?

I’m currently reviewing “The Wild Woman’s Way,” a forthcoming title from Michaela Boehm set to release in August 2018. I’m enjoying how she writes about ways to connect with the body in feminine, empowered ways. Her message parallels one I share with my clients as I encourage them to truly connect with their bodies, their sensuality, and pleasure in life.

What is your secret weapon? An app, a tool, a organization method, anything?! (Can be a personal or professional life tool)

My secret weapon is a technique I use with my clients called IST or the Inner Space Techniques of meditation. It allows you to quiet your mind, connect with your body and access your intuitive wisdom for healing and self confidence.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

``Play more, and have fun!`` In fact, I give that advice to my current self and to my clients frequently! There’s so much we gain by embracing playfulness and fun. It helps us feel more present in the moment and to appreciate what we have and who we are.

How do you enjoy your free time?

I love to relax at the ocean with my family- my two young boys, my husband and our new puppy girl, River.

What is something that not many people know about you?

While I love public speaking and enjoy social functions, I also enjoy frequent periods of introversion and introspection. I enjoy being alone and savor silence. Meditation helps me access this silence even when my day-to-day is hectic, as it helps me experience a brief space of inner silence, peace and rejuvenation. I wouldn’t feel whole and complete without frequent periods of silent alone time, so I’m grateful whenever it comes.
