  1. Thank you for this beautiful and cleansing piece. My daughter died September 1, 2015 and this is the beginning of my birth month celebration. It was as My “GirlMicLeslie” gave me a spiritual gift instead of her usual physical gifts. She received Hospice care after we removed her from the ventilator and lived 35 hours. This has helped me today!

    1. Thank you so much for sharing your story with me. I’m very touched to know that even in her own death Maria has provided comfort for someone else. Many blessings to you on this path.

  2. What a beautiful tribute! Thank you for letting those of us who had not met her, know her

  3. Thank you so much for this. I, as well, only knew Maria briefly, over 10 years. Your podcast has reminded me that when we fully ‘show up’ for our own lives then miracles happen. Thank you for reminding me of Maria’s concept of interconnects and her sensitivity which she gleaned from her Japanese heritage. We truly should not be afraid to die.

  4. I met Maria through a friend around 2012 and saw her a handful of times over the course of that year. She was really inspiring in her dedication to serving others and in her knowledge of healing modalities, hospice work and always being ‘on the move’ with all the things she did. I last spoke to her after her move to Sedona and I’m greatly saddened to find out of her passing just a couple days ago. May God continue to bless her family and all who loved the amazing Maria Dancing Heart Hoaglund.Thank you for this tribute podcast that you did for her!
