Earth Lodge® Publications is dedicated to publishing quality educational and self-help materials for holistic, intentional living. At Earth Lodge®, we care about the health of the entire planet. We began our company in 1998 providing herbs for animals, and over time our products and offerings have expanded and evolved to meet the needs of you, our clients, and an ever evolving earth.
Maya Cointreau, our owner and editor-in-chief, is passionate about all avenues of healing. An avid seeker of truth and knowledge, she is particularly interested in the merger of science and spirituality in the field of quantum physics, and its impact upon quality of life.
Maya has more than two decades of experience in the publishing and vibrational healing fields. She is an Usui Reiki Master attuned in Karuna Reiki and the Iris Healing Method, along with having rigorously studied herbalism, core shamanism, flower essences, polarity therapy, traditional western naturopathy, homeopathy, crystal healing and aromatherapy. She co-owned and managed Hygeia, a holistic health and metaphysical wellness center for people in New Milford, CT, for five years and now owns Enchanted Realms, a new age center, also in New Milford.
She has written and published more than ten books, and was managing editor of DCC Magazine, a magazine with a circulation of more than 60,000 readers. She also writes for journals including Natural Horse, Equine Wellness and The Sedona Journal. When all her other work is put away, Maya runs an online short story competition each year with her good friend, Monisha Saldanha Banerjee. Momaya Press is now in its 12th year, and it has become a powerful way for aspiring authors to connect with real editors and professionals in the publishing industry.
