Sarah McMahill

song and wellness weaver, owner and sole proprietor

BCMT, ACMT, ASCAP, IAWM, IEA Accredited Professional

Sarah McMahill created Wellness Weaving in 2023 which weaves together Kintsugi Studios & Publications (started in 2021), Heart to Hands Myofascial Massage (started in 2004), and The Dragonfly Enneagram Center (started in 2017).

Wellness Weaving is about understanding and experiencing how our hearts, bodies, and minds are woven together through expression, bodywork, and mind-gardening.

I am a self-proclaimed song and wellness weaver, an openly queer composer/musician, poet/author, myofascial massage therapist, enneagram coach/educator, and multi-media artist. I started studying music education at Doane College in Nebraska where I had two music scholarships (voice and clarinet). I had a few experiences during my two years at Doane that influenced my decision to transfer to Southwest MN State University (SMSU) where I received my BA in theatre, English, and art. I then attended Saint Paul College where I received my certificate in massage therapy. I knew I wanted to specialize in myofascial release therapy (MFR), so I took many seminars taught by John F. Barnes. I started learning about the enneagram while I was at SMSU but it wasn't until 2011 when I had an experience at a myofascial release seminar that changed the direction of my career. I received enneagram teacher training from Anne Murée, Dynamic Enneagram using Neuro-Linguistic Programming Certification with Tom Condon, teacher training through Moving Forward Australia, and am an IEA (International Enneagram Association) Accredited Professional.


Recognizing the Weave

At the Women's Health seminar in 2011 John Barnes was holding a plastic sacrum to demonstrate a technique. As I was looking at it, I was struck by the realization that the shape of the sacrum is very similar to the shape of the enneagram. Upon further investigation I discovered other parallels between the enneagram and the anatomy of the  body. (I'm working on a book going into more detail on the subject.) Over the years I had been practicing conversations with my mind and my body not realizing that I wasn't tending to my heart in a way that it needed. Even though I had an outlet through playing the clarinet in an orchestra and singing in choirs, I still felt like that something was missing. I met Roland Legge at an International Enneagram Conference in the summer of 2019. He became a very good friend and we decided to start teaching online enneagram workshops together. (He's based in Yorkton, Saskatchewan.) As we were prepping for one workshop, we had an idea to include music. One of the things that came up in our conversations was how to deal with copyright issues. I suggested that since I do have a background in music that I could write and record songs for the workshop. The answer to what my heart needed came through when I was composing those songs. The act of creation and being able to express myself was what was missing in tending to my heart. Realizing this and tending to it was the inspiration behind the creation of Wellness Weaving.
