What is Story Alchemy and why do you need it?

“Story Alchemy™ is the process of using story in combination with creative projects and actions to transmute the lead of lack, wounds and limitations into the gold of resourcefulness, personal power and possibilities.”   Maria Mar

 Story Alchemy(tm) allows you to use a shamanic story to change an aspect of your life that needs a transformation. 

The shamanic stories written by Maria Mar here activate the experiences of transformation. They walk you through experiential understanding.  

Stories are the only imagined structure that can lay down actual memories. When you read or hear a story, your brain frequency entrains with the storyteller and you experience the story as a real event. You store it in your subconscious mind not as information, but as experience. 

Therefore, a shamanic story has the power to be an experiential transformation instead of a how-to instruction that then you need to implement alone over some time.

At difficult times when our mind and nervous system are overtaked, it may be difficult to assimilate logical instructions, let alone figure out how to implement this in our unique situation. The result is that trying to learn anything new becomes overwhelming and we give up!  

The Story Alchemy included in the Story Journeys allows you to address issues through storytelling, ceremony, Artchemy(tm) ~ art as alchemy for life~ and gentle but life-changing emotional support.

Through this fun, creative activities you can apply the insights, Medicine and shamanic tools in the story to your unique personal situation through in a relaxed way that at the same time activates your creative genius for problem-solving. 

The weekly live events at the membership level allow you to practice these activities in community and with Maria Mar's personal support, lay down new habits, new neural pathways, new energy frequencies and patterns and ultimately creating a new reality for yourself.

The Way Creative Women Learn and Change

 I've worked with women in three continents and for more than 5 decades.

I have discovered that creative, innovative, out-of-the-box women (I call us Butterfly Women) like to learn with ease and grace through their Feminine Gifts.

  • We love a process that addresses our emotions organically, allowing them to flow and change gracefully.
  • We need experiential learning. Many of us do not have time or do not like to read how-to stuff then have to implement it.
  • We talk the language of imagination, emotion, passion, creativity and embodiment. We want a path to transformation that speaks our language.
  • We work best in community or privately but with opportunity to join others for creation, celebration, story sharing and other events that help us with change.
  • While men are wired to follow logical steps to action whenever confronted with critical moments, women are in fact wired to share stories and emotions with friends until we've co-created a supportive space that reveals a solution or clarifies our options.
  • Personal Development has unique challenges for women that we need to address in order to heal from Historical Female Gender Trauma, family karma and come up with gender-related strategies in a patriarchal society.

For this reason, my Story Journeys are designed especially for you, Butterfly Woman.

What can you do with Story Alchemy(tm)?

  • Play for transformation. It's already hard enough to change. Why make it difficult, especially during hard times.
  •  Make change a graceful experience instead of a struggle.    
  • Employ your creativity on behalf of your dreams.    
  • Activate your faith. Give it arms, legs and wings to reach your goals.
  •  Heal your self-perception to see and feel your true value.
  • Re-frame success to harmonize with your values and feminine gifts.
  • Redefine power from patriarchal dominance values to feminine-friendly and heart coherent values that heal your resistance and self-sabotage.
  • Come up with new ways of seeing and responding to your situation to transform problems into portals to your best possibilities.
  • Not just have tools. Use them to change your habits, vibrations and identity. Become your dreams, desires and visions!
  • There are as many Story Journeys here as needs and dreams you have!
