EVENT: You've Come a Long Way, Sister

You’ve come a long Way, Sister
It’s Time to Come ALL the Way
Join a new generation of women of all ages
who are leading from the Sacred Feminine,
creating waves of delight that change the world
This is a provocative, humorous and uplifting spoken-word performance that combines interactive theater, poetry performance and a transformational journey.
Created by storyteller-shaman Maria Mar (the Dream Alchemist) this performance has her trademark combination of liberating truth-telling, soul nurturing and refreshing humor.
What is “You’ve Come a Long Way, Sister?”

It is not a workshop.
It is not a class.
It’s nothing that adds more work to your to-do list.
It is an entertaining show created specially for you as a woman.
It is also a shamanic journey and ceremony to help you create the internal conditions for your success, happiness and embodied purpose.

See Maria Mar playing different characters, interacting with her Inner Selves… even her Inner Caterpillar! You’ll get hearty laughs… but don’t be fool by the fun. There’s powerful transformation going on beneath the humor.
Watch Maria Mar reveal patriarchy’s dirty laundry and laugh your heart out at her comments about the “serious” great men […]

Butterfly Woman Emergence

Butterfly Woman Emergence

Go from hard-working, struggling, hungry Caterpillar Self to Butterfly Woman, living and working ecstatically as she spreads her gifts to heal the world.
What is a Butterfly Woman?
A Butterfly Woman is a spiritual, creative woman who gathers her talents, gifts, passions, skills and experiences —including her wounds, challenges and “mistakes”— to embody her life purpose while earning a living from it. She is deeply committed to making a BIG change in the world.
An important part in Butterfly Leadership is that it comes through collaboration and self-expression, not through controlling resources, bossing others around or sacrificing the Soul to earn power or prestige.
Butterfly Woman leads in the same way that the butterfly serves. She follows her bliss, doing what she loves for a living. In so doing, she spreads wellbeing and empowerment so that others can do the same.

By following her delight, Butterfly Woman is the light that illumines human beings into an evolutionary leap and helps save the planet.

This woman deeply values her gifts and owns her self-authority. She commits her life to leaving a legacy and positively influencing […]

Self-assessment: Caterpillar or Butterfly, which one are you?

Is this You?
Are you trapped inside your Caterpillar Self or
ready to fly into your Butterfly Self?
Self-assessment tool

Each of the areas below has 10 items, each worth 1 point. The more points you have in any area, the more your Caterpillar Self is dominating and your Butterfly Self is being held back.

A. Power, Career and Money
1. There must be a key ingredient missing from your Power Pie because you really don’t feel powerful —though you know that you are not powerless.
2. You feel like the Brave Dutch Boy, perpetually with your finger in the hole, dealing with emergencies and crisis. How can you take time to strategize, to reflect on your career, to create systems for your business?
3. You can’t find a way to position yourself in your field. What is your uniqueness? What value do you bring to others? How are you different from other experts or service providers?
4. Being the boss for you seems about sending others to do the real job while you spend your time […]

Prayer: Help me grow wings

Sunday Prayer
Help me Grow Wings
Great Spirit in All that Is,
Help me grow my wings
like the Butterfly,
from within.
Bring me back home
when I march ahead,
collecting feathers
all over the place
of flapping madly
to change the winds
without feeling the flight.
Bring me back home
to prune the feathers
forming in the chrysalis
of my imagination.
Bring me back home
to feel the flight
in my delight.
Bring me back home
to gather the faith
the joy and the desire
in my heart.
For only from my heart
can I leap to soar.
Only from my Sacred Heart
can I open my wings
to change the winds of the world.

NOTE: This prayer holds wisdom from the acred Feminine School of Wisdom. Here’s a preview: When we want to fly to our dreams, many of us tries to find the means outside. We do things to change things in our external environment. But it does not work like that, and Butterfly shows us why. Our wings grow from within, through Internal Actions, like allowing, receiving, releasing, embracing. They grow through our change of perception and the release of old stories. They grow by us embracing and owning […]

Story: A New Instar for Melba

Friday Story:
A New Instar for Melba
As he walked out the door, suitcases in hand, Melba fell to the floor bawling.
“Why? Why me? Why now?” she cried in wolfish howls that shook her body.
“I’ve been trying so hard! And this is my reward?” she screamed, raising her fist to the sky.
When she exhausted her tears and her anger, she curled in her bed, still mumbling her questions.
“It seems that the more I work towards my growth, the smaller my world becomes,” she whispered as she nodded.
“It seems that the more I learn, the more pain I experience,” she mumbled as she fell into Dreamtime.
She was so hungry. She tried to move, but it was quiet difficult. All those legs! The multi-tasking was outrageous. It took her hours just to coordinate her legs so that she could give one step after the next. She was ravenous now. She crunched and munched her way to one leaf, then another. By the time nighttime came she had eaten several plants. Then the pains began. Horrible contractions crushed her from the outside. She got very […]
