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 who’ve trashed women throughout history.

“This is a savvy, smart performance that will make you think and rethink your collective history and connect it to your own personal struggle.” Corazon Tierra, author and women’s body esteem expert

This is a magical journey that champions women’s awakening to a new type of Female Leadership, the Butterfly Leadership; a phenomena that allows a woman to make waves that can change the world by doing what she loves.

“What’s a butterfly’s job? Gallivanting among the flowers, sucking their sweet nectar. That’s like me being paid for eating chocolate, dancing salsa and drinking red wine. I’ll take that job any day!” Maria Mar

 Invite your best friend and take a trip down memory lane ~our “herstorical memory”~ and discover what’s keeping you from owning your authority and stepping into your greatness.

Enjoy the vision of a  new generation of Butterfly Women of all ages launching their messages, sharing their gifts and  owning their power to influence the world in a heart-centered, self-fulfilling and collaborative way.

  • If you want to share your gifts to make a change in the world.
  • If you long to make a living from what you love.
  • If something holds you back from stepping into your greatness, don’t miss this show.

It will delight and enlighten you in equal parts.

  • What old story has been holding you back without you even realizing it? Are you a Caterpillar, working hard, but invisible and unrewarded? Learn how women have been domesticated as Caterpillars and what you need to do to release your Caterpillar Self and join the Butterfly Women who are creating a powerful change in the world.
  • Why many women are allergic to the word leadership, and how you don’t have to be bossy, competitive, self-sacrificing, world-carrying or a control freak in order to lead. Discover the Butterfly Leader, who changes the world by following her heart and doing what she likes. 
  • What is your Caterpillar Self? It is  that learned behavior that keeps a woman feeling insufficient, attached to struggle, plagued by self-doubt, resisting her own authority, staying invisible and playing small while she works her tail off.  Learn how to release the Caterpillar Self’s to become Butterfly Woman, so that you can illuminate the world with your brilliance while you live and work ecstatically.
  • Discover the 13 steps that take you from Caterpillar Self to Butterfly Woman.
  • What is the transformation possible for you? Can you really create the life you dream? Can you BE your radiance and allow it to illuminate the world?

  • Enjoy a spoken word performance that takes you into a journey from Caterpillar Self to Butterfly Woman with intelligence, beauty, magic and humor.
  • You will laugh, cry and share a wealth of insights, leaving the place uplifted, energized and enchanted into your own Goddess Blossoming!
  • You’ve come a long way, sister. Find out why you have not come ALL the way. What’s the ingredient missing from your Power Pie? Why are you still paid less than men? Why are women still missing from the big stages? Why are you not there yet?We take a look at Herstory to understand how our female psyche and even our genes may still be running in an old story and how to wake up so that we can do what makes us happy while we serve humanity in the 21st Century with a new leadership based on the Sacred Feminine School of Wisdom.
  • Join an uplifting ceremony to go over the first steps from Caterpillar Self to Butterfly Self. Start to release sacrifice and struggle and allow delight into your life ~becoming a Butterfly Woman, leading from delight.
