10 Ways a Shamanic Story Helps you in your Real Life
Stories allow us to travel, time and again, outside the circumscribed spaces of what we believe and what we think possible. It is these journeys – sometimes tenuous, sometimes exhilarating – that inspire and steel us to navigate uncharted territories in real life.” Elizabeth Svoboda, author of “What Makes a Hero?” in “The Power of Story” ~Psychology Magazine
What will I experience?
- Enjoy inspiring shamanic stories with strong female protagonists that overcome great odds. As the protagonist discovers the source of her troubles and transmutes her obstacles into stepping stones to her dream… so do you!
- When you are in the middle of a story, haven’t you wished you could ask the author a question or talk to her about how the story brings you memories or insights? Well, now you can! You meet the author every month for a rich conversation.
- When you read stories with deep spiritual wisdom and powerful human archetypes, don’t you wish that you could get inside the story, become the protagonist and have the same powerful transformation? Magical stories like J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter, Paulo Coehlo’s The Alchemist or the stories in Clarissa Pinkola’s Women Who Run with the Wolves are full of archetypal wisdom that your soul recognizes. But how do you actually use it in your real life? That’s something you’d often wished you’d know. Well, now you can!
- Walk into your own greatness as you walk in the shoes of the protagonist. Enter the quest for each chapter of the Story Saga and download the Medicine Stories for some of the storybooks. You not only discover the shamanic tools and wisdom in the magical stories. You will learn how to apply this wisdom to your life to create what you want.
“I could relate to every page, and the little bits that I would get to read each day made a difference in my decisions. It was almost like I was going through, on a small scale, what I was reading at the same time.” Debra
- Quicken your manifestation. Deepen your insights into your situation. Discover how to shift your perception to change your world. See your problems with new eyes to find the solution already present in them.
- Transform your change into an exciting, magical Quest.
- Enjoy journal writing and creative projects to accelerate your transformation.
- Join a community of spiritual, creative women who are questing for their dreams, who love magical stories and are making magic in their real lives. Get inspired, supported and validated.
No one grows alone. If you seek to do things differently you will find naysayers, friends who fill you with doubts and mediocre people pressuring you to conform. Getting a community that supports you and a guide that encourages you is essential to change your life and create what you desire. (Men are welcome to the Story Lovers and Quester Levels)
- Discover a treasure chest of shamanic tools that you can apply to solve your real life problems.
The universe is made of stories, not atoms” Poet Murial Rukeyser
What kind of stories will I get?
Fantasy stories * Shamanic stories * Modern fairy tales * Women’s stories * Inspirational stories* Dream Stories * Real-life turned fiction stories * Quest-thru Stories…
…and stories from the Sacred Feminine School of Wisdom to awaken the Goddess in you.
Psychological, organizational or social transformation is usually preceded or accompanied by a change in the story field governing that system. It is … non-productive to try to change forms and habits without changing the story fields that hold them in place. Once the story field is changed, subsidiary patterns tend to realign rapidly.” The Co-intelligence Institute
Who is the author of these stories?
Hi, I am Maria Mar, a PBS-TV featured storyteller and internationally known shaman. I live my life 24/7 as a transformational adventure, exploring ways to transmute pain into power, negative into positive, obstacles into possibilities… and I do this through the alchemy of story, writing and arts & crafts. Here’s what you need to know about me:
I breathe out stories. I write them in a state of grace, channeling strong female archetypes and powerful insights. I create delightful stories that are as potent as an alchemical elixir.This is my greatest blessing and I’d love to share it with you.
I am a prolific author with dozens of stories, storybooks, novellas and a novel ~as well as personal growth books and products~ published. I have a line-up of a dozen stories at different stages; from the Story Saga I’m writing right now to the storybooks in the oven or waiting for publication.
What this means to you is that you will be the first one to read my stories, hot from the oven of my imagination. You will become my partner in creation, having a conversation with me and with my magical characters every week.
I also want you to know that my stories are not magical in the sense that we usually say about fantasy. Yes, they have the magic fiber of a good yarn. But they also have deep pockets of wisdom and alchemical insights built into them because I create stories that ignite transformation. I have more than 20 years of experience as a Transformation Artist, engaging art as a vehicle for change. I have helped women in four continents to change the story of their limitations to a story of their brilliance illuminating the world. In the Story Lovers Club I want to inspire you to write the story of your brilliance every day.
Oh, yes, and something else that is important for you to know: I walk my talk! I’ve not only worked more than 20 years empowering others. I’ve done as many years of personal healing using storytelling and art. I’ve conquered eating disorders, smoking addiction, relationship addiction, poor self-esteem, abandonment issues, wars between creativity, spirituality and money and even homelessness ~all using shamanic story to change my old stories, become my dream and embody my purpose.
So when you read one of my stories, you will feel the potency of a magic beyond bubbles and sparks. It is a deep soul-river flowing through the words, emerging into your subconscious. Why? Because I embed my stories with shamanic secrets from the Sacred Feminine School of Wisdom.

At the Quester Level you get all the above, plus:
- Weekly Story Quest Blueprints that allow you to quest through the story at your own pace in the privacy of your home. You receive those blueprints directly into your inbox once a week.
- Click on the post, and you will have access to create your own post with your answers to the journal writing questions, and/or your questions about the shamanic secrets.

- Each chapter includes a yummy treat, such as audio meditations, self-assessment tools, creative projects or ceremonies to explore the wisdom in that chapter, absorb it and apply it to your life.
Expressing emotions through words may speed healing. Writing down your thoughts and feelings after a traumatic event can actually make physical wounds heal faster, according to a study from New Zealand researchers.” Amanda L. Chan, Huffington Post
All of the above plus:
The Creator Level combines journal writing and arts and crafts with private guidance and support to journey through the story as a path for the transformation you need in your life right now.

- Now you can enjoy a private mentorship at a fraction of the cost through sharing your online journal privately with Maria Mar every week and getting personalized feedback, tools, insights and guidance.
- In addition to questing through answering the journal writing questions, you also get an ARTchemytm Project for each chapter. Make your transformation fun while you boost your creativity through an arts and crafts project using different art modalities, from visual arts and creative writing to acting and dancing. Use art as a ceremony to quicken, deepen and quantum leap your transformation.
- Get weekly Guidance, support and customized shamanic tools. Invite Maria Mar to read your journal entry for more insights, support, tools and “stickability”… and see your transformation happening in real time!

“My vision for this world is one in which people get up in the morning bouncing with passion and purpose because they are doing what they love and putting it into service on behalf of humanity. They are dancing to enrich the world, writing stories to inspire others, sharing their message to educate and illuminate, sharing their experience and expertise to empower and sharing their presence to help all of us evolve. There is nothing more powerful than a meaningful life in which work is ecstasy because you are doing what you love and what you came here to do. To help create this world, I create Butterfly Waves with other Butterfly Leaders, women who want to use their spiritual and creative gifts to make a big difference in the world. If this is you, I’ve made this level for you.” Maria Mar

I would suggest that the need for art lies at the very heart of the world’s most intractable problems and it is through the arts that we can best experience the transformation that brings about progress in all areas of human endeavour….We cannot stay within the confines of the problem. Rather, we must work from the love within us to break through the barriers that prevent us from singing, dancing and expressing our highest vision for humanity.” Caroline Watson, Director and Founder of Hua Danand and Chair of the Global Agenda Council on Role of the Arts in Society.
