With an interest in creating visually elegant solutions, Mari’s collaborations range from developing creative concepts, strategic research methods, digital interfaces, talent curation, network building, to workshop facilitation and leadership education; aspiring to use Design as a tool that propels us toward a more embodied future.

I host creative retreats around the world to experience a shift of consciousness and elevate our sense of interconnected humanity, trying to figure out how best to enact our creative potential together.
An embodiment-based cultural adventure in the heart of Mexico.
A healing journey for mind, body and being.
An opportunity to deepen the study of the energetic relationships with yourself, others and the world.
How do we tap into our body wisdom? how does our mind understand the sensory experiences felt by our body parts? How do we relate to the vehicle of our human existence?
Read my visual journal from current somatic and artistic research. Advanced inner technologies for embodied living, methods for gathering in community to do the deep work: body awareness, presence, rituals, constellations, sensing frequencies and dialoguing with spirit through dance.
What's the interplay of sound in our everyday awareness? How does the rhythm of a city impact our beings? Can we alter states of being with sounds?
Listen to my sound-journaling practice and transport your felt imagination into other frequencies. Find sonoric landscapes from my travels, spoken word pieces, guided meditations and curated playlists for delicious movement, traveling from stillness into flow.
These images speak to the archetypical wisdom that lays in our sacred feminine powers, they open windows to inner dimensions and give us permission to honor and arrive into our multi-dimensionality.
Every participant at La Mar Yoga Retreat received a booklet to guide their journey inwards; with inspiring imagery, poetry, sutras and detailed daily themes to accompany our journey of transformation. Get your free copy.
I host workshops, talks and creative retreats around the world to experience a shift of consciousness
and elevate our sense as interconnected humanity.
These are some of the photo stories and link to the recordings. Enjoy!
An interdisciplinary workshop for conscious movement to facilitate the exploration of dance disciplines as conduits to reconnect with body wisdom and embodied emotional literacy.
This sound journey was played live during the 'Sound & Consciousness' exhibit, inside a life-size cocoon, emulating nature's rhythms through sound collaging and guided visualizations.
We gather to learn to develop a relationship with the natural flow of life. Exploring what is it to cultivate spirit flow, become a sensual feminine and see the other women as your muse.
Cultivating the practice of self examination is a skill for the modern mind. Before we dare to share our selves, we need sacred time to acknowledge the truths that compound our lives. In this transition time coming back to Mexico, after 6 yrs of living abroad, I find that the way to advance in my path is to integrate my polarities and not fight with them: I choose to be creative and successful, spiritual and entrepreneurial, mystic and grounded, visionary and realistic, adventurous and present, bold and gentle, analytical and intuitive, a gatherer that loves solitude, a single woman at 33 who still believes in true love, a yogini who prays every morning and designs by night, a tantrica who sees auras and perceives past life's connections. I choose to integrate and embody the wholeness of me.
May this words become a seal for this intentions. And so it is!
