Profile Information

About Me:
I AM
I am the Dream Alchemist. I use the tools of the artist as alchemy to manifest my dreams and I help other women do that through my books, images, storytelling, performances, coaching and other services. I believe that we are all artists and our life is our masterpiece.

THE ARTIST
As an artist, I am a writer, visual artist, and performer. As a visual artist, I do illustrations, computer art, 3D live art installations, arts and crafts, web design and ebook covers. My performances are ceremonies for personal and community transformation where spectators become SpectActors to heal self and others through the experience of art. As a writer I am a poet, novelist, fiction and non-fiction writer. I have published half a dozen books and I am the CEO of ShamansDance Books.

THE SHAMAN
I am also a Woman of Power, or shaman and Wise Woman. I carry the Medicines of the Female Face of Power. I have created several life-enhancing systems based on Female Wisdom principles. I use the Female Way of Knowing to help women empower themselves and bring balance to their lives and to humanity. The manner in which I do this is through my public teachings, private consultations, life coaching and book writing coaching, as well as through my art performances and speaking presentations.

Wherever I go, I spread light and love, spice and laughter, truth and peace. My art is about life and my life is about art.

FEATURED IN:
I (or my work) have been featured in PBS and BronxNet television and numerous radio stations such as WBAI, WKCR (Columbia University Station), WADO (Spanish Radio), Brooklyn College Radio Station and La Nueva Onda 1190. I have taught creative writing for more than 15 years in the public school system and to adult women. My visual art has been featured in Longwood Art Gallery (Bronx Council for the Arts), Silver Whale Gallery (Soho), in community, cultural centers and colleges and in the web.

MY INVITATION
I invite you to believe in your dream and to champion your art. Art is the Medicine to war, depression and meaninglessness, three of our modern enemies. Art is a tool of power. It transforms energy and perception, and therefore, it transforms the world. Our society devalues art on one hand, but uses its language for marketing manipulation on the other. Therefore, when we offer life-affirming art and model the power of self-expression, we are empowering our people and enlightening the frequency level of human consciousness. We are agents of evolution.

Light and Love,
Maria Mar

Hola Maria Mar... about the video, I think anyone can see it (?) I suppose if you are looking to create a link (or post the video direct) you could copy the embed code directly from youtube.
Here's the link:

Maria,

In March 2010, there will be a series of events in Mexico City, Mexico, Los Angeles, California, and other cities, meant to be a ritual of mourning for the femicides in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua: Art as a pathway of opposition and resistance to violence.

We invite you to be part of this initiative of art activism. Below is the link to the blog we have dedicated to this and where you will find the Call for Entries. This invitation is open to all individuals, groups, organizations, artists and activists. The events in March 2010 will include awareness raising creative workshops, intervention actions, plays and performances and the exhibition of the art work received through the call for entries and the resulting art from the workshops. http://unaoracionporjuarez.blogspot.com/

For those who do not live in Mexico City or Los Angeles metropolitan areas, we invite you to organize your own community activity during the same month of March, 2010. It could be an Art Exhibit, a book discussion, a movie screening, a poetry reading, etc. We ask you to include the original title of this event “A Prayer for Juarez,” and to send us your schedule, and later on, photos and documentation, to be included in the blog.

To include your event, or for any kind of issue related, please write to us:
In the US: aprayerforjuarez@gmail.com
In Mexico: unaoracionporjuarez@gmail.com

Creating protest art transcends culture and gender. We are united in a larger community of like-minds and humanitarian goals. We thank you in advance for your dedication and your prayers for the women of Ciudad Juarez. NI UNA MAS!

PLEASE FORWARD THIS DATA TO PEOPLE YOU KNOW
WHO WOULD BE INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING

We Are San Francisco, a poem about the current state of our city

Wrote a poem to go along with my installation at Somarts called We Are San Francisco.What is San Francisco to you?Change, change. Shifting, shaping rapid, thoughtless, minimize, multiply, erase, recreate.Homogenized beauty, suburbs in the city. A rainbow of people, fade into shades of grey.Onslaught continues, more land, more money, more buildings, more restaurants, more evictions.This change to fear or face for those who stay, whose soul remains?Perhaps like the serpent we must shed our…See More
