WE GUIDE YOU INTO BRINGING WHAT YOU HOLD SACRED TO THE FUTURE. 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our search is grounded in the vision that our descendants will know their ancestors.

We want to pave the path for healing through self-reflection and intimacy within families and communities. 

Your story is part of the collective story of humanity. We are all here on this earth for a purpose, to pass wisdom on to the next generations, and essentially to become Ancestors.  As we help you share your wisdom with our descendants, we help you create an intergenerational link so that the next generation can grow and improve the world around them.  We help bring intention to your relationships through storytelling.

OUR STORY

Vivencia was created by Mariana Bandera, who is an Anthropologist & Archaeologist that has an affinity to the past, shaping who we are and whom we want to be. She has a deep connection to the ceremony of death throughout all cultures and how memories are preserved. Vivencia was her way of bringing a unique take on how humans can consciously preserve lessons & history with modern tools available. 

After her grandparents introduced her to this concept when they recorded their own life stories, Mariana understood the importance and wanted to help others memorialize their loved ones. More than that she wants to bring a deeper meaning and connection that we have to our past and how we want to prepare for the end of our own lives. The process can bring comfort to anybody that cares how they will be remembered and how they will be included in the future even when they're gone.

Our organization has been creating timeless gift packages for families for years. Through expert experience in interviews and anthropological concepts, we have created a unique way to pull the most important information that can have a lasting effect on how we learn about and remember our past.
