About Your Guide

Peach and Gray Watercolor Background Ins

Mariana Bandera, Founder of Vivencia

Mariana Bandera is the founder of Passages. She guides families who wish to preserve and pass down legacies through life story interviews. Mariana is an anthropologist and archaeologist with a focus on how cultures around the world honor life and death. She has been drawn to the significance of storytelling as a means of transferring wisdom, which has led her to record many Vivencias for clients over the years. This was a tradition passed down through Mariana’s family, leaving her with priceless first-hand accounts of loved ones that she can share with her children one day. 

 

It has become Mariana’s mission to guide as many people as possible to find meaningful ways to pass legacies to the next generation. Her vision is to help our society pave the path to ancestry and allow our descendants to know their ancestors.
