2 Live Calls per Week
December 1- January 6
A deep cross-cultural exploration of our ancestor's views of Ritual and Ceremony.
We dive into the blueprint of our ancestors, going through anthropological and archaeological remembrance of the Sacred Ceremonies and Rituals that our Earthly Ancestors conducted. In past and present Earth-based cultures have significant ceremonies and rituals revolving around marking that transitionary period of our life—a moment to remember and reflect on as one changes and forms into what is being initiated.

Mariana Bandera Marin carries with her a deep curiosity about what makes us human on earth and has an affinity to ceremonies around the world that help preserve wisdom and remembrance. She is an anthropologist and archaeologist who has worked in California, Mexico, Menorca, Texas and New York, protecting the sacred lands of the people who have guarded them for millennia.
Under the guidance of her Mexica and Mayan mentors, she offers Cacao ceremonies and life story interviews for those who want to share their wisdom and heart with their family and loved ones as a form of Right of Passage.
In studying different cultures' Rites of passage, what surprised her is that they all have something in common. Their rituals to mark transformation are expressed in various forms, but at the root of it all, we see the same fundamentals-this is where the truths lie as blueprints.
With a humbled heart, we welcome you to join us on this magical journey in exploring our own natural rights of passage and instinctive ceremony to mark our metamorphosis.
