Weeks 2-4: A Treasure Chest of Magical Stories

After week 1, you will open a Magical Chest of Stories and Story Journeys.

A Story Journey allows you to use the story as a map for a specific goal or transformation.

The Full Membership has two types of bundles:
  • Story Journey: Includes the story with one or more Story Alchemies that allow you to apply the story to your life.
  • Story Saga: One long story (equivalent to a full-length novel) filtered through weekly episodes. Each episode draws you into the story. You become the protagonist and undergo a ceremony of transformation based on the plot of the story. For example, in The Princess with the Empty Treasure Chest, you gain the magical objects that allow you to stand in your self-authority and become the queen of your life and the expert in your field.
During Weeks 2-3, you will receive two Story Journeys.

Each Story Journey includes:
  • The Story
  • One or more Story Alchemies that allow you to apply the story to your transformation.

Week 4

In Week 4 you will enjoy the first episode of a Story Saga. This will give you a taste of the power of Story Sagas.

Story Sagas are experiential novels where you become the protagonist and go through the same transformation she is going through. These story sagas are designed to empower, uplift and transform you while you play, create and gracefully participate in the imaginative journey created by the shaman.

In Week 4 you will participate in the Episode 1 of the Story Saga The Princess with the Empty Treasure Chest.

Through this Story Saga, you acquire magical objects in an induction into Female self-authority, confidence and leadership.

“Your brain stores reality in the form of story. It is the default format of your subconscious mind.
An experience becomes a Story Field; then a Neural Map that your mind applies to any similar situation.
The most graceful, creative and radical way to change your habits and recurring limitations is to find and change the Story Field that sustains them.” Maria Mar

What are Story Alchemies?

Story Alchemies are like the bottle where the genie lives. They allow the genie in the shamanic story to come out and help you apply the story to your  transformation.Depending on the story, there can be one to three Story Alchemies in a Story Journey. These Story Alchemies can include any or all of these features:

  • Journal writing questions to help you apply the wisdom in the story to your life.
  • Step-by-step processes and practices modeled from the story and taking you through a particular solution or transformation.
  • Multi-media tools, such as audio meditations or videos.
  • Videos with more guidance or a journey of transformation.
  • Self-assessment tools to gauge where you are at in your quest and what issues you need to address.
  • ARTspirations, which are eye-opening, heart-opening, mind-opening quotes with an image for stronger impact.
  • Art Journaling instructions and often videos leading you through a visual process.
  • ARTchemy(tm) Project that allows you to use arts & crafts as ceremony to quicken your transformation or manifestation. It may include collages, ceremonial tableaus, magical chests, dream baskets, movement, sound alchemies and other creative activities.
  • Ceremony or ritual actions for that transformation.
  • Poetry Journeys where a poem is illustrated with matching music to take you into a transformational experience.
  • Posters and other visual aid for your devices.

“Story Alchemy™ is the process of using story and creativity to transmute the lead of lack, wounds and limitations
into the gold of resourcefulness, personal power and possibilities.” Maria Mar

Why do I want to use Story Alchemy(tm)?

  • Play for transformation
  • Make change a graceful experience instead of a struggle
  • Employ your creativity on behalf of your dreams
  • Activate your faith. Give it arms and legs to reach your dreams and goals.
Story Alchemy(tm) allows you to use a shamanic story to change an aspect of your life that needs a transformation. Shamanic stories are written as instant experiences of transformation. They walk you through experiential understanding.

Stories are the only imagined structure that can lay down actual memories. When you read or hear a story, your brain frequency entrains with the storyteller and you experience the story as a real event. You store it in your subconscious mind not as information, but as experience. This allows you to use a shamanic story to create new Story Fields that can lay down new Neural Maps to change your life.

The Story Alchemies included in the Story Journey allow you to take the Story Fields embedded in the story, apply them to your unique persona and situation and then lay them down as a new reality for yourself.

Storyteller-shaman Maria Mar creates shamanic stories specifically focused on a transformation needed to meet a specific challenge and attain the best solution.
