Per piacere abbi pazienza e continua a visitare questa pagina finche' non hai trovato l'evento che ti interessa. Informazioni in italiano. 

In my life I have been blessed with a richness of culture and experiences.  The U.S. is my third home, after Italy and India. In Italy I grew up, learned about friendship, and during my studies in Theater Anthropology I met my passion for Eastern and Indigenous practices and traditions. They led me to India where I witnessed individual and community healing take place through trance and dance, and indulged my deep love for traveling. When I moved to the US in 1987, I started exploring my own personal healing and ways to be of service to others. This led to more inner and outer journeys and to teaching: Ashtanga Yoga, workshops, SoulCollage® -  in private settings and in institutions such as JFK University where I am Adjunct Faculty. Since 1996 I have been in private practice as a psychotherapist in Watsonville, CA, where I also offer shamanic drumming sessions. Besides continuing to grow my SoulCollage deck, I paint and sculpt clay.

Description of SoulCollage® work

I use SoulCollage® individually and in group with clients as an adjunct to other clinical approaches, I also offer in-depth personal explorations and/or mentoring sessions to SoulCollage® beginners and veterans (in person, by phone or skype). Supervision consultations and Continuing Education Units are available for those who are using this method in clinical settings. The calendar for introductory workshops, group facilitation, in-depth workshops, trainings  and retreats is available on my website.  My SoulCollage® deck continues to 'take me places', inviting new explorations and themes, which I eventually turn into workshops or seminars. Some examples are the cards I started for Yogasanas (postures) and my own Bodynvocations as a personal exploration on movement; curriculums about managing chronic pain, overcoming domestic violence, and deepening our relationship with Animus and Anima. I have translated the Facilitator Manual into Italian to use in the Trainings I offer in my mother tongue, and I am translating more of Seena's materials into that language. I accept invitations to travel for facilitating a workshop, a training or a retreat, for which I can offer CEUs to MFTs and LCSWs in the state of California.

Trainer Statement

SoulCollage® is the most empowering method of self exploration and of integration of inner parts and insights I ever encountered in my personal journey and professionally. I have the privilege of witnessing its transformative and grounding gifts day after day in my work, and I receive them myself daily from reading my deck and giving voice to my cards. Making the cards is another blessing in itself because it offers such an opportunity to step out of time and and be in the rich cauldron that is play. I tell my clients and those who attend my groups that making cards is like gathering the ingredients for cooking a gourmet meal, giving them voice is doing the actual cooking, but reading them! That is when we get to eat and be nourished by our own creative work. And there is no end to this process, we can access it over and over again, it evolves with us and never stops to give back.

Mariabruna has been teaching the Four Suits since 1996, when she first met Seena Frost and embraced the method now known as SoulCollage®. She co-facilitated in-depth workshops and retreats with Seena for many years. Now she continues to spread the gifts of this method internationally. Her art, writings and teachings encourage creative expression to nurture self-knowledge, evolution, freedom and joy - knowing that any small personal step in our own growth and expansion contributes to the paradigm shift that affects us all.

Personal work with own SoulCollage® cards

This process has accelerated and deepened the integration of my psychological parts, of my life experiences, of the many colors of my emotions, of my connection with different people and cultures and of my spiritual aspirations. At personal retreats, when I surround myself with these mirrors of Life and Soul, I hear them play the complex and beautiful music of the Self. I am moved, inspired, challenged and deeply nurtured. I remember my Soul.  

Other Notes

Transforming Conflict / Embracing Change - A CD by Mariabruna Sirabella

If you are interested in doing advanced work with yourself, or in groups you facilitate, to transform conflict into positive change, this CD offers three guided journeys, based on Mariabruna's long study of yoga and shamanic practice. Learn more.

BodYnvocations: 16 movements based onthe Four Elements and their qualities. Useful as a personal practice, as a classroom tool and to move the energy during a workshop or a training. This CD is an introduction to the teachings of the School Of The Origins founded by Mariabruna in 2014. 

  • Durante questo Intensivo esploriamo la nostra Terra attraverso percussioni, suoni, immaginazione, creatività e intuizione con l'intento di scoprire, armonizzare e approfondire il nostro senso di interconnessione con il nostro ambiente e con i nostri simili (persone, piante e animali).

    L’Elemento Terra ci invita ad abbracciare la vita senza riserve e ci insegna presenza, armonia con l'ambiente e con gli altri, guarigione, chiarezza e discriminazione. Ci aiuta a vivere, sia a livello quotidiano che a livello esistenziale. Ascoltando e integrando i suoi insegnamenti attraverso vari “viaggi” a tema diventiamo più forti, più consapevoli, più “noi stessi”.

  • THIS EVENT IS FULL! - WAITING LIST ONLY

    Fire is constantly at work supporting the incessant churning of creation. It is responsible for “impulsing” every new cell and particle into being and for organizing their function in the service of life.

    During this workshop we will explore our Fire through drumming, sounding, imagination, creativity, and intuition with the intent of discovering, harmonizing and deepening our relationship with “beginnings”, with our creative libido, with our capacity to sustain our creativity and to organize it in pleasurable ways, and also with the gift of completing what we have started so that the cycle may start again without undue blockages.

    SoulCollage® is an integral part of this workshop. For complete details please go to my webite.
