About the Podcast Guest:
Marialuisa is an International Art Therapist, Somatic Movement Specialist, Author, Mythologist, Educator, Researcher, and Performer. Marialuisa personifies feminine power.
She is the creator of “Mythic Life: Embodying Wisdom, Beauty, and Courage”. Mythic Life is the fruit of over 20 years of practice where she integrates somatic movement, dance, archetypal psychology, mythology, ecology, and expressive arts to create possibilities for awareness, healing, growth, and transformation. She wrote an unpublished collection of academic essays, Somaphilia: Re-membering the Soul and the Aesthetics of Being, which she is preparing for publication.
Born and raised in Guadalajara, Mexico, Marialuisa has lived in many places in Mexico and the U.S., which has taught her to navigate cultural differences and enriched her view of the world.
Her professional experience in psychology, somatics, and the arts spans over 20 years and includes work in education, private practice, and community intervention.
Marialuisa got her M.A. in Engaged Humanities with Emphasis in Depth Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute. She is a part of the core faculty for the certificate in Movement-based Expressive Arts Therapy at the Tamalpa Institute in California where she supervises advanced students. In addition, she teaches graduate courses as adjunct faculty at Southwestern College in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Since 2014, Marialuisa has served on the ISMETA board of directors. She is also a registered Expressive Arts Therapist through the International Expressive Arts Therapy Association, and a registered Somatic Movement Therapist and Educator from ISMETA (International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association.) Currently, Marialuisa is board president and co-chair of the professional standards committee. She enjoys collaborating with the ISMETA board of directors to grow the field of somatic movement and advance the profession.
In our conversation, Marialuisa shares the powerful story of the formation of a Feminine Archetypal Trinity, consisting of mythological figures: Inanna, Persephone, Demeter, Hekate, and Psyche. As these feminine figures constellated, each bearing their unique gifts, this union became the catalyst for the initiation into the feminine consciousness.
