Maria Sophia Rose is an Arts Counsellor who facilitates sacred space for women to connect with their creative power. She is the founder of Ansisters Therapeutic Arts Circles and the Director of Heart 2 Art community Arts. She has a background in the Performing Arts/Ritual Theatre and is particularly interested in creating simple ceremonies that are all inclusive. She works with Mindfullness through Mandala making and often uses sacred Cacao to help people relax and connect.
Rites of passage and threshold moments such as Bridal blessings, weddings, baby blessings and naming ceremonies. Also, girls coming of age/menarche or funerals. These sacred times in our life have been traditionally celebrated through a community gathering and Maria specialises in facilitating mandala making ceremonies/workshops. This is through the medium of the ELEMENTS and could include a fire mandala, a flower mandala, sand, stone, clay etc…..whatever feels resonant and relevant for the specific occasion.
Song is a very important part of this and I often work in harmony with a natural voice practitioner such as Susie Prater or Sophia Ephtimou.
