About Maybel

I’m an immigrant, transdisciplinary artist, community maker, teacher, and creator’s counselor, dancer, healer and ritual maker. Basing my work in body intelligence; I combine arts, relationships and human awareness practices, ancestral and systemic focus, and the mystic to gestate experiences that outline our impact as the creators of our own lives, and put awareness on the dynamics that bind us to each others and to greatest intelligence. Im at the service of linking people in an intimate way, sharing practices that catalyze us toward unicity―the quality of being one of a kind. Evil and cruelty grow in ignorance and the sense of scarcity; that is why the pillars of my life are attention, compassion, and comprehension. I’m designing a community project, which brings together culture-makers, artists, healers, and visionaries. The home of it is Residencia in Brooklyn, (, and next, CAMP in Oaxaca, Mexico, (, that will be open in 2020 to host retreats and community experiments.
