Women who have performed in the YoniVerse say:

Nicole1“One of the biggest ways I’ve grown in this experience is in sharing with other women and trusting those relationships.”   -Nicole Young
Brooke1“Sirena is really Masterful in seeing what we bring and then how we can bring more of ourselves. And where else to look to see what could possibly make this story the most alive and true for us.”     -Brooke March
Miss Zabie1“I’m speaking more in my real voice, than people who have known me for a loooong time!”   -Zabie Johnston



Sirena Andrea has been studying, performing and teaching the enchantment of Storytelling to artists, speakers, and entrepreneurs all over California for the past 15 years. She feels immense gratitude to Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Micheal Meade, Martin Prechetel and Daniel Bittleston for their generous mentorship and guidance.

She has seen again and again with her clients and in her programs how storytelling is the perfect vehicle to bring vitality and creativity to relationships and communities. At the same time giving us clues to what is truly meaningful and empowering in navigating this complex human experience.
