About
"I am interested in HEART CENTERED WORK, sharing LOVE and JOY, creativity and appreciation. If you have a job like that for me, let's talk!"

Whether she is teaching mindfulness, screaming stress releases, Japanese grammar or how to sing Disney songs Mariko the sensei maintains her ability to captivate the room with her energy which comes in various forms. California born and educated, she has worked as a credentialed high school teacher in Los Angeles, received a Masters of Education from UCLA, teaching as an ESL teacher from ages 0-90 in Tokyo where she migrated for 3 years. She found that she was even using her years as a musical performance artist in live band and theater settings to teach 20 toddlers in Japanese, her second language.

"This was my toughest audience at first, but once you've had to hold a room with screaming babies competing with your voice teaching in your non native language, you definitely feel like you can speak in front of any audience. Teaching or Speaking is a performance. Improv training (humor) is just as important as content knowlege, because each day and each group is different. Expect the unexpected."

Mariko became fluent as an adult in Japanese, rigorously studying while living in Tokyo for 3 years even though she first learned the language at the age of 12. She still studies daily, currently working towards interpreter JLPT N2 level. I would be a Japanese speaking MC or brand ambassador to pronounce names and words with knowlege of Japanese business etiquette so you can make a lasting impression.

“One of my callings is to help other Japanese descendants come home to their language and culture, especially if it was not taught or practiced.” Her keynote speech inspires those who are called to explore their ancestory, inspires those to push past judgment and perservere to create one's own path but warns those who might be fantasizing about a land that not reflect the current country's reality.

She specializes in topics of Tantra, Meditation, Spirituality, Energetics, Self Care/Love, Underground Japanese History/Culture, Authentic or Conscious Communication, Breathing Techniques, Holistic Recovery from Addiction or PTSD, Divine Masculine/Feminine Workshop, Harm Reduction Skills, The 5 LOVE LANGUAGES, Awakening the Divine Within, STRESS MANAGEMENT, ENERGETIC HEALING FROM TRAUMA, and much more!

CHAKRA SINGING BOWL HEALING SPAS/PRESENTATION/PERFORMANCE/WORKSHOP. ORDAINED WEDDING PRIESTESS. Secular Tantric, Spiritual Sacred Union Ceremonies.

Presentations are usually personalily designed with songs sung on select theme/powerpoint. Gameshows can be created around a specific topic.

She is a former GSA (Gay Straight Alliance) teacher organizer from her high school teacher years, herself bisexual and non binary (she/her) identified queer. She is able to workshop with pop music karaoke sing along themes of identity, body dysmorphia, coming out, being bullied, gender and sexual orientation.
