Magical Warrior Women

Magical Warrior Women

Magical Warrior Women is a spiritual creative collective for women. We share a day of creativity, spirituality, love, support, inspiration, activism and internal / collaborative growth. It’s a place to nurture any ideas you have, share what inspires you, learn with other women and grow together. This is a monthly occurrence. We are strong, powerful and magic! When we come together we can move mountains ! We intend to achieve great things in activism, charity, current affairs, human consciousness and inner transformation. Women of ALL AGES are welcome (and encouraged!) to join us.

We can accommodate women coming from far away to stay overnight. This weekend and EVERY weekend we do is on a DONATION basis, because we want this to be accessible to all and we really are doing this for the love 🙂

This month we are beginning our journey to heal the inappropriate female energies that hold us back and prevent us from fulfilling our potential

Airbnb

 This is a new addition to what we offer……..
Airbnb
Great Mongeham, United Kingdom

Up to 8 guests  2 rooms available. Deal is a delightful seaside town with a thriving music scene. We are close to world heritage site of Canterbury with …

We began offering Airbnb  May 2015-it has been a great experience.  We have met some lovely people who we look forward to meeting again.  So this year we have decided to extend the service and offer Shamanic/holistic treatments as part of your stay.  There is a possibility of making a drum-for more info see the Drum Birthing page-but on a one to one basis or in small private group.  The chance to experience one or more of the Shamanic/holistic treatments we have here whilst enjoying all the local delights that Deal and the surrounding area has to offer with its convenient  links to London and the Continent.  We look forward to welcoming you, your family and/or friends for an holiday experience with a difference.

   

Seersha and her lovely family were the perfect hosts. They made us feel comfortable and at ease the minute we walked through their door which was perfect as this was the first time we had used airbnb and with a large, young family(4 children under 8!) this was just fantastic. Also the journey had been an arduous one and the welcome we got really went a long way to easing the stress of the journey, we had arrived a lot later than anticipated and Seersha made us feel like we were one of the family, instantly making us feel welcome and at ease. We enjoyed our stay so much that we actually stayed again on the journey home. This is a Great place to stay especially if you have young children, Seersha goes more than the extra mile to help you, make you feel at home and is truly one of life’s great characters, she was so caring and compassionate with us and our family – the perfect host, we thoroughly loved our stay, the children didn’t want to leave.

We loved the welcome and were instantly put at ease, which can be difficult when you have 6 cheeky children excited for their holiday and running around a beautiful, very old house. We were made to feel like old friends or family members, never feeling out of place, we all got a great night’s sleep, awoke refreshed, well taken care of and look after in a truly personal way. Might I also add that Seersha is fantastic with children, our friends have a 9 month old baby and Seersha was always on hand to ask if there was anything the baby needed, “should I hold baby whilst mum sterilises the bottles”? just great, a service you would never get at a b’n’b or hotel!

Thank- you Seersha and family

Seersha made us feel at home from the moment we arrived, by inviting us to join her BBQ with friends and giving us two room options. We had very little time in Deal due to late arrival after a horrendous journey. Seersha and her husband both gave us great advice about making the best of our short time there and giving us excellent directions for our journey to catch the ferry at Dover the following day. An unexpected bonus was the vegan friendly breakfast options.

From Vereena UK

Seersha communicated with us well to ensure a timely welcome on arrival and answered our questions throughout our stay. We enjoyed learning about the very historic house and area. If you enjoy the countryside and still access to a town, this is a great location. Also, if you need to catch an early ferry from Dover the next morning. Seersha was a gracious host providing tea and other help especially for the children. The dogs and cat were friendly and the house was clean. We enjoyed Deal and the rest of the neighbourhood. It was great to have a parking space off the road. We really enjoyed meeting you and John. Thanks for the hospitality and tea tree oil treatments. They really helped.

A Celtic Quest

A Celtic Quest ~ The Mysteries of King Arthur’s Court ~ One day introductory workshop

celtic quest

For centuries the stories of King Arthur and the Knights and Ladies of the Round Table have held us in thrall.

When the Plantagenet Kings became rulers of these lands, they felt it important to emulate King Arthur in order to express their Englishness. This legend was held in such high regard that Geoffrey of Monmouth wrote Arthur into his “History of the Kings of Britain”. For centuries this was held as true. Even today, scholars search for proof.

They are, of course, missing the point. Arthur is indeed the once and future King, he has been since these isles were formed and he will be long after we have gone. For he is the energy of the land. He is not sleeping, he is very much awake and waiting for us to take up our armour and work with him.

This introductory day will give us an insight into the meaning behind the legends and offer us a connection to the world of the ancients.

Spirituality and Money

I read this article on Shaman Portal-it is very refreshing to see Jade have the courage to speak up about frankly a taboo subject.  I like his understanding and clarity

“Within the cultural paradigm of which I come, that of the indigenous North Americans, the thought of ‘paying’ for a Ceremonial never comes up because the thought of NOT paying is never considered, so there is never the need to put a ‘price tag’ on anything of a spiritual nature. We Spirit People who provide a spiritual service, at home in a tribal culture, may wake up to find a sack of corn, a haunch of venison, an envelope of cash or some other valuable gift upon our doorstep. A person who receives help from us Spirit Peoples will continue to provide gifts for years to come.

This expression of appreciation is not a feature of American culture. In a consumer based society everything has an expected fee. You pay the price or go without. If there is no price established, there is an assumption of fine-print-trickery or worthlessness. This aspect of American society deprives the individual of responsibility and freedom in relationship to establishing the inherent value of a product or service to the individual. If, on the other hand, there is the appellation of ‘donation’ or ‘contribution’ associated with the item or experience, there is an observed tendency of even the most spiritually inclined person to consider that no payment or a minimal pittance is somehow acceptable, rather than to own personal responsibility for determining the value, for one’s self, of that which has been offered. This ‘get-something-for-nothing’ attitude is both reprehensible and dishonoring.

“How much is this Ceremony?” I have been asked. I might respond by asking how many dollars is an experience of the ineffable and infinite worth? A teaching which may transform one’s world view? The opportunity for a healing that enables a person to live, let alone to live with grace and ease? The very concept is rather absurd. There is no way to place a dollar value on these things.

What is affordable to one is an extravagance beyond measure for another, and for someone else the same amount is mere pocket change. What is affordable for you? Determine this, then offer more than what is affordable, for it is in that realm between what is affordable and comfortable, and the extension of one’s offering beyond that limit, which creates the space where true healing and appreciation reside. I will often present a guide for payment in an evening’s Ceremony: How much would you spend on a fine evening’s entertainment? A movie and dinner? A night out partying at a club? Going to a theatrical stage production? Determine this first. Now, if what you have received in this Ceremony is purely entertainment, place an equivalent amount in the basket. If you have received something more than entertainment, something which is enlightening and world changing, place an amount in the basket in accordance of value of that which you have received. If you feel ‘less than’ from your experience, take something out of the basket and place it in your pocket! Never should a person feel lessened by their experience in a sacred event.

I have found that, even after offering insight on how ‘payment’ is handled, that some will then look at me and ask “So, what is the fee for this Ceremony?” Well, I have been sent forth, by my Grampa and by Eagle Brother, into the American world to bring ‘the Ways’ into accessibility for all. I have had to learn to speak the language, socially and economically. So, when you see that there is a fee placed upon a ceremony, it is because, for the most part, Americans do not have the culturally designed knowledge of how to appropriately recompense a valuable service.

There are times when a person says to me that they really would like to attend a Ceremony or receive a Doctoring (Shamanic Healing Ceremony), but they cannot afford it. I will never turn away a person who sincerely needs help just because they don’t have cash in their pocket. If a person sincerely needs help, help I will offer to the best of my ability. The need for assistance arises from within the Soul, not the bank account. Such a person of indigent means may be asked to perform a service in exchange, and not always a service for me, but often a community service. It is the act of giving beyond one’s means which creates the space for healing. This is, in addition to the many ways possible, one expression of my give-away back into the Community.

There are some who have a belief that any kind of monetary exchange for a spiritual service is somehow unethical. I am curious when presented with this particular world view. I ask of the person what they themselves do to earn an income. And, if this occupation of theirs is not the expression of their spiritual service in the world, then why are they wasting their time doing something, merely for money, which is NOT their Spirit’s Calling? Personally, I cannot conceive of spending a significant portion of my waking life in the pursuit of money, let alone doing something which has no relevance to the purpose of my Being!

My Grampa Pena was insistent that payment be made for all Shamanic services. He would say that if a person did not suffer (by ‘suffer’ he meant to go beyond one’s comfort zone, physically, mentally, emotionally), they would not appreciate nor receive anything of value. Grampa told of how, in a Vision Quest, the young Indian men go up on the mountain with no food nor water for three, maybe four days. He spoke of how, because in those days the People were always hungry, that to go without food might mean death. And sometimes these young men would, in fact, die up on the mountain. He then mentioned American people who go up on the mountain, they don’t eat for a few days, they come down from the mountain and have a big turkey dinner….it means nothing to them to not eat, there is no real challenge. “Grandson,” he told me “you gotta make the people suffer so they can get something good. Those American people, they hurt in their wallet!” Think about it. He was right, you know.

My Spirit’s Calling IS my Life. As such, the expression of that Calling is, and must be, the means of supporting my worldly existence so that I can continue to bring my Spirit’s Calling forth. So, when you see a ‘fee’ associated with a Ceremony, that monetary exchange is not a payment for a Ceremony. It is a contribution to, and support of, the continuance of my life and worldly responsibilities (rent, food, transportation to your community, my kids’ shoes and bicycles, an occasional movie…you know, the stuff of life in the world) so that I am able to continue to present ‘the Ways’ to you, and to others down the road.”
