What is the Experience?
The Experience offers women an individually tailored, live-in journey with their Warrioress at the space we caretake in the pristine temperate rainforest of North–Eastern NSW. There are two types of deep immersion programs available: weekend intensives and week-long programs.
Women wishing to explore their specific Amazonian Warrioress can opt for either type of program. We only take women from one archetype at a time so that we can tailor the experience to that Warrioress, and we meet each women where she is at and simply start from there. There is no fitness requirement nor certain things that MUST be undertaken etc. Weapon training can be metaphorical or real: it’s up to you, for it is all uniquely tailored for what each women wants to look at within herself, explore, and accomplish. These areas and skills can be built on/advanced over multiple visits if she so chooses.
What do the programs involve?
There are two parts to the Amazonian Arts Experience Program that are interwoven. The first part is cultivating skills that are generic to all Warrioresses. These include skills such as fire-lighting, bush navigation, tracking, cooking with fire, deep listening, interspecies dialogue, bushcraft etc. Essentially re-wilding so that we can consciously re-member ever deeper levels of our inherent connection with nature. Each skill can be undertaken at basic or more advanced levels; for example, lighting a fire in the rain or without matches would be the advanced level of fire lighting.
The second part of the program relates to the specific Warrioress that you come with. In The Profile of each Warrioress, there is a list of suggestions to choose from. This is where each woman has to decide which experience is calling her the most. This requires feeling in beyond the initial desire to what your Warrioress is asking of you. There is also scope to discuss other ideas: the list provided is simply a place to start. For example, when we work with the Medicine Woman, we draw on our skills and experience in transpersonal counselling; shiatsu; and knowledge of food, herbs and wild weeds as medicine; to offer practices that deepen skills in intuition in the healing arts. If we have the Huntress stay, options include archery, hunting skills, crafting of arrows, a quiver, bow etc.; and if the Banshee visits one focus is constructing and partaking in sweat lodge ceremony etc. There will also be drum journeying with your Allies, altar creations, crafting etc. as it pertains to your specific Warrioress.
What do I need to know before I book in?
Before you can become a participant, you will need to know which Warrioress you are. You can choose one intuitively; however, we recommend an Amazonian Astrology reading because it will take you to places within yourself that may not be consciously accessible without a guide. It is here that you will hear most clearly which Warrioress is calling you. Next you will need to select The Profile of your Warrioress (the cost of which will be credited back to you if you decide to participate in one of these programs).
Once you decide to commit to The Experience, we will email you to schedule a time and date for a Skype or phone call consult. Before this consult you will need to have read The Profile as we will be creating the framework of what you will be coming to experience together.
What does it cost?
Cost will be calculated exactly post the consult so that we know if there are any extra materials we need to take into account that will be required for your experience. Approximate costs are $600 for the week-long program and $800 for weekend intensives (3 nights/4 days). All of our programs include food, accommodation and airport pick-up/drop-off (from Coffs Harbour) as required, and the Skype/phn consult. We try and keep prices as affordable as we can. In the week-long program we set a slower pace that integrates practices with the day-to-day running of space we caretake. Participants of this program are expected to contribute a little each day (i.e. dishes, feeding the ducks etc.), which enables us to run this program at a lower cost.
