SERVE

2017-2018 Artemis-In-Depth Mentorship Program

With the spirit and energy of the Artemis archetype, women become activists for feminism and social justice—as well as environmentalists, defenders of wildlife and tree huggers. Women with an archetypal kinship with Artemis are called into action by outer events and an inner response to do something about them . . . These are women who call upon their intuition, depth of feeling, and courage to go beyond previous limits; who feel fear and outrage and have to adapt and endure and not give in or give up. Each has an inner spirit that is not subdued, a will that is not broken. Each in her own way is a quirky, independent, courageous person who is in uncharted territory—the metaphoric wilderness, the realm of Artemis.

To send an arrow to a target of your own choosing requires aim, intention, determination, focus and power.

Dear Sister,

It is with extraordinary pleasure that I invite you on an exalted journey into your personal Artemis medicine and the call to sacred activism. The Artemis-In-Depth mentorship program, Serve, is open to women that have previously completed an Artemis module (Initiate, Thrive or Nurture).

Serve is a 10 month, three phase journey aligned thematically with the energies of the seasons.  

This is an opportunity for you to show up to your sacred work on an even more profound level with a strong and steady container supported and held in community.

The invitation is to drop all of your identities and ideas about who you are, what you do or should be doing and how you do it so that you can enter a space of deeper listening and dance with what is emergent. From surrender we will allow ourselves to be guided by the signs, symbols and synchronicities that show up along the path. 

The intention behind the name, Serve, is to reclaim what it means to be in service from the martyr / savior / caretaker paradigm and to align service with authentic passion, embodied pleasure, sovereignty and in right relationship with giving and receiving. 

What is presented below is a general outline of the program. Your personal journey will be largely self-created and self-directed. The program will also be shaped by the participants so we will adjust content and practices based on your desires and also what is emerging in our shared space. 


Program Outline

 

Elements of Connection

Phase 1 - Soul

The first phase will be a focus on the journey inward to the true core of who you are. You will surrender your strategic mind and connect even more deeply to the essence of your destiny--the place guided by rapturous desire.  

We will continue the work of uncovering your limiting beliefs based on societal and cultural imprints and we will actively rewrite these stories and live into a bigger dream. We will be in a bigger conversation as to how the deep erotic and emergent feminine are coming through us individually and the collective.

Phase 1 Content includes:

  • Value, Worth & Money
  • Archetypal Maps for Healing and Wholing
  • Shadow Work 
  • Neuroplasticity, Nervous System & Trauma
  • The Evolution of Consciousness 
  • Boundaries, Consent & Discernment

Required Reading:  Overcoming Under-Earning by Barbara Stanny

Core question:  What is the larger story that I am in service to?

Phase 2 - Relationship

The second phase explores how the pulse of your soul--what you discovered in Phase 1--dances with the rest of the world.  We will explore both inner relationship--the inner beloved--and outer relationship--romantic relationship, parental relationship and relationship with the other-than-human world (nature, mystery, the cosmos). 

Phase 2 Content includes:

  • Communication and Relationship Skills
  • Heart-Based Conflict Resolution
  • Somatic Mentorship Skills
  • Human Development
  • Intimacy
  • Energetic & Physical Anatomy of Sexuality and Reproductive Health
  • (Maybe a class on men's sexuality?!?)

Required Reading:  TBA (Leaning towards Come As You Are by Emily Nagoski)

Core question:  What is my unique gift?

Phase 3 - Leadership

The third phase is focused on stepping into leadership and service in a bigger way.  Your primary task will be to develop an offering aligned with your soul image. You will have an opportunity to share an aspect of this offering with the Artemis Sisterhood. 

Phase 3 Content includes:

  • Creating Content, Courses & Curriculum Development
  • Guiding Movement
  • Social Justice 
  • Stepping into Leadership
  • And some cool things that I learn in grad school!

Required Reading:  Chosen by you

Core question:  How am I offering up my unique gift to the world (what is my delivery method)?

Logistics & Time Requirements

-One-on-One Calls (one hour each, 2 per quarter) - you will schedule on your own via my calendar link.

-Group Council Calls (90 minutes each, 2 per quarter) - I will send out a doodle poll to get a sense of everyone's general schedules. We will schedule group calls when most people are available and will have some rotation to allow as many women as possible to join live. Unless you have a strict work or family commitment, it is highly recommended that you make attending these calls live a priority. They will also be recorded.

-Dyads - the recommendation is that you connect via phone or video at least once/month. This partnership will be self designed and self directed. There will be some practices/exercises that you will need to do together. 

-Group Experiential Classes (one/month Oct-June + quarterly Q&A) - These will likely be held on a Saturday morning for two hours. There will be some teaching/discussion and a good amount of time for embodied explorations. We will also break out into dyads and groups. Again, it is highly recommended that you make attending these live a priority and they will also be recorded. 

-Women in the mentorship will be receiving additional content and/or reflection questions related to the content in from the group classes once/month uploaded to the forum.

All of the above is a general total of 3-5.5 hours/month.

In addition to the above:

-You will be designing a daily ritual practice for yourself.  The idea here is to make a commitment that anchors you into your purpose and connection with mystery every day. It can be very simple and does not need to be time consuming. It can also evolve and change to serve in the most powerful way from moment to moment. 

-Plan to dedicate one hour/week to exploring this work through reading, doing practices etc. (And perhaps a bit more in the last phase when you are designing your offering).

-Weekly shares, reflections and contributions to the online forum.

-A dedication to do something out of the ordinary and/or out of your comfort zone at least once per phase.

You must commit to the full 10 month journey that begins in September.

 

Registration closes Saturday, September 30
