THE WOMAN AND THE WARRIOR

A true story.  A fundraiser for a remarkable veteran.

With Jumana Sophia

THE TRUE STORY:

At the lowest point in my year long van-life-walk-about I was in North Carolina and I was not OK. My Ashland crew knew this might happen and they were prepared.  Plans were being made to fly to me and get me safe and settled.

But first, I prayed.

My first prayer:  I'm so lost.  God, where do I go?

Answer:  Get to the ocean.

Second prayer:  I am way too alone.  This is no longer good for me.  Please.  Guide me.  

Answer:  Get to the ocean.

So, about a week later I found myself on the Gulf coast.  

The ocean received me.  The relief was immediate.  My first prayer was answered.   

 

I stepped out of my van the second day and my arrival by the sea was precisely timed with the intended departure of a man who would choose instead to stay with me and become one of the closest friends and accidental teachers I have ever had.  His first priority with me has always been my protection.  

 

My second prayer was answered.  God gave me not just a friend but a guardian.  

This is not a romance.  We are not lovers.

This is not a fantasy.  But it is certainly destiny.

THE FUNDRAISER:

My friend is a disabled marine veteran who has resurrected himself from near death several times, multiple mental health disorders, a near fatal level of substance abuse, severe PTSD, traumatic brain injury and other things he will not talk about. You wouldn't know any of this if you met him.  He is years sober.  Because he has cultivated self-awareness and self-mastery through necessity rather than curiosity he is tested and true. He is the most competent and self-reliant man I have ever met.  In fact, when we met he was traveling with a hammock, a kessel, and a knife, bushcrafting his way through the northern forests and southern jungles of the east coast.  

 

His eyes are bright and warm.  His soul force is palpable.  His heart is a guarded treasure house.  (sshhh don't tell anyone!  that's a secret).  And it turns out that my first priority with him is his protection.

 

THERE IS SO MUCH I WANT FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL, BURDENED MAN.

I want him to have the service dog he was prescribed five years ago. 

I want him to have the kind of healing treatments that are outside of the scope of what the VA will provide.

I want him to sleep well all through the night and have days upon days free of PTSD escalations that he currently manages by driving himself to the parking lot of an ER and waiting for the panic to pass.   

And much more.

So this fundraiser was born.

I am asking for your help, your generosity, and your love.
 

ALL of the money received will go directly to my friend.  On the back end this will be held by the ministry I founded a decade ago- Aquamystica Ministries.  Our history, our status as a 508(c)(1)(a) and our accounting are firmly established.  You will receive a receipt for any donation you offer and any donation over $250 is tax deductible.  

 

My goal is to raise at least $20,000 and anchor him firmly on higher ground.  With a highly trained service companion standing by his side.

You can of course just simply donate - the button for that is below.  But I also wanted to make medicine of my time with this remarkable man, and offer you something in return for your generosity.  

So......

I will be offering three separate opportunities for us to gather together and share in inspiring explorations of honor, the hard but holy medicine of the soul road, reciprocal guardianship, how to take the war out of man, and a handful of other wonderful things that I have come to know more deeply over these past eight months with this unexpected teacher.

 

All the details are below.  

I thank you with my whole heart for whatever generosity you can provide.  May it be returned to you a thousand fold.

 

Love,

Jumana

THE WOMAN AND THE WARRIOR

A fundraiser for a remarkable veteran.

THE WOMAN AND THE WARRIOR -
HONOR IS THE WAY

90 Minute Webinar 

 *Open to Anyone, Men and Women

THEME: Together we will restore our faith in humanity (and ourselves) through consideration of the true nature of honor, human nobility, and mutual guardianship.  We will consider the impeccable instincts of a warrior initiated by war and seasoned by loss - a trained killer deeply aware of his responsibility to protect, not destroy.   We'll have some fun exploring why woman and warrior belong together and will forever seek one another.  I will be sharing a few of the most treasured lessons I've learned in my own private boot camp, and we will hear from my favorite veteran as well - he will be writing down three ways in which our friendship has changed him for the better too and we will all read them together for the first time.  There will be both teaching and discussion time.

DONATION: $55 or more

DATE AND TIME:

Sunday, August 20th
Webinar: 9 - 10:30 AM, PST


*Recording will be made available if you are unable to attend live.

DONATE ($55):

OPTION TO DONATE MORE THAN $55: 

Any donation in the amount of $250 or more is tax deductible through Aquamystica Ministries.  ALL monies received will go directly to our veteran.  This is not an email capture - you will only receive links to join the class and then an update on how much we raised, what it accomplished, and some adorable pictures of the puppy who will grow up to become his service dog :)

THE WOMAN AND THE WARRIOR -
THIS IS HOW WE LOVE

90 Minute Webinar plus 90 Minute Video Discussion

**Open to any woman called to these sacred sensibilities

THEME: In follow up to the webinar we will gather in video discussion format for guided practice, inquiry and depth exploration of what it means to be served and protected and initiated by a warrior, as well as how to recognize when we are in the company of a mature and therefore trustworthy warrior, rather than an as-yet unitiated man.   As women devoted to the cultivation of deep feminine presence and redemptive love, we will explore the specific skillful means 
we must cultivate in order to serve and elicit the mature warrior in our men - lovers, sons, fathers, soul brothers.  We will also consider how all of this reflects into wise choices around sexuality, safety, and deep feminine satiety.
 
DONATION: $105 or more
