A Tribal Gathering Place

This beautiful mini-grove of rowan trees is located smack bang in the middle of the industrial estate I work in. Isn’t it gorgeous?

Now, before I say anything else: Apologies for the long break in blogging! It’s what happens when a hag stumbles over her own issues. I was full-steam-ahead in the plans for the tribal community I’m planning, when I was slowed down by health issues. Don’t worry about me – I am going to be fine. It’s just that I came down with a bad and persistent headache for the first time in my 43 years of life, and the pain has been rather debilitating. I’m in great medical care and we’ve already excluded a lot of things so I know a lot of things I DON’T have – but I still don’t know what I do have.

I’d like to ask you a favour: I don’t want to talk about this at length, so please don’t make any “diagnosis” suggestions – I know you guys are lovely and helpful, but I really am covered and I will be fine. Right now, I am booked for the following: another doctor’s appointment, an eye examination, and a massage. Heck, it can’t hurt, right? I’ll get rid of this. And that’s the last I am prepared to talk about it – I won’t give a silly headache any more energy than I need to.

Hugs are always welcome though!

I’ve also decided that I’ll share with you what I’ve got so far in terms of the new tribal community. This goes against all “business” advice usually given – you’re supposed to reveal a FINISHED product. I say, you’re my tribe and you can handle it. So, the following is subject to change, ok?

What I’m planning is a forum where you can become a member for free. Everyone has access to the general chatty area and you can also choose to “sign up” for any number of other areas. For example, if you would like to chat to others about the Free 7-Day Witchcraft Course, you’ll be added to that group. Only members of a group will be able to see that group’s forum, so you’ll always be among people who are going through or have gone through the same course that you have.

There’ll be forums for paid courses too. I’m even planning to offer courses that start on a particular date, and instead of working through your course by email on your own, the lessons and assignments will be posted in your private forum, where you can talk about them with your own small group and me, and nobody else.

Here’s the forum groups I’ve dreamed up so far:

General forum – chatty (everyone can see it)
Book club – (everyone can see it) We can all post our own book reviews, and we could start a “club” where we all agree on a particular book to read and talk about in the forum.

Sacred masculinity – free
Sacred femininity – free
Weekly guided meditations group – free

Astral projection workshop – free
Witchcraft courses – free and paid
13 Moons courses – paid, once a year, as described here.

Time Management – free
From Debt To Freedom – paid
A Course In Happiness – paid
Mastermind groups for online entrepreneurs/freelancers/artists – free

  2. Yeah, I think I understand that now, it's no use trying to force myself to finish it. Health first 🙂 But I'm looking forward to the community!

    I think this all sounds very exciting. I've been looking forward to it and already see plenty of forums that I would love to join.

    I do hope you feel better soon. Health is often something we take for granted until it one day fails us. I'm glad to hear you are getting the care and support you need. Sending very positive thoughts your way.

  4. The forums sounds great and I like the idea of free and paid areas. What a cool idea! And many hugs to you. Hope that massage helps relieve the pain and that nasty old headache goes away for good.

  5. Thank you 🙂 I think the thoughts and energy you and others are sending is helping, because I'm really feeling better. I'm looking forward to finishing the community, and it'll be wonderful to have you on board!

    Much love xx

  7. Wow that's a bit a shock, I think that you are a very positive person so to state the obvious that's what you must stay.

    May I send you Huge Big hugs.

  8. I love the idea of weekly guided meditations. Group meditations are so powerful!

    Sacred Femininity also speaks to me. I should step more into my feminine power.
    Time management!!!
    Astral Projection!!
    Super ideas!

    About the headaches, I have debilitating headaches almost every weekend. I know for me they probably are because of stress during the week and relaxing weekends (I always get them in the weekends) and it is a way for my body to ground me, get me back to earth. I know I need to slow down and walk my path – do my Thing. And if I don't these headaches will keep coming.
    I love how you find time to work on your coachingbiz next to your j.o.b. Something I aspire to.
    Plus probably hormonal for me as well, the pain has gotten worse since I stopped taking the Pill.

    I hope your pain was a one off thing and you are all well now.

    Take care!

  9. It's amazing how these “bad” headaches have lessons, just like any dis-ease, isn't it? Like you I believe that when I've learned the lesson, they will disappear. I hope you'll be pain-free very soon!

    And I'm so glad you like the sound of the community. I am itching to work on it, if I continue to feel better this weekend, I might even get it finished.

    Much love! xx
