About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

In Latin-American there are several issues related to woman, one of which is to work and to deal with the upbringing of children at the same time, for instance, we are not able to decide the way to give birth, we cannot find a real job in agreement with our skills, or sometimes we cannot make a simple decision due to the law. We cannot link the opposite, we have to choose for one way, and this creates psychic problems for us.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

. I think women are disconnected from her natural cycles (menstruation, creation, abortion, childbirth, menopause, womb’s energies, etc) and this is the main problem to understand life. Maybe living spiritually, connected with ancestral energy, nature and the four elements (air, water, fire, earth), we could relax and have energy to do everything we wish. Searching for our inner light could help us finding the lost power, the forgotten power because of modern life. We need to know the dark side of human nature to change our reality. We need to connect with our own ancestral wisdom in order to understand and make a difference.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

The meetings are very creative; women work with the four elements, meditations, circles, dialogue and art-therapy making inner changes. Sometimes just by having a dialogue, writing letters to someone special, dancing, learning about mind and body connected with planetary cycles or doing some psych-magic act, they can make the change to stay empowered or be aware of some occult talent. Those practices help women to carry on with their studies and to go deeper.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.

The positive impact is small, that’s why the project is still growing up. We work step by step and it depends on the person who joins us. At the moment we haven´t place any advertisement, however, there are a lot of women working with us at the moment and we are proud of that. In the future I can imagine more and more woman teaching this culture but I am sure before this happen, they need to connect with themselves.

Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?

The main strategy is to find a place. At the moment, we are working in different places and institutions so it is too difficult to grow up. After that, I will choose the best of my students to begin the most important practices. The women came by herself, it sounds incredible but it happens; it seems like magic but I think women feel that they need to make a change.
Sustainability

Financial Sustainability Plan: What is this solution’s plan to ensure financial sustainability?

The idea is to create a foundation but if it isn’t possible I have B plan: to conform a commercial place to teach, sharing and researching about this ancestral wisdom. The experience is very important in this case and the knowledge about astrology, culture of Los Andes, social life focused in native population and origins of Latin-America. Free events are also important to communicate and share this perspective.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

We are different because of the perspective. There are a lot of woman doing something like that but my proposition is holistic. I have been studying for about 10 years in order to find the connection between humans, cosmos and earth. I have traveled around Latin-American teaching and learning different cultures and native cosmovision. I think the secrets of natives are very important at the moment when the changes are bigger for our planet.

Founding Story

I am the founder so, the story is about me. I think it began when my mother committed suicide, I was 13 years old and then I thought “I have to help women, this cannot be something usual, may be my mother needed help but I could not do anything because of my age. So I decide to help the woman to generate her own power”. I am sure that this is the solution to change social life too.

Team

We are 4 four people working, among teachers, psychologist, astrologer, secretary, humanitarians and people who knows about body’s energy. We are idealist and we have the same objective: to make happy women for social peace.
