A revolutionary way to be!
Hi my name is Sloan Tate. I created She Woke to build a community of visionary leaders. I believe that empaths are the most important resource that our communities have. It is common for empaths to feel the world as "heavy" or to be "too sensitive"thats why She Woke is dedicated to providing resources and tools to support and remind us all that your intuition is your greatest gift.
For centuries, in cultures all over the world, medicine men, shaman, and seers have been well respected resources of information.
"In every primitive tribe," writes Dr. Geza Roheim, "we find the medicine man in the center of society and it is easy to show that the medicine man is either a neurotic or a psychotic or a least that his art is based on the same mechanisms as a neurosis or psychosis. Human groups are actuated by their group ideals, and these are always based on the infantile situation." "The infancy situation is modified or inverted by the process of maturation, again modified by the necessary adjustment to reality, yet it is there and supplies those unseen libidinal ties without which no human groups could exist." "The medicine men, therefore, and simply making both visible and public the systems of symbolic fantasy that are present in the psyche of every adult member of their society. " "They are the ladders in this infantile game and the lighting conductors of common anxiety. They fight the demons so that others can hunt the prey and in general fight reality."
Here, Dr. Geza Roheim's quote from The Origions and Functions of Culture (Nervous and Mental Disease Monographs, No. 69.) Pg. 38-39, sited in The Hero with a Thousand Faces by Joseph Cambell on pg. 84 gives a wonderful example of how tribal communities have thrived and celebrated the great honor of the medicine man, seer, or intuitive resource to the community.
I find that hiding our gifts and special mystic talents, not only cripples the soul of the individual, but of the entire society. That is why She Woke is indeed, a revolutionary way to be.
