In this podcast I’m joined again by Nanu Berks for a deep and insightful exploration of the power dynamics, gender politics, and social psychology of philanthropy, decentralized movement building, and business development in the crypto-currency and blockchain space. I appreciated her mentioning the Survival Wombyn project and that she held space for me to explain it, and shed some fear and embarrassment about soliciting women to join it. We share values of radical responsibility and agree to help keep each other in check.

It was refreshing and invigorating to commiserate and share strength and resolve to keep fighting the good fight with art, tech, and love.

The Survival Wombyn Project Green Paper TPP173

In this episode I read the “Green Paper” for the Survival Wombyn Eco (role)Modeling Project. I then elaborate on the backstory and road map of the project.

Here is the white paper:

When I was a boy, I was enchanted by the female form, the majestic whole woman. When my older male friends started to show me adult hardcore magazines I was offended and confused by their crude objectification of the models. They were more interested in the close-up action than the beauty of the emotional expressions. There was no natural and healthy context in those photographs and it hurt my eyes and heart.

Much later in life I discovered through tantra yoga and psychedelic shamanic healing ceremonies that I was abused as a child. No wonder I didn’t vibe with the predator energy of the older boys. I always yearned for medicinal love and intimacy, and the peace and serenity of wild nature.

I built a career as a sustainable edible landscape designer and as my personal healing journey has progressed, I have discovered my spiritual purpose as a wounded healer: to compost the patriarchy and help put five thousand years of male dominance over women, children, animals, and nature to rest.

The Survival Wombyn project is one of my collaborative attempts to restore whole natural beauty to human sensuality. I endeavor to depict models in an innocent, wholesome, playful, yet purposeful manner that transcends the shackles of abusive fetishes and commercialized exploitation.

In addition to re-positioning the home of eros back into nature, I feel compelled to empower women as role-models so they can demonstrate ecological values, knowledge, and skills.

Rather than simply depict women enraptured in the sensuousness of natural settings, my goal is to feature their integration into nature through yoga, gardening, natural building, appropriate and sustainable technology, primitive skills, herbalism, shamanism, witchcraft, self defense training, and more.

Most of my close female friends are diverse, beautiful Eco-Warrior Goddesses who can train mainstream models in these empowering and liberating arts. I believe conscious alt models can and will revolutionize and enlighten the dominant modeling industry paradigm. While much of the status quo industry defaults to a low form of black magic, titillating the vacuous male gaze and exploiting women’s beauty to sell products that harm the environment, we can do better with conscious, intentional, consensual green magic!

When I am reborn, I want it to be in a future world where the intoxicating power of female beauty is intelligently used to keep men in a permanent state of graceful worship and service. Peace, prosperity, equality, and harmony can be restored when men lay down their axes and swords, and live in loving devotion to the divine, earthly, and human feminine essence.

In practical terms, the Survival Wombyn (Role)Modeling Project will be evolve along the following path:

Phase 1: Self-fund the development of the desktop/mobile website application infrastructure to facilitate Ethereum smart contract based crypto-currency tipping for models who submit and license audio/video/still photographs.

Phase 2: With 5% of each cryptocurrency  tip amount held for use to fund ongoing development of the platform, top budget priorities include: staff payment,  an online merchandise store, production equipment purchases, travel expense allocations, print publications, course-ware implementations, and more.

Phase 3: When significant brand recognition is achieved and cashflow is available, various  reality show series concepts will be explored.

Phase 4: When funds allow, further website/mobile app infrastructure will be built out to facilitate more formal cryptocurrency crowdsourced funding for projects proposed by models, to be voted on and prioritized through a blockchain based decentralized autonomous organization voting mechanism.

Phase 5: With abundant financial resources and potential social impact venture capital, the ultimate goal is for on-the-ground ecological educational facilities to be built around the world that would serve as sustainable refugee camps for women and children fleeing from oppression and abuse of all kinds be it financial, familial, governmental, or religious.

To end on a personal note, it will be a dream come true to re-incarnate in the next life through an un-raped, unmolested womb, and to be raised in a rape-free zone established by the very Survival Wombyn models that my efforts directly empowered.

In Devotion to the Divine Feminine, in partnership with the Divine Masculine;
