Wachi, meaning mother in Yamassee, is the title of our series and the spirit behind this visual storytelling of a young woman's journey across the world to gather the wisdom and prayers of some of our world's greatest and most unseen women.

I'm Megan, the young woman referenced above, and I along with my partner Jon Nash, filmmaker & founder of Natural Leaders Foundation, have just spent the last 3-4 months traveling through Central America & Peru.

While making our way towards Brazil were meeting with Grandmothers, daughters and granddaughters from all walks of life; from indigenous matriachs to inner-city school teachers to social activists.

Along the way we began documenting the women's stories, their wisdoms and prayers; we are excited to soon begin passing forward the many gifts that have been shared with us, for you to one day receive!

Wachi Way Village & Natural Leaders Foundation.

This patreon page is not only here to support the cost of producing this Docuseries, but also to seed the first Wachi Way Village; a home for natural birth, education and community living that creates safe and sacred spaces for families and individuals welcoming new life or looking to better care for the lives already in their day-to-days.

These sustainable community-ran villages are to be centered around the innate wisdom of natural water birthing. Want to know more?

Well overall, there is a large gap to be filled in terms of Women's Health, especially when it comes to birthing and even more so when the mother is a Woman of color or considered a minority... If you want to learn more about the statistics and conversations around birthing, subscribe and stay tuned!

We are aiming to bring forth one of the most nurturing environments available for mothers and families around the world. We will also provide year-round educational opportunities for all in the fields of birth-work, herbalism, permaculture, art, natural building, and much more. 

We will utilize these hubs as a place to exchange cultural wisdom and appreciation. This is a center to come together to lift one another up and make sure we all have what we need to see our children, families and communities thrive. 

We are in a great time of transition and now more than ever there is a deep call to recover the teachings of our ancestors and restore the ability for us as humans to honor all relations

The culture of the communities we are supporting is one that cares instinctively about all the above. So if that is you, stay connected!

We are investing our time in efforts to stay current and engaged throughout several platforms from the Upcoming Docuseries to  Podcasts, Youtubes, Blogs and of course a weekly 'gram post. AKA ... we are easily found and working hard to create various streams of nourishing and inspiring content.

Your patronage is building the foundations of sustainable, long-lasting support and aid for families around the world.

* ______ IMPORTANT NOTES WE'D LIKE TO SHARE____*

Currently the majority of the funds you contribute will be used to pay filmmakers, editors and for production assistance. It will also go to promoting videos, the production of live, family-first gatherings/fundraisers,  and miscellaneous costs such as website hosting fees, editing software etc.

Your funds make it possible for us to keep our websites, YouTube channels and social media spaces ad-free.  
*By becoming a supporter, you make it possible for us to remain an independent voice, so we don’t have to answer to any advertisers, politicians or corporations. We can bring forth the most authentic content and creations because you ensure that we don’t owe any favors and don’t have to generate ad revenue through clicks and views.

Not a cent of this money is going towards paying for our personal time. We live, travel and create in with a minimalist mindset. Your pledges go directly to our nonprofit, so it’s also a tax-deductible donation. 

We can't do this without you, so if this work sparks joy within you, please become a monthly supporter. We've chosen some great benefits to share, so besides playing a key role in a much larger mission, you'll get a little something from us to lighten up your personal journey.

The first part of this journey is generating enough support to make it possible to get out on this adventure. 
Luckily, traveling by car will save us a little and will gain us all massively more beautiful, breath-taking moments in nature as we make our way from village to village, mother to mother.

Having your support means that we get to share this experience with you all, and eventually across an even larger platform. We are here to do this and do it right!

Honoring the spirit behind this documentary and all that will come from it is of our utmost focus; secondly, we wish to bring these stories, prayers and wisdoms of our Grandmothers forward with nothing less than the most artistic, purely beautiful means of visual storytelling that your eyes may have yet to witness. We want you to feel as if you are right there with us; sitting around the fires, at the weaving circles, dancing, singing...in ceremony, in prayer.

Once we grow to 55 patrons we will have by then acquired all the necessary below upgrades, so that we will then have full potential to create a documentary that is more than breath-taking and awe-inspiring... yet more of a movement to plant seeds, we can tend to together, that will last lifetimes.

 Trip Prep Wish List, made possible by this incredible community.
- A wide camera lens( and eventually updated camera )+ waterproof casing for electronic survival while in the Rainforest
- Go-Pro 
- Travel costs (flights, buses, border-crossing paperwork, the occassional hostel)
- Backpacking Gear 
*if you have any equipment that you would like to donate we are also open to receiving support in that way.

So there we go, those are the first major items to get, and then we hit the road March 18! First Stop Guatemala!

And thank you for all of those of you out there joining us today! Your contribution/support is such a large part of this growing, global prayer for our planet, it's a potent and powerful energetic exchange.
We value, honor and send so much gratitude to each and every one of you who is a part of this.

Let the journeying begin!

Please share your prayers with us by messaging them to our IG  @grandwachi , throughout this journey, Megan will be in almost continuous prayer, during daily meditations and ceremonies she will hold a pure heart for the pouring of unconditional love into each and every request we receive.
