New Home › Forums › Build My Dream Team › HUNTING: All the woo-woo, none of the hippy dippy
December 14, 2015 at 12:14 pm #4656
Seems there are a few woo-woo sisters here! Yay!
1. Name: Darla
2. What I Do (150 characters): dream worker, intuitive, journalist in every sense of the word. I teach women how to create a daily practice of following their intuition through their nightly dreams and daily synchronicities.
3. Kind of eCourse I’m excited to make (150 characters): I want to create an eCourse around working with One’s dreams but I want to go above and beyond audio downloads or recorded phone calls (blech). I want to bring in guest lecturers and have a well-rounded syllabus that incorporates more than just my own work. I want it to be an eCourse but I also want it to be 3D– I want to work in some element that makes it tangible– a welcome kit mailed to your door, a customized field trip that each individual can do in their area, etc. And yes: essays. 8) I want to go deeper and know without a doubt that something is being learned. Probably have to do two levels: one deep and one basic so people can choose according to their time schedule.
4. What I am looking for in an Adventure Buddy (150 characters):
I love my hippy dippy sisters and enjoy their company but I am decidedly not into that sector of New Agey-ness. But all the more power to you! We need you! My aim is to make the more spiritual side of things easily accessible to women, like me, who don’t love yoga, give ourselves goddess names or chant in sanskrit.
I am open to a buddy who DOES do these things, but know that that is not me. Also wouldn’t mind a male buddy either! I want a buddy with whom we can bounce ideas off of and possibly collaborate
5. If you really knew me, you’d know that(150 characters): I am no-nonsense, down-to-earth, and a big softie. I follow my gut/body. I say it like it is.December 14, 2015 at 12:30 pm #4665

I love your description and the vision for your course Darla. I love that you’re thinking outside of the box of the regular PDF + Audios.
Do you know Toko-pa Turner? I bought my wife her 30 day dream course a few years ago. She’s in the same realm as you are and an awesome teacher.
I love the idea of having kits mailed to the door. What would you include in that do you think?
– dream journal, dream alter, …..???!
So happy to have you diving into the lessons.
Let’s conquer this mountain!December 14, 2015 at 12:56 pm #4673
Yes, I’ve come across Toko-pa’s work before and though I haven’t taken a course from her, I like her style! For the kit, i’m thinking dream journal, items for a dream altar (stones, crystals, maybe a limited edition piece of jewelry), an awesome pen (because, hello, I am a legit journalist– haha), some tea for dream enhancement . . . things like that.
And hey, where’s your wife? I think I’d like her. 🙂December 15, 2015 at 11:36 am #4900
Bradley MorrisMountain Guide@bradleytmorris
Love the mail out alters you’re gonna do. Thats going to be an amazing value-added element to your course.
Ya, you sure will like her. Her website is CelesteMorris.com
You can also find her on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/celeste.ford.98?fref=ts
Tell her that her hubbie sent you 🙂December 15, 2015 at 12:06 pm #4904
Hey @darla, must say I did not know hippies were all into yoga, chanting and godess names. At least now I can confirm I’m not a hippie. Definitely agree you can have all the woo-woo without the accoutrement.
Totally inspired by your welcome kits and field trips. Those are all things that have been making brief appearances in my thoughts but for not long enough to be tangible ideas. Now they are!

Welcome from a fellow non-hippy-dippy-but-fully-into-woo sister! I love your ideas and would love to be your adventure buddy if you are still looking for one!December 25, 2015 at 2:55 pm #5828
I like your description of yourself and your plans for your course. The idea of physical components never even occurred to me. It will be fascinating to see how that comes together for you.
In the meantime, I have a question for you. Clearly the terms “woo woo” and “hippie dippy” mean something to the other folks here at the campsite, but I have no idea what they mean! Could you enlighten me?
I think your answer will really help me understand your post, and other posts as well!

Hi Cristin! Yes I am still looking for an adventure buddy. Are you still available?December 28, 2015 at 9:38 pm #6219
Obviously, Hardy, you are NOT a magical babe. LOL
Yes, I would be happy to explain. “Woo-Woo” is kind of a casual/slang/almost derogatory term for mystical things: Spirit Guides, Spirit animals, divination, etc. “Hippy Dippy” often goes hand-in-hand with woo-woo (along with airy-fairy) and kind of pokes fun at the stereotypical New Age “hippy” who is often into these woo-woo practices. Hence, my brand trying to separate the woo-woo from the hippy dippy. Does that help?December 28, 2015 at 9:44 pm #6221
Hi Lorraine! Well, of course not ALL hippies are into those things, and I’m not one to usually go for stereotypes, but in this instance it is helpful for my brand so that newcomers get an immediate idea if I’m for them or not. But yes! Exactly! Without all the accoutrement. Maybe just some of it. Good word. I might have to use that! 🙂December 29, 2015 at 11:32 am #6314
I once heard Michael Beckwith describe life as airy/earthy. Its totally cool to do whatever in the “hippy dippy” realm, but you have got to do the earthy stuff too! I have a foot in both. I want to develop a totally “out of the box” course that kicks butt to help Artists to succeed. I am surrounded by yoga teachers and can’t stand yoga. (Love them all as well as practitioners, just not for me.) If you are still looking for a buddy, let me know and maybe we can be a good fit. Cheers!December 29, 2015 at 8:06 pm #6421
Hi Alyssa! I would LOVE to be your buddy! That description from Michael Beckwith is SPOT-ON. Thanks for sharing it, I hadn’t heard it put that way before.
So. Still in need of a buddy?January 7, 2016 at 11:00 am #7539
So Darla, are you still available?
A couple of superfoodie dudes looking to make serious magic happen.January 18, 2016 at 11:03 am #11771
Hey Darla, I am totally with you on taking the hippy stuff and sharing it in a away that is easy to apply and understand. And I find I run into the same thing with my sisters!! needing a bit more of the masculine to create a structure to really help others out! I am a women circle leader, entrepreneur healer eastern thearapist and I’ve got massive dreams. and find it challenging to find others who resonate.
I love your ideas around integrating a more interactive process, I’ve heard of a few other leaders doing that as well. I am similar in that I’m wanting to build community and create a place to showcase amazing talent , so wanting to create a brand or hub where people who have never heard of “alternative” things can be introduced and inspired .
if your still looking let me know!!

Hi @mandimack! Sorry, I have had really bad internet connection the last few weeks.
If you’re still looking for a buddy, let me know!
