What?
This is it! The time is now, the place is here, this is where the magic begins. This is your chance to contribute a golden square in the yellowbrick road to the completion of my lifelong dream - becoming an Interfaith Minister. You can find out more about what that is and why I'd want to here. In joining me along the path to my own transcendental emerald city of ordination, you'll earn yourself some fabulous gratitude points and good karma, and even gain a reward or two should you so choose!
Who?
My name is Rowan, and I'm a facilitator, psychosexual therapist, and fire fiend among other things. I work to bridge the artificial divides between sex, spirit, and magic, and am the creatrix behind makinglovewithgod.co.uk. My ever unfolding mission is to give permission to those facets of us that are often suppressed in our culture, and to support each individual in exploring and expressing those facets in creative, consensual, and sensationally satisfying ways. I do this by creating and holding safe and sacred spaces, facilitating ritual, working with clients on a one-to-one basis, and getting down and dirty with words and paint and flamable liquids.
Why?
Why would you do this? Because you're an awesome heart-centred supreme beautiful being of great magnanimity. Or you know just how much this means to me, because you know me, or because you read this and found out. Or maybe you suspect I'm going to use my future ministerial powers in radical, creative, sex positive ways, and the idea of a new kind of empassioned, ecstatic, inclusive communion with all-that-is-that-is-love really floats your boat.
And/or you might just want stuff. In which case, check out the rewards to see what you can get for your money!
When?
The course runs for two years, so that's how long I plan to leave this up for. During that time I'll be paying in monthly instalments, so if you think my goal is big, don't panic. It actually works out at around £370 pcm, which is the equivalent of around £2.90 pcm from every person on my mailing list, or just 92p pcm from each of my Facebook friends. UPDATE: Thanks to a scholarship, this has now gone down to 250pcm; hurrah!
How?
There are three ways you can help.
The first, obviously, is donating via this very clever website.
The second is purchasing books on my behalf from the wishlist I'll upload here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/registry/wishlist/13O3SMOG7DZW2
And the third is passing this on to other beings as awesomely generous as yourself.

Finally...
Thank you.
Thank you for dreaming my dream with me.
You rock.

The finish line sparkles in the distance - both in terms of ordination, which I approach with a profound sense of joy and anticipation, and in regards to this fund. I have changed the goal to reflect that I have only £655 worth of fees left to cover, plus some extra expenses in advance of the ordination ceremony. Thank you all so heartfully for supporting me so lovingly on this journey - it is being one of the most pivotal experiences of my life this time round, and I am so profoundly grateful.
Love,
Rowan

I'm bathed in post end-of-year-retreat gratitude for the ongoing gifts of the incredible journey - and I've uploaded some new rewards accordingly. I currently have enough in the fund for just one month's payment, and many months to go - so any support that can be given with ease and a full heart is so very welcome right now.
Thank you <3
