We have a new mission.....
Hello beautiful reader!
I started Substack around one year ago, with no real strategy in mind. I was so burnt out with social media and even though I maintained my email list, I was longing for a space to share whatever the hell I wanted.
People on Journey Home spend a lot of time in the liminal space. I call it the Void. It’s the “I don’t know what I am doing or what I want” phase. I’ve been inside it a lot last few years. So instead of pigeon-hole-ing myself into a niche, a strategy, and a content calendar, I wanted to play.
Writing has always been my first love. That thing I can go back to anytime and in any situation. Had a good day? Write about it. Life sucks right now? Write about it.
And, through that playful writing, on the platform, in google docs, and inside my journal, I feel like I’ve finally arrived at a place where I know what I want. And I am certain of what I want to do here.
Make no mistake, this want may evolve, morph or change over time but we all have to start somewhere, don’t we?
Journey Home to Self by Deepshikha Sairam is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.
What I want is to create a circle (community) of women where we find a sense of belonging, inspiration, and resources as together, we embrace our true power and grace as women, shaping a world of equality, connection, and a new form of leadership.
Why a Circle?
Because 3000+ years of Patriarchy has severed our connection with our Sacred Feminine nature. It has made us addicted to stress, over-consumption, competition, and judgment.
Without the feminine energy to ground us and trust in our innate wisdom, we have come off our axis. We have lost our center.
Journey Home to Self is a journey to find our center again. When we do this work in a circle (community), we are all equals. There is no guru. We all lead together.
This is the new, embodied leadership the world needs right now.
If you are a High Achieving Woman, seeking a purpose-driven life that births a new leadership and bucks the system with Sacred Feminine Wisdom & embodied Spiritual Teachings….
…then sister, I see you, I honor you and I welcome you to our Circle ❤️⭕️❤️
If I am being completely honest with you this Big Vision of mine seems too big and too scary, and I have no idea how will I create a community here with my writing, but I have faith. Oh, I have truckloads of faith in my vision.
So here’s what you need to know about this new phase of Journey Home to Self.
I have made a few tiny little changes:
For example, we have a brand-new logo and a header.
I updated the About Page to reflect our mission ( I say “our” because you are very much a part of this). I’d love for you to read it. Especially, What is Journey Home to Self? Why Journey Home to Self and Why Now? And, this section called “Pitch Us”
This is a tiny little change but our publication is now called just “Journey Home to Self” rather than “Journey Home to Self with Deepshikha”. I did this because I would really want this space to be yours just as much as it is mine.
For the first time since I started Substack, I also have a plan! (Surprise, surprise!) 🤩
In the month of August, you are going to receive 4 newsletters from me (including this one). This is to share a bit of background and set some context for you as related to the mission of Journey Home to Self.
Please, please share these newsletters with whoever you think is in need of this community.
You can expect the following publications in the coming weeks of August.
The week of August 7th - Who I am and How the Hell did I get here?
The Week of August 14th - What is Sacred Feminine? Why do we need it now?
The Week of August 28th - What does Embodied Spirituality look like? (No flowy gowns or crystal jewelry required). And, activism through our work and inside our community.
Starting in September, we are going to change our schedule and switch things up a bit. I’ll share more about this in the next few weeks. For now, know that this little community would be ready for its leap!
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here. I would love to hear from you.
Tell me, beautiful sister, what would you need from our circle? What ideas, topics, conversations, or resources you are craving to fully embrace your feminine leadership? HIT REPLY & LEMME KNOW!
That’s it for now loves! 🏽
I’ll be back soon. If you are excited to be here, please share our publication with a friend or two.
With so much love,
Note: Journey Home to Self is open to all individuals who identify as women. We welcome diversity and honor the unique experiences and perspectives of all participants.
