Meet the Clan Mothers
Hear the Clan Mothers share their voices in their own Warrioress Pathway
Alchemist Clan Mother
Elvina means little elf in the Celtic tradition and sacred instrument in Sanskrit, and true to my name I am a musician and sound healer, a lover of the Earth and her elementals and dwell in a magical cottage in an ancient mossy forest. After a brief period ensnared in the patriarchal world of structural engineering, I escaped and have spent many years exploring the world and life as a free spirit, yogini, mother, jewellery designer, chimes maker, and more recently as creatress of clay mythical creatures and animal allies. As and Alchemist, I am deeply inspired by the shamanic and spiritual realms, inner journeying, womb healing and sacred sexuality. AMA’s vision speaks to my soul and I feel moved to support this birthing for the highest good of Gaia and all Beings.

Medicine Woman Clan Mother
I have been travelling many paths, within and without - a meandering nomad with no and many homes. I feel that rediscovering the beauty, passion and wildness in nature is an expression of our own inner being. It can be the bridge to reunite with our primordial, whole and sacred self – our blueprint for healing.
In reverence to the vision of the Amazonian Arts, I have drawn from my experience in holistic manual therapy and ecology, a deep love of nature, and an appreciation of life in all its facets to offer the Elemental Foundations workshops. May the shift begin...
Artisan Clan Mother
I am a jeweller, painter and graphic artist. As the Vision Artisan, I am creating the archetypal images of the 13 Warrioresses and the Overarching Allies.
Each month I sit with the Vision Mother and Gate-Keeper, deeply listening to what has been received about a specific Warrioress, and then begin the process of bringing HER through. This is, to put it lightly, a MOMENTOUS task full of magick, deep stories, spells, dedication and profound love.

Huntress Clan Mother
I am a mother, daughter, sister, wife, shiatsu practitioner, gardener and creative. I have also studied environmental biology majoring in Botany. I have been a project manager, research assistant and worked in the field of energy efficiency so my hats are many and paths meandering. Now I am finding stillness. My passions are holding sacred space for women and for healing, growing a food forest on our land and spending time in nature making mandalas. I am the Clan Mother of the Huntress and working with her and her allies, I have found myself dedicated to beating my drum to my soul song and cultivating my own Fierce Feminine.

Wildling Clan Mother, SSW Graduate & SSW Year 3/3 Apprentice Teacher 4SJ
I am a cosmic soul, a child of this universe, a daughter of this beloved planet.
I feel that many (if not all) of the answers to our current questions can be sourced directly from nature and the robust ways of living with Mother Earth, as practiced by our ancestors and the ancestors of the lands on which we live.
My return-to-self journey has seen me rediscover (and embrace) my own highly sensitive nature, and my innate connection to the more-than-human world.
I am an alchemist, and love creating vibrational essences and tinctures as well as shamanic tools such as frame drums and rattles; all-ways seeking inspiration and direction from the natural world, and my own inner knowing.
As an energy healer, kinesiologist, shamanic craftswoman (spiritual midwife), daughter, sister, friend, lover and (clan) mother I am consciously choosing in each moment to model the way back… to our innate (ancient) wisdom and deep connection to All-that-Is.

Banshee Clan Mother, SSW Graduate & SSW Year 1/3 Apprentice Teacher 4SJ
I am mother of 2 daughters. I am swim school owner, a teacher of swimming and appreciated in the community as a Water Whisperer. I am an ABA therapist for children on the Autism spectrum and I have Bachelor Fine Arts degree. My passion lies with and for the frame drum and the sacred ancient technology it holds for healing and transformation. I see myself now in my Maga years as a steward for the Great Mother, in service to the feminine awakening and reclamation of the Goddess culture.
Messenger Clan Mother
Nioda is a name given to me through the Aether, meaning natural and free. And so, I fervently pursue my inner liberties. I am equally as passionate about all beings finding their freedom, whatever that means for them. Finding their voice, their peace, their connection. I love working with the body, entering the sacred space of communication with this vessel that guides our life. I have studied Spinal Flow Technique and am currently studying counselling and nutrition. I felt deeply called to the Messenger and wholeheartedly enjoy her teachings and all that the AMA offers.
Determinatress Clan Mother
I have always been on a quest for Knowledge and Truth. It’s like a never-ending
thirst that cannot be quenched. I enjoy reading, listening, and discussing all
myriads of life from history, science, politics, veiled topics, metaphysical
teachings, and natural, earthy living. I am a Lover, Mother, Daughter, Aunt,
Friend and Earth Keeper though I ultimately see myself as a Soul on an eternal
It is in these times that our own personal Truth must speak up for ourselves
and we must start to make choices to move towards that Truth. As the
Determinatress Clan Mother, I cannot make these decisions for you, however, I
am open to discussions over a pot of tea and cake.
You will know your Truth when a deep peace fills you and your decision cannot
be swayed – not by governments, bosses, family, or friends. You will know your
Truth and it will set you free.
Protectress Clan Mother
It’s been a long road of self-discovery upon which I've experienced the full range of Protectress shadows and fears in order to bring forward her wisdom and strengths at this time. I am a guide and mentor to children, mothers, and families. I am a hugger, lover, mother, sister, friend, and shamanic seeker. I am Clan Mother for the Protectress: a guide and role model for a new way. Together we can co-create a nourishing community, built upon connection, positive communication, shared values, and integrity. Now my life becomes my purpose. To live life fully, as an embodiment of the Protectress.
Merciful One Clan Mother
I am a grandmother, a self-confessed tree hugger and dirt worshiper. I have been a seeker of knowledge
my entire life journey. The healing and magical arts, have been part of my world for many decades. As a
child, my mother taught me to love and respect nature.
The Earth is my Mother. I feel a deep connection with her and have spent my life defending her as an
environmental activist. I live in my solar powered cabin in the foothills of the Dorrigo Escarpment.
Through meditation and deep listening, ritual and spiritual practice, I weave magic into the tapestry of my life. Being at one with nature and myself brings me peace and serenity. Creative thinking and expression are close to my heart. Compassion and courage are my personal allies... I am resilient.
I feel inspired by the Amazonian Arts and have mounted the Black Unicorn! I feel blessed to be on this path, exploring my own fierce feminine through the 13 archetypes. In this Great Turning, I have heeded the call, to be the Clan Mother of the Merciful One. We are all interconnected in the web of life and I look forward to transitioning with you.
Archeress Clan Mother
I am daughter, sister, friend. My life has been a slow weaving of fierce and fiery independence seeking to balance with my vulnerability and create deep, raw connections. I have worked in health care as a nurse, manager and executive yet was always searching for something else. I am a womb massage therapist and my passion is supporting women to remember the importance of rest and self-nurture, re connect back with themselves and understand the power of our cyclical nature so that we may live and love more in tune with ourselves and the natural world around us. I am most at home in the forest. Nature is my remedy. I value rest and find peace and awareness in the stillness of the void- it is my most treasured place.
Warrior Queen Clan Mother
Embodying the Warrior Queen and birthing my ‘Leo’ son has awakened my inner Lioness. She purrs at the things that fill up her cup; nature, dance & art, womb healing & her soul family. She roars when she is working with her craft of supporting others, especially our youth, to access their inner power (their magick)! My journey has led me down many paths where I have witnessed and experienced the various depths of power. I have walked as a Paramedic and Teacher within the health and educational systems, seeing the disempowerment and fear of self-sovereignty. I have stood on the fringes of that same system delivering much needed programs and offering reformation of current practices.
My travels, creativity and spiritual practices have guided me deeper down the path of self-healing. As I stand in my own power in this sacred life my womb remembers… she remembers who she really is. What a sacred gift.
