2020 PILOT PROGRAM
In 2020, we adapted to the emergent circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic to honor our commitment to the FTC mission, so that our process was transformative and supportive of everyone in the group.
One of the main adjustments in the FTC 2020 Pilot cohort was placing less emphasis on the cohort's requirement to raise additional funds for the grantees, as we collectively navigated new financial and emotional priorities in our lives.
As we all emerge from this catalytic time and integrate the teachings as answers to new challenges,
The Femtheogen Collaborative program structure will reflect the needs and opportunities possible at the time of the next program in the summer of 2022.
Operating at a Dynamic and Magnetic qualities level of framework for project identification and democratic decision-making. Incorporation and valuation of non-intellectual processes like mediation, ceremony, ritual and intuition.
The role of somatic attunement for embodied leadership and transformative relationships in the philanthropic space.
HONORING THE WHOLE SYSTEM
The establishment of the FTC Elder fund as a means of engagement in sacred reciprocity across initiatives, groups and generations.
With $130,000 in total gifts, FTC supported transformative projects in Medicine & Biocultural Conservation, Novel Research & Education, and Decentralization of Power.
“We gave absolutely life changing funds to projects and people who will have an invaluable effect on society, culture, and wellness.” - Femtheogen Participant
FTC defines the 9 month program as the dynamic manifestation of the collaborative's work. Through deeply engaged action, and reflection, FTC seeks to inoculate the mainstream psychedelic space towards a Femtheogen paradigm beyond the program, in which the magnetic feminine aspect is honored and deeply integrated at each level of the philanthropic process.
The Femtheogen Collaborative 2020 inaugural cohort is made up of community catalysts in the indigenous wisdom and psychedelic space across the world.
