SEVA

Our SEVA sisters (service) are essential to the magic, intention, creation and feeling of our meeting. We are grateful to the sisters who feel the call to be of service. Without these incredible beings, we couldn't make the magic happen completely.

In the SEVA ticket, you only pay the expenses of the place to enter the MWG in exchange for half a shift to serve in the process. Schedules and service areas are agreed with the Sevas Coordination as soon as registration ends.

Todas as irmãs e irmãos que farão o SEVA chegam ao local três dias antes  da data de início, até o meio dia e ficam dois dias antes após o evento, auxiliando na montagem e desmontagem da Villa, sendo permitida qualquer atividade recreativa fora desse horário de compromisso.

* If you do not arrive within 3 hours of the day and the agreed time for the arrival of SEVAs, you will lose your position and if you still want to participate in the MWG, you will have to pay the entire ticket, unless you have made agreed agreements with the Coordinators of Sevas.

Each will have a work area that is defined during the guardian meeting, although you may be asked to assist in some other areas during the initial organization and the decoration and cleaning at the end.

All sisters and brothers are welcome in all activities and ceremonies, as long as the agreed service is ready. We are looking for candidates who are flexible and are willing to perform various tasks in favor of the magic of Medicine Women Gathering.

What does the term “SEVA” say?

SEVA: Selfless service without any expectation of result or prize for its accomplishment.

 

SEVA, originally, GURU-SEVA, means 'selfless service' and is the action taken without thinking about its results. Seva is our natural state, which has been replaced by a new exchange system within society as we know it. Our service in contribution to something has always been and will always be necessary within any system structure, but when you become able to serve without any interest in receiving something in return, there is a complete disidentification of your ego and what you plan to be. The new thinking behind your action takes you on a path of learning and balancing the mind.

In this journey, we often need to do practices of altruistic actions so that we achieve this deconstruction and balance by the middle path.

When we serve and work under a new eye, with no projections that expect to receive any kind of benefit in return, we learn much deeper than we can imagine. Initially we may even think that only the other is benefiting from the action and at that moment our ego screams and wants to return to the old exchange system, as it feels at a disadvantage. There is a trajectory until the learning in this experience becomes available to you in the form of knowledge. At that moment, you understand that your growth was much greater than any service offered.

Our SEVA sisters (service) are essential to the magic, intention, creation and feeling of our meeting.

We are grateful to the sisters who feel the call to be of service. Without these incredible beings, we couldn't make the magic happen completely.

 

 

IMPORTANT: The organization is responsible for food for the days before and after MWG. Therefore, they only pay for meals during the event, if they do not fast.
