About

Art is good medicine.

Join the Brave Joy Collective for new art & inspiration
in your mailbox* every month. 

I'm Melanie Weidner, an artist with a passion for beauty and spirituality.  For over 25 years, I've been listening with my soul to create images that encourage our spiritual growth, guidance, and healing. (See ListenForJoy.com)  Now, I’m offering this new Patreon group project: the Brave Joy Collective Art Subscription.

Each month, I do a deep dive of prayer and listening on behalf of all of us.  I focus on a particular word or soulful phrase, and use it to make a brand new piece of art.  (Yay for brave art as medicine!)  Then I write some spiritual practice ideas on the theme to help us stay steady, grow our souls, and even find some joy in these challenging times.  I'll use inclusive language as a welcome to any faith or spiritual path.  Imagine us all engaging these monthly intentions together— what a powerful collective prayer.

Of course I keep all this as a surprise until it arrives in your mailbox!*  Patreon members are the first to see and hold this fresh art and engage these practices.  You receive a 5x7" color art print with text insert, mailed on (or very near) the 3rd of each month, delivered by the trusty US Postal system.  (US addresses only.)*

Share the joy by choosing to receive more identical envelopes to give away.  They’re great for birthday gifts, good friends, prayer partners, connection across the miles or across town, spiritual gatherings, or as prompts for therapy, social work, spiritual direction, and more.  I mail them in a package with your own envelope, and you just add stamps and addresses for your loved ones.

This is so exciting, and sometimes we want to talk about it.  Members can sign on to Patreon anytime and tell stories in the comment section.  (Totally optional.)  Every week I post an update about my creative process or spiritual journey too.

I hope each month you’ll find something valuable in your Brave Joy Collective envelope.  I trust that on some months it will be just EXACTLY what you needed!  You can always safely unsubscribe too, at any time, for any reason.

Your support and connection mean the world to me.  You make this new art work possible.  Thank you, thank you.

I can’t wait to create and see what happens each month!  Watch your mailbox… and let’s be brave in meaningful ways while we look and listen for joy.

Love and blessing to us all,
Melanie


FAQ Details:

* Subscription available for US postal addresses only(Please forgive me, international friends, but I have to start out this way and hopefully expand later.)

• I'm grateful to offer 25 discount memberships-- for anyone who needs a bit of art when finances are tight.  Also for first responders, essential service workers, or others who could use extra support right now.  

• Your Patreon membership subscription will recur each month at the price you choose.  Credit cards are charged on the 1st of the month.  Subscription art print envelopes will be mailed out to paying members on or near the 3rd of the month.  You can upgrade or downgrade your membership tier to receive more or fewer envelopes at any time, or safely unsubscribe at any time for any reason.  Please keep track of your log-on information to make any changes to your Patreon account.

• Patreon online weekly updates and commenting are for members/subscribers only.

• Patreon is not able to offer gift subscriptions at this time, so you get to mail your extra envelopes to friends and family yourself.  Postage for extra envelopes not included.

• If you'd like to order more than 8 envelopes per month, please contact me directly at [email protected], thanks.

Questions?  Write me at [email protected] or use the message link above.  Since I'm focused on creating, please give me a few days to respond.  Thank you!
