Curious patrons get a monthly update on my creative pursuits, released on or very near each new moon, and a direct line of communication with me through Patreon's messaging system. I respond to all respectful messages.
Committed patrons get all of rewards of Curious patrons, plus advanced access to all of my creative content. They also get access to premium versions of podcast episodes (accessible via RSS feed) that feature additional content and that have my Patreon plug edited out, podcast transcripts, and show notes. Finally, committed patrons also get discounts on online classes I offer, and PDF and audio versions of my essays.
Serious patrons get all of the lower tiers' rewards, plus access to a Zoom Q & A call once per month and the ability to participate in a monthly book group beginning in January 2020.
Welcome!I produce the Embracing Apocalypse podcast, the occasional video for my YouTube channel, and the occasional essay. My media supports those who are waking up to many social and environmental challenges that define today's world. I want this media to be benefit the maximum number of people, and at the same time want to earn income from it so I do not burn out. Patreon helps me navigate this paradox.
Patreon operates much like a membership site. To join my Patreon community, first create an account by clicking ‘Sign Up’ at the top of this page. Once your account is set up, click on the big red ‘Become a Patron’ button and choose your membership tier.
I use funds from Patreon to cover expenses associated with media production, hosting, marketing, and to buy out my time so I can spend more of it making the content you love while keeping a roof over my head and food on the table. I look forward to building community on this platform, and whether you decide to join me here or not, thanks for visiting this page!
