Welcome, thanks for stopping by! I produce the Healing Culture Podcast as well as videos I release on my YouTube channel and Facebook page. Media I produce focus on cultural healing, which must happen at the individual and collective levels in society today. I am on Patreon to connect with my listeners and viewers on a platform that lets us create a sense of community and reciprocity. I am based in Vermont’s Champlain Valley, in the Northeastern United States.



Patreon operates much like a membership site. To join my Patreon tribe, first sign up for your account by clicking ‘Sign Up’ at the top of this page. Once your account is up and running, click on the big red ‘Become a Patron’ button and choose your membership tier. I name my tiers after animals I have had profound experiences with, and will share these stories with my patrons over time. You can read through each tier’s rewards by clicking on its link at right (on a computer), or down below (on a mobile device), and can join my tribe for as little as $1US per month. If you want to engage with me about my podcast or videos, you have found the right place! I love hearing from patrons, and am generally able to respond to your messages and comments within a day or so. 



I use funds from Patreon for three main things: First, I use them to upgrade and expand my audio and video recording and editing equipment, and to attend workshops and classes that level-up the quality of what I produce. I also use funds to cover monthly expenses like media and web hosting, along with other occasional expenses like advertising, hiring help, or paying podcast guests’ honorariums. Finally, money raised through Patreon ‘buys out’ my time so I can spend more of it making the content you love and less of it chasing other paying gigs to keep a roof over my head and food on the table. 



I cannot express in words how grateful I was when I found Patreon. As I geared up to start my first podcast in 2017 I thought I would have to choose between hunting for advertisers to fund the venture or doing it as yet another Labor of Love into which I poured my creative energy but never saw any return on that investment. Patreon not only makes it easy to earn revenue from my creative endeavors, it also provides an opportunity to connect with folks who enjoy it. I look forward to building my tribe on this platform, and whether you decide to join me here or not, thanks for visiting this page! 



Do I have to pay in US dollars? No! Your credit card or PayPal account should make the switch from your native currency to US dollars for you.

How do I put my RSS feed into my podcast app to enjoy your premium episodes? First, check out this article if you want to learn how to get and use your RSS feed link. If you use the Apple podcast app, you can use this article to add it to your app. Some non-apple podcast apps can accept your private RSS feed too, check out this page to see whether your favorite app is up to the task.

Are these the only tiers you have? Yes, but I am willing to create more tiers and more rewards if folks want them. Send me a message once you become a patron, and we can iron out the details!

Can I change tiers after I sign up? Yes! Just log in, come to my page, then choose whichever tier you would like to switch to. Click on ‘Continue’ on the next page, just like you did when you first signed up, and go from there.

Can I cancel my membership? Of course, though I will be sad to see you go! To cancel your membership, log in to your account and go to ‘Your Memberships’ in the menu at the upper right of the screen. Click on ‘Edit’ by the membership you want to cancel, then click on ‘Edit or Cancel Payment’ below the big red ‘Update’ button. If you do cancel, please fill out the exit survey. I take past patrons’ feedback to heart!

Do I have to sign up for a Patreon account to support you? If you want the rewards associated with patronage, then yes. If you are not worried about rewards, you can also contribute via PayPal.

I have more questions about how Patreon works that are not answered here. What should I do? Head to this page and submit your question. Patreon staff generally answer them within a few days. You can also head over to this page to find answers to many of your questions without having to wait at all!

Your name will also be listed in the credits of videos released while you are an active patron, unless you request otherwise. Finally, you have a direct line of communication with here on Patreon. Feel free to recommend guests for my podcast, offer feedback about my podcast and videos, and leave comments. I respond to all respectful messages and comments.

Goals
$66 of $1,500 per month
When my monthly earnings reach $1,500, I will use that money to purchase a new laptop which will make video and podcast editing so much faster! My current laptop is 2011 vintage, and while it gets the job done it is ponderously slow.
