🌲Weekly Tiny Gift for Patrons🌲

Filled with songs that have helped in my own healing and helping others. You will gain access to this private playlist. We add songs throughout the month.  Each song is a teaching or a healing song. Medicine for your ears and heart!

About

My name is Carla Elise. I am an artist.
Through imperfect writing for imperfect times, visual art, dance and puppetry I create tiny gifts for people and communities experiencing big problems.

I am in an ongoing evolution process  as my work is spirit lead and thus ever changing in response to what is needed from us artists and spirit workers during this intense time. Below is a bit of writing about my current focus.🌹


My current Artist’s Statement:

...I recognize...
as a species
we are experiencing
the pain of loss,
a collective
and
personal grief
(be it consciously or subconsciously)

BECAUSE
we are in the midst of
massive Destruction
D e c o n s t r u c t i o n

We may very well have been born into
an era of extinction.

If we are in our final act,
I feel it is my purpose
to honor life

through visual art, dance and puppetry
that contributes to the making of
a gorgeous finale.

And

If we are to build anew,
I am here to
deliver
messages
&
healing
through art
that helps people
who are engaged in building a new world.

Through my survival
I serve as an example
of how
art creation can save people
from
self destruction.

ART IS MY SPIRITUAL PRACTICE
ART IS MY FIRST LANGUAGE
ART IS MY MEDICINE
ART IS MY RELIGION
ART IS MY HOME

Art reaches places
within our deepest sense of self.
Places many other forms of
healing
&
message delivery
can not touch.

Art has the capacity to:
transform
a person’s value system,
heal
the debilitating aspects of grief,
give hope
where all feels hopeless,
purpose
to a sense of purposelessness,
meaning
to the meaningless.

The art we create at this time
may become a treasure map
for future generations
providing clues
about how to live
in right relationship
with
the Earth
&
fellow
Homo sapiens.

This is why the arts are important,
And
Our artists are important.
This is why I do what I do.


My passion and focus:
When creating tiny gifts be it a painting, poem, dance, my imperfect writing or a ritual object, I am focused on nurturing the inner child of elders, young adults and adults.

Through sharing about my own self-healing journey I hope to help validate spirit communication.

I am passionate about centering the life and wellbeing of Black, Brown, Indigenous, People of Color, fellow LGBTQIA community, and trauma survivors.  

I trust Indigenous wisdom and feel I owe my life’s work to Indigenous communities as a descendant of settlers and for the direct gifts of teaching, healing and personal support that is offered to me by Indigenous loved ones that is so central to my survival and happiness.

I am an Earth lover. Nature is my greatest friend, teacher, healer and guide. 

My hope is that my work helps people, especially “the helpers” of the world to process grief and trauma through the power of creativity and the healing capacity of imagination.

What is Patreon?
Patreon is a membership platform based on the old world idea of patronage. When you become a patron/member you pay a monthly subscription. I create and offer love filled monthly rewards for your patronage.

What you receive as a patron:
I consider my patrons my virtual family with whom I share the more personal details of my life and work that you won’t see anywhere else. 
The rewards you receive will include:
• Techniques you can incorporate into your own self healing practice.
• Personal sharing about my process as a spirit worker and artist to feed your own inspiration and creativity.
• Gifts that connect you more deeply with my work and my spirit family to support you, your life and your work.
• Resources and learning to move us all forward in self liberation and the liberation of our fellow human beings. 

Where I direct funds from your contribution:
All funds will go directly towards building a food garden and tree sanctuary to sustain our little family and other loved ones. I will also continue to use funds to fuel my work helping helpers doing work to dismantle oppression and treat sickness.

Why a monthly subscription/membership and not a one time contribution?
As an artist and spirit worker in service to people, places and animals experiencing big problems, my income is often unpredictable. Because I was helped generously by many people in my times of need, I have a policy of never refusing service to anyone due to their lack of funds. This monthly subscription/membership structure makes my income more predictable so I can continue to serve people regardless of what they can or can’t pay without worrying about how I am going to make ends meet in my own life and work. This also creates an ongoing connection between us as my Patreon family grows and my work evolves! You become a part of the process through your witnessing, sharing and monthly contribution. My patrons are my priority.

If you can’t afford $1 per month you can contribute in other ways😊
:
• Share my work with others who might find it useful 
• Connect me with people you know who might want to contribute to the work.
• Offer your services or products (I love a good trade)
• Respond to the calls to action I aim to inspire.

You can change or cancel your monthly contribution at any time. No questions asked.❤️
