Thank you Dreamers!

As our saying goes, Always Dream, Even When Awake. What this means to us, is that we're 24 hour dreamers. We live, sleep, eat and die for the big dream. Not the small, maybe dream we stumble through life in half awake. The BIG YES DREAM that wakes us up at 4:00 AM and keeps us loving our life! And, we help others step into their big dream every day. We need everyone on this planet dreaming big.

A bit of back story...

We find ourselves at the beginning of another new year, deeply committed to teaching kindness, sharing Taoist and Shamanic wisdom and supporting personal transformation as a path towards stronger communities as well as global transformation.

We're so grateful to our patrons and looking forward to giving back more through Patreon. We'd like Patreon to be a place where we highlight the insights and wisdom that arise through our weekly teaching sessions. We'd like to share these teachings on Relationships, Taoism, Midlife, Shamanism, Healing and Spiritual Practices with a broader community - where everyone benefits from this work. We'll post the raw teachings, not meant for our public blog or website.

Our website is a continually evolving art form, and we've put over a decade of work into it. We take pride in the final articles, blog posts, audios and videos we create and share. Most of our work is offered for free and we're looking forward to making our blog posts and articles even more accessible through Patreon via direct emails.

If you're new to Patreon, basically this is a place where if you like our creations such as our website, articles, blogs, audios and videos and want to support us in sharing them more, creating more, as well as building more community, this is the place you can do that.

2017 was a challenging year in that after the election we found our website traffic started to decline. Yet, the number of our clients (people we actually talked to) increased! So, we decided it was time to reach out, expand a bit and Patreon seems to fit our current model really well.

In this global initiation that we are all a part of, all of us are being asked to go deeper, dream bigger and stand strong together.  And, so, we are expanding our circle of patrons so that we may all continue to go deeper together. We're excited to offer patron-only materials through a dynamic process, listening to your input and creating a team to help us shape future materials!

As a Personal Tao patron, we also hope you'll get involved more in the Personal Tao and Awakening Dragon global community through our polls, comments and live stream.

Whether you're backing us for a dollar or a thousand...Thank You.
We're thrilled you're a part of our global Personal Tao community and we look forward to connecting!

Big Love from the Big Island,
Julie & Casey
