About Active Culture Family

Hello and Thank you for taking time to check out our Patreon Page!

About Us

For those of you new to our work, In June of 2015, the nonconforming women-wisdom keepers of San Diego started meeting for monthly women's teaching circles organized through Active Culture Family. In 2018, Active Culture Family gave birth to Medicine Mandala, a year long alternative healthcare practitioner training program that is being given the opportunity to establish roots on sacred land in the Cleveland National Forest at a private homestead.

Our program is an opportunity to begin or recommit to a  journey to right relationship, to ourselves, to our communities, and to the planet and all her inhabitants. 

We are currently being guided by this community to spend this season questioning, dismantling and rebuilding the program on a foundation that includes anti-racism work. This will include professional anti-racist trainings for staff, outside mediation for our groups to address how white supremacy shows up in healing arts spaces, and more leadership, facilitation, and content representative of Black people's lived experience.

To this end we would like to announce that going forward, in addition to our current allocation of BIPOC scholarships for our educational program, we will allocate 10% of all remaining funds raised here toward anti-racist trainings for our staff and for making professionally mediated restorative process available on an ongoing basis to directly and address any perceptions of racial bias that may arise within the long term intimate relationships that form through sharing the kinds of experiences we share here.

What Else Our Patreon Page Supports

• Keeping our most popular free content like Witch Tips and Earthside Survival Guide (Formerly Starseed Survival Guide) alive and available for all

• Land Stewardship. We currently steward 10 acres in the Cleaveland National Forest. We support  For the Wild  the Cleveland National Forest Foundation, and The Warrior Spirit Conference end Ceremony, giving regularly to their ongoing and larger scale healing initiatives that benefit us all.

• Working on our cookbook: The Way of The Cauldron:
A Kitchen Witches’ Guide to The Art of The Ritual Feast

 One of the most transformative experiences for us has been the journey of re-establishing right relationship with the food we eat. Again it is a journey towards health and we are not there yet, but we are so passionate about sharing Gut Health and Traditional Nutrition as a critical step in healing our bodies, our communities and our planet.

Thank you in advance for printing our recipes and guides and integrating them into your self care rituals! May you stay deeply nourished by all the fruits of our earth mother always.

Many Blessings,

Yayita Erin Rivera Merriman
