Basically, I could (and sometimes do) talk about the nature of soul all day long. I'm lucky to have some deep-souled folks around me to do that with. I thought I'd invite you to listen in, in case you're not so lucky as me.

So, when you pledge to be my patron, it's kind of like I'm your favourite barista and you're leaving something in the tip jar.  Or I've invited you over for dinner and you're bringing the wine. Or I helped you move and you're buying the pizza and beer. There's obviously no obligation, but the acknowledgement really means a lot.

On a more cerebral level, I created my show so I could capture the thought-provoking ideas of my smarty pants friends and normalize topics like spiritual longing, the collective unconscious, and the decline and re-building of culture. The world needs some medicine, my friends. So I'm seeding soulful thoughts and amending the soil of our culture with words like "spirit", "sorrow", "initiation" and "reclamation". We create our world with our words. Lets speak of great things.

The Numinous Podcast is published every week or so by me, Carmen Spagnola, using an old version of Garage Band with a microphone macguyvered onto a swing-arm lamp and pantyhose stretched over an embroidery hoop to reduce the pops on my s's, t's and p's.

With your support, I could upgrade my sound quality. I could do fewer Skype interviews and more on-the-spot recording or capture conversations when I'm travelling! I could have a sound engineer do a pass over my shows to equalize the volume and smooth it all out before publishing! (Mercy, I'd faint if I could do that. That would be amazing to me.) I could upgrade my computer so it doesn't have to "think" for 30 seconds every time I click and reduce my editing time by HOURS. I could get a real intro with better music professionally recorded! (Still using my husband's mellifluous voice, of course). 

You may not feel as irked by my sound quality as I am, in which case you may just want to support as a way to indicate that you like what I'm doing and would like more of it. In either case, thank you thank you thank you for your support!

Thank you! Big virtual hug! Patreon supporters come first and your pledge puts you front-of-line for new content a day earlier than the rest of the world. I once read a great manifesto that an artist only really needs 1,000 True Fans to make both a life and a living as a creator. My goal is to build a global community of True Fans who listen regularly. I'm making this show for you. You'll also be part of the Patreon-only feed where you can access me with your follow up questions and requests.

Wow! I'm so touched! Deep bow to you. You really get me and I really want to enrich your life. As a True Supporter, receive a special mp3 meditation that I created to love you up and let you know how valued, special and awesome you are. You receive it the first month and get to keep it re-listen forever. Plus, I'll credit you in my show notes (on my website) as an episode sponsor. If you have a business, that credit can be a link to your site. And, of course, you get the shows a day early and the exclusive Patreon-only feed, too!

You complete me. I'm overwhelmed. Not only will you receive all of the previous bonus treats, (early content, mp3, website sponsor credit), you will also receive a special care package in the mail. It might be a sacred object for your altar, a blessing stone, a crystal that made me think of you or a book I thought you'd like, you never know - it's a surprise!
Pledge $100 or more per episode.

You're simply magic. Your patronage is like a unicorn just sang my favourite song. In addition to the early shows, the mp3, the website sponsorship link and the care package, I will also thank you personally on air and send you a monthly surprise. Because you're magic xo

A much warmer sound for recording in my office. The ability to record at other people's kitchen tables. That would be heaven for me.
