You like us, you really do like us! We imagine with this type of support it would be equivalent to you buying us a coffee, and we are enjoying a nice conversation about the many things we have in common. We am so excited that you believe in what we are doing!

You will get everything in the lower tiers, plus access to our not-so-secret online community with other Patron members that are supporting us. Think of it as a board room for investors and board members to share ideas, stories, and visions. Plus, you'll have your name inscribed on our supporter page!

As a thank you, we'd like to drop a short printed t-shirt in the mail for you.  Plus we're going to send you small tokens of gratitude every 3 months!

About Poised

Our mission is to eliminate trauma bonding, normalize mental health and encourage self-growth for mental clarity and emotional wellness while navigating the tiring constraints of Asian Parents. In doing so, our biggest goal is to put an end to generational trauma within this minority group.

Poised is a repository of curated resources, articles, and advice on a multitude of self-discovery and Asian culture topics. These topics include but are not limited to psychology, sociology, personality traits/psychology, understanding the history of Asian cultures, philosophy beliefs such as filial piety, metaphysics, spirituality, mindfulness, meditation, and so much more. 

We also have a community forum for stories, community support, and unprofessional advice to share what has helped us along the way.  There is also a Wellness Library, suggesting motivational and self-help books and an archive of motivational and educational YouTube videos. 

We have also built Poised Kinship Collection, an online shop that curates quality yet affordable products to remind our community of our journey and provide items to help find moments of peace, build mindfulness, and assist in our self-growth.  Soon, we will also be providing journaling prompts, mindfulness and meditation guides, and workbooks - free of charge.

Our goal is not to charge our community for these resources other than the online shop.  Having a mission of ending personal suffering and generational trauma, we want to reach anyone willing to put their best foot forward without having to worry about budgeting and finances.

By encouraging others to embark on a self-discovery journey, we believe that we all can experience ourselves as unique and separate individuals. We are then empowered to make changes, build on our areas of strength, and recognize areas where we would want to make improvements we become happier.  Correlating this with a deeper understanding of our Asian parents, through humanizing them and understanding the root of Asian culture that drives their mindset, we will no longer be reacting to our parents but responding to them from a better mental space.  

There's a lot of work to be done, but the mission and goals of Poised are worth it.  We hope you see the importance of our mission support us on this journey as well!
