I have been weaving Ojos de Dios yarn mandalas ever since the late 1960's, after seeing an amazing similarity of such work from both Huicholi natives of Mexico, and Tibetan lamas. Since then I have held workshops in the United States and India, and given away many thousands copies of the free instructions, now available on  my website, YarnMandalas.com. I also founded the facebook group, Ojos de Dios, yarn mandalas of the world

Through these websites, I continue to post instructions and tips on a regular basis, and answer questions from facebook posters. Now in my life I want to spend more time writing up my experiences and spreading my knowledge through blogs, expanding and updating my instructions, and write an e-book that chapter by chapter tells the story of my creative life with yarn mandalas, and also my life as spiritual search, that brought me to accepting Meher Baba as Avatar of the Age, and my personal spiritual guide.

In 2017 I moved to Oaxaca, Mexico, where I continue to weave mandalas, and hope to hold workshops, and train apprentices. Currently, April 2019, I hope to start spending much more time with my writing.

Tiers
Pledge $1 or more per month
Will give you access to my blog and videos here on Patreon, which will includes clips from my updated instructions and book chapters
Pledge $3 or more per month
This $3 monthly pledge will give you all updates to my instructions that I normally sell on my jaysmandalas.etsy.com shop, which will include HD videos detailing every little detail of my work processes.
Pledge $7 or more per month
For a monthly pledge of $7 you will receive, in pdf format via email, Chapters of my book as I finish them. This book will tell the story of my life, especially as it relates to how I became a weaver of yarn mandalas, and how I grew as a person because of my weavings. Links to videos will be included. You will also receive all updates to my instructions, which will be incorporated into the book. I also would like to have chapters on other weavers of yarn mandalas around the world. You will also have full access to my Patreon blog.
Pledge $12 or more per month
For a pledge of $12 a month you will receive access to my Patreon blog, updates to my instructions and chapters of my book as I finish them, and up to 5 hours of personal instructions via Skype.
Pledge $20 or more per month
only 25 left
For $20 a month, you will go on my itinerary list to travel to your city, stay in your home or home of a friend that you provide, and get personal lessons from me and for a few of your friends in that home. This applies to anywhere in the world, once I have an income from Patreon pledges of at least $500 a month. Travel is dependent on my health and ability to get a visa to your country. Travel to Russia is a problem because of visa requirements, but if I cannot travel to Russia, or another country with visa problems, I will pay for YOU to travel to my home in India, where, once my pledges reach $500 a month, I plan on spending at least 3 months of every year. Anyone pledging $20 a month will have the option of, instead of me traveling to you, I will pay for you to travel either to India, or to my home in Asheville NC, USA, whichever is closer. Please accept that it may be as long as 2 years from the time my pledges reach $1000 before I arrange to travel to your country, depending on the number of people that pledge this much. I am currently setting a limit of 25 for this pledge amount and rewards. You will also receive updates to my book and instructions and access to my Patreon blog. As much as possible, I will travel to places in the order in which the pledges are received. Of course, pledges from the same country, or from two or more close together countries, will be combined into one trip when feasible.  The only exceptions are: $20 Pledges from people within North Carolina will be honored within 2 years of total pledges reaching $100. Pledges within other parts of USA, Mexico, or Canada will be honored within 2 years of total pledges reaching $200.
Pledge $30 or more per month
only 4 left
People who pledge $30 a month will receive all the rewards of the lessor pledges, plus you will be able to arrange, in your city, workshops for me to teach weaving Ojos de Dios yarn mandalas, and keep for yourself any and all profits from these workshops. Again, I think I would have problems getting the proper visa for Russia, so consider this before pledging. Other countries I would only hold workshops if I can travel on a work visa, so also consider this before pledging this amount. I would do my best to get a work visa, but I can't guarantee my ability to do so.  Also, please note, my ability to travel to workshops is, like with the $20 option, dependent on the total of all pledges reaching $500 a month, which may or not happen, and then I reserve the right to schedule travel to any particular country for as late as two years after pledges reaching $500 a month. Any questions, be sure to message me. As much as possible, I will travel to places in the order in which the pledges are received.  The only exceptions are: $30 Pledges from people with in North Carolina will be honored within 2 years of total pledges reaching $100. Pledges within other parts of USA, Mexico, or Canada will be honored within 2 years of total pledges reaching $200.
Major supporter

For supporters who really want to help me have the time to put into my writing, and have the ability to see chapters as I write them, and to choose which parts of my life they would like to see posted here on Patreon first.

You just really want to be a major help in getting me to write my life story, and receive chapters as they get finished.

Ultimate patron
$100 or more per month only 2 left

Anyone who pledges at this level not only greatly contributes to my ability to devote time to writing my life story, but will not only be able to choose what parts of my life I publish here first, but will also BE in the book, as part of my story. I assume that anyone pledging at this level has a special interest either in my life as follower of Avatar Meher Baba, or as a weaver of yarn mandalas. Anyone pledging at this level will have a chapter in the eventual book devoted to their own stories about either of these, or, other aspect of their lives they would like to see included. We will work together to see this happen. 

Goals
$44 of $100 per month
Bringing in $100 a month will go along way towards giving me free time to put into my writing, and to save some towards traveling to the USA every six months.
