You also get updates and early access to fresh writing (plus some extras) from my forthcoming book.
You will also get access my Patron-only livestream discussion on Zoom hosted every month. Think of it as a kind of literary consciousness culture book club. We select either one book or one essay (or collection of essays) every month.
Topics are voted on by Patrons or curated by me (integral philosophy, cultural studies, metaphysics, etc.)

"I think of myself as someone who thinks largely through writing." – Samuel Delany
"Truth is a matter of the imagination." — Ursula K Le Guin
Welcome! A few words about me: I am a writer. As Delany states so well, I find that my best ideas come "largely through writing." Or outlining. Or reading. The text, in all its facets, is the terroir from which fermented spirits are produced.
Briefly, I am an author (Seeing Through the World), writer, editor (Revelore Press) podcast (MUTATIONS) and integral scholar and researcher. I read and write about subjects like the philosophy and history of consciousness (kulturphilosophie), consciousness studies, "new paradigm" thinking and integral studies (integral philosophy and transdisciplinary work).
My first book, Seeing Through the World, offers an introduction to the philosophy and writing of German-Swiss phenomenologist, Jean Gebser, an important integral scholar and intellectual mystic from the 20th century. This is the first introductory text published on Gebser, for the English reading world, in a few decades.
I am working on my next book, which you will likely get a peek into through this Patreon.
As mentioned, I am an editor, "Curator of Philosophies," at Revelore. We're working on a number of exciting book projects and anthologies, including the same-titled Mutations: Art, Consciousness and the Anthropocene. As I put it on our page, I'm interested in writing and editing "books that open the future." I see this project ultimately as community building: writing and publishing each other, engaging in discourse as "public intellectuals," and producing new cultures that wrestle with the spiritual and philosophies issues of our time.
Many of these books have to do with what William Irwin Thompson calls "planetary culture," Charles Eisenstein dubbed "The New Story," and Jean Gebser calls "integral aperspectivity." All of this work is aimed to produce some inkling of the integral world, and an integral culture.
A Support Space and a Community Hub
This Patreon hub serves as a support space for these publication projects (writing, podcasting, editing, book publishing) and a community hub to engage with you about them.
We host regular Zoom calls around various subjects (see below), a Discord server, and a Discourse forum.
MUTATIONS SALON/BOOK CLUB
I host monthly themed salons (typically on Sundays) for Patrons to discuss podcasts, book clubs, and explore philosophical and spiritual practices together.
Thank you for joining me here and supporting and creating these endeavors! We can build them together.
Seeing Through the World:Jean Gebser and Integral Consciousness (Revelore Press 2018)
"Part companion piece to Gebser’s magnum opus,The Ever-Present Origin, part inspired treatise on an integral futurism, Jeremy guides the reader through the structures of consciousness and incepts integral scholarship as a divination that scries the age of ecological collapse and the ontological recodings of the Anthropocene."
Mutations: Art, Consciousness and the Anthropocene (Revelore Press 2020) is an anthology project inspired by the term coined by Jean Gebser, implicating consciousness transformation as a series of discontinuous leaps into new modes of thinking and being in the world. Forthcoming late 2020.
I'm the current president of the Jean Gebser Society — an academic society exploring the work of the integral philosopher — and have served as their conference convener for the past few years. There is a tremendous wealth of intelligence, heart, and spirit in this community of integral practitioners, and I encourage you to join us for the next conference.
How Your Funding Helps
It gives me more time, energy, and focus on the anthology projects at hand, on speaking with teachers, organizing conversations for the public discussion ("Mutations”), my own book writing and book research (currently, my next book: Fragments of an Integral Futurism).
