"I think of myself as someone who thinks largely through writing." – Samuel Delany

"Truth is a matter of the imagination." — Ursula K Le Guin

About Me:


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 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.

Books


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 2019) 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. 

✍︎



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 (funds for purchasing research books, etc.).

Now, here is the fun part.

  • Donations of $1 (Mutant) get you access to Patron-only content, like sneak peaks at unpublished writing, first cuts of Mutations podcast episodes, and early announcements/discount codes for upcoming Nura courses.
  • $5 and up (Super Mutant) get you a special Thank You note in my book, plus access to the Mutations salon calls hosted on Zoom.
  • $10 (Super Team) and up gets you all the previous perks plus the ability to vote on the topic for the next salon.
  • Lastly, $20 (Cosmic Beneficiary) gets you a Thank You in my books plus a one-on-one private Skype/Zoom call to talk about anything. Pick my brain. Get my editorial advice. Network about what you're creating—building the culture is what this is about.
  • Anything beyond that... Let’s talk! More one-on-one calls and collaborations a possibility.

✍︎

Do you want to help foster a literary, re-invigorated consciousness culture with new research and a community hardwired into the "Geistige" of a complex, planetary age?

Let us lean into the concept of "mutation," and inhabiting "mutants" in the best sense of that word (beyond its science fiction connotation) as a creative leap from origin (ursprung). 

Let's build the future in the present.


Tiers
Mutant
$1 or more per month
You threw down a dollar for me — thank you! 


For this, I name you a conspiring mutant and you receive special, Patron-only early access updates from about upcoming upcoming publications, upcoming classes, and new literary projects via Revelore Press!


You also get updates and early access to fresh writing (plus some extras) from my forthcoming book.

Super Mutant [BOOK CLUB]
$5 or more per month
In addition to receiving Mutant updates, your name will appear in all print of my publications under "Super Mutants". 


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.)


Super Team
$10 or more per month
You're on the Super Team! You can begin making cunning plans with me. No, really. At this level you get all the previous perks plus you get to vote on the topic for the next virtual salon.


What do you want to explore?


Your name will also be listed under Super Team in my forthcoming book publication.

Cosmic Beneficiary
$20 or more per month
Wow! You're practically my "library angel." This level of donation easily helps me pay for books and other nourishment that a writer needs to grow. 


In addition to all previous perks, you receive a special note in my forthcoming book publication under Cosmic Beneficiaries.


You also receive a one-on-one session with me to talk about your own projects, get editorial feedback, or work out a philosophical question. I'm your philosopher-for-hire. ;-) 


Last but not least, you'll receive a discount code for all Nura Learning classes.

Ultra Cosmic Patron
$50 or more per month only 10 left

Patreon says "Unicorns" are the ultimate tier, but I disagree. You're a cosmic patron, so you get all the previous perks, plus a free Nura class of your choice, a one-on-one Zoom call with me each cycle, PLUS you get access to the Seeing Through the World audiobook.

Goals
$239 of $700 per month
We're off! This is a good start. That's a hefty chunk of change, which means more time for book writing, editing, and publishing. It also means more time (and more fun) with patron perk fulfillments...
