Hey You.

It's so nice to see you here! I'm super thrilled to be here too. 

I'm excited have a home for all the ways I like to create spaces and experiences that help you discover, face and re-write the bullshit stories in your head. You know, the ones that make your life feel harder, more exhausting and futile than it really needs to be. I believe deep down to my very tippy toes that when we realize how much of our experience of life is just a bullshit story we've told ourselves forever, it's like drinking a little shot of nirvana.

What will you be getting?

A bucket load of "ahs" and "ahas" and a few "ha-has" (oh, god please don't kill me, I just had to do it) through podcasts, You Tube videos, live & pre-recorded webinars, and small group and private coaching conversations.

How will I be helping you get these "ahs" and "ahas" exactly?

By showing you how to build the internal mind muscles you need to separate yourself from the voices in your head that make you feel like a mouse, tell you to shut the fuck up, troll your mind at 3AM, write you hate mail, are convinced IT (IT being what ever you REALLY want) is too scary, stupid or hard, that drive you nuts, disgust you, embarrass you...oh, you get the point.

What's the point?

The point is that when you learn to sit with, face, embrace (and yes, even love) all those parts that you normally shove in the dark recesses of your closet, you get all sorts of cool stuff that you never thought you could have like, oh, I don't know - feeling like you finally fucking belong here on earth. 

Again, what will you be getting?

Through this Patreon page, you will get to be a part of a community of bad-ass, no bullshit seekers who are wanting more self-love, creative expression and ways to create a better life together on earth.

Together we will get out of own way and wake up from the old, tired stories that rule our inner lives, but no longer work.

Together we will find new perspectives, and inspiration to live out that thing we, here in America, like to call, "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness" in deeper and fresher ways.

Being a member will give you access to new weekly videos (monologues and interviews), audio podcasts, online classes, downloadable meditations/imaginal exercises, group meetups, in-person workshops and one-on-one coaching and conversations.

Your patronage here will enable me to employ real humans who have the technological and administrative know-how to make this all work, and take my work to a new level so that I can reach more people who want what we want.

And yes, do not worry. I will say "fuck" a lot.

How did I get here?
If you know me through my memoir or solo show, "A Carlin Home Companion," you know a little it about how I got here. The book tells the tale of my personal story about my life with my family, and the long road I've taken to figure out how to feel a bit more normal than I used to. 

If you've been a past listener to my podcast "Waking from the American Dream," you know I love to explore ways to be more sane, creative and happy in life. I've used my own path as an example, and I've interviewed creatives and deep thinkers about their approach to work and life, how they manage in the current state of the world, and what it takes to get out of their own way in order to bring something original to the world.

My masters in Jungian psychology informs my understanding of how much our unconscious narratives rule our lives, and that when we learn to face them and embrace them, magic can happen. My 20+ years of studying and practicing Buddhist philosophy and meditation has taught me how to see that we are more than this ego identity, and that freedom and ease comes from our ability to be with "what is." My training in life coaching and leadership has prepared me to lead others to find their truth and bliss.

Thank you.
Which ever level of patronage is right for you, I thank you for becoming a patron. I look forward to giving you a little something each week, each month, each season, that will make this all too modern life feel more manageable, joyful and meaningful.

I can't begin to tell you how grateful I am that you are here. This is a big gulp leap for me, and it's great to know that we are leaping together.
