Hi! My name is Magenta Ceiba. I'm an artist, musician and healer who has dedicated my life to helping humanity find a balanced, equitable way of living on this planet. I use my skills to illustrate inspiring futures and document current realities. I also help people share resources where they have common goals.

I work as the executive director of  Bloom Network , an international social network and incubator for regenerative culture. "Regenerative" generally means when you're living in a way that fertilizes the grounds for more life. It involves closing the loop on our production cycles so we don't create waste or damage ecosystems. It involves creating equitable social and economic systems that are healthy for people and planet. Examples of regenerative culture include:
    >> worker-owned cooperatives
    >> community forestry (where instead of clear-cutting forest to graze cattle, people replenish forest habitats and earn money from crops that sustainably grow there)
    >> restorative justice (instead of putting people in jail, the criminal and affected parties go through a mediation process to decide what reparations need to be made)

You get the idea. My first and second goals with this Patreon are to create media pieces about regenerative solutions I've come across, featuring people and projects so more people can learn about the inspiring actions that are happening right now that they can participate in to make their lives and communities healthier. I hope these media pieces will also help to network existing projects together so they can share resources and partner with each other.

Currently, there tend to be subculture pockets of this information, where people are only circulating their wisdom in a small niche audience or political affiliate group, whereas in aggregate it's a huge ecosystem that has more solidarity than most people realize.  I believe that people realizing how much solidarity there is across the planet for this will help us collectively shift out of things like extreme inequality and ecosystem degradation. There are literally millions, if not billions of people worldwide working on these sorts of initiatives, and we're setting up Bloom Network to help them be more findable and well-resourced.

Bloom Network is a hybrid IRL and online social network that is designed to help people create decentralized, collaborative value chains and support each other in healing our relationships with each other and the natural world. I designed its business model and to some extent its technological backend. Bloom is an international network of creative professionals, activists, and healers working in service to civil society. We are producing a conference in San Francisco in November, please do come :). http://www.bloomnetwork.org/summit.html

While part of my role with Bloom is to fundraise for the organization, I realize I have a community of incredible people who follow my work and believe in me as a creative leader. I want to give folks an opportunity to contribute directly to my work here. If you would like to learn more about Bloom Network or contribute to the global collective there, visit our website at http://bloomnetwork.org.

Lastly, here are two other creative community leadership projects I host:
>> Lift Up, a capacity building program for community resilience network leaders. Recently I organized a workshop series on impact frameworks, to assist organizations in maximizing their impact and fundraising efforts.
>> Psychedelic Cultures Podcast - bringing together psychedelic explorers from different generations to share wisdom and experiences. Follow that link to get a sense of why I consider psychedelics part of <g>regenerative</g> culture.

Thank you for reading this, and I look forward to creating nourishing, inspiring events and media pieces to share with you.

Goals
$102 of $200 per month
I will record and edit one episode per month of a Bloom Network podcast featuring leaders in regenerative culture from around the world. You can listen here: http://www.bloomnetwork.org/bloompodcast and add the RSS feed to your podcast app: http://www.bloomnetwork.org/bloompodcast

Leaders I'd like to interview include Nancy Zamerowski of Yellow Seed, a platform cooperative for more equitable trade of crops; Maya Zuckerman, a transmedia futurist and brand strategist working across Hollywood and radical regenerative media projects; Sobey Wing, the cultural relations person for Bloom Network, from Vancouver British Columbia - he is a DJ who assists youth with rites of passage rituals, and leads Bloom's forum on indigenous solidarity; Alicia Boyd, a conference producer from Sydney Australia who is launching her own company to host international conferences on topics such as addiction and trauma healing, clean energy, food sovereignty and more; Rucha Chitnis, a photojournalist originally from Bombay, India who has a lucid perspective on how women lead regenerative solutions in communities all over the world.

You get the idea :)
