We hear you. We see you. We feel you. 

You've 
heard about Mindfulness for the People and want to know more.
You've experienced a keynote, training, or consultation and want to do more. 
You're hungry and heartfelt and want a community of others like you who seek to be more. 

So here it is.

An opportunity to radically re-imagine the mindfulness movement with Mindfulness for the People in real time. Brand new. Together. Everyone.

We can't wait to get your feedback on our preliminary content and ideas for developing even more content. 

Welcome and thank you for joining us!

HOW THE PATREON PAGE FOR MINDFULNESS FOR THE PEOPLE WORKS
Patreon allows patrons, or supporters, to do just that: support what they love! By signing up, you are offering financial support for Mindfulness for the People-- a Black-owned social change agency-- to operate. For example, funds raised via Patreon go towards:
  • supporting monthly business expenses like internet, phone, bookkeeping, and liability insurance 
  • purchasing supplies like printer ink, books, notebooks, and printer paper
  • raising funds for business certifications (minority-owned business certification/$350-$1200; woman-owned business certification/$500+; B-corp status)

But more than that, by choosing to become a patron of Mindfulness for the People, you are investing in Black-led social change which helps to increase visibility around:  
  • the historic under-investment in Black-led social change organizations
  • the increased scrutiny faced by Black-led social change organizations
  • the invisible emotional labor of Black women facilitating/engaging in racial justice work

WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE

Each Patron will be charged upon registering to become a Patron-- and then on the 1st of every month following. More details on membership levels below: 

  • Just Because patrons will be charged $3/month just because they can, because we need it, and because the work is worth it! And, through the end of 2018, patrons of Just Because will also have the opportunity to contribute to the development of our podcast (including super early access to our demos!).

  • Liberation Bound patrons will be charged $10/month and will have access to our super fresh, super new (as of September 2018) members-only resource database on Trello (curated by Mindfulness for the People Founder, Angela Rose Black). The database is an ever-evolving living resource that centralizes the wisdom and insight of People of Color in mindfulness research, teaching, and practice! In other words, if you are wondering where to find mindfulness research studies that engage communities of color; mindfulness resources for youth of color; mindfulness organizations led by people of color--- from books to studies to podcasts and talks: this will become your go-to site! And, like our Just Because patrons, Liberation Bound patrons will also have the opportunity to contribute to the development of our podcast (including super early access to our demos!). Note: within 24-48hrs of becoming a Patron, you will receive the Trello database invite. Be sure to check your SPAM folders too!

  • Make the Covert Overt patrons (up to 10 total) will be charged $25/month and will receive access to the Just Because and Liberation Bound level PLUS monthly invitation to a live video chat with Founder Angela Rose Black! Each month, you will be invited to submit a few pressing questions in relation to mindfulness and racial justice. Then, once a month there will be a hosted video chat where answers will be provided to at least one of your questions. We are limiting the group to 10 members, so essentially you could get answers to multiple questions in one video chat--- how cool! The best part, beyond getting answers to your question, is that you can join Mindfulness for the People in supporting the end of "pick your brain" culture, replacing it instead with an ethical, transparent business transaction. You have questions (needs), we have answers (service), and we both win (ethical, transparent business transaction)!
