Immerse in Music and Photography... This ground-level tier is a way of plugging into a direct channel with me, getting upfront access to exclusive offerings and supporting my work as an artist.

  • Transmission: Becoming a patron gives you access to offline & next-day recordings + tracklistings of the livestream for my monthly DJ broadcast, a deep radio experience beaming out fusionary musical medicine for journeying. You can travel solo or synchronise with others tuning in from different lands.

  • The First Glimpse: You'll get first look at new photographic and moving image projects on glimpsesoflight.art, previews of other new work, private view invites for real-world events + invitations to input/feedback on projects as they develop. 

  • Tune of the Month: special selection to uplift your ears & spirit!

  • e-PfB Special Bonus: When you sign-up you'll get a download of the PDF version of my book, "Postcards from Babylon - a rough guide to liberation"

    .

Money is energy Your contribution goes direct towards buying music for the broadcasts, covering expenses for photographic work, and enabling me to take time to develop the show and other independent art & community projects.

.

Contribution Sliding Scale: £2-£10

Patreon is a bit like throwing a couple of quid in a busker's hat on the street (quid = slang for British Pounds - please translate to whatever currency you buy groceries with!) The system asks for a minimum contribution but allows you choose your amount - so feel free to pay what you can afford and what you think it's worth. Thanks!

DANCEFLOOR JEDI

reward item
reward item
$14.50
per month

Dive Deep into Dance... This offering is for conscious dancers and movement meditators who want to connect with me as a teacher-facilitator. You'll receive a monthly flow of specially-crafted resources for integrating a transformative movement practice into your life.

  • DJ mixes for Dancers: every month I make a dancing journey, using the maps of the 5Rhythms Wave and Movement Medicine. You have access to two versions of these journeys: a guided practice (music with my spoken facilitation over the music), and a music-only DJ version for more autonomous movement practice. The journeys vary in length from under 15mins to over an hour, so you get a mix of short practices that are easy to include in your routine, and opportunities for longer immersion.

  • Movement Meditations, Teachings & Rituals: you also receive other guided practices, for working without music, drawing on freeform movement technique, Taoism, Processwork or the shamanic / animist traditions I work with.

  • Transmission: Deep Radio Session: you have next-day, offline listen-back recordings and tracklistings for my monthly live Transmissions, an opportunity to use the maps to dance deep, immersing solo or syncing with others.

  • Livestreams from 'In The Room' Sessions: when possible I broadcast a live audio feed from the classes and spaces I hold in Devon (Deep Rhythm, Totnes Dance Collective+) and other places. You can tune in and join the dancefloor from wherever you are!

  • Dancer's Library & Guides: you get access to all the waves, mixes, meditations and teachings to use offline and at any time, using the Patreon app, web interface - or another podcast reader. You also get 'how-to' starter's intro and other teaching guides to using the dance as a meditation and tool for living.

  • Monthly Update: at the start of the month I send out an update, signposting what's coming, share some suggestions for practice and a tune of the month.

  • The First Word: you'll get an advance booking option for 'in-the-room' movement workshops & immersions I offer, likewise any online courses, ongoing groups or other dance-related offerings.

  • e-PfB Special Bonus: I'll also send you a PDF version of my book of photography and writing "Postcards from Babylon - a rough guide to liberation"

    .

Growing for All Your contribution goes towards me taking the creative & production time needed to develop and offer these resources. You're helping me make them available for you and for the wider community, including bursary access for practitioners & communities with reduced access to financial resources. If you're needing the latter, please get in touch.

.

Contribution Sliding Scale: £12-£21 I'm asking £12 as a minimum contribution for plugging into this resource. Patreon doesn't offer an explicit sliding scale system but you can 'name your amount'. Consider £12 a concession level contribution, with £15-£18-£21 as flexible options to pay what you can afford. Thanks! (Adjust accordingly for other currencies & please note VAT tax will be added in some countries, including UK)

.

Ready to get on the Dancefloor? When you sign-up you'll get immediate access to the most recent mixes, meditations & other posts, an 'intro to home dancing' guide - and the keys to the library archive.

Dancing... - it's fun, you'll enjoy it :-)

Do it often and you'll feel more alive.

Do it as a practice... - and I believe you can grow in all sorts of ways.

Thanks for considering it.... hope to connect with you through these movements.

ART & MEDICINE ACTIVATOR

reward item
reward item
$25
per month

Elevate the Vibe...  This is the full-spectrum option, giving you access to all the resources on the other tiers, plus taking us to the next level where I can share from my creative process across image, movement, sound and other channels.

  • The Full Spectrum: as a contributor on this tier, you'll have access to all the resources in 'Sound & Vision' + 'Dancefloor Jedi' (see below for full list) - along with some special exclusives direct from my creative space.

  • Glimpses from the Lightroom: As often as I can, I make an audio or video share for activators, updating on works-in-progress and reflecting on current themes in my practice and in the world field. That may include culture and medicine that is inspiring or guiding me - an intro to a seminal photobook, stories from a movement pioneer, a resumé of musical movements or links to art & articles to inform, educate & inspire.

More Liberation: When you sign-up as an activator, I'll send you a 2-part special bonus

  • a signed hard copy of my Book 'Postcards from Babylon - a rough guide to liberation', a 200-page monograph of photography and writing. [Remaining stocks are limited and the book is heavy, so this one is only available to early & UK-based subscribers!]

  • a download link for the PfB Album, my 55-minute immersive audio journey of spoken word and original music, made with Alex Forster.

    .

Interconnection Pledging this level of contribution is a big gift. Your money will contribute to sustaining all the different parts of what I do, activating resources for making art and holding spaces in service to people, communities and the world field. The extra support contributes particularly to me taking on projects that feel important to me but don't generate revenue, specifically: work centring ecological renewal, social justice and cultural healing.

.

Contribution Sliding Scale: £21-£42

As with the other tiers, Patreon doesn't offer an explicit sliding scale system but you can 'choose what you pay'. So the invitation here is something like £21 / £28 / £35 / £42 as a guide to contribute whatever you're able and willing to give. Thanks! (Adjust accordingly for other currencies & please note VAT tax will be added in some countries, including UK.) 

.

Thanks for considering it!

About Christian de Sousa

Hello!

I'm an artist and facilitator.
Using movement, DJing, photography, words and collective process, I invite immersive explorations of what it means to be alive in the twenty-first century. 

I believe art and creative process in all their forms are a part of the medicine we need in times of crisis and renewal. I share my work under the umbrella name Glimpses of Light.

I'm offering three tiers for connection and plug-in into creative inspiration:
  • Tier 1 plugs you into my deep radio livestreams & photography work. 
  • Tier 2 brings a monthly flow of guided practices & DJ mixes for dancers & conscious movement meditators
  • Tier 3 is an invitation to immerse in the full spectrum of my work and practice.
Big Thanks for your engagement at any / whatever level is resonant and viable for you.


"Art is like the rippling of sun on water. It takes us dancing between light and dark, between the surface and the depths – and offering us glimpses of the whole. Whether making photographs, DJing, teaching movement or holding participative spaces, my intention is to facilitate a remembering of this wholeness."
