Thanks gifting is an ancient concept in my lineage traditions. It is where offerings are made in wholehearted gratitude, not in supplication or enticement.
My work is a thanks gift. I am lucky to have survived and I offer in gratitude for this miraculous life.
Patron contributions are a thanks gift, enabling me to continue offering. In this cycle of reciprocity I am able to give full scholarships for all of my classes to anyone who asks, keep prices low and provide access to many experiences and resources for free.

Patreon is the support community for my work of education, writing, sacred art and community creation. Patrons at every level make it possible for me to live and work in alignment with the myth cycles of illness and wellness.
On Patreon I share things unavailable elsewhere, including storytelling, seasonal lore, sacred art, creative process tutorials, behind the scenes work on my book and writing projects, along with downloads and resources that have been helpful to me in my ancestral/spiritual journey. I also offer patron-only events and gatherings several times a year, opportunities to engage and ask questions. Patron sponsorship of this work is a tremendous gift, allowing me to work in the old, ancestral way of community support.
What Patrons Support

Unlearn Online is a community endeavor for reclaiming our ancestral lifeways of community care and real life lived. We are researching, sharing and supporting each other in re-membering our connection to the living world. Unlearn meets once monthly and is developing a toolkit to share with others as we travel.
