Return to the People
When I have a project in my head and in my heart, I have to get it out. Those of you that have been following my business for the past few years, know that I sometimes change directions in my goals for what I am wanting to do. Some may see it as flighty, but I think that as we grow and change, our focus changes and we adapt.
I’ve been working hard to build these underlying foundational changes for my business (Wild Earth Herbals) so that as I implement the overarching ones, there isn’t going to be a lot of adjustment.
My thoughts~ plant medicine (herbalism) is People’s medicine (this is not an original idea, for sure! Many people follow this philosophy). Everyone and their mama should be able to craft their own medicines to take care of their families. We are, after all, responsible for our own health. When we take that back, it is a great feeling. Everyone should have the tools to be able to prevent illness and to live with vitality. BUT. Not everyone has the resources. Yes, you can look up things on the internet and at the library for free. But. You have to have the time to sort through what is real and what is garbage.
Workshops, classes, retreats, apprenticeships, etc on herbal medicine can range from lower cost ($20-50) to the thousands. And even if someone could afford to do that, if you are a mother or caretaker or have other obligations, you just can’t do it, usually.
I want to create a system that allows me to give my medicine freely to those who need and want it. All of it. Free workshops, free classes, free retreats, and free herbal medicines.
But, to do that I still have to have an income because I too have financial obligations. This is where Patreon comes in.
With Patreon, wonderful folks called Patrons can support my vision for various personal reasons: they love my mission and goals and want to help, they see they can get awesome free stuff, or whatever other reason they have to be all around amazing people.
There are different support levels ranging from $1-$50 per month. Each level provides various bonuses: discount codes, free classes, free downloadable, free monthly consultations, and more as I add more content. And these will change as my goals are reached. Once I’m able to give free classes, I’ll adapt my tiers of support.
You can check out my Patreon page to see what the exact goals and support benefits are. Or ask any questions you have below! I’m super excited about this direction and hope that I’m able to reach my goals with your help.
