New Tiers, New Benefits, at Patreon

Last night I updated sponsorship tiers Stalwart and above over on Patreon.

I added two new benefits  — discounts on products at Mitch’s General Store and access to the new SHIFT self-improvement program.   This is exciting stuff.  Go getcha some!


Heartfelt Thanks

Santa gave me my wish yesterday — a new Patreon supporter!  And he gave it to me early!

Joking aside, thanks Leo — you are a true friend.

Whenever someone supports me at the $10/month level or higher I burn a candle for him or her in the Archangel Barachiel shrine in the Cabal Fang Temple.

Interested in what a candle burning entails?  Read more here.

I’m Asking Santa for Your Support

What am I hoping to find under my Christmas tree this year?  Your patronage!  Support my mission via Patreon for as little as $1/ month and you’ll get a ton of patron-only videos and articles, as well as early access to even more.  So a gift to me is also a gift to yourself (but that can be just between you, me and the elves).

Now, if $1/month is too rich for you, here’s another way you can support my mission: buy your books from Alibris!  Alibris has a ton of great features and if you buy used like I do, you can often beat Amazon’s prices.  Shop any Alibris link on my site, buy from them, and I’ll get 5% of the total sale.

Thanks for your support!

Revisioning, Remodeling, Reinvigorating

This year I’ve been directing my focus toward responsibility and hard work.  When things aren’t the way I want them to be, I’m starting with the premise that it’s probably my fault and I’m probably not working hard enough.

So I recently asked myself if I’ve done everything humanly possible to show — not so say, or claim, but to really demonstrate — that Cabal Fang is a powerfully transformative and beautiful martial art capable of doing great things.  The answer was “no.” 

It struck me that the best way to convince people that Cabal Fang is beautiful on the inside is make everything about it beautiful on the outside. Beauty is an amazing saleswoman.

So I decided that I was going to make better, more interesting and more visually beautiful videos.  And the existing Cabal Fang Temple, which is need of some tender loving care inside and out, is getting a major face lift — before and after pictures below.

I asked myself if I’ve been doing everything humanly possible to raise money to for a new and expanded Cabal Fang Temple, one with space for classes, community events, and interfaith services.  The answer was “no.” 

So I launched an account at Patreon.  If you want to get exclusive patron-only content, get early access to videos and articles and generally support my mission, become a patron today.
