See How it Happens
Would you like to see one of my favorite, lesser-known parts of the Brave Joy Collective adventure? Every month members receive a 5x7" art print and a set of spiritual practices on an empowering theme. It's so amazing for me to mail out so many pieces of art, and know we're focusing our spirits together in a unified way. But here's another, less famous part of the Patreon subscription that I also really love: I share photos of the creative process and I write geeky captions. Yep, it's super fun! Some members find it inspiring for their own creativity too.
Don't worry, I don't spoil the monthly surprise when I post the process photos! I wait until everyone has received their Brave Joy mail, then I put up the pictures I took along the journey of making that art.
I unlocked one of my posts for you all to enjoy, to give you a taste of the subscription and because it makes me so happy to show how the art comes together. Check out the Remember theme and art on Patreon, here:
I'd love to send you the next Brave Joy Collective mailing, if you'd like to join us. Become a monthly subscriber through Patreon, and get access to these behind-the-scenes posts and zoom gatherings. Or skip the extras and purchase a Gift Subscription for yourself or a loved one to receive just the paper mailings each month.
Kind words from current Brave Joy Collective members:
"The art always seems to be just what I need. It evokes and connects and sustains me." -Sue
"The images and your writing bringing me joy and deep reflection." -Sadie
"I love the images you create, and I love having them in a form I can handle and use in my daily life. ...It gives me a way to connect spiritually that goes beyond white supremacist patriarchal religion..." -Jody
"I have been and continue to be blessed by the art and contemplative time it offers in my spiritual life." -Julie
I'm amazed and thankful to be doing what I love, knowing others are enjoying the process and the mailings. Now it's your turn to enjoy the process photos!
Thanks for reading, and be well. --Melanie

Thanks once more to the Brave Joy Collective members who supported the creation of this art! I'm so grateful we're on this journey together.
