Memberance in our Community

As humans we need connection and belonging. If you are looking for like-minded folks
to connect with and/or want more support for your goals and needs then
you may benefit from giving this some of your time and attention:
In order to become a member-citizen and access our realm of supports we ask you to take some time
for self reflection to assess your strengths, interests, and most precious values--
in preparation
to share your interests with us so we may know your unique place in our community.
This is how it's all-ways been done; for all folks to feel valued with belonging.

Three paths lead to involvement in our society of communities,
one is to become a member, another is to join as part of the crew,
and the third is to become an external ally in our Projects and Campaigns.
Please, when you feel ready to start exploring an adventure in community,
we like to call it the Journey of ReMemberance, observe these few steps:


In the spirit of mutual benefit, show of support for our values opens the doors to support and opportunity...

  1. View and complete our online Application for Memberance. Please share enough information for a basic introduction so we can best be of service for your interests in life. 
  2. In the spirit of mutual benefit, we ask for your support in return to keep an ample and vibrant fuel supply for this grand adventure that fills our lives with fun and purpose
  3. View the Grace Accord if you wish to learn about our guiding virtues; it is the code of conduct that unites us in our values and culture.
    • Although demonstrating accordance with our culture of grace is not necessary for MemberShip, it is the first substantial step to realizing a station of influence in our society, in other words: "joining the crew."  Demonstration can be by online form or by printing and signing a copy of the signable version of the Grace Accord, then sending it to us when completed.  Adoption of the Grace Accord in your life defines and guides the way we relate with each other, in other words, your life expands in scope to become our life. 
We have a variety of standard benefit packages that provide you time and support value.
We also offer custom packages for a more organically grown support relationship.
Non-monetary contributions of value are considered on a case by case basis.
We also offer the option to become a member and contribute to our efforts
through the fundraising platform we feature at Patreon:
In addition to the member benefit service packages listed below,
organized by value-basis tiers, access to our society also allows
for the ability to share in mutual benefit with other members
who have similar needs and interests.  Time exchange, barter,
gifting economy, and collaborative consumption are some
of the familiar terms associated with these options.
Value is a flexible concept in our Mutual Benefit Society, everyone contributes value and receives an equal measure to maintain mutual benefit.  We also accept non-monetary contributions of value; however, because value is largely subjective, work trade, barter, etc. type offerings are approved on a case by case basis.
