Future Primitive is a podcast that has been presenting intimate conversations with authors, visionaries and innovators from around the world for the last decade. At this time, their core team and mission is evolving, and they need your help to initiate the next phase of our work. They wish to create an online community using a subscription model, and invite you to support them by joining now.
Dear friends of Future Primitive — it is with great joy that we share with you our plans for a new website and online community. As divisiveness engulfs many sectors of our interconnected lives, we yearn to deepen intimacy with each other. Over the last 10 years, this weekly podcast has been a treasure for hundreds of thousands of people, nourishing their souls with heartfelt exchanges between wisdom teachers, experienced elders, and pioneers of consciousness. It has also been extremely rewarding for myself, as I have shared countless tender moments with our guests.
It is in this spirit that we invite you to participate on a new level as a paying member, so that our exploration into the knowledge of our ancestors can continue to pour into our visions for a hope-filled future.

The Purpose of this Campaign
The funds raised during this campaign will be used to redesign our website (http://futureprimitive.org) and craft the community offerings that will be housed within the new website. Tasks include cataloging our archives and updating photo and bio content, new art and branding, server and hosting upgrades, community forum and services design, and last member integration and communications. The funds will also cover the costs incurred preparing this campaign.
- The purpose of the campaign is to jumpstart our paid subscription base and to create an exciting new community platform for us to broaden our listenership.
- We are committed to making this happen, so come join us!
Our New Website & Community Plans
We have envisioned a new website and a community subscription model that will both sustain Future Primitive and create a whole new way for our listeners and our guests to interact with each other. This will include a secure online forum and communications system, where our listeners, guests and hosts can share their thoughts and creativity with one another.
For the first five years of our podcast, we were financially sustained by the Marion Institute. After Marion shifted their assets to environmental and other educational initiatives, Future Primitive has continued through the generosity of our listeners and friends.
Golden Stupa Media (https://goldenstupa.media) will be overseeing branding and artistic upgrades, as well building the website and community forum.
