The Paradigm Project

The Paradigm Project is a patron-funded, creative collection of songs, art, and writing inspired by the Major Arcana of the Tarot. 22 archetype cards will be explored over the span of 3 years, and the fruits of these explorations are released monthly on Patreon. Join the magic anytime and get access to each submission when you sign up.

These songs, art & writings will not be released to the public until 2025, but you can be part of the journey as they're created. Plus, you're invited to make your own works of creativity alongside Leslie's each month. Patrons can access a secret part of the website to listen, read, learn and participate in the project as it unfolds.

Support Leslie at $5 (Fungi Folk), $10 (Crow Kin) or $20/month (Wolf Pack) or annually for as low as $60/year.

One Step at a Time
