Inner Alchemy Cards: Build A New World Deck


Our next make-your-own card adventure is finally here!

Inner Alchemy Collage: Build A New World Deck (online) is an artful exploration of language, learning, inspiration, and collaboration, that delves into important ideas around activism and systems of oppression. This is a way for us to examine and disrupt harmful dominant narratives, tell new stories, and inspire one another to use our creativity and personal power to help build the collective world we all want to live in!


In the end you will have a beautiful and meaningful handmade deck of 35 oracle cards to use as unique a tool for guidance and reflection whenever you need it. 


I'm your host, Mindy Tsonas Choi, an artist, organizer, radical belonging activist, and the founder of the Be Seen Project - a grassroots initiative resourcing BIPOC artist and makers working in activism. Join me along with other stellar artists, makers and co-creators who have also been exploring social justice and activism as part of their creative work. 


Meet the Co-Creators:


Since 2014, my Inner Alchemy Cards have been a vehicle to explore many aspects of creative life and work, including... identity, creative process, truth, intimacy, self-expression, transformation, community, personal healing... all to gain better clarity about who we are and how we show up in the world. So much is always revealed in the making of these cards.

After everything we have been through together as a global community this past year, I knew it was time to use this card-making circle as a vehicle to help build something new... greater understanding, accountability to one another, inter-connectedness, brave learning, radical empathy, universal healing, liberation, and new ways forward we have not yet imagined! 


As artists, making things together is always our way in.

How the workshop will work:

  • You will receive 35 Inner Alchemy Card prompts via email to use as self-guided inspiration to create your unique deck and explore our Build A New World lexicon. Emails will be sent weekly on Sundays, 5 new cards per week, beginning June 20th and ending on Aug. 1st.

  • With each card prompt there will also be a resource and action step shared to support you in taking your learning further and your activism off the screen and into the world! 

  • The workshop also will include easy card-making inspiration and how-to tutorials on creating your cards, finishing your cards, and using your Build A New World Deck in inspiring and impactful ways. 

  • Create your cards any way you wish! While you certainly can practice the Inner Alchemy Collage process - which I will share in class - you can also draw, illustrate, paint, stitch, photograph, and make your cards in your own unique way.

  • You do not need to be an artist or activist to participate! Just have a desire to get messy, create in rad community, learn and grow, and take small actions towards positive change! 

Access and Payment:

As a way to prioritize community and create economic equity for everyone who wishes to join, you can pay in the way that is most in alignment to your means and resources. Thank you for valuing our co-creators time, effort and work, as well as our overall collective care by mindfully choosing the option that is truly best for you. <3


Here's to the world we are visioning and creating, together!

I am so grateful to have YOU along for this journey.


This class is now closed. Thank you to all who joined us!

The Cost of Selling Belonging

As someone who use to sell belonging and believed I was creating something universally magical , I now have fresh eyes on the harm that I once caused. I understand what can (and was) incredibly healing and impactful for some, was at the same time excluding, marginalizing and undervaluing others. First, to anyone who ever felt like they did not belong to anything I created because they were unable to afford it or felt like they did not have the social capitol to join -  I am sincerely sorry for not seeing you sooner .   To our entire creative community as a whole, I urge us all to think about belonging in new and equitable ways, and to do the work of dismantling these hierarchical structures that leave so many people out of the circle. We all deserve to have access to creativity and belonging, and I'd go so far as to say both are fundamental basic human needs and rights. Selling belonging can look like... Creating spaces and experiences that can only be accessed by buying in at one,

Welcome to Rebel House

REBEL House is a place for radical art and co-creation where we practice Radicle Belonging as activism. This is the next iteration of my public (free) Patreon , and how I am building, connecting, igniting and activating. Welcome and deep gratitude for being a part of this communal living, dreaming, doing space and helping to create it! This is a collective belonging space, an initiative, and a movement house. It's where Radicle Belonging is praxis work for generative practices and disruption through connection - intentional and actionable. We are people coming together with a common goal: to use our creative visionary force to more impactfully belong to ourselves and one another. Your presence is always what is most valued.  We are doing togetherness differently here. What REBEL House is NOT: A space that values like-mindedness over active inclusivity. Sameness in belonging is only dividing us further. Pay to play. Anyone can be a part of this movement house by simply showing up
