About the Planner:

Last year I learned as part of Winter Solstice celebrations in Korea, or Little New Year (Dongji), one of our longstanding ancestral traditions is to give calendars. Last year I made a revolutionary Art + Activism Calendar. This year I made you an entire full-size planner, my gift of love and care to you!

The Radicle Ritual Planner is truly unique and one-of-a-kind. It is not about centering goals, productivity, success, or even *you* as a lone individual. It was envisioned to meet this new moment (and the next!), founded in interconnection so that each of us can find our constellation of care to better organize and support everything in our lives! Because we were not meant to Be and Do it all alone. The Self Care Industrial Complex has sold us this belief, and it has caused an epidemic of isolation, stress and loneliness. This is my antidote.

Radicle Ritual is about rooting in practices, medicine and creativity that supports our Collective Belonging! You get to call in what’s most meaningful to you.

In its pages you will find:

✨ Space for yearly, monthly, daily ritual
✨ A Spell for Radicle Belonging
✨ New Moon/Full Moon dates + spreads
✨ Exploring Inner Alchemy Collage through story, symbols, archetypes etc.
✨ Awareness + Activism dates (20+ new ones!)
✨ Monthly calendars + Weekly dated pages
✨ Lists for your multifaceted roles + projects
✨ Layouts to encourage Self Care AS Community Care (they’re connected!)
✨ Pages to build collaborations
✨ Word of the Year + Work of the Year musings
✨ Blanks for card pulls, daily gratitude, collages, tiny art, whatever nurtures YOU
✨ Year end reflections centering ME and WE

I hope this tool can help us begin to hold more complexity around diversity in collective belonging spaces, and community as an essential part of self love and self care.

I believe in YOU. I believe in US.


Printing Specs and Tips:
  • standard 8.5x11 page size
  • 172 pages/86 double sided - not including front and back cover of your choice
  • Black and white
  • 28lb bond/70lb text paper or heavier highly recommended
    (these are equivalent with different names)
I printed my initial draft in-person at Staples on their self serve copier. It took about 5 minutes and cost $33 (about .19 a page). Easy! Many office supply stores and local print shops have an online option to print and bind (in several ways), with contactless shipping as well. Be sure to opt for double sided.

I had my draft spiral bound on the spot for an additional $5 and chose coated black card stock, front and back covers, which was included in the binding. There were vinyl options as well. I'm going to try a local print shop for my final print copy to compare, but as a test run I was pretty happy with these easy results.


Other Binding Options:

The fun thing about a self-printed planner is that you can use any binding technique that feels like the right practical choice and creative adventure for you! For ready made there are crafty disc binder systems, and your classic ring binders in zillions of prints, style options and even # of rings, especially if you like being able to pull out pages and work on them, or even add pages, dividers etc.

If you're into book making, there are many techniques for crafting something beautifully personal and handmade for loose leaf pages (not folded signatures, as the PDF is not formatted for this!). For mine, I wanted ease and something not too bulky, and I always need a spiral binding so I can either fold over or lay flat, depending what I'm working on. For yours, make it what you love!

For Your Covers:

Since I always personalize my cover with Inner Alchemy Collage - which I will share all about in our New Year's Revolution Planner Party! - a simple, sturdy, blank front and back is all I really need. If you wanted to get fancy, you certainly could design your own cover, or use pretty printed card stock. Just be sure whoever is binding your planner (if it's not you), can accommodate whatever option you choose. Your covers will get a bit of wear and tear, so keep this in mind as well.

If a simple, no fuss no muss cover is more your jam, you could also simply add clear covers to the front and back or ask your printer to print the front and back page of the PDF on card stock as the covers.

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!

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,
