In a world where so much is out of our control, it’s time to reclaim your independence.

What the past few years have taught us…

It’s no exaggeration to say that the past few years have tested us like never before.

Unprecedented political divisions, a global pandemic,  skyrocketing inflation, ongoing supply chain issues, more frequent natural disasters and worsening effects from climate change, increased government control over just about every aspect of our lives and now a new war on European soil have all converged to make the times we’re living in some of the most uncertain in recent history.

One of the best ways to empower ourselves is to work toward greater independence and self-sufficiency in every aspect of our lives so that we’re less dependent on the systems and circumstances that are beyond our control. But it’s tough to know where to start or what to focus our attention on, and it’s even more difficult to go it alone. We could all use a little more direction and community support on our self-sufficiency journeys as we do our best to navigate these trying times and prepare for whatever the future holds.

The Society of Self-Reliance was born out of this idea, and aims to connect people with the resources, support and community we all need to survive and thrive in this “new normal.”

The waitlist is now open!


The Society of Self-Reliance is a monthly membership that will focus on different themes and aspects of self-sufficiency as we move through each month and season together. From growing and preserving food to crafting your own herbal medicine to learning basic construction and survival skills to creating greater financial independence, the plan is to cover any and all aspects of self-sufficiency over time and create a library of resources that members can access any time.

The membership site will include pre-recorded video lessons and downloads that will be uploaded on an ongoing basis, as well as a private community member area where members can connect with each other, discuss various topics related to self-reliance and exchange knowledge and ideas with each other, away from the algorithms, censorship and prying eyes of social media. Since this is a brand new membership that will be built from the ground up with the input of everyone in the membership community, the goal right now is to gauge interest in this program to get an idea of how many people are interested in joining before we officially launch later this month. Founding members will have the opportunity to join for a very special low monthly rate of just $20/month.

If you’re interested in becoming a member, add your name to the waitlist now and then keep an eye on your inbox for more details coming soon!

I hope to see you on the inside;)
