  MoonTracker is a  5 1/2 x 5 1/2, real life hold in your hands,  2015 calendar birthed to uncover the rhythms of your life.  I use the moon simply as a quiet, inspiring symbol in the calendar to encourage you to discover and connect to the main character in your story - you. This is a hands on product for those of us that still appreciate the old fashioned beauty of paper & art.

Here is HOW TO USE. xox

HOW TO USE & The Magic is in the Details

WHY THIS CALENDAR and ...FOR WHO?

    For women who are hands on, to start a relaxing ritual just for you, women who want a beautiful base for tracking their natural birth control methods, for teenage girls to develop healthy relationships with their AMAZING growing bodies, women who want to know their bodies and mind better, for those dealing with infertility, to become pregnant, increase self-esteem, elevate self-confidence, to feel normal about bleeding and being that tad different at different seasons in your cycle, woman who never thought of tracking their cycle before and don't realize how much information it can give them about their health, their state of mind, their moods, PMS etc, to feel like you are never alone and to feel like you are always, always loved.

WHY PAPER instead of an app?

    Oh the choices we have to make!  I am a hypnotist, and I'm very strategic with the "art" that is my life.  The benefit of having a tangible paper product is that you can touch and feel it.  It's grounding and reliable feeling in the ways an app is not (nope, nothing against apps).  It's a good visual reminder to relax and trust.  You can pick it up and colour on it (MoonTracker comes with a legend for you to personalize to track your focus, flow or feelings etc. by colouring in the moons each month). Colouring in the moons and reflecting on your legend reminds you to ground, to connect to yourself, and to pause.  You can be intelligent with it by planning what and why to track something, which helps you remember to make good decisions for yourself.  Your life is your canvas, and you really are the artist in charge.

SUMMARY 

    Reveal the mystery and master your cycle.  

    This calendar is a simple and effective tool to ground you in awareness about how you are as a whole. 

    It's a simple way to track your personal cycle, discovering patterns and connections in your mood and emotions, your ups and downs, your fertility and flow - all with the aim of gently finding and mastering the rhythms of your life.

    I've (Jamie) designed this calendar to be of special value for young women learning the ebb and flow of their maturing bodies,  us ladies discovering that with age comes new wisdom, and women who's bodies are crowning (perimenopause) into their next era (called ...menopause).  This beauty belongs with anyone who benefits from a simple "check-in" and the restful clarity that follows. 

*Whether you're 13, 35 or 65, MoonTracker is a wonder filled and wise confidant.

The inspiration for this project sprang from three areas of my life: Part of my personal process of fine-tuning my definition of a woman, parts from all the women I’ve gotten to work with in my Clinical Hypnosis practice through the years, and part difficulty (I have “reproductive challenges” and lost our babe due to an ectopic pregnancy after years of patiently waiting for our “turn”). Turning my attention to this project helped my spirit to feel calm and connected to something meaningful. Every time I even saw my first MoonTracker, standing quietly on my bathroom vanity, let alone coloured it red for blood, or green for fertility, I... was... happy.  This ...is ... about ...SELF-LOVE.

    The money we're raising for this project is going to design and printing cost. The quoted cost for 500 calendars printed is $2,722 plus tax.  Design costs are an addition (Graphic designer's need shelter & food too).  Check out Megan Miss Wonderful at Cedar+Gray!

The plan to pull this off is:

    Prototype is printed, design complete, shipping costs clarified, KickStarter launched, organized our next two months, any and all friends and family harassed to help us spread the Red Revolution word.  

SPECS - 15 double sided loose leaf %100 nice looking, delicious feeling recycled paper, locally made, up-cycled wood, and Biomass ink.

    On the surface, this beautiful calendar is simple and practical - but simple and practical, from the right imagination, can be astoundingly effective at creating gentle, lasting change.  

I chose the moon for us to use to follow our cycles because the moon, for many a person, reminds us of quiet stillness, beauty and possibility.  May the moon reflect back at you these things as you journey through your days.

Risks and challenges

Three risks involved in this project: printing time, Canada Post and being new to selling and marketing a physical product.

Success plan:

Prototype is printed, and all the details for printing ironed out and ready to go. This means I took the risk and fronted the cost of printing in order to be ready to mail December first (in perfect time for Christmas – what better magical time to introduce MoonTracker?).

Canada Post, quite frankly, is not encouragingly reliably. However, it’s what we have to work with at this time in Canada.
Our solution?
*To ensure those that order understand that delivery may take up to two weeks in Canada, and three internationally on average.
*Add basic postage into the cost, and will clearly communicate shipping costs for international orders before check out.

Product sales and marketing – we’re learning as we go. Your help along the way is much appreciated. Imagine how magical life could feel filled with oodles of confident, loving woman, and merry laughing girls!

The cost and risk of funding this project is on us and will greatly be helped by your support. We believe in the simplicity of support, education, and beauty. We’ve seen how an increased sense of peace, self-awareness and confidence can increase life quality in our clients, and we know how often small-understated moments have helped us.
