To Donate or Not to Donate? Our Culture of Fair Exchange Regarding Our Courses, Services and Events
The general rule in spiritual exploration is that somewhere within the first one or two courses, services or events in which you participate you should experience some tangible and meaningful benefit. To produce a personally important and major change in one's life takes about 6 months of both learning and practicing the new spiritual discipline.
Participating in any of our courses, services or events should provide you with some real value and tangible benefits. These benefits and values can be in the form of a changed or improved perspective or attitude, a new commitment or even a new behavior. They also can be in the form of educational or personal support that helps you heal or maintain some new habit to live better. There are many faces to small and large benefits that we believe our courses, services and events can provide to you and best of all --- you are always the final authority who gets to be the judge what that value is! Thank you for considering donating to our non-profit organization. If you want to see our current goals for these donations, click here.
Suggested Donation Amounts for Our Courses, Services and Events --- What it means!
For most of our courses, services and events, you do not have to pay something to start or attend, but that does not mean that they are free from some form of fair exchange if you are benefiting from them. Most courses, services or events that we provide are presented on a donate-what-you-think-is-appropriate or exchange-something-of-value-with-us basis. (We have only a few courses, services and events for which we must charge a fixed fee, but even those can be negotiated, as described below.)
This voluntary donation or exchange system is based completely upon what you feel is the value of what our services and materials have brought to your life as well as what is realistic with your current financial situation.
We often have a suggested donation for our courses, services and events. This is only a suggested donation level and is subject to the principles in this summary regarding the importance of fair "energy" exchange within our community. Any suggested donation amount that we might list for a course, service or event is determined by several factors:
1.) The costs required to create and administer the course, service or event.
2.) Our best estimate of what a person at the average income median can reasonably afford in our area (the San Francisco Bay area of the United States).
3.) The value that we believe the course, service or event can reasonably deliver.
If you are located in a different country or in a different area of the U.S., this suggested donation amount that uses the average income median of your area would therefore change to be more or less expensive than the San Francisco area. Our suggested donation amount also allows you to increase that amount or decrease it if you have a greater or lesser income than the median income that we use to set the suggested donation amount in our area. This whole voluntary donation or exchange system is based upon your honor and a trust in your fairness of judgment.
For each course, service or event, you will be given a suggested donation amount. To make a donation for this amount, click on the donation link which will take you to PayPal or some other donation payment method. Be sure to type in the name of the course, service or event in the Pay Pal Description box so that we know what you are paying for. Click here to pay the amount of your choice through our PayPal. If you want to make a donation greater than or less than the suggested donation amount you can, using the guidelines given above.
Non-Monetary Exchanges For Courses, Services and Events Gladly Accepted
Some individuals cannot afford any monetary donation, but they always can exchange their labor or other services with us to maintain the healthy practice of fairly exchanging something of value for something of value. Therefore, we are flexible and always also open to hearing about special authentic need situations where no exchange is possible at all and, where our organization can help with a full or partial scholarship. If you need to negotiate with us, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us your situation and what you propose. If you have specific skills, let us know that as well. We almost always need help in many areas.

Often we have a suggested donation listed for our courses, services and events. This is only a suggested donation level and is subject to the principles in this summary regarding the importance of fair "energy" exchange within our community.
If you DO receive a real value or benefit from any of our courses, services or events and you feel that they have improved your life in some tangible way, please do support us by exchanging "energy" with us in some way so that we too may continue to exist and grow! Individuals who take our on and offline courses or services or attend our events do provide an important portion of our total mission financial support. And, your fair exchange for them helps support the vital right livelihood for all of those individuals who create, administrate and delivers our courses, services and events!
As a mini-culture, living community system and a reflection of the deepest natural patterns and laws of the universe, our organization holds that maintaining fair and appropriate "energy" exchanges in life with all the sources that support one’s life is not just vital to our personal well being. It is also vital to the planet on all levels! We realize that our members and visitors come from many different economic levels and completely trust that they will joyously donate to us according to both their means and the value that they have received in exchange from us. And, we will receive those generous and kind donations with equal joy!
