Gift economics is a different way of interacting with money and understanding what something is “worth.”  In a Gift model, goods and services are not sold as they are in a market model of economics.  Rather, they are given freely with no requirement of an exchange.  We believe that the lessons and teachings we give and receive in our workshops are priceless.

At the same time, we do have needs as an organization operating within the current economic and social structures.  Therefore, all participants in our community workshops are offered an opportunity to support our work.  No one is required to give, and no amount is considered too small or too large.
