Paul is offering the Bone Yoga Retreat Day as part of a Reciprocity based Gift Economy as a conscious act towards creating an economy based on relationships. Each student decides for themselves the amount that feels right, clear and reflects their financial situation, as well as a feeling of value and gratitude.
Applying the fundamental principle of a gift, the giver does not specify what the return, if any, shall be.
You may choose to pay the standard amount for work of this caliber, you may choose to pay more, less or gift back something in return.
We trust in the generosity of participants to support us in developing a mutually beneficial reciprocating gift economy.
Before you decide to book a place and make your payment here’s a few things to take into consideration:
Your financial situation
Your anticipated value
Similar caliber offerings on the market
Something that for you represents a clear gesture of commitment
Your desire to support our work and the exploration of Bone Yoga
Something else that you’d like to offer based on reciprocity
We trust you to be fair with your judgment as to what represents a commitment on your part and respects your financial situation.
If you discover that you didn’t pay enough or that you paid too much, you can adjust it at any time, to an amount that reflects your feelings of gratitude (or disappointment), and the desire to support us in the future.
Pauls vision is to work and share his knowledge and information with like-minded people. Embodying the principles of working together, with no limiting hierarchical, patriarchal, matriarchal or oligarchic positions.
Costs of similar classes of this caliber are estimated to be £80 -150.
Maybe first you may want to consider an initial investment of £35 to secure your place and represent a financial commitment on your part. This suggestion, as well as any payments/offering, is 100% totally your choice. This is only an idea to help support your choice.
