Why we believe in pay what you feel:
- Knowledge, ideas and wisdom are public domain. It is our strong feeling that this knowledge is here to be shared. Having said that it is equally important that we value what we spend our money on. Instead of being a fixed price to sell as many courses as possible for the maximum value, we want to bring back the human touch! Like all human interactions money is a form of energy that can be used to either push us apart or bring us together.
- Reconnecting with the self in the exchange of money. Each individuals means, values & feelings are not the same. The system we currently live in has completely destroyed the human aspect within the exchange system. Products are not bought for their true value, we are not accountable for the impact of our purchases and we often have no clue as to the stories of the people, places or animals behind what we purchase. We are completely driven by money yet at the same time completely disconnected emotionally, mentally & physically from the repercussions of how we use it.
- Healing our relationship to money. The standard of living in first and second world countries is perhaps the highest it has ever been. We have technologies and luxuries that even 15 years ago would have seemed impossible. One could say we are living in the era of abundance. Yet despite this abundance the gap between rich and poor continues to grow, the planet is being destroyed at an alarming rate, wars are waged for money and political and egotistical games, our fellow Earthlings are being slaughtered in the millions every day, people are working longer hours than ever before and the amount of consumption and waste has become unfathomable. Our relationship with money has become one of stress, greed, desperation, discontent, jealousy and fear. It’s time to heal our relationship with money and start working towards an abundant global community that is working towards health and happiness for all.
- Abundance = Receiving + Giving, not one or the other. Another reason for this approach to payment is to increase our own capacity to give. By having the course as pay what you feel it becomes accessible to more people. Giving half the money to charity/non for profit organisations feels good for us and undoubtedly the purchaser too. Giving and receiving create a full healthy cycle, if one half of the cycle is stuck the whole system becomes dysfunctional.
