I don’t receive any payments or royalties for the work I do (and neither does my husband), but am supported entirely by voluntary donations.
My videos are available completely free of charge. The cost of our books is set only to cover costs. The money received from their sale pays distributors, like Amazon, and the rest goes to our non-profit publisher who uses it to pay for their printing, and any other miscellaneous expenses involved in producing them.
If you think this information is important, and would like to donate towards supporting us directly so that we can continue our work, you can do so here.
Donations are processed by Selz. USD $2 is the minimum amount that can be donated. Once you click on the donate button you can enter an amount of your choosing in US dollars.
Note: The Donate button does not work in older browsers like Internet Explorer. If you don’t see a purple donate button, try viewing this page in a different browser.
Please note: Donations are not tax deductible.
Why we give freely
We work in the time-honored way that teachers and monks have always done, by receiving voluntary donations only.
Charging for spiritual knowledge means that only those who can afford to pay money can gain access to it, but that has never been a requirement for receiving it. Instead it comes to those who earn and make themselves worthy to receive it.
Yet as we live in a material world, even giving freely costs money, along with day-to-day living. That’s why we have a facility for donations here – they go directly to support us so that we can devote ourselves to this full-time. Our only income comes from donations, and from no other source. They pay for the equipment I use to produce videos, support me to research and write books, and be online. They also pay for our living expenses, such as our food, accommodation, up-keeping our car, paying our phone bill etc. (Everything we get we use to look after the basics of living and to enable us to continue our work; we only buy what we need and don’t take holiday trips.) Our printed books are set at a price that only covers their cost (i.e. the administrative costs of submitting them to the printers, the cuts that Amazon and other distributors take). Any money made from their sale goes to our non-profit publisher to cover the cost of their production, and no money from them reaches us.
