Come and experience a deeper dive into the principles of #Heartivism.  We’ll explore the power of inner transformation, small acts of kindness, skillful non-attachment, all while we cultivate deep ties and a sense of joyful urgency to “gently shake the world.”  The emergent curriculum for this course is based on teachings from, selected readings, and sharing of personal insights.  You don’t need #Heartivism Part One to participate.  The only requirement is a strong desire to bless self and others through a deep commitment to unlimited, radical kindness.

About Priceless Pricing

Priceless Pricing is a VCSL process designed to grow consciousness.  The things we value most in life– virtues such as love, abundance, respect and more–all come without a price tag.  The growth we experience via spiritual learning in community is also priceless.

Priceless Pricing starts when we ask class participants to commit to their spiritual growth, as well as the growth of the class’s consciousness.  This establishes a vibration of mutual support.  In the final class of any series, we ask people to turn within, ask Spirit to guide them regarding an amount to donate, then offer this donation in the spirit of shameless generosity.

Priceless Pricing helps us make classes accessible for everyone while we maintain the fiscal integrity of our Center.  It helps us understand we are all on this spiritual journey together. We create a microcosm of the world, where people work together in love and support. May our shared practice bless all beings.
