FAIR ENERGY EXCHANGE (F.E.E.)*
Instead of a sliding scale, I'm using a payment tier model borrowed from fellow radical healing artists. There is nothing you have to prove to me about your financial situation, I don't ask for your tax returns or pay stubs. I simply ask that you do some honest reflection about your current financial reality from a mindset of abundance rather than one of scarcity & then choose the tier meets that reality. The tiers are named as they are to reflect the amount of “green” you have access to. The Steady Stream Tier is my “market rate”; Creek Tier is for those for whom market rate would be a hardship; and Waterfall Tier is for those with wealth. As I my work deepens, it's possible that I may change my approach. I will be sure to reflect those changes here.
Waterfall- highest amount
You have inherited wealth or you have a large discretionary budget (disposable income).
Steady Stream- middle amount
You can comfortably invest in your own personal growth without financial repercussions.
Creek- lowest amount
You are on a limited or stretched budget
This can be used as an alternative to exchanging money or be used to do a mixed payment method. We could explore what is possible with bartering our gifts and resources, provided that the exchange feels equitable and is fulfilled in a timely manner. Barters that I am currently seeking include: tattoos; car repair; wooden furniture; instruments; Black hair care; bodywork; astrological guidance; construction support; meals; retreat space; fine textiles; international travel; digital media production. I am open to receiving other ideas too.
