Many thought leaders in economic transformation find that money can have the effect of disrupting relationships between people. We pay money for something and like this want to be even. This can be very liberating, but it can also separate us. It makes it easy for us to withdraw from our interpersonal connectedness and shared responsibility. Many of us are conditioned to get away as cheap as possible.
Capitalist mentality suggests: “Pay attention to your own advantage!”
What changes when we give money with the intention to make something possible?
When we pay a price, we are consumers. When we contribute something, we take part and responsibility in its success.
For all of my work, I try to find pricing that is as inclusive as possible. For some of my offers, you find graduated price options. Please be honest when choosing your contribution, considering the reflections listed above. If you are able to pay the medium or highest price option, I cordially invite you to do so. Like this, you contribute to me being able to continue my independent work and on the other hand make it possible that people with less money have the chance to benefit, e.g. in form of work exchange.
Practical orientation guide:
< 500€ income = lowest price option
< 1200€ income = medium price option
> 1200€ income = highest price option
If you are not able to pay anything at all or only a lower rate than the advertised one, feel free to contact me for an alternative solution. Sometimes there is the possibility for a work/energy exchange.
Give what you can,
take what you need.
