Self and Spirit in Service
A Year-Long “Lab for Life”
Growing Contribution is an individually rooted, community supported exploration. It provides an intensive focus for partnering with the spirit and mystery of life (however you identify it) and aligning with the light and wisdom of the seasonal turns of nature.
This “lab for life” provides a space to dig into and reach beyond stories of personal success or failure, beliefs about healing or harm, and prized dreams or expectations set for yourself or adopted from others.
It provides passage to a co-creative ground where uncertainty is the passport and the spirit of the unimaginable is your partner. Through this fundamental connection a fuller presence grows, enhancing the contributions that extend from you to serve the unfolding future–in small and large ways and in ordinary and extraordinary moments.

What does suggested donation mean?
It’s a relative guide based on my past fee structure and number of hours of service anticipated. It’s suggested as a donation because Growing Contribution will echo back to me in ways I can’t see or predict. If I set a straight fee for this offering I worry that it may be inaccessible for you. It’s my job, my dharma and privilege to offer this work. I’ve decided with this offering to let go and let mystery do my bookkeeping!
Your work is to determine what works for you. Be guided by an honest self-evaluation of your means and a conversation with mystery as you relate to it.
If you’ve got nothing to donate other than a big heart and a readiness to get to work on behalf of yourself and the planet AND are willing to give evidence of the ripple from your efforts, well then (gulp, as I’m still learning let too), it’s free.
