trust and equity-based sliding scale

Practice is for everyone.

Holistic health is for everyone.

Creativity is for everyone.

We live in a capitalist system that prides itself on a “no pain, no gain” mentality around financial success and health, yet fails to take accountability for the socio-economic, racial, gender-based inequities faced by many folks, especially Black, Indigenous, and People of Color from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds, as well as folks within the Queer community.

A trust and equity-based sliding scale  aims to eliminate barriers of privilege and provide access to services based on each individual’s financial reality and earning power. Offering services at multiple price-points, provides access within various levels of income.

If you are experiencing financial hardship and paying full price impedes you from meeting your basic needs of food, shelter, and clothing, consider our trust and equity-based sliding scale options on workshops, programs, and holistic services.

Do not defer your rest, healing, and well-being because of finances. When the opportunity arises in your life, pay it forward.

Some questions to ask yourself when choosing your tier are:

-Are my basic bills covered? (shelter, electricity, water, food, general clothing)

-Is the country where I live a world super-power? In which city do I live? In which neighborhood within my city do I live?

-Do I own my home or car? Do I rent in a mid to high end location, participate in gentrification, or lease a mid to high end car?

-Do I have access to family support, inheritance, or inter-generational wealth?

-Do I have expendable income for things such as going to a cafe, bar, restaurant, a movie, shopping for “want” instead of “need” items, going on vacation?

-Is my way of being and lifestyle accepted by my family and/or community?

-Is paying full price accessible in my country’s currency, or is the earning power in my country vastly different to that of a world super power?

-Do I earn in the currency of a world super power, regardless of where I choose to live?

-Do I have a choice not to work?

Commiting to your health comes with a dose of sacrifice as your healing and well being become a priority.

With this trust and equity-based sliding scale please use your own discrenment as to where you fall on the scale. And pay it forward when you are able.

Practice is for everyone. Holistic health is for everyone. Creativity is for everyone.

Looking forward to seeing you.
