Recently I have been exposed to the writings of Charles Eisenstein. Here is one example
2013: The Space Between Stories
I have been exposed to the idea of the gift economy in the past but somehow, this has been very inspiring lately. You can read about it here, again from Mr Eisenstein.
In fact, I have been so inspired that I am moved to shift my entire way of doing business. Really, though I do need to pay rent and buy food (!) my main motivation for doing what I do is to share what I have learned over the years. To that end I wish to make myself available to anyone at all who has the desire to benefit from that hard earned knowledge, regardless of their financial situation or ability to pay. I put out a flyer locally where I live and post it here (with slight modification for wider distribution). Pass it on!
KNOWLEGE – for your health
Over my 25+ years as an acupuncturist I have accumulated a large body of knowledge about what it takes to get and stay healthy. For the past 3 years I have focused on coaching and teaching. Below is a listing of general categories of things I know about. If you have questions, issues or concerns I might be able to help with please contact me (see below). I will gladly consult with you by email or over the telephone as needed to give you an infusion of what I know. This is factual knowledge, nothing magic here, so the devil is in the details and the details are the fact that you must follow through and do things to make changes. What that looks like, what you need to do will be for you to determine but hopefully I can give you tools, techniques, and direction, start you on your way… Over the years my fee has varied depending on many factors. Now, due to many and varied influences I am “giving it away.” You cannot pay me for services. 100% no charge. It is important to understand though that the reason I can help you is because someone in the past donated to make my services available to a then unknown person in the future who happens to be you! So if you feel that you receive value from me, consider donating to help ensure that I can continue to be available to anyone and everyone. The amount should be based on your own heart calculation of value received and your life situation i.e. what you can afford. Please do pass on my contact information and the list below.

(Fear of future problems can get you started but will not keep you going for the long haul)
1) I have been an acupuncturist for over 25 years and a health coach for about 3 years. I have also studied diet and nutrition fairly extensively over the past 5 or 6 years and done much personal experimentation with how/what I eat and how that affects my body.
2) Reading extensively in diet and nutrition research I have found it necessary to learn how to separate the good from the not so good from the downright irresponsible. I am what would be called a secondary researcher, making somewhat of a hobby of reading the research of others and coming to my own conclusions as to what it all means.
3) I have been a devoted practitioner of meditation for over 45 years including a number of long retreats dedicated to very intensive practice. I have made many mistakes, taken a lot of wrong turns down dead-ends, and worked my way back out to what seems to be a more or less steadily progressive path.
