I live in a gift economy, so I give all of my time and work freely to you. I depend on your good will and generosity so that my family and I may live, and so that I may continue to write and share insights as we grow to greater consciousness. If you were inspired by this, if it sparked new insight or understanding in you, I invite you to also give, to participate in "the Gift". I accept gifts primarily in the form of credit/debit card donations. It takes only a few moments, by entering the dollar amount in the box below and clicking the blue button to get started. All transactions are processed by Stripe, a secure third-party payment processor. I express my deepest gratitude to you for your Gift!
You may also participate in this community and give in other ways: comment on posts, subscribe to email updates, like the Facebook page, follow my personal Facebook profile, ask to join the community's Facebook group, ask me a question, submit a scripture for me to translate, submit a "First Vision" experience, or contact me to talk about something else, or to offer your gifts in another way. I look forward to getting to know you!

  1. We essentially can all be thought of as having ADD in that we all struggle with deficits of attention. Meditation seems a far greater and less risky way to treat this problem, especially in kids, vs. standard biomedical approaches. It’s simple, easily fit into a daily routine, can be used multiple times in a day if needed, etc.
