ON SACRED RECIPROCITY:
The tuition for this course is a sliding scale between $80-100 per month. This is more than our other courses because we are confident that this is content you will not be able to find anywhere else, based on over 30 years of study & labor, and a completely different level of teachings. However we want to continue making it as accessible as possible to our community and so are committed to this sliding scale and have many other courses at different ranges as well. If at any time your circumstances change but you are deeply committed to the process we are always open to discussing temporary arrangements.
