Funds for scholarships for students interested in training or mystery school classes, or donations towards the ongoing work (taxes, fees, and like for solo-running a small LLC, or contribute towards a savings for a future space, we’re planning for the future to provide physical places, and learning opportunities for all.
How you can help
“All beings, including each one of us, enemy and friend alike, exist in patterns of mutuality, interconnectedness, co-responsibility and ultimately in unity.”
― Joan Halifax
You may not know this but there is a lot that goes into running a small business on your own, from administration, to self-promotion, advertising, and teaching (materials, lessons plans, and showing up). I give a lot to make this work well, and provide spaces for those interested in learning.
While Star Stone Education LLC is not a non-profit, this is not a tax deductible donation, which requires a whole other level of team commitment.
I do accept donations to provide scholarships to upcoming mystery school and other training programs, such as Reiki. Most of the time I take students who have demonstrated a commitment to the learning, and provide the materials and teachings without the contributions of others, because I feel healing should be available to all.
I’m also trying to raise income through Patreon.com/ScottKSmith to create a savings that will eventually fund a space or create a pool to pay for rental fees for future classes. While we’ve been in the pandemic this has not been possible, and the modest income has paid my bills more than anything, I’ve created a secondary savings, with transparency, that donors can donate all the above listed funds to, and more to provide for spaces, scholarships, or simply help out with the work, or costs.
Through the PayPal donation button below you can indicate how you would like your funds to be used. Donations are anonymous, and we never share our donors names without first confirming this is ok. You can donate towards:
– Funds for future spaces
– Monthly operations fees
– Or towards my work
