We’re making excellent progress toward the goal of Wildmind becoming a Community-Supported Meditation Initiative. In this new model Wildmind’s teaching will be supported by sponsors contributing as little as $6 each month.
Sponsors will of course gain a number of benefits. All of the new courses I develop will be available only for them. They’ll also have exclusive access to a monthly article and meditation download, as well as an online forum.
There are 1,500 shares available. Right now almost 40% of them have been sponsored. It’s taken only three weeks to get to that point, which is wonderful! Initially I thought it might take up to a year to reach our goal. Now it looks like it’ll be more like three months.
Here’s a graph showing the current position:
At the current rate of growth, we’ll be fully funded by the middle of July. So if you want to be a part of this project, I’d suggest taking action now.
On a personal note, I’m excited about the possibility of being supported by the community of Wildmind’s supporters. It’ll be liberating for me not to have to focus on marketing, and to be able to focus my attention 100% on teaching. It’ll also be a relief to be able, for the first time in years, not to have to constantly be concerned about finances. I can tell you, it’s been hard sometimes!
The transition from the model where we charge for classes to being community-supported is going to be challenging financially, so I’m asking you to contribute so that we can make this change quickly. (If you’re already a sponsor, please help by spreading the word!)
