Voluntary Contribution

OMN-PARTICIPATION

For Open Mindfulness to develop as widely and openly as possible, the Open Mindfulness (OMT) practice and transmission activities are not charged like consumer goods, as usually done by non profit practitioners in the training field.

For Open Mindfulness to develop as widely and openly as possible, the Open Mindfulness (OMT) practice and transmission activities are not provided for a fee as is usually done by practitioners in the field.

The voluntary contribution model avoids a consumer mentality and helps us reconsider our relationship to wealth and money. It builds on the traditional mindful donation rule of conduct with a modern  version which is being developed in the field of social economics.

The contribution is given in full awareness, taking into account the estimated value of what we received, the cost of the activity and our own financial capabilities.

The amount corresponding to the organizational costs of the retreat or the training is the minimal fee to reach the break-even point that enables  the continuity of the activities for the benefit of all. It is given as a reference point as the “cost price per person and per day .” We can then contribute according to what we have received with relationship to our real financial abilities.

And if we give above the cost price, we:

  • help developing and implementing projects that are beneficial to all
  • make up for the contributions that are below the break-even point
  • offer a donation to the instructors, which is a way to thank them.

The OMC-Network managers are at your disposal for any complementary information you may require, including any financial difficulties you may face.

For persons or groups that are members of an organization acting as a moral entity, the OMC-Network will study the requests on a case per case basis. It will thus appreciate the value of the service rendered in an altruistic and responsible spirit-based economy approach.
