Like so many artists and teachers, my ability to work has shifted dramatically due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I've moved my JAM and meditation programs online in an effort to provide continuity of programming, and I'm offering all these programs on a donation basis so the barrier to entry is less, as I know many are in difficult financial position these days.
I will need financial support in order to be able to continue offering programs. If you have the means, any donation you can offer helps immensely.
Ways to donate:
Please reach out if you'd like to donate but neither of these methods works for you.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
