“I helped Bill declutter his house and property. When Bill wanted to save a piece of tattered foam I was real with him. I told him I felt he was disrespecting my gift to help him declutter. He didn’t let go of the foam but at the end of the four hours he thanked me and hoped we meet again.” Luke
"I had a busy week and I promised Katie I'd spray essential oils of garlic on her property. I stuck to my promise and like all gift transactions something unexpected popped up. Durning the time I would have been paid for my work and moved on to the next job in a normal money transaction, something else happened. I told Katie about sulfur. Sulfur used to fall from the air in our acid rain. Ticks weren't bad back then. Garlic has a sulfur component. Garlic mustard is out there trying to accumulate sulfur. Our collagen that spider webs throughout our bodies needs 10 parts nitrogen to one part sulfur. This is the same network that the spirochete that causes lyme exploits. Bring up the sulfur and bring down the Lyme! Katie's gift to me was listening to my passion!" Luke
There are four basic components to a group meeting.
1) Create the sacred space by answering: Why is giving and receiving beautiful?
2) Share your gifts
3) Share your needs
4) Express gratitude for exchanges
Groups can be public and all can be welcome. People can rotate through groups and people can stay in one group. Existing groups can add-on Generosity to their meetings. Once this feels sufficiently natural then the training wheels can be taken off! Spontaneous giving and receiving without a group is also highly encouraged!
