I will share in detail some of this even if it doesn’t concern you directly.
The reason why I am sharing this is because I am in the deep process of identifying the codes, the behaviors, structure, boundaries, pricing, etc that make an experience like this one easy and sustainable on the long term without major effort.
SLIDING SCALE PRICING – NO WIN – BACK TO FIXED PRICE
The sliding scale was $10-30/day. Here is what happened. 90% of residents paid the absolute minimum. One person paid $15/day and another one paid around $20/day because of the coaching and inspiration he received while here.
The strong feeling that I get is that when I say $10-$30 sliding scale, most people simply hear “great $10!”.
I remember launching donation based events in New York recently and the response over there was very different. Way more generosity came through.
So, the sliding scale thing is not really sustainable on my end. It seems to create confusion and a very ungrounded feeling around the whole pricing structure.
Glad I tried! I learned a lot from the experience.
Shifted back to fixed price.
Way more stable and easier to manage with zero negotiation involved.
I posted the VITAL GATE STRUCTURE document so that everyone can see it + I will probably print it so that we have it in the space too.
A strong structure allows us all to really relax.
It is that simple.
It protects our freedom, space and respect for each other.
As I wrote these guidelines yesterday and posted them this morning, I felt this huge weight taken off my shoulders.
I felt this deep smile coming in, opening of my heart chakra and energetic expansion.
Basically I felt a deep space opening!
It is actually one of the most powerful mystical experiences I had so far at VITAL GATE.
And that happened around setting up and reinforcing structure!
Interesting isn’t it?
THIS IS NOT A BED AND BREAKFAST! IT IS A PRICELESS EXPERIENCE!
Activations, raw food, group coaching, one on one coaching, community, support, exciting high energy meals, lots of new techniques for life mastery, energy training, beauty, calm, security, comfort, serene environment away from streets and pollution!
Whaou! Whaou! Whaou!
Overall, this first month has been good at 80%.
I love giving a mark to an experience.
What needs to be done is simply fine tuning from now on.
Waves of gratitude to all those who came to play and celebrate so far.
This place is dedicated to you!
You are the jewel of this experience and the very reason all this was started!
Your contributions, feed back, presence, smile is what makes this experience worth!
VITAL GATE IS OPEN!
If you feel you can do better, notice something I can’t see, agree or disagree with what’s happening here in any way, your feed back is very precious to me. I will listen carefully to everything you share, take it in and use what I can to help bring this place to total resonance.
That’s all for now!
More coming soon!
I love you!
