We are a member-supported non-profit community who thrive by a wholehearted vision of gratitude, equality, inclusivity, sustainability, and abundance. By offering many of our services and gatherings through the Gift Economy (pay what feels best), we make spiritual healing and wellness accessible to all.
The Gift Economy is our way of putting into practice our values, by showing all of us how to honor our sacred intuition. We trust ourselves to know when is the best time to give and when is the best time to receive. And when we feel the non-judgmental support of our around us doing the same, our growth is exponential.
Every dollar goes towards supporting the OP Community.

At Ordinary Pioneer, we’d rather say that we share many of our gatherings and workshops as gifts. The term “free” tends to evoke ideas of one-time deals, coupons, and other grab-and-go cheap items. However, what we’re building at Ordinary Pioneer is incredibly valuable, ongoing, and profound. We are coming together as a community to experience the delight (and intentional vulnerability!) that comes through sharing.
By using the Gift Economy to share, we invite people to intuitively decide what they wish to share. Some people may choose to share a one-time financial gift, a monthly financial gift, volunteer, or simply share their positive energy or wise counsel with the community.
If it's on your heart to share a contribution, we invite you to take a moment to discover an amount that feels best to your heart. Perhaps in the moment, nervous feelings arise about looming bills to pay and so it feels best to consider volunteering. Or perhaps you choose to share dollars and so you choose the first number that pops into your head. Or perhaps you pray to a higher power and allow them to guide you in the way/amount you share. When considering how much to financially share, there is no wrong amount. We are grateful for all monetary energy you flow into Ordinary Pioneer and we trust your intuition to lead the way.
You can bring cash to your session or gathering, use your debit/credit card when you register by clicking "Add a Pay What you Want Amount," or click on the "Share Financial Gift" button at the top of this page. You may also mail us a check at any time.

Yes! If you feel the calling to support our mission, we are excited to co-create with you. We invite you to make a monthly contribution of any amount. This amount can change or cancel at any time and will help us share support with those who currently have less financial means.
Seva is a Sanskrit word that refers to the generous sharing of time, skills, and energy in the service of something greater than oneself. It is a profound method of awakening that opens our eyes to feel the richness, beauty and gratitude inherent in all of life. Seva cultivates a great sense of compassion and a deepening trust in the Divine.
At Ordinary Pioneer, seva is a big part of what we do. As we learn to see each other as family—and, ultimate, as One—we serve the needs of others even when it interferes with our own comfort, thus effectively dissolving the ego’s selfish desires. Ultimately, seva helps us to feel at home in our own skin and at home in the world. We do not have to wait for an afterlife: heaven is possible, right here and right now.
If you feel called, we welcome the sharing of seva as an expression of gratitude. Please send us an email if this is a path you'd like to explore!
The Gift Economy is the new way of ‘doing business’ in the world. Many of us healers, teachers, lightworkers, and caregivers desire to contribute our gifts to this world in ways that are inclusive and accessible to all. We invite you to learn through this gifted course, LIVING IN THE GIFT, taught by our mentor Charles Eisenstein. We also highly recommend his book Sacred Economics.
