About Me  

I'm joining Service Space because ... I want to serve the ones who Serve

One thing I'm grateful for is ... all the luminaries that have been lightening my life in the past years

Challenges Of Giftivism

Jul 30, 2019, 2 comments, 18 smiles [Below is an edited transcript of a delightful conversation with Nipun and some spiritual elders of the Heartfulness ecosystem .] Victor: Our institutional culture ethos is to give all the teachings for free, but we do have some material costs. Brian, in particular, is holding this edge at the Ohio center that he runs. When we asked Daaji, he said he's been thinking about Giftivism and pay-forward. So we thought we'd ask you about it. Nipun: Thank you. What a joy to know that Daaji is resonant with these ideals. There are various ways to think about it. Let’s consider reciprocity -- giving and receiving.

From Gandhi 3.0 To Deep U

Yesterday we finished the first official edition of the Deep U program, a 3-day retreat of Awareness-Based Human Flourishing. I feel that the program is the "coming together" of everything I've been learning, gathering and integrating in the last 12 years (Mindfulness, Heartfulness, Theory U, Social Presencing Theatre, etc.). After Gandhi 3.0 retreat, it became clear that one ingredient that could be deepened in our world today: a huuuuge amount of selfless Love and giftivism! Like the one we have been experiencing and receiving through this ServiceSpace beautiful ecosystem. But a question was present: how to give selflessly what you've been cultivating in the last decade?
