Generous Givers

SINCE 16 MARCH THE PRACTICE IS CLOSED DUE TO THE CORONA VIRUS. MY HANDS ARE TIED AND I CAN ONLY OFFER QUARANTINE-CUDDLING. BESIDES THAT, FOR THE RENT OF MY PRACTICE I DEPEND ON ANYONE WHO IS WILLING/ ABLE TO FINANCIALLY TAKE CARE OF ME A LITTLE. THAT IS UNTIL THE FINANCIAL ARRANGEMENTS FOR SELF EMPLOYED REACH ME. I WILL OF COURSE TAKE PHYSICAL CARE OF YOU AND OTHERS ON A LATER TIME. THANKS IN ADVANCE! GIVE A GIFT OR ORDER A VOUCHER NOW.

My vision for my practice:                                       Reducing the unnecessary lack of necessary life needs: touch, relaxation and sincere attention. Why would anyone in the Netherlands – or in the world – have a shortage of this? Well-being is a human right and it should be accessible to everyone.

I believe that everyone should have acces to necessary life needs: Touch, Relaxation and Sincere Attention. That is why I have started an Experiment in Generosity by applying Gift Economy in my practice.

WHAT IS THE GIFT ECONOMY?

In a gift economy, goods and services are given without any strings attached; it is an economic system where it is the circulation of the gifts within the community that leads to increase — increase in connections, increase in relationship strength; in this context, hoarding actually decreases wealth. At its core, gift-economy is a shift from consumption to contribution, transaction to trust, scarcity to abundance, isolation to community and a shift “from-Me-to-We”.

GIFT ECONOMY AT LEPELTJE LEPELTJE KNUFFELSESSIES & MASSAGE

For Individual Sessions, group workshops, concerts and other events applies that we have made a start-up investment. Now it is up to the participants & guests to maintain this Chain of Giving by paying for the one who comes after them. After scheduling an appoinment everyone receives an appoinment confirmation & payment form with the costs, and on which they can enter one of the options:

  • I choose to pay the full costs for this session (the event p.p.)              : € …
  • I choose to pay a different* amount for this session (this event p.p.): € …

* this amount may be higher or lower than the full costs for this session, and will be stated on your invoice. If you pay more, someone with a smaller budget can pay less. If you pay less, the remaining amount is a gift from others who paid a little more.

The Gift-Economy philosophy is also supported by the experts and musicians with whom I collaborate. I am grateful for their warm-hearted commitment and trust. For us there is no fixed income. Everyone receives a percentage of the proceeds per event.

You can find more information on my page Payment Philosophy.
