There are plenty of ‘free’ hospitals and clinics
– the costs of which are usually endured by independently wealthy funders, grants, or the government.
Our “fund” is the universe– the abundant and infinite. We believe in giving our services- as a service. The patient’s cost of the visit was already paid by the prior patient! That’s right- an anonymous gift. The patient can pay-it-forward if s/he wishes to do so.
How much should they pay? Its totally up to them. We require nothing- we giftour services, no strings attached. If a patient chooses to give, it is from their hearts. Our interconnectedness is evident… once upon a time, healers would take care of their community and in turn the community would take care of them. There was no need to “charge” fees to patients or to have “insurance”… the community relationships were strong
We are working towards a community-based health center that is based in the gift-economy model. At its core, gift economy is a shift from consumption to contribution, transaction to trust, scarcity to abundance and isolation to community.
The gifts given to Karma Clinic help to sustain the costs of running the center and providing life-sustenance for the healers that have shared their gifts. Karma Clinic aims to be a self-sufficient, integral health care model.
