Shared Sentiments on the sliding scale model by fellow hebalist, Dori Midnight:

“It is important to me to make my work accessible and affordable to everybody. I use a sliding scale and ask you to determine where you fall on it- a way of thinking about is if you can afford to buy plane tickets, own a house, are gainfully employed you fall on the high end and if you have to choose between groceries or rent and accessing healing work, you pay on the lower end. If you are struggling to make ends meet, are on SSI or receive any kind of assistance, are disabled and QTBIPOC, etc, please contact me about low income rates or pay what you can. Since I see my healing work as activism and community work, part of my work is done for free, so by paying me what you are able, you are helping everyone access healing work too."
