The Power of Community

Thank You for Supporting Seven Pillars!

Our eBook campaign on Indiegogo closed at 11:59pm Pacific time last night, having raised $8800 from 140 donors! In addition, we have received some donations via mail over the past few weeks. These additional gifts bring our total to approximately $9500. Wow! Thank you so much to each and every one of you who showed your support by making a donation!

Also, thank you for bearing with us throughout the barrage of campaign emails. We know it was a lot and your commitment means so much.

The very good news is that we have raised enough funding through the campaign to complete our eBook, which we anticipate being ready for publication in the next 90 days or so. We are excited to say that we will be able to use many pieces of Cecil Collins’ magnificent artwork in the design. The rights for these difficult-to-secure images were paid for by your dollars! Thank you! As we proceed through layout, we will also be looking at additional opportunities to add multimedia elements to the book (we have plenty of exciting ideas!)—also made possible by your donations!

In the coming weeks, as we approach the eBook’s launch, we will continue to seek grants and gifts that will support the eBook’s marketing and publicity efforts. The very healthy level of participation in this crowdfunding campaign should put us in good standing with donors as we make our asks. If you can recommend possible funding sources, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

So, for all of these reasons, Corin and I, along with the rest of the eBook team, would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all of you for your support on this project!! We are one step farther along the path to cultivating a living wisdom that is essential for our time!
