Holiday Gift Program

5 December 2010 One Comment Print article Print article

Sita Ram!

Recently a few disciples presented a holiday giving idea that is a great way for disciples to participate in the DYC matching grant program before the end of the year. This is a great way for disciples to purchase a gift and give one to DYC at the same time.

Here’s how it works:

You may offer fellow disciples a service or product:

  • Disciples, using this web page, may offer a service or product to other disciples for a monetary donation to DYC. The entire fee to be a donation to DYC.
  • From now until December 10, if you have something you are interested in offering, please contact us via the comment section below and Sue Rama will contact you with her email address.Then via email, you may submit a description (with a picture in JPEG format, if desired) of your product or service, and the fees you would like to charge. Try to get yours in as early as possible, in time for holiday giving.
  • Once approved, submissions will be published in Shakti Online .
  • You are responsible for collecting the check for Dhyanyoga Centers and whatever shipping charges you require. You must agree to send the checks you receive for Dhyanyoga Centers to Antioch within 4 days of receipt.

If you are interested in a service or product offered:

Use the comment section below to indicate your interest in a particular service or product that you see listed. Enter your email address in the field as requested, not in the comment itself (that way it is not published online).

Sue Rama will send you the email address of the person offering the product or service and you can contact them and deal with them directly. You will be sending your DYC contribution directly to the person providing the service. To make this as simple as possible for bookkeeping, we are asking that contributions be made by check or money order. Please write a check or get a money order made out to Dhyanyoga Centers for the amount for the product or service. A separate check for any applicable shipping charges  should be made out to the legal name of the person offering the product or service and not to Dhyanyoga Centers.That person is responsible for sending on the contribution to DYC. NOTE: as long as your letter and check are mailed to the service provider on or before December 23, it will be doubled by the matching grant.

Happy holidays to all!

4. QXCI Healing Sessions

Sarita Valentine is offering sessions on my QXCI machine as a fundraiser for Dhyanyoga Centers. QXCI stands for Quantum Xroid Consciousness Interface. This device is basically an elaborate computer program designed for healing. Sessions to be done at a distance.

The QXCI sends frequencies to an individual, measures the responses, and follows-up with corrective frequencies. It works like homeopathy. There are approximately 8000 frequencies programmed into it. In addition, there are various programs within the machine which address just about anything you can think of from a virtual face lift to athlete’s foot.

Between now and Dec. 31st, I am offering two-hour, long-distance sessions on a sliding scale of $25.00 to $100.00 per session and donating all the proceeds to Dhyanyoga Centers. All I require is your name and date of birth. All donations will be doubled by the matching grant program.

Each session will include: Chakra integration, Meridian and Acupuncture Therapy, and frequency therapy to “tune up” the internal organs, nervous system, and endocrine system.

In addition, you may choose one specific focus for your session:

  • Immune Booster: “Zap” viruses, bacterias, funguses, and spirochetes. Includes blood balancing treatment, lymphatic stimulation, and general immune system stimulation.
  • Chiropractic Adjustment: Releases blockages in your spine, relaxes your muscles, and adjusts cranial-sacral plates, reduces stress in hips, nerves, shoulders, and knees.
