Clarification of what is a TCEHW Sponsored Event, and what is not...

From: SchaOn Blodgett, CCP, B.
Sent on: Sunday, July 18, 2010 10:46 PM
To create some further clarification, all TCEHW Sponsored Events are in some way free, for example...

The MN Shadows Faire, although not free to be a vendor at the Faire, it is Free for people to attend the event and walk around. You do not have to donate or purchase anything from the vendors if you do not want to, though you may still experience various aspects of the event at no cost.

In the past, there have been various workshops/classes/demonstrations on various topics like Matrix Energetics, Esogetics, The Psychic School in a Scientific Age, etc, etc, etc... all of these are free to attend (and sometimes people have left donations, though, the donation is not required, and does not exclude people who do not want to give a donation). These classes/workshops/demonstrations, etc, often times are used to promote a pay class that is held later, and are used to education people in a safe environment to help allow them to make an educated decision as to if they would like to "shell-out" the money to learn more in-depth about that specific modality.

There is also the Reiki Share that is a free event, all that is required is that you participate and share.

Then there is also the Tuesday Chat & Play Social, which is free to come and hang out and have conversation. You may purchase coffee, or tea, or ice cream, etc... though that is not required.

All these events are about building community, increasing education of that community, and helping to create an awareness within the mainstream.

Now... if you would like to post things like a Promotion on Crystals for Sale, a Massage or Reiki Special, Psychic Guidance, etc where people must pay money to interact, THEN that may be sent to the [address removed], as well as posted within the "Classes & Workshops & Events (Oh My!) in the Community" or "Local Stores, Special - Promotions & More..." Message Boards as the message boards are automatically pulled into the Facebook Fan Site. The reason for this distinction is that the Calendar entries send out automatic notices to the group, where as the message boards/mailing lists do not. In the past I had thought considerable about allowing for Non-Free or Fee-based events to be posted on the calendar, though myself, the previous organizer, and many of the assistant organizers at that time all agreed that would detract from the group.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns with this... please feel free to email me... or please feel free to post a public comment in the Topic located in "The General Discussion Forum" on the message boards.

Thank you!
SchaOn
