Spirit of Seva Project

The Spirit of Seva is Compassionate Service

About the Spirit of Seva Project

In many cultures around the world there is a practice of giving service from the heart. Giving to another person with no expectation of personal gain (Seva) benefits the giver as well as the receiver. Such acts of compassionate service demonstrate how we are connected to all beings and share in their well-being. We believe that this kind of selfless service promotes a spirit of authenticity, honesty, integrity, and generosity that is deeply needed in the world. The Spirit of Seva Project is an experiment in giving.

At our Spirit of Seva Clinics, our practitioners offer Soul Lightening® Acupressure. This is a special form of therapeutic bodywork that supports and balances the whole-being—-body,mind, emotions, and soul. All of the practitioners and administrators of this project donate their time, skill, talent and love. At the end of each session the receiver is invited to pass this gift on to others by offering some kind of service in the world that is easy and joyful for them. Giving from the heart is the only condition. No one will be turned away from a SoS Clinic for lack of funds. Service in kind may take many forms, and a tax-deductible financial gift to The Spirit of Seva Project is one option. Financial gifts will be dispersed as follows: 10% The Spirit of Seva Project Fund • 10% Clinic expenses • 80% Designated service projects. Other forms of giving may include service to the community or even a simple act of kindness to a stranger. Our goal is to cultivate the spirit of giving through conscious and compassionate acts of kindness on behalf of others.

There are many ways you can participate in this exciting project:

  • Receive an acupressure session and then pass the gift on to others
  • Provide acupressure sessions at a Spirit of Seva clinic (approved providers only)
  • Sponsor a Spirit of Seva Clinic or a Seva Stress Release workshop in your community
  • Make a donation (time, talent, clinic space, money)

The Spirit of Seva Project is an opportunity for you to be a part of something bigger than yourself. The time to give compassionate service is NOW!!! For more information about how you can join us call 978-456-0300
