ORA+CLE began as a limited edition art object and divination tool. Since its debut, and in response to interest from shops nationwide, I designed a second edition available at select retailers. Now, to complete the journey, I’ve created a group program: ORA+CLE: 365 Todays. Daily divination for a coterie of curious humans.
ORA+CLE uniquely reveals the many intersections of relationships: the ones with yourself, other humans and even time. One of the most profound lessons I’ve gained from (creating) this tool is exploring my intrinsic value. Perceived or calculated. Tangible and intangible. Oftentimes, this shows up in questioning how I make, how I charge, and how I receive money. For 365 Todays, I believe I’ve come up with something congruent with my ethos.
ABOUT PRICE & PRICING
Typically, pricing products and services is strategic. There are formulas to use, psychology to seize upon. Over the years, I’ve play around with some of these conventions with varying satisfaction, but rarely joy. To change this paradigm my approach has been to conjure a number where 1) I’m neither subsidizing the engagement or charging a high number because the market says I can and 2) the number, in and of itself, delights my eye and feels good from the neck down—NOT in my head.
To make this work available to everyone interested, regardless of finances, I’m offering pricing that’s relational, dynamic and leverages trust. In the SHOP, you’ll see the dropdown offers 4 prices: $222, $333, $444, $666. If you are wondering what you should pay for ORA+CLE: 365 Todays, use the below not as edict, but a guide:
THE TWOS Maybe you’re unemployed, or in school. Maybe you’re balancing a full-time job AND your education. Whatever the scenario, what a gift it is to bring 365 Todays into your life, unencumbered by quotidian money worries. This is my wish for you.
Choose $222 if, for example, you’re a student, on work-study, or unemployed.
THE THREES Being employed often isn’t enough. There’s a class of working Americans that systemically are financially disenfranchised. They bring the same degree of talent as their peers (education, time, sweat-equity) but make significantly less money. To begin to right this left, I’ve created a price with you in mind.
Choose $333 if, for example, you’re an adjunct teacher, work in the nonprofit sector, are POC or Transgender.
THE FOURS All things being equal, this is what ORA+CLE: 365 Todays would cost. You have a steady paycheck, and/or savings in the bank. Once or twice a year you have a spa day, you take a workshop or go on a retreat, maybe you gift someone or consult with an astrologer yourself.
Choose $444 if, for example, you’re a photographer, lawyer, coach, shop owner, designer, SAHM, in real estate, etc..
THE SIXES Do you feel good when you pay a person the full-price they’ve asked for—without haggling. Do you recognize your economic privilege, regardless of household income—and know it doesn’t make you more deserving of a human? Do you plan on hiring a: designer, coach, shrink, personal trainer or similar this year? Do you feel flush, today? And most days? Simply put…
Choose $666 if this sound like you. Or if $1.83 a day seems like highway robbery. OR! You believe money is an energetic and symbolic tool for growth.
As you consider if ORA+CLE: 365 Todays is for you, do like me, check in with your body. She knows what to do. Always. All ways. But maybe you can’t discern if your belly’s fluttering feels like nerves or excitement… sometimes, more than others, it can be hard to know. THIS is when I add to the mix my brain case powers.
