We are aware Chapel is located in North Wales (few hours away) from London.

We are aware that some people have a lifestyle without mobile phone, bank account, payment cards, government ID or even without any money at all.

We will not interfere with your lifestyle choices and we will be accomodating.

If our values resonate with you and the money is the only thing stopping you from coming - we are open to travel grant application where we sponsor up to 80% of your travel costs.

<<< link to the form will follow >>>

<<< for now just email and Slack to introduce yourself >>>

There are some conditions though:

  • you want participate in the project
  • you have tangible skills to offer
  • you book your transport
  • you get yourself here
  • you are respectful towards our community and follow code of conduct

(no strings attached otherwise)

Real life example, explanation why we are doing this:

  • We transferred money
  • No payment card
  • We decided to book the transport anyway
  • Information we received was wrong (not enough time for transfer from bus station to the airport)
  • The following day booked another bus (wasted £100 worth of time and a lot of frustration to book ticket worth 9 EUR)
  • Despite booking earlier bus, the person didn't make to the flight

We come from the position of unconditional love and infinite abundance. It is easy to just send you money or book your flight - but will you appreciate and reciprocate? Our energy, time, focus, attention, money that goes towards your travel is not invested into the Chapel.

By this point you surely understand - we cannot...

And we don't do this because we don't like you. We do this because we like you a lot - and we want to offer helpful hand. Don't call us evil or inhumane or anything... Whether we like it or not, modern western world is based on capitalism and in the foreseable future money in one form or another - cash, cards, bitocin, alternative cyptocurrencies - is here to stay to faciliate transfer of the value.

It may seem controversial - being without money costs too much - same applies to being homeless - <<< link to my blog >>>

(the cost of being homeless - both to individual as well as society is much higher that a few hundred pounds to rent a room)

Sorry about the tangent, sorry about the Travel Policy, sorry but we are not sorry - following core values of trust, honesty and integrity.
