The Institute for Contemplative Life is a tax-exempt, non-profit, 501(c)3 organization (Federal I.D. # is 80-0272164). Inner Pathway is its tradename.

Although Inner Pathway is partially funded by its book sales and events, this revenue does not cover operating expenses.  Thus, individual donations and bequests enable our nonprofit organization to fulfill its mission of sharing the “inner pathway” of qualities such as love, forgiveness, compassion, gratitude, humor, beauty, and joy.

Individual donations and bequests, for example, make it possible for us to offer free or reduced-rate public seminars, audio and video presentations, online courses, scholarly research into contemplative education, spiritual direction services, and the publication of books such as our award-winning The Power of Love, the profits of which are all donated to the charitable organizations of those who contributed. We are currently working on the audiobook.  We are grateful for all donations!
