Yana's general approach to pricing is to balance her economic realities and justice needs with your economics realities and justice needs.


All services and trainings offered are offered on a sliding scale, unless you are part of a large, relatively wealthy institution.

The basic fee for teaching and consulting is $90/hour or $750/day, but what she actually charges depends a lot on your circumstances. Same with talks. Please recognize that you may want her to come to you to do a one hour talk, but there are a whole lot of hours that go into the lead up (and travel) for that one hour.

All fees quoted are for actual work time (including prep time, but not travel time) and should be read as “plus expenses”. Expenses may be zero if the work is done remotely, or significant if she is traveling to you and is on site for multiple nights. In all cases, though, she charges for actual expenses, not a theoretical per diem. Please note that, especially for groups in the low and medium income and assets categories, Yana is happy to work with you on creative brainstorming for raising funds for the work. Long term job rates can also be negotiated down some.

Here's a rough guide for determining where you fall in Yana's sliding scale:

Category 1: Low Income and Assets clients

Examples include:

  • nonprofits and social change groups with an annual budget of $150K or less

  • intentional communities forming with a currently small group, and/or a largely working class and poor group

  • individuals with personal income of less than $60K/year and with minimal personal assets

For these groups and individuals, Yana's fees can go as low as $45/hour or $450/day. However, if they are able to pay more, that is very much appreciated. (Note: Yana is in this category herself.)

Individuals who fall into this category are also eligible for discounted rates on Yana's general publicly offered trainings.

Category 2: Middle Income and Assets clients

Examples include:

  • nonprofits, cooperatives and social change groups with an annual budget of $150K-500K

  • established intentional communities, especially those with a significant portion of members who are middle class

  • universities with small endowments and speaker budgets

  • businesses with annual financial flow of up to $250K

  • individuals with personal income of $60-100K and some personal assets

These groups should pay the standard fee of $90/hour or $750/day. A large public talk for a client in this category is $1,000-1,500, with other events at your location during that day rolled into that fee.

Category 3: High Income and Assets clients

Examples include:

  • nonprofits, cooperatives and social change groups with an annual budget of over $500K

  • large, established intentional communities, especially those with a significant portion of members who are middle- or upper-class

  • universities with large endowments and speaker budgets

  • businesses with annual financial flow of over $250K

  • individuals with personal income of over $100K and significant personal assets

These clients should pay an hourly fee of $125/hour and daily fee of $1,250/day. Large public talks at large universities or in corporate settings should pay in the range of $1,500 to $2,500, based on your university’s or company’s standard practices.
