The BAoL 10: They’ve done so much for us. Let’s stand by them! URGENT!
Update by Skywalker, Jan. 16th:
Thank you all for your support, both moral and financial. The sum donated so far has actually enabled us to seek legal counsel, and we are working hard to quash the Google/Automatic subpoena. More funds will be needed soon, so keep spreading the word about what is happening on this blog.
Thank you again
- $2,300 at this moment.
- The BAoL 10 really need $5,000 to retain lawyers by Tuesday, 01/11/10. WE CAN DO IT!!!
- URGENT: Some people have generously offered to make up the difference between what we’ve raised and what we need: Please email me at email@example.com.
- There’s now a comment on reddit about Ravi’s legal tactics against the BAoL 10. Please click, comment, and share: Let’s get our message out there!
By now, everyone has heard that Art of Living is suing the BAoL 10, the anonymous authors who created Beyond the Art of Living and Klim’s Confessions of a Guruholic.
This is serious stuff. Even if the suit is without merit—which I believe without a shred of doubt—in America it costs money to defend oneself.
Even against abusive legal practices.
The BAoL 10 are talking with lawyers. They MUST raise a
$5,000$6,500 retainer for a lawyer to take this case—immediately.
This site is a labor of love. None of the bloggers we’ve come to care about—Skywalker, Klim, The Doctor, nor anyone else—have that kind of money.
They’ve done so much for literally thousands of us.
Let’s get their back on this one. They deserve our support.
Please donate whatever you can. Just click the button below:
Every dollar you donate will go directly to the defense fund. (PayPal charges a small processing fee.)
The Center for Healing is performing this service at no charge out of respect for everything the BAoL 10 have already accomplished. And will accomplish in the future.
And because we must fight bullying tactics by any so-called “spiritual organization.”
If you don’t see the amount you’d like to donate listed, you may make multiple donations in the shopping cart.
If you prefer to donate anonymously, please send a check or money order to:

- We must act immediately. The BAoL has literally days to quash AoL’s subpoena.
- Our immediate goal is small. If just 100 readers respond with a $50 donation, we meet our immediate goal instantly.
- Any amount is welcome—large or small. Please give whatever you can.
- Every dollar you give goes directly to the BAoL Legal Defense Fund (after PayPal’s processing fees).
If you love this blog, if you care what happens to Skywalker, Klim, The Doctor, or others, if you love free speech and hate Internet censorship, please give what you can.
Now is the time to stand by the BAoL 10.
