Swapping Creation for Inspiration

Apr 11th 2011, 16:51, by Swapsity

It was an exchange of art and energy for Swapsity members Tori and SherDoc. The pair met at a church to swap a reflexology super session from SherDoc for one of Tori’s painting, which SherDoc plans to give to his best friend as a housewarming gift. It was a successful exchange for both—and one that wouldn’t have been possible without barter.

“I’m guessing a masterpiece like that would have cost at least $450 if hung in a gallery, but I got it for free,” says SherDoc of Tori’s painting.

She also walked away from the experience, her very first Swapsity trade, completely satisfied.

“I truly don’t think you can put a price on a wonderful energetic exchange with a beautiful soul,” says Tori of the energy treatment she received.

Tori loves the simplicity of swapping and enjoys sharing with others, having traded her artwork with friends in the past. She is looking forward to swapping more artwork in the future, reminding people that bartering is an affordable way to get some fine art for your home. “I love having an opportunity to give artwork to people who normally don't go to galleries and shows to get their masterpieces,” she says.

Trading for Tori’s artwork wasn’t the only successful swap SherDoc, an aspiring yogi, made that day. He also swapped a private yoga session for a yoga book from India on positive health and yogic knowledge. A few days later, he found another swap partner and is trading massage therapy skills for web site creation. SherDoc’s still on the lookout for more swaps. He’s experienced in many ancient healing systems and is offering lessons in the didgeridoo, Tibetan Throat Singing and a wide range of treatments, including magical musical massages and chakra-balancing guided visualization.

A veteran barterer passionate about supporting a resource-based economy, SherDoc advises other members to just start swapping! Tori suggests keeping an open-mind toward new opportunities and learning new skills. Also, offer potential swap partners something outside of his or her specific WishList. “You just never know,” she says.

Reach out to Tori and SherDoc and you could be the next to have an amazing swap experience!
