Conscious Media Network - free video interviews on consciousness and enlightenment

faqs

DO I HAVE TO REGISTER?
You can either be a free viewer or a paid subscriber. You do NOT need to register unless you want to see our original content, in which case you need to become a subscriber.

To become a subscriber, follow the short registration process to gain access to the site. All we ask for is a valid email address, your preferred payment details, which country you live in and how you heard about us.

For non subscribing viewers, the rest of the site is completely free to access including the original Radio interview each month.

As a subscriber, you also get the benefit of another video interview with Regina each month, called the Fifth Element, plus free downloadable transcripts of each interview and a video and audio version of each interview via the podcasts.

I CAN'T SEE THE VIDEOS
For help on making the videos play on the site, please go to our HELP page where there are full instructions on making Flash Player work on both PC and Mac. As long as the plug in player has been installed correctly, all the video content will play.

DO YOU HAVE A PODCAST?
We have a podcast for paid subscribers which you can access via the podcast link on the Home page. By subscribing, you will be able to watch the video offline at full screen via iTunes and also on your iPod. You can make DVD's for your TV or give them away to friends who do not have computers. You can create a wonderful archive of material for your personal education. (All we ask is that you do not upload them to any other site, even if you have the best of intentions. All the material is copyright.)

WHICH DVD FORMAT DO I NEED?
The USA and Canada uses NTSC format while Europe and most of the rest of the world uses PAL. To make sure you have the correct format ordered for your country, please consult THIS LIST

WHY DON'T YOU HAVE A FORUM?
We have thought about having a forum since we first started, but have decided not to have one because of the technical challenges of having one on the page of each interviewee plus a general forum for group discussion; we also do not have the willingness or manpower to monitor the discussion for slanderous comments and blatant self promotion by others and on the advice of respected web masters we are better off without one.

SO HOW DO YOU SUSTAIN YOUR SERVICE?
From inception until April 2010, this entire endeavour has been self funded by our personal savings with the additional help of some donations from viewers. We ask for a subscription for our time, costs and resources, not for the information. We do not charge anyone to be interviewed on the site and they have not paid us to be interviewed - it is entirely by our choice who gets interviewed.

We will attempt to keep the site free of commercial interests for as long as we can with your help. We rely on the generous support of people like you who are willing to donate or purchase a subscription to keep the information available. Please consider supporting this website with an annual subscription or donation and give generously and often so we can facilitate this for your benefit.

HOW DO YOU ACCEPT DONATIONS?
We can accept donations through the Make a Donation button on each page which goes directly to us. But please remember that this is not a substitute for a subscription and will not grant any subscriber access - it is simply a way of donating any amount you can afford towards our sustainability.

We donate a percentage of our subscriptions and donations to other organizations and charities each year, icluding Heifer international, Independent Media Institute, KIVA (as micro-loans) and Information Clearing House, creating a circle of benefit that allows all these organisations to continue operations and fulfill their missions.

ARE YOU A CHARITY/501(c)3?
We are not a charity so donations cannot be made tax deductible for US citizens. If you would like to make a donation, please go to our Support Us page.

HOW DO YOU CHOOSE YOUR INTERVIEW SUBJECTS?
We respond to people and information as we come across them, although we have known about many of the speakers for some time through our conscious journey. We try to bring information from credible sources and from people who have some type of scientific or accredited qualification. It is our intention to present truthful and authentic sources of information to balance the mass media message that seems to predominantly be supported by large drug, car and government organisations. We do not necessarily sanction or endorse every viewpoint but offer them as an alternative perspective that should be included on your path to consciousness.

ARE YOU FOR OR AGAINST ANY POLITICAL PARTY?
We are entirely non partisan and do not support any political party. We believe that there needs to be a system and infrastructure that supports people in being contributing members of society, however we have no guidelines as to how this should be done and do not support any political party, religion or alternative doctrine in any formal or financial way.

CAN I EMBED YOUR VIDEOS ON MY OWN SITE?
Although we feel this information deserves a wide audience, it takes a lot of resources to create it each month. We are not a large organisation and the entire site is operated by two people. By having people come directly to the site to see the material, it affords us the opportunity to gain financial support via the subscription to keep it going. If no one subscribes, like public radio and any other form of public collaboration, we cannot sustain our monthly production.

Another perspective is this one. We do not create our videos as promotional pieces to sell some other product, like a car company would make a promotional video to sell a car. The car company would not mind you posting their video on your site because it would increase the chances of people going out and buying the car, which is where they get their financial return. The videos we produce are our "product". If you 'embed' our material and put it on your own or another site, there is no fair exchange. We are not in a position financially or legally to provide free content to other sites.

THIS IS IMPORTANT INFORMATION SO SHOULDN'T IT BE FREE?
Many people believe that their own conviction renders them above the law because they want others to benefit from this information. Although we applaud this desire, it is still not permitted to take an original copyright production and post it elsewhere, just because your think it is important, spiritual or helpful. If that were true, you would expect films and documentaries you deem worthy of dissemination OK to post on your own site, but would soon hear the call of studio lawyers! In the same vein, you would also expect doctors, therapists, psychologists and all other members of the healing profession to offer their services for free, just because you feel it is beneficial to you and others.

By all means, create a link from your site to ours to promote the information, but please do not embed it on your own site, chop it up and put it into your own "production" or put it on a bit torrent sharing site. We have created Preview Videos for each one of our productions and have already put them on YouTube for marketing and promotional purposes. Your desire to spread the word by embedding our videos somewhere else, directly contributes to the demise of our existence.

We never charge anyone to be on our network. We survive only through adwords, subscriptions and donations and all the income goes to pay for our required resources, bandwidth and our personal work in providing this information to the global internet population.

So, the legal stuff says "All material is copyright and is subject to the applicable copyright laws and penalties for infringement". With that rather heavy statement, we respectifully ask that you help us to remain sustainable and do not upload our video or audio interviews to Video Google, YouTube, Revver, Veoh or any other video sharing site or service and to respect the time and financial resources that have gone into making this site freely available to all. Each of these sites makes you agree that you are not posting copyright information so please abide by these agreements.

If you want to spread the word, simply give people our web address and encourage them to visit the site and support this work.

Thank you.
