1. This Association of members, forming a body politic, hereby declares that our mission is to exist as a society living in peace under Natural law, to provide mutual benefits to all Members and to protect our Members’ rights to enter into private agreement through our inherent right to freedom.  

2. As Members, we affirm jurisdiction under inherent law as Natural law. Furthermore, we regard the Constitution for the United States of America and the Declaration of Independence as conscious documents devised by humans to protect the inalienable rights granted us by virtue of being natural-born Earthlings.

Additionally, we confirm that these documents were created to preserve our freedom and to protect our rights and no legislative body shall make a law prohibiting these rights. The First Amendment to the Constitution for the United States of America protects the free exercise of our religion and guarantees our Members the rights of free speech, petition, assembly, and the right to gather together for the lawful purpose of advising and helping one another in asserting our rights under Natural law as preserved by the Federal and State Constitutions.

This Agreement is entered to maintain and protect all rights, constitutional guarantees and freedom of choice over our lives and bodies for every Member of our Association.  

3. We declare the basic right of all of our Members to select spokespeople from our number who could be expected to give wise counsel and advice concerning the needs of our Members, especially for physical, psycho-emotional, spiritual and mental health support, and to select from our membership those Members who are the most skilled to assist and facilitate the actual performance and delivery of services such as but not limited to:

  • Vedic counseling;
  • circadian rhythms, diet and herbal recommendations;
  • hands-on healing practices such as massage, bodywork and marma therapy;
  • psycho-emotional self-inquiry; nature connection and wilderness wisdom practices;
  • meditation, mantra and all manner of multi dimensional self-healing modalities.

4. We proclaim the freedom to choose and create between our Members private agreements governing aspects of our lives in these 3 distinct areas:  

I) how we steward assets  

II) private agreements for the exchange of energy between private members 

III) spiritual endeavors  

5. More specifically, the mission of our Association is to facilitate and accelerate personal, collective and planetary healing through holistic Self-awareness and conscious evolution in the spirit of peace, joy and freedom. Members decide what is best for themselves, their body, mind, spirit and soul.

Our Association understands that holistic health support is an art or practice and subject to many variables. Together, we as Members strive in good faith to provide the services, products and technologies to the very best of our ability on a daily basis. The ultimate goal of membership is to participate in a community of belonging, to practice natural boundaries and cultivate an authentic, intimate relationship with the living Self as an inseparable part of the whole, an integral and irreplaceable Member of the web of all beings, on Earth and beyond.

6. The Association will accept any person (irrespective of race, color, creed or religion) who is in accordance with the principles and policies as aligned with other Members. The Association will provide a medium through which its individual Members may associate for actuating and bringing to fruition the purposes herein declared.  


I understand that any fellow Member of the Association who may provide advice regarding health matters does so in the capacity of a fellow Member and not in any licensed capacity, specifically not as a doctor or therapist. 

I further understand that within the Association no doctor-patient nor any other licensed professional or similar legal relationship exists between the Members. This Agreement is between Members of the Association in private relationship. The Association is not subject to HIPAA compliance. However, in good faith, personal health information is considered sacred and protected with utmost concern for the privacy of each Member.

In confirmation, I have freely chosen to make my legal status in this Agreement - not as a public client – rather as a private Member of the Association. I further understand I am entirely responsible to consider the advice and recommendations offered to me by my fellow Members and to educate myself as to the efficacy, risk, and desirability of any recommendations. All choices are my own carefully considered decisions. 

Any request by me to a fellow Member to assist me or provide me with the aforementioned advice, etc., is my own free decision in an exercise of my rights and made by me for my benefit and I agree to hold any and each trustee, board member, steward, staff, co-Member and any associated agency, ministry or religious auxiliaries of the Association harmless from any unintentional liability from the results of such advice or recommendations.  

The Association has chosen David Telfer McConaghay and other persons to be named from time to time best qualified to provide advice and perform services for Members of the Association. I understand these Members provide holistic health support and hands-on healing and I entrust them to select other Members to assist them in carrying out this benefit to the Association Members.  

In addition, I understand that the Association is protected by the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, as such, it is outside the jurisdiction of Federal, State and local Governmental Agencies and Authorities.

Any and all complaints or grievances against the Association, any Trustees, board member, Stewards, Members, agencies, religious auxiliaries or other associated staff persons are covered by this Agreement. All rights to file complaints or grievances, including yet not limited to when in attendance or participation in any Association activity is now voluntarily waived by the Member with the intention to be settled by an independent mediator. I understand all Members voluntarily waive all legal actions and rights to file a statutory complaint against the Association.

Any health and legal records kept by the Association will be strictly protected and only released to parties identified in such records upon written request of the Member. 

Members agree not to disclose to any non-member the practices or procedures of the Association and agree not to compete in any way with the practices and procedures of the Association. I agree that violation of any terms in this membership contract will result in loss of membership and any resulting harm will be addressed in private binding mediation. Any complaint filed by a Member or assigns for legal remedy will be dismissed or remanded for binding mediation according to the terms of this Agreement.  

I agree to join the Association, a private membership association under common law, whose Members seek to help each other achieve mutual benefits to live a high vibrational quality of life.  

I understand that any doctors, therapists or other licensed providers who are fellow Members of the Association may offer me advice, services and benefits that may not necessarily conform to conventional licensed medical practices. I recognize and accept that the concepts discussed and taught in the Association are not “public” or “licensed” practices. If I desire such licensed professional advice, I will seek such information or specialist assistance elsewhere. I fully agree that the benefits I receive from the Association are private.  

As a Member, I accept the goal of doing my part to live in peace with all beings and I understand the techniques and strategies discussed within the Association strive to meet this objective. I also acknowledge that no agreement or recommendation is foolproof. I fully accept the risk that I might suffer adverse consequences from my choice to enter into a private agreement as recommended by the Association or its Members. I will not adopt any health regimen, consent to any treatment or agree to any activity until I thoroughly understand any such procedure and consent to the suggested process.  

My activities within the Association are protected by this private contract and precludes me from sharing any information with any court or state bar, or any non-Association agency. All records and documents remain as property of the Association, even if I receive a copy of them. I fully agree not to file a medical malpractice lawsuit against a fellow Member of the Association, unless that Member has exposed me to a clear and present danger of substantive evil, as expressed by the U.S. Supreme Court. 

I enter into this Agreement of my own free will without any pressure or promise of results. I affirm that I do not represent any state or federal agency whose purpose is to regulate the practice of medicine or healthcare. I have read and understood this document, and any questions I considered have been answered fully to my satisfaction. I understand that I can withdraw from the Association and terminate my membership in this Association at any time, yet agree to abide by these terms for a period of twenty [20] years thereafter. These pages and Article I of the articles of the Association consist of the entire Agreement for my membership in the Association and they supersede any previous agreement.  

I understand that this Agreement is a living document and may be edited for style or substance according to the wisdom of the Trustees, in the best interest of the Association and its beneficiaries. As a member, I am entitled to notification of any substantial changes and perpetual access to the most up-to-date draft of this document.

I understand that as a Seeker I am entitled to receive those benefits declared by the Trustee(s) to be “general benefits” free of further charge. I agree I may be asked to offer “special assessments” levied for any additional benefits that I may be offered by the Association.  

I agree to abide by the terms of this agreement and enthusiastically aspire to embody the true spirit of Āyur Vidya Academy as consideration for my lifetime membership beginning with the date of the signing of this Agreement. I acknowledge that clicking on the “agree button” has the same full effect by law as formally placing my signature on this document, as is common practice in this internet era.  

Thus, I hereby certify, attest and warrant that I, being age of consent with sound mind and body have carefully read and understood the plain language of the above and foregoing Āyur Vidya Academy Membership Association Agreement and voluntarily accept the terms herein. I fully understand and agree with the terms and hereby intend these terms and this Agreement to bind myself, my family, heirs, nominees, agents and assigns in confidentiality for a minimum of 20 years.
