The friends of Elke and Jim are uniting to help the family offset daily living expenses. All support is a blessing.

Many of you know Elke Siller Macartney as a teacher and some are privileged to know her as a friend. If you are here, it is likely you have been changed by her profound love, incredible insight, and great wisdom.

We have an opportunity to be of service to her and to her family. Jim, her dear husband, has suffered a heart-attack and stroke. While we continue to hold the family in the light, we invite those who can to help us seed the path to healing with a small measure of peace.

We know that Elke will need to clear her calendar of many appointments for the next few weeks, to focus on Jim's healing and to take care of herself. We seek to raise $5000 to help them offset living expenses during this initial crisis period.

You can make a donation here online at or you may drop off cash or a check (all checks must be made payable to this EXACT account name) locally at:

Jim Macartney Benefit Account
Peoples Bank (you can drop checks/cash at any People's branch)
Or mail to:
3100 Woburn St.
Bellingham, WA 98226
Attention: Retailer

This is not a gift that Elke requested, but she is grateful for the help; it is simply what seemed practical to those of us organizing this effort. Please note this is not a tax-deductible gift.

We suspect that this may be a long journey and we may come back with a request to help support medical expenses. Thank you for your support. A local contact for questions is Shakti Chionis (

Blessed be,

Shakti and June
