I have been attending workshops at Infinity Foundation for 7 years. It holds a sacred space for many in our community. The course offerings are enlightening and offer a range of topics in self-growth and spiritual connection work. The classes or workshops often are experiential as opposed to academic and that is what always appealed to me about Infinity. As a holistic practitioner and member of Infinity, I have also been given several opportunities to grow my practice and teach workshops.
They have a benefit each year in which they give a spirit recipient award to an author they have chosen who has done outstanding work in the field, which is always a wonderful event. At this benefit we sing Happy Birthday to Infinity as it is close to our hearts. from my heart, Rosemary Hurwitz

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

in the consistent and professional, and thorough learning environment. And, in the feeling of community with like-minded individuals

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

it is a homey and simple but lovely environment; the only change I would make is to support more growth and a larger space, as that unfolds.

Whole life, whole living. Infinity Foundation brings opportunites for me to live more fully in the moment. It seems that just when I need something in my life it is manifested in a program that Infinity delivers - just when I need it. It introduced me to the healing and meditative power of the gong bath. I've become a better golfer by learning how to be present on the golf course. I've become a better writer and networked with Allegra Huston. The opportunity to spend hours with Byron Katie taught me how to discover for myself, "the end of suffering." A course in the New Earth brought the teachings of Eckhart Tolle to life in my life. Infinity Foundation has touched my life and helped me become more conscious, more authentic and live more fully in the moment.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Personal growth and development, mediation, conscious living, personal choices, holistic development, coaching

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Infinity's resources are limited and facility upgrades would make it more attractive and allow more people to benefit from its offerings.

Over the past few years I have had the pleasure of attending several workshop events which featured world-renowned bestselling authors through the Infinity Foundation.

Each time I have found the events to be exceptionally well-handled, enlightening, educational and inspiring! In fact, I enjoyed the first event so much that I offered my ongoing services as a social networking volunteer in order to help spread the word about the wonderful events that Infinity has to offer. I regularly recommend Infinity to my like-minded friends and family as a great resource for honoring the mind-body-spirit connection.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I'd like to see more weekend retreats featuring bestselling authors in the coming years.

I have been involved with Infinity Foundation since I attended Jon Kabat-Zinn's wonderful Mother's Day workshop in 2005. Working for and being involved with Infinity is an important part of my life - Infinify is one of my major sanghas. I've seen so many gifted authors and teachers, including Lama Surya Das, Sharon Salzberg, Dannion Brinkley, and Byron Katie. Infinity is the only spiritual education center in this part of Illinois and I'm so grateful for it and for the wonderful people I work with there. Nancy Marder's ability to walk her talk and work fearlessly towards her vision continues to inspire me.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

During he past 4 years that I've volunteered at Infinity, thru its classes and contact with its staff, I've gone through some deep personal challenges. Today my life is on a stronger path because of Infinity with a deepened relationship with my husband, son & extended family members. I continue to be committed to self-responsibility, working to deepen compassion for self & others, and the wish to increasingly become an exemplar of hope.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I share Nancy Marder's wish that Infinity will grow to become a full-time center where the community can meet and share on a regular basis.

The Infinity Foundation is a wonderful non-profit nonsectarian educational organization organization dedicated to assisting in the evolvement of human expression through its offerings of classes, workshops, retreats, conferences, and services. I attended a wonderful workshop on Sunday in which I learned about the art of Chinese Face Reading. The Center is so warm and friendly and the people running the registration were so helpful. The workshop went beyond my expectations. I love the room and the fact that there is hot tea available. Great place, great workshop, and great foundation.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own personal life. Learning how to relax and build my own spiritual practice.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
