Client served, volunteer, and professional with expertise in this field, also!! Infinity is a heartfelt place of learning and nurturing. Everyone is of the Light, and you feel cared about and loved in everything you do with them. Yay!

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

Classes. The instructors are authentic and committed to Healing. As a volunteer, I was impressed with what a small group of people can accomplish. Soon I will be teaching there, and I have been impressed with the paperwork that is required. It makes the instructors set very clear intentions and be organized and professional. Quality control is vital. Really well run, caring organization.

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

More volunteers!!

Infinity foundation is a wonderful place. There are so many healers and speakers who come to share their gifts with the world, and Infinity provides the doors through which their magnificence shines. It's a light in the world and truly a sancturary of loving respite.

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

via participation in speaker/healer events.

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

make it known to more people; open it up a bit more.

I moved to the Chicago area seven years ago, and expected to feel deprived after a rich twenty year cultural experience in California. I found the Infinity Foundation soon after arriving, and have been involved ever since - as a student, a teacher, and a volunteer. I am so very grateful for the existence of this lone resource, always there with free and reasonably priced enrichment opportunities for personal growth, social welfare and alternative health options. I have been impressed with the quality of the programs and the extraordinary guest lecturers that Infinity has brought to Chicago. The effort that goes into this virtually all-volunteer organization is enormous, from programming to marketing to fund-raising. I stand in amazement and deep gratitude for the Infinity Foundation and its committed corps of volunteers.

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

I had studied with numerous notable teachers in areas related to my field (psychology), all of which were valuable, enhancing my skill set professionally and personally. I have been able to refer many clients and associates to Infinity over the past seven years, and we have all been grateful for the additional support these programs provide individuals who need to connect with others in an emotionally safe environment, and who need resources like Infinity offers. There is virtually nothing else like it.

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

I would have more people know about its rich offerings so that more people could take advantage of the programs! If at all possible, I would like to see Infinity have a larger facility so that it could accommodate a larger population of clients.

I was in the Chicago area to give some lectures to eyecare professionals and discovered the Infinity Center. My area of expertise is holistic and nutritional support for eye health.

My talk was very well received and when walking through the center, I sensed a feeling of calm and peace throughout the facility. The attendees seemed very grateful for the information I had to offer and they got all of their questions answered.

This center serves a great purpose in the area and I hope that they can continue to do so.

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

The lecture that I offered there. See the above comments.

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

Get them proper meeting rooms and more money to promote their agendas.

Infinity Foundation provides quality programming in the areas of health, wellness, consciousness, and much more. They are an invaluable resource to the entire Chicagoland area. In is common for people to travel many miles to attend the excellent programs made available at the Infinity Foundation. They provide "good news", great awareness, kindness, heart-centered service, and huge sincerity. Infinity Foundation is an oasis, an incalcuably significant contribution to the landscape in the conscious creation of our new world.

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

my understanding and application of a variety of spiritual and health practices

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

suggest that there were more locations!

The Infinity foundation consistently presents intelligent and discerning programs designed to broaden our mental and physical experience of the world. I am in awe of their programs - which have changed my life (very much for the better). From their ability to present cutting-edge authors, thinkers, and visionaries - to there remarkable and healing musical programs they far exceed other such organizations.
The foundation is well managed and easy to work with however the physical location needs to be expanded. Their current space, although lovely, is much to small to accommodate the interest stimulated to their programs.

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

within their many programs

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

as stated above - a larger space is would be most welcome.

Infinity Foundation is doing great work serving the community by offering a broad array of seminars, lectures, and a platform for those that are seeking to grow in a spiritually based community. The board and volunteers are simply fantastic and so accommodating to the practitioner and work to ensure a great experience by all. They offer a grounded and sophisticated approach appealing to people of all walks.

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

their day to day organization and the Annual Benefit

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

help them acquire a larger facility that has a coffee house and book store as well as rooms for groups and one on one.

I am am an Advanced Nurse Practioner in Psychiatry and an Energy Healing Practitioner. My husband and I have taught seminars at Infinity to teach others how to use advanced energy exercises, meditation and ceremony to restore their bodies and advance their consciousness. The Infinity Foundation invited us to teach and their strong following in the community gave us a chance to share our advanced knowledge to serve the needs of the Infinity Community. We were greeted warmly by the staff. The environment and atmosphere were fantastic for the work we were teaching.

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

The clients who participated in the first seminar came to the second seminar also. They appreciated the depth of teaching we offered and were ready for more. Many of the clients mentioned that they depended on the Infinity Foundation for the courses they offered.

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

Get additional building space so they could expand.

Nancy Marder has done a fabulous job bringing local talent and bigger name presenters to a small but vital center in Highland Park, IL, The Infinity Foundation. The classes which cover everything from new thought to holistic health to family integrity to spiritual pursuits are rich, well received and serving to the evolution of consciousness on this planet. She also creates an outlet for local teachers to share their gifts on a platform that is affordable. I have witnessed Nancy's dedication and commitment to this endeavor for more than a decade. That alone is inspirational and worthy of acknowledgment.

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

1. being able to teach classes at Infinity 2. attending some events and meeting mentors, increasing my own skill sets and community 3. seeing clients regularly in the practitioner room that is available to rent.

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

get more of the Chicago area to be aware of this somewhat hidden gem.

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.
