Infinity is the only foundation in our area that provides the type of programs that Infinity offers. Our lives are a journey of growth and Infinity provides means to continue that growth. Infinity offers classes that work on feeding the Soul. I have taken classes from the mundane to the not so mundane and I appreciate it beyond belief that there is an organization like Infinty in my area.

It has been of much benefit to me knowing that there are others around who care to further their growth and development in areas that are not of the norm. It is also a huge benefit having the individuals who care to share their knowledge and wisdom.

The Infinity Foundation is based in spiritual awareness and the mind-body connection. It is a wonderful place, full of great energy, great people, and I cherish the time I have spent there! The classes are taught by dedicated professionals who truly want to share their experience and expertise and help move you "to the next level". Whether that be in meditation, yoga, etc. I look forward to the time that I spend there, as does everyone I know. A totally worthwhile place to be!

I have been helping Infinity since I was in high school when I wrote their data base to use to track registrations. After college, I became their web master and continue in that position. I also do the layout for the course guide and their display ads. The sophistication and care of presenting Infinity to the public eye is thoughtful and considerations are always made in how to promote a positive image of the organization. It's intent is to communicate clearly and positively. The courses they offer are cutting-edge and classes you won't find anywhere else in the area. The variety and breadth of the course offerings is astonishing. There is something for everyone.

I am the psychiatric consultant for Infinity. I offer my professional expertise on an as need basis to offer support to any individual who may be having difficulty. Infinity leadership has integrity and care for all of the people who take classes at its center. The well-being and positive experience people have is a result of offering supportive classes for people to take where they can tap into their inner resource, and human potential to make changes that will in fact change their lives.

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 been associated with Infinity for over thirteen years, first as a volunteer and now as president of the board of directors . Over the years I have attend many classes and quite a few of the retreats. I can tell you with complete earnestness that I have gained so much personnel insight into my own growth as a person seeking to understand how I fit into such a complex world. This has been achieved through many of Infinty's meditation classes, intuitive classes, and just being in many classes with other paticipents, sharing in their growth and understanding and being part of a collected conscessness.
We need Infintiy and can't begin to be grateful enough for the good fortune to have found such an outstanding faucility right here in the midwest.

Infinity Foundation has scheduled classes by some of the people I have most wanted to see in person, such as Gary Zukav and Dr. Darren Weissman. For a reasonable fee, I can study techniques that enable me to maximize my connections to the worlds of health, spirituality, and personal growth. Each opportunity to attend a class or workshop has resulted in a new fork in my personal development path, and I would not have reached this point of personal awareness with having Infinity Foundation so near to my home.

The classroom at Infinity, and the other partner locations, have all been well-suited to quiet exploration, communal work, and a relaxed mental focus.

Because of these experiences, I am now deepening my own skills as a practitioner of animal communication and seeking to expand other areas of development.

Infinity Foundation provides a variety of classes in alternative medicine and metaphysical topics. There is nothing else in Illinois like this. I would have to travel to New York or California to obtain the same course offerings. This is the Omega of the Midwest! I am so fortunate to have found it. Attending classes here has made a positive impact on my health.

I attended a class in 2010 on animal communication. It was a fabulous two day workshop where I learned how to understand my pets better. Now, I know when they want to go outside, when they want to eat, and can understand their health much better. I would take this class again.

After attending a class at Infinity about 5 years ago, I became active on the Infinity Foundation Benefit Committee. I enjoy helping out when I am able to because I believe Infinity Foundation is a wonderful place with a variety of quality classes for people to experience. I live quite a distance from Infinity and this limits my participation somewhat, but I always enjoy and benefit from the classes that I do attend. I am very impressed with the various classes and appreciate that they are quite affordable. Needless to say, I am very impressed with the Infinity Foundation!

I am a licensed health care professional. I have been to many of Infinity Foundation's programs in order to gain additional certifications and training. Infinity has top notch instructors and great opportunities for personal growth and development. The classes are interesting and varied. I would like it if Infinity had the funds to move to a larger location with more classrooms.

I am grateful and happy that I can help at the Infinity Foundation office registering people for classes in the database. For many years now it has enriched my life beyond anything I could have dreamed of.

Not only can I give back to the community but I have found a new family. A place with a big heart where I can meet likeminded or like searching people, a place that offers classes with the highest standard of education in holistic healing, inner development and spirituality. It also helps me with my private practice of LaHoChi Energy Healing which includes John of God's Crystal Light Therapy and coaching the "Law of Attraction".

I am a very happy camper at Infinity and hope that I will always be able to be there, to support the foundation with its goal of helping people succeed in life on all levels; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

I thank all of you volunteers; the foundation is running only because of each and one of you. I cannot imagine a life without you all.

Infinity, I thank you that you exist!

I attended the animal communication workshop by Penelope Smith with my son. Overall the workshop was great. The only thing that I would have liked to be different would be, I wish we had been able to get more one on one feedback.

This organization offers wonderful programs from talented authors, spiritual teachers, etc., and is a huge resource in a place where there aren't many.

It makes me happy to see their mailings, classes, and offerings, and to know that Infinity is there, serving the community.

I live in Chicago, am watching my budget, and don't get up to Infinity. I wish we had something in the city, and not just in the rich suburbs.

Thanks

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.

My first visit to an Infinity Foundation course was with Robert Ohotto and John Holland. I recieved valuable insights as to how they connect with their energies and how they were able to help the people in the audience come to peace with their loved ones that crossed over was a wonderful experience.

Robert Ohotta gave very good reasons for why we sometimes make the choices we do, so we can be aware of them and make better choices for ourselves.

I left the classes feeling very much enlighted, at peace and I am looking forward to my next class!

I have been volunteering for the Infinity Foundation for the past 5 years. I began as a Benefit committee member and after 2 years became the Chairwoman for the annual benefit. I love what Infinity stands for and the classes that are offered provide an invaluable service to the community. Along with being a volunteer, I have taken several classes and workshop and always found them valuable. One of the things I appreciate about Infinity is that each year I can see them striving to grow, to offer new and different classes and workshops and I appreciate that they are responsive to the needs of the community.

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.

Having attended and/or worked on many of the activities of Infinity I can say without a doubt that it is an unique organization. It is making a difference in the world in what I think is the only way that true change comes about - one person at a time. At the same time it is an epicenter where people of like mind can come together and form a community whose goal is to be of service to others.

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.

On my journey of peronsal transformation, it is wonderful to know that Infinity Foundation exists. It offers me classes that expand my view of myself, the world and of life in so many ways. I enjoy meeting people there who are of like mind. And, the Annual Benefit is the BEST!

Infinity has quality classes which often include NY Times best-selling authors, at affordable prices.

This is a place that feels like the Omega Institute of Chicagoland and for that I am grateful.

Infinity Foundation is a strong and vibrant collection of practitioners from a vast array of holistic mind-body practices. I have learned and been exposed to so much through my 5-year relationship with this organization, both as a client and now as a client and practitioner. The opportunity to learn from and with people from all walks -- ranging from "average" individuals trying to find the practices that best support them and put them into use in their daily lives to internationally renowned leaders in their fields -- is a tremendous gift. And Infinity provides this gift consistently, creatively and powerfully. In my particular experiences, learning and practicing Eden Energy Medicine with Devi Stern and being nurtured on my own energetic and creative path by Sandra Ann Taylor and Allegra Huston have been particularly powerful.

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.

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 began attending workshops at Infinity Foundation the year it was founded. Since then I have enjoyed a number of educational/experiential events I would otherwise never have been exposed to.

Infinity offers a broad range of workshops and classes, constantly seeks the new and interesting and makes it easy to sign up for and attend all their events with their excellent website and pro-active communications.

I use Infinity's website as a one stop shop to explore ideas I didn't even know existed. On multiple occasions I have taken chances on a workshop that looked intriguing and in every case I have been delighted with my experience.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
