If I live nearby, do I need to pay a commuter fee?
If you live nearby, and the Full Residence experience is not possible, we do have a Commuter option, and we do charge a commuter fee, which includes lunch, dinner, snacks, & facilities fee. To support the residential nature of our trainings you will be able to enjoy meals together with your new OI friends and OI staff. The conversations, getting to know one another on a human level is very healing in itself — and is part of the OI retreat experience our students come to cherish.
One of the core elements of the HEARTraining, and its inherent success, is the residential retreat setting. Based on Steve’s direct experience with teaching thousands of students around the world, this is where the magic happens.
The power of the residential setting is that it creates a unique life experience, of special value to both students and mentors. It has added so much to the learning process, and contributed so significantly to the development of the students, that we’re humbled by it.
We wish this experience for everyone.
