We hope to SEE YOU at Lake Tahoe


Registration starts with a conversation. ELIA facilitators and alumni would be happy to talk with you.

STEP 2: Express Interest

If you are mostly or completely sure, email us a brief statement about yourself and your desired objectives for participating in ELIA. Once we have received your statement, we will schedule a conversation with Mitch or Maryliz. These conversations are as brief/detailed as you need and scheduled at your convenience so that we can do the following:

  • address any questions you still have

  • ensure a mutual fit

  • help set realistic expectations so your entry and our shared experience is as smooth as possible

  • 3 five-day immersive gatherings with full-day sessions

  • All materials, meeting venue, and private online hub for collaboration & information sharing

    • Single & double occupancy options available



Option 1: Pay in full upon registration.

Option 2: Pay in installments:

  • $4200 upon registration ($3570 with early-bird discount)

  • $2100 due by January 4, 2019 ($1785 with early-bird discount)

$250 is non-refundable. If you cancel after January 4, 2019, we will be unable to offer a refund of any amount.  Because there is no margin in the cost structure for this program, and we have a very small group, you will need to make a financial commitment for the entire year. We aspire to offer an experience with a value that far exceeds its cost, that will benefit you personally, and that will lead to positive ripple effects sorely needed in our world today.
