Answers to some of your common questions.

You can call our office at 503-913-6288 or register using our online registration page.

Your sponsor is the person who told you about Foundations.

The cost includes the cost of the seminar only. You are responsible for meals and lodging. If you choose to stay at the hotel, we have negotiated a group rate for you. You may also choose to stay at a nearby hotel or stay at home or with family or friends. You may eat at the hotel; you will be given sufficient time to eat nearby if you choose. Please note that the hotel does not allow outside meals to be brought into the hotel. However, you are encouraged to bring snacks to eat during breaks.

The seminar is a two part workshop over two extended weekends (Friday morning through Sunday evening). The seminar is interactive, consisting of large group talks and experiential exercises, small-group and one-on-one discussions, and work that you will do alone. More information about the content of the seminar can be found on our web site.

We do not have discount rates for groups. Foundations is a non-profit organization. As such our prices are significantly lower than any other comparable seminars that we have found.

Most of the time you will not be listening to speakers, as this is definitely an "audience participation" event! That said, our facilitators and support staff are professionally trained and have conducted hundreds of seminars for thousands of individuals. Although our organization was founded in 2004, many of our facilitators have been in this role for previous, similar programs. Our facilitators also have certification, training, advanced degrees, and/or experience in personal coaching, positive psychology, conflict mediation, and personality types. You can read selected biographies on our web site.

The cost is $495.00 per seminar. If you register for both seminars at the same time the cost is $950.00. We can offer the program at a fraction of the cost of competing programs because we are a not-for-profit organization and use professionally trained large group facilitators in conjunction with many volunteer small group facilitators and support people.

Not at the present time. If you have 20 plus people who would like to attend a Foundations workshop in your area please contact the office.

This is an investment in your future. Everything we have for the most part requires maintenance. You change the oil in your car, get new tires, service your heating and air etc. We believe Foundations is maintenance for you. The real question here is: "How can you not afford to attend?"

Anyone who wants to achieve more balanced fulfilling lives

We take 15 minute breaks about every two hours and meal times are one and one half hours.

You may request a full refund up until two days before the day of the seminar by contacting the office. You may also request a full refund at the end of the seminar on Sunday if you feel you have not received value from the seminar (again, you must request the refund before you leave the seminar). Otherwise, there are no refunds.

If for some reason you need to cancel please call the office as soon as possible.

We work with the hotel to provide competitive group rates to you. However, you will need to reserve your room via phone or the email link below. This link is provided as a service to you. Foundations does not pay for the room or have any information regarding your lodging.

We don't think you need to be fixed either! Our seminars are for individuals who want more success in life and are interested about learning new, simple tools to help find that success.

Layers are always best. Everyone needs to be comfortable, so make sure that whatever you wear you are comfortable. The temperature in the training rooms can fluctuate, so bring a light jacket even in the summer.

Absolutely! We will also suggest books for you to read. What we provide is an interactive, experiential environment where you can learn how to use the ideas we present to you in every life situation.

Stress, working all the time, and taking care of everyone else is a prescription for health issues. For you to take three full days for You is not a long commitment. You will learn ways to create a more fulfilling life instead of a life full of "Things you have to do"!

We start Friday morning at 10:00 a.m. and end at 9:00 pm. Saturday runs from 10:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. Sunday runs from 9:00 am until 6:30 pm.

We encourage you to register at least two weeks prior to the seminar. We take registration on a space-available basis until the day before the training, so give us a call to see if we can accommodate you.
