Fees for each summit:

$2900 per summit, OR $2500 each if attending three summits ($7500 for the certificate series, with the bonus Summit of Building Individual and Organizational Wellbeing and Resilience). Summits can be attended one at a time, or as part of a certificate (minimum of three attended). Additional fee for the Intensive Permanency Services Supervision (two 1/2 days) is $800 and does not count as one of the three Summits needed to fulfill the Healing Practices Certificate.

Fine print:

Meals are mostly included: breakfast is included in Alia’s preferred hotel partner’s stay, lunches provided, and one group dinner on Day 1 is provided. Essentially, most food is included in your fee, except meals while traveling and one dinner which is on your own for Day 2. A $350 late fee will be charged, if registering within 30 days of Summit. Cancellations prior to 30 days before events will be refunded at 75%, and refunds of 50% will be issued within 30 days of Summits. All travel costs and arrangements are the responsibility of the attendees. All Summits are held at the Alia Innovation Hub (1000 University Ave W, Suite 230, St. Paul, MN 55104). Creative billing and payments for Summit fees are available such as payment in installments, over two fiscal years, to include travel, or whatever special arrangements must be made to accommodate budgetary constraints or goofy rules you may have to follow to attend. Certificates are issued, but CEU/CE’s with educational and licensing boards are not filed; however, upon request, Alia will provide you any necessary paperwork (e.g., faculty credentials, learning objectives, course descriptions, etc.) for you to seek CEU/CE approvals from your specific licensing body. Special requests: we will radically ensure special requests for food, private space (for prayer, regulation, lactation, etc.), or anything else you might need to feel as welcome as possible, are met. Optional preparation work (i.e articles, videos) will provide opportunities for enhanced learning.
