ACCOMMODATIONS & TRANSPORTATION


 

Higher Brain Living® Institute
1743 West Division Street
2nd Floor
Chicago, IL 60622

Because this is located in Chicago, parking is scarce. The easiest thing to do would be to hire an Uber/Lyft/Taxi driver. If you decide to drive, you can use Spot Hero once you get to the area to find parking areas. You can also take the train (Blue Line exit at Division St – walk 4 blocks west to center).

To find lodging, please search the area using zip code 60622. You can search for hotels, or use AirBnB or VRBO.

If you are looking for a roommate, please find one in the Facilitator-in-Training Facebook Community located here.

DRESS CODE


Mixed group business people in office

Wear comfortable, casual attire. Dress so you can go from classroom lecture to practicing the technique to retreat all in one day. Be prepared to go from chilly to warm. Bring 2-3 sets of yoga/workout type clothes for your retreat days. You will have the option to do yoga on several of the days as well.

WHAT TO BRING


  • Remember to bring your Guidebook. If you forget it, we will have Guidebooks there for you to purchase for $199.
  • The Institute implements a “no shoe” policy. Feel free to bring slippers or extra socks to be more comfortable.
  • Bring layers and comfortable clothes! Your body temperature will ebb and flow as you work. Retreat days are on the agenda, so keep that in mind as you pack.
  • Bring snacks, a refillable water bottle, a pencil/pen and notebook.
