The Innerwork Center Adopts New Sliding Scale Pricing Model

In 2018, The Innerwork Center created an Access Fund to address financial barriers that participants on strict budgets face in accessing the personal development programs they offer that inspire curiosity, cultivate mindfulness and awaken the spirit. Now The Innerwork Center has added a sliding-scale equity model to avoid turning anyone away. Based on their financial situation, program participants may choose to pay less than full price; full price; or more than full price when registering for programs, workshops or retreats.

Some people are living paycheck-to-paycheck, struggling to maintain health care, housing, food and childcare, while others are blessed with more prosperity and better able to pay it forward to help support the community. This new model creates a win-win situation where everyone can benefit.

The Innerwork Center is a 501c3 nonprofit organization offering award-winning keynotes, single and multi-session programs, retreats, donation-based drop-ins and other unique opportunities to do innerwork individually and collectively. Their program categories include Mindfulness, Creative Expression and Movement, Psychology and Consciousness and Wisdom Traditions and Spirituality.
