Experience Kinder Institute’s EVOKE Life Planning course at our founder’s Maui Island home. Located off the main road in Hana, George Kinder’s spacious home overlooks the ocean and is surrounded by green pastures. We use the main living and dining area as our classroom with indoor and outdoor breakout spaces. Meals are held on-site, and accommodations are hosted off-site in private residences. Meals are catered using quality local ingredients and you will be charged approximately $100/day for lunch and dinner, plus refreshments. 

Reasonably priced lodging in the area is scarce and registrants are responsible for booking their own accommodations at or near the venue.  Prices, along with the quality of the lodging, range from about $150 – $350 (or more) per night and often needs to be booked many months in advance.

Other Venues

We often select more traditional hotel or office conference room settings for some of our training courses, including The Seven Stages of Money Maturity® Training and Life Planning Mastery. These venues allow an easier flow of conversation and offer spaces for small group break-out sessions and one-on-one coaching.
