COST OF THE PROGRAM
At Inner Fire, we believe healing is a right and therefore should not be a privilege. We make every effort to keep costs low without compromising the integrity of the program which aims at deep healing. Our wish is that no one is barred from engaging in their healing process because of finances alone. However, due to financial constraints, we are currently more limited in our ability to realize these ideals than we would like to be.
Effective November 4, 2020:
- Months 1-3 – $24,000 each – Total $72,000
- Months 4-6 – $18,000 each – Total $54,000
- Months 7-9 – $12,000 each – Total $36,000

Yearly total $192,000
Deep healing and safe tapering takes time and though we encourage individuals to honor the process of deep healing by allowing a year, it is clear that, for some people, they may need more or less time engaging with the program and working with the issues which naturally arise. We aim to meet people where they are, and at the same time, we want to eliminate the stress of the ‘the rush’. Appreciating that simply being a human being is challenging and that we are always learning throughout life as we meet the various challenges which life offers us, ideally, no further programs will be necessary after the foundation of substantial inner work is laid.
After the interviewing process and upon acceptance, a non-refundable deposit is made which holds the individual’s place. This will also cover the agreed upon final month. Upon beginning the program, payment for the first month is due. Payments can be made monthly.

We are in dialogue with the Vermont Department of Mental Health and state politicians as it is our wish to be used as a pilot project and to receive state sponsorship for five seekers a year for five years, at less than half the cost of what the state pays. As striving individuals come off their meds, heal and reclaim their lives, the potential long-term savings for the state and insurance companies are immense. One day the financial wisdom in supporting preventative care and deep healing will hopefully be recognized. Until then we must rely on helping those in financial need through the limited private funding of our Support a Seeker Fund. We also encourage applicants to explore possible support from family, friends, and your community.
