Ready for some virtual fun?

Bring life (and more attendees) to your association or group meeting, improve internal bonding, increase awareness. This is similar to the full Experiential Meal from the Certified Living In Place Professional and Living In Place Associate classes. This is a live interactive virtual event where we lead participants through simulating hand and vision challenges, then they prepare a meal or enjoy some snacks and beverages. Notice how much trouble she is having just opening up a bottle of water.

Contact us to arrange your own Experiential Meal Event info@LivingInPlace.Institute

"I just wanted to thank you for such an amazing job last night.  The things that we sometimes don’t even bother to give an afterthought to, are the same things that are absolutely essential to the quality of life.  The exercises brought a new awareness to what many are experiencing every day." Karina, Product Showroom Manager

"Thank you for a great event last night.  I have heard SUCH positive feedback from attendees about the lively and interactive format.  People are looking for engagement, and you certainly provided it last night! Julie, Interior Designer, New York
