Corazón Love

happy clients

I discovered MEA while on the verge of burnout and in great need of personal and professional renewal. My experience was so transformational, that I’ve done three programs and am planning a fourth! The team creates magical and unique experiences that envelop you in love, support and wisdom. I wish everyone I knew could experience MEA.

Lisa Fitzpatrick
3 MEA cohorts in 2019-20

MEA is an oasis that refreshes me and replenishes my emotional supplies for the rest of my journey. I’m excited about Corazón. It will increase my connection to a community of vibrant, curious long-life learners. As a health coach, I teach that the people we associate with affect our physical and psychological health. The MEA community is good for my health and will extend the length and quality of my life.

My first workshop was in 2019, followed by a recent Sabbatical Session. MEA was the perfect place to land when transitioning to single life from a long marriage and again the right place to be during COVID as I ponder career choices. I've made incredible relationships and look forward to expanding them by being a Corazón member.

Lisa Carmel

happy clients

My MEA experience was a rite of passage. Modern culture has so few good examples of what it means to live life well. At age 71, I was looking for something better. At MEA, I met people who value and celebrate personal growth, wisdom, and living life fully. I now feel that I’m not alone on this journey; and that’s why I’m part of the MEA community.

happy clients

My experience at SabSesh has been life changing, so much so that I extended my initial two-week trip to four weeks then six weeks... I am thrilled to have the opportunity via the Corazón membership program to stay connected with the MEA community and expert teachings to continue the growth and transformation initially forged at Baja.

The most valuable gift I received from my time at MEA was a new mindset. And the best thing about a growth mindset powered by love, faith and intention is that it needs constant feeding. That’s why I treasure my continued connection to MEA leaders, programs and alums. Having a supportive community and learning tools along on my journey will help me cultivate greater self-acceptance, happiness and wisdom.

COVID-19 Response

Baja California Sur is one of the safest regions to visit in Mexico. And, we understand that in order to comfortably travel here, you need to feel confident in MEA’s health and safety protocols. Since we closed the Academy in March, we’ve thoughtfully redesigned our campus to support an open-air experience that will ensure a safe community — enjoying meals, conversations, optional educational programming, and other group activities.

Being wise in a time of need.

If I don’t join the Corazón Membership, will I still have access to my current benefits?

Yes! These Alumni perks are Free + Forever (we’ve added some great benefits as we’ve grown):

  • Virtual Mastery Hours
  • Culture & Community Conversations
  • Digital Town Halls
  • Alumni Friday News
  • Alumni Directory (available Spring 2021)
  • Local MEA Chapter in your area
A year is a big commitment, what will I miss if I can’t join right now?

The benefits outweigh the costs — in time and money. Corazón membership benefits rollout throughout the year, but we are holding a special Alumni only session of MEA Online for Corazón members in February. Join this exclusive version to connect with other alumni and take a deeper dive into your roadmap for navigating midlife transitions.
Transitions Groups begin in February and you and your Corazón Compadre can connect in March for goal setting and accountability support. You will always be an alum, but the added Corazón membership allows you to be in the center of MEA with our most active and involved alums.

What happens in the Transitions Support Groups?

We’ve all experienced the wisdom of gathering in smaller groups with a shared focus. Coming together with other alums who are facing similar life circumstances will be your chance to share and to serve, exchanging support and solutions for common changes and struggles. We’ll organize a variety of topical groups — from career changes to retirement planning to being a new empty nester to caring for elder parents and other life changes — so you can find the right one for you. MEA will facilitate the first meeting.

How can I use the $750 credit?

As part of your Corazón Membership, you’ll receive a $750 credit if you choose not to attend the MEA Online course, Designing MEAningful Transitions in an Uncertain World. While we encourage you to take this dynamic new course, you may apply your credit toward any of MEA’s Baja campus programs, either an intensive weeklong workshop (planned to resume October 2021), or Sabbatical Session (through September 2021).

 Are all Corazón member benefits available immediately?

Upon joining, you’ll receive the MEA Online course ticket (or $750 credit), Chip’s audiobook, and access to our Concierge Service. We’ll be rolling out membership components throughout 2021. Upon Signing Up, you’ll receive a package with the artisan gift, a copy of Radical Alignment, and two copies of The Land of Yet, and we’ll make your $100 donation. In February, you’ll begin the MEA Online course (if you enroll), and be able to join a Transitions Group if you choose. In March, you’ll be able to access the Corazón Compadre goal setting toolkit. In May, you can submit your business to the Professional Services Corner on our membership site. Our quarterly Founder’s events will happen in January, May, August, and November, 2021.

Does the payment installment plan charge interest? And can I cancel my membership anytime?

Like all of MEA’s offerings, your Corazón Membership is a self-investment in you. Becoming a Corazón member is a yearlong commitment. And we understand that 2020 has been a tough year. So, we offer a zero interest $50/month payment plan to make it easy and affordable for everyone.

If I don’t join now, will I have an opportunity to join later?

 Yes, join anytime! But don’t miss out on all the benefits being rolled out throughout the year!
