Established in 1994, Insight Awareness is dedicated to providing alternative approaches for your inner and outer well-being.

Located in the charming downtown business district of Homewood, IL, a southern suburb of Chicago, we are easily accessible from the cities major thoroughfares and only two blocks from the Metra train station.  Our location makes it easy to attend the wide variety of courses, events,  and wellness services offered.

Grab a cup of tea and peruse our ever evolving website.  You’ll find photos of our travels, events, and everyday offerings that have helped thousands of people shift to a more positive state of mind and well-being.  Though you won’t be able to fully feel the energy or smell the relaxing aromas that bring an instant sense of relief to all those who enter, perhaps you’ll get a hint of why so many people call Insight Awareness “home”.

“I was so excited to go for a visit.  It was like my soul being home again.” ~ Lisa Banks
