ABOUT INSIGHTLA

InsightLA is a meditation center teaching the highest quality mindfulness practices throughout the Greater Los Angeles area. For 16 years, we have offered classes, retreats, and special events in an open and welcoming community. Our work is rooted in ancient traditions, and we offer both secular and Buddhist classes. All of our efforts are dedicated toward our mission of calming minds, opening hearts, and changing the world.

We hold a firm policy that no one will be turned away for lack of funds. About 73% of our expenses are covered by revenue from classes, retreats, and special events. The remainder of our operating expenses are covered by the tax-deductible gifts from our generous donors. We rely on your gifts to be able to continue the life-changing work we do. Together, we can make the world a more compassionate place for all beings.

OUR NO ONE TURNED AWAY  FINANCIAL AID PROGRAM

Every day of the week, our doors are open to people who are suffering. Over 20% of our community relies on financial aid to attend our classes and retreats. Additionally, we have a significant number of offerings that are donation-based, and these classes are open to anyone. No one is turned away for lack of funds. 

 

Recognizing that Los Angeles is a diverse community, we are deeply committed to equity and inclusivity in all we do. Insight in Action allows us not only to sustain our commitment to accessibility, but to meet the ever-increasing need for our services regardless of socio-economic level or demographic.
