Challenges and crises are part of the human condition, for ourselves, for people we care about, for our communities and our larger world.  This daylong offers practical tools, informed by modern neuroscience, to strengthen our somatic, emotional, relational and reflective intelligences to deal with any disruption to our coping, from barely a wobble to genuine upset to being dumped completely out of our boat.  

Participants learn practices, including mindfulness, compassion, empathy, forgiveness, to shift the functioning of the brain out of contraction and reactivity to more receptivity, openness, the larger perspective, to reduce the impacts of stress and trauma, recover inner stability, and move into thriving and flourishing.


At InsightLA, we’re dedicated to creating a safe and welcome, open and equitable community that stands firmly against all racial, gender, economic, or religious bias.

InsightLA works to protect the safety of all students. We reserve the right to remove any student from any class, sitting group, retreat, or any event if the student is disruptive to the safe learning environment we maintain for all.

Financial support or work exchange opportunities may be available for this program. There is special funding allocated to People of Color (POC), Queer people, folks with serious medical conditions, and young adults (age 18-24). Funding is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Financial support is budgeted per class, retreat or event and because of high demand, can run out quickly. For more information, please contact: financialsupport@insightla.org

InsightLA reserves the right to cancel a class or special event due to low enrollment or other circumstances which would make the event non-viable. If InsightLA cancels an event you’ve registered for, you will be offered a full refund. If an event has to be postponed for any reason, you will have the option to either receive a full refund or transfer your registration to the same event at the new, future date.
