Insight in Action

I cannot thank enough InsightLA, Trudy, and the generosity of those who decided to pay it forward, for making that life-changing experience possible for me.

Our founder, Trudy Goodman, incorporated community outreach into InsightLA from its inception. She began by going to juvenile halls and children’s hospitals to freely share the benefits of a mindfulness practice. Trudy dedicated herself to relieving suffering wherever she went.

In the course of her work, she saw that suffering takes many forms. She began teaching mindfulness practices to minors in juvenile halls and patients in children’s hospitals, but quickly realized that social workers and healthcare workers were also suffering. Compassion fatigue presents a significant challenge across the nonprofit sector. We know that when caregivers, social workers, teachers, and volunteers feel supported and nourished, they are better able to do what they do best: assist those in society who are most in need.

With Insight in Action, we're offering mindfulness and compassion trainings to 20 non-profits serving our wider Los Angeles community.  Through this 100% donor-funded program individuals on the front lines of suffering will have access to these potentially life-changing meditation training programs.
