This Giving Tuesday Help Grow Our Insight In Action Program

 

This GIVING TUESDAY, we invite you to help us grow our Insight In Action Program. Put your COMPASSION into ACTION by giving the gift of mindfulness this year

DONATE TODAY and a generous InsightLA donor will match all donations up to $25K.

One of the core principals of InsightLA is compassion, and by its very definition, compassion is not just an emotion it is accompanied by a strong desire to take action and help those who are suffering.
 
By offering mindfulness practices to people affected by homelessness, poverty, illness, as well as caregivers and first responders, we have learned that meditation can provide profound healing and refuge to those directly affected. 
 
INSIGHT IN ACTION is comprised of three main components: 

  • We provide financial assistance for fee-based programs based on need.
  • We also offer financial support for fee-based meditation programs solely to People of Color
  • Our community outreach program partners with 18 non-profit organizations in the Greater LA area bringing meditation and mindfulness training to vulnerable populations, individuals and organizations working on the front lines. 

In 2019, through our INSIGHT IN ACTION program, we aim to: 

  • Offer training and retreats to hospice workers, nurses, and carers support our first responders, 
  • Teach self-compassion and pain management to those suffering from illness
  • And to offer mindful writing classes to youths in detention, veterans, and homeless individuals
  • We also wish to partner with at least five new organizations serving vulnerable populations. Insight in action offers free programming, and we need your help 

Your support makes a huge difference. Please help us by visiting our website and donating. You can support people from diverse communities, backgrounds, and experiences. 
Let’s make sure that nobody is left out.

Thank you!
