Financial Support

Our mission is to make all of our programs accessible. Every fee-based offering has a limited number of pay-what-you-can spots available to support members of marginalized groups (people of color, queer people, people with disabilities) and those in financial need (those for whom the cost to attend is not financially possible). 

These spots are offered on a first come, first served basis. Please pay at the highest level you can afford. In order for this support to be available, we rely on those who can afford to pay the full price to do so.

Find out if spots are available by clicking REGISTER NOW on the event you are interested in.

In the event that these spots have been claimed and you’re interested in attending please email support@insightLA.org to be added to the financial support waitlist.

For payment plan requests, please email support@insightla.org.

Safety 

We work 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.

Cancellation & Refunds

We reserve 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.

Refund and Event Policies

The end result of birth is death. We all know this, but how often do we deny that our time will come? What would it look like if we were to embrace this precious life while acknowledging the impermanence of it all?

On his deathbed, Socrates exhorted his followers to practice dying as the highest form of wisdom. Preparing for our death can be one of the most rational and rewarding acts of a lifetime. It is an exercise that gives us the opportunity to deal with unfinished business and enter into a new and vibrant relationship with life. This will be a year of forgiveness, gratitude, letting go and letting be with love and kindness.

Our Year to Live group will meet monthly and participants will be guided in practical strategies, powerful guided meditations, group discussions, optional field trips, one-on-one meetings with Amy and Valerie and heart-opening practices to help with this work, so that whenever the ultimate moment does arrive for each of us, we will not feel that it has come too soon.

The book A Year to Live by Stephen Levine will be our guide. No prior meditation experience necessary. We welcome anyone who has the desire to begin this important journey with us.

Students must register for the entire program in order to participate.

The class will meet every 3rd Sunday of the month from 1pm – 3:30pm.  Here are specific dates:

  • Sept 15
