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.

Event Policies

Join us each month for an afternoon community sit along with a talk on a Buddhist book. Librarian and Dharma teacher Eileen Ybarra will lead a 30 minute guided meditation and offer a talk on a dharma based book.

Each month will highlight a new book, including both fiction and non-fiction Buddhist literature.  Those who have read the book are welcome to share their own experiences and those who have not yet read the book will hopefully get a better sense of what it has to offer.

This is not a formal study group, but rather a way that the community can explore Buddhist themed books. Here is the schedule:

Lovingkindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness by Sharon Salzberg – August 2019

Dipa Ma: The Life and Legacy of a Buddhist Master by Amy Schmidt – September 2019

A Still Forest Pool: The Insight Meditation of Achaan Chah, Edited by Jack Kornfield – October 2019

Mindfulness in Plain English by Henepola Gunaratana – November 2019

Awakening Together: The Spiritual Practice of Inclusivity and Community by Larry Yang – December 2019
