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 self-identified people of color, members of marginalized groups (queer people, transgender people, and  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.

In addition, we offer Payment Plans in a variety of amounts and durations (ie: If the class is $100 you can make 2 monthly payments of $50 or 4 monthly payments of $25). 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

Please note this retreat meets the requirements for participants in Jack Kornfield + Tara Brach’s Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification program through Sounds True. Please read the Criteria for MMTCP Retreat Attendance Requirements.

This retreat is suitable for US West Coast & East Coast and European Time Zones. 

In this weeklong retreat, you’ll be guided to cultivate qualities of heart and mind that help you remember and realize your own inner abundance. Through practices that support kind presence and simplicity, we’ll explore what it is that nourishes our hearts, and supports ease, presence and embodied awareness. There will be daily meditation instruction and guidance, and include periods of movement meditation (e.g. walking), stationary meditation (e.g. sitting, standing, lying down), mindful eating, Dharma talks, practice discussions, and rest.

Retreat Testimonials:
“I’ve been meditating on and off for 10 years, and it wasn’t until this retreat that some of the learnings from my past years of practice “clicked”. I have never had such an intimate, intense, joyful, humorous, devastating, supportive experience with myself and 102 virtual strangers. I don’t quite have the words to express all that I feel I gained from this experience except to say it was one of the “best” uses of my time, attention, energy and funds. Thank you to you all for sharing.”

“Our teachers were exquisitely skilled in their knowledge of the Dharma and their embodiment of this practice/path. In addition, it was really meaningful to me to have an entire POC teaching team. The mindfulness and wellness space is often so white and having them there made me feel settled and brought a richness, power, and perspective that might have otherwise been missed.”

“The community of people I was with was amazing. The connection through the faces on my screen; it was like we were all there together as one, seeking the same answers to the same questions. A beautiful experience I will treasure and will most definitely do again.”

Dana/Generosity: 
There will also be an opportunity to offer Dana for the teachers and center at the end of the retreat. Thank you for your support!
