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

Refund and Event Policies

The pandemic is offering each of us the opportunity to take our mindfulness practices for a test drive daily, often multiple times. Even in the pre-pandemic era, we were overwhelmed, distracted and often depleted. Now it’s “more so.” While we can’t control world events, nor others, we can control how we choose to respond to what’s happening around us by being present for and accepting what already is. In my book, The Gift of Presence: A Mindfulness Guide for Women, I explore how presence or mindful awareness can be infused into more and more moments of our days through the 3 Ps of Purpose, Pivoting and Pacing.

Purpose is what matters most to us and provides direction to our lives. Its research-proven benefits for our well-being are so extensive that if it were a medication we would call it a miracle drug. Pivoting gives us the freedom and courage to make personal and professional changes when needed. Pacing reminds us that we need not do it all, all at once.

Give yourself the gift of presence by attending this event and taking the time to reflect upon your Purpose, and whether or not your life is aligned with it right now. We will explore how Pivoting and Pacing can support us in being resilient even during these especially uncertain times.
