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. If you cancel, we apply a 5% credit processing fee and the refunded amounts are listed below:

Refund and Event Policies

Are you an educator, activist, first responder, or community member with a story you want to tell about this pandemic and/or these fraught times but don’t know where to start? Want to document this historic moment but feeling overwhelmed? Does your teaching, activism, medical/social service, or civic participation both inspire you and eat up potential creative/writing time?

Writing your story can transform your life and maybe even the world. Yet committing yourself to writing—just like committing to social engagement or spiritual practice— takes time and faith. This workshop blends guided meditation, writing prompts, short reading and class discussion to re-inspire and renew those on the front lines who need both.

New writers will leave with a notebook full of story-buds and a plan; experienced writers can apply these techniques to revisions or book blueprinting.

Bring a notebook/pen in addition to your laptop/tablet for in-class assignments.

 

“Adiele has a comic’s timing, a novelist’s keen observations about human idiosyncrasies and an anthropologist’s sensitivity to issues of race and culture.”
