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

In this unique one-day workshop we will explore the challenges and opportunities inherent in the movement into and throughout elderhood.  For many people, becoming an elder can be accompanied by anxiety and uncertainty as our very mortality becomes a near reality – as opposed to something that will happen someday far in the future. The passage of time takes on new meaning.  However, this chapter of our lives can also be exciting and empowering.  Access to empowerment is possible when we receive personally individualized compassionate support and  acquire a tried-and-true process, designed to encourage resilience in the midst of the inevitable uncertainty that accompanies the many changes and challenges characterized by this chapter of our lives. 

In this intimate exploration, we will examine the changes to our minds and bodies, investigate our relationship to self-empowerment, and explore our place in a changing world.  Our mission in this workshop is to gain more insight, direction, and confidence as you move toward the life you desire for yourself.   Our day together will be pragmatic:  you will have the opportunity to apply each teaching module to your specific change and transition concerns.  You will experience strategic learning, personal exploration and participant interaction as well as develop new tools and understanding so that you can more fully embody this rich and challenging time in our lives.  Research has shown that how well we navigate change – and the transition that follows it – has a direct impact on the degree of well-being, purpose, and satisfaction we experience on a day-to-day basis.  Claim all that’s yours to be and do, and  make the most of your opportunity to embody your personal definition of well-being!

In this workshop, you will learn skills to effectively respond to change.  You will:  

  • Learn about the nature of change and how to navigate the emotions and uncertainty that accompany it.
  • Assess what parts of your life are in or out of balance, and discover what rebalancing needs to happen to support the change you desire.
  • Explore your values, goals, and essential intentions to help guide your next steps.
  • Examine your personal “Journey through Change” to use as a map to locate where you likely have come from, where you currently are, and what you might be experiencing next. 
  • Gain insights about your strengths, challenges, and habits of mind in dealing with uncertainty and change.
  • Create a strategy for effectively manifesting the life you want for yourself.

The Life Balance Institute has been offering weekend workshops, 1:1 coaching and class series for over thirty years.  They have successfully supported thousands of people in moving through the challenges of personal and professional changes and transitions.  You will receive a variety of their self-assessments and tools as handouts to further support your journey of change.   

The workshop will be led by Ron Ames and Alison Teal, both leaders in their respective fields, and also certified Changes & Transitions strategists and mindfulness educators.  For more information about Alison go to www.alisonteal.net and for Ron, https://insightla.org/teacher/ron-ames-2/.  

Schedule (PT):
Saturday, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm (with a 1-hour lunch break from 12:30 – 1:30 pm)

Space is extremely limited for this intimate experience so please register early if you plan to join us. This workshop will be held online, on the Zoom platform.

Expect a day of dynamic inquiry and learn to meet change with authenticity, confidence, and clarity.
