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

Our lives are bound together.

The more we wake up to the oppression, injustice, violence and destruction happening in our world, the easier it is to feel overwhelmed by the enormity of it.

It takes extraordinary courage to stay open, connected and hopeful in these difficult times. And it takes practice.

In order to remain compassionate and responsive to the world, it is critical that we find ways of coming together collaboratively to promote care, justice, equity, and flourishing.

Even as the world burns, we can hold in our awareness the truth that there is also love and beauty all around. While we engage in truth-seeing and truth-telling about the manifestations of greed, hatred and delusion all around us, we must also practice inclining our awareness to see and celebrate life-giving qualities of joy and pleasure. This is not a call to put on rose-colored glasses or bypass the challenges before us, but to instead help us remember that there is always more than suffering here.

When we can stay in touch with the fact of suffering, while also not losing sight of the truth of beauty and love, we can move through the world with the kind of resilience and hope needed to sustain ourselves and confront the systems of oppression that harm all of us.

In this 2-day workshop, we will engage somatic and contemplative practices developed by the Courage of Care Coalition in order to help us:

  • center, resource and reconnect through relational compassion practice;
  • recognize our “stress shapes” or habitual embodied patterns that show up in challenging contexts;
  • heal and transform our “stress shapes”;
  • envision new models of healing and being; and
  • embody a more compassionate, grounded stance in these challenging times.

Location and Dates

The workshop will be held online. You will receive a zoom link a few days prior to the start of the training.

The retreat will run from 9am – 4:30pm PST on Saturday, October 31st and 9am – 4:30pm PST on Sunday, November 1st, 2020
