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:

Experiencing climate change anxiety? Learn how meditation might be useful to gain peace of mind and find the courage to meet the looming challenges and implement needed change.

This five week seminar will explore the Great Elemental Meditations (Mahābhūta Dhāraṇās) in Buddhism, Jainism, Yoga, and Vedānta. Combining theory and practice, this course will include a close reading of primary literature from Buddhism, the Vedas, the Gheraṇḍa Saṃhitā, and the Yogavāsiṣṭha. Students will read Living Landscapes: Meditation on the Elements in Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain Yogas (Chapple, SUNY Press, 2020).

Christopher Key Chapple is Doshi Professor of Indic and Comparative Theology and Director of the Master of Arts in Yoga Studies at Loyola Marymount University. He has published more than twenty books and serves on the advisory board for the Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale University.
