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.

Refund and Event Policies

As a support for increasing your capacity for more subtle awareness of your experience, this daylong will explore the three manifest levels of the Nine Bodies meditation series: the physical, vital, and emotional bodies. As we intentionally direct our attention to these bodies, or levels, of consciousness, we strengthen our embodied awareness practice, get a clearer understanding of how we create our experience of the world, and discover our source of inner strength. These explorations may also increase the clarity and specificity of your mindfulness and enable the arising of insight.

The Nine Bodies are a set of teachings about the nature of consciousness that were first transmitted to Phillip Moffitt by the Himalayan yoga master Sri Swami Premvarni Balyogi twenty years ago. Phillip has integrated the teachings into meditation practice and they are the basis for his book: Awakening through the Nine Bodies.

The day will include an introduction to the Nine Bodies teachings, a series of guided meditations, walking meditation, Q & A, and a 1.5 hour lunch break around 11:30-1pm PT.  All levels of meditation students are welcome to attend this daylong.

Pricing: Compensation for the teachers is included in the base cost.

Any amount above the base cost becomes a tax deductible donation that helps to subsidize the cost for fellow practitioners who might not otherwise be able to afford to attend. 

Life Balance Institute, the Nine Bodies teaching staff, and InsightLA are committed to the liberation of all beings. In keeping with this commitment, we will be offering a portion of the registration fees from our online and residential retreats to a charity equally dedicated to ending suffering for all beings.  Funds from this retreat will be offered to Equal Justice Initiative.
