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 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

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

– Anais Nin

Each Spring nature repeats the ritual from coming out of the cold, out of the dark, out of resourcing and resting, back into the open, the visible, from dormant to blooming. This is the natural rhythm of the earth, of which we are a part. But often we are either afraid or we have simply unlearned to how to open up again to life, into bloom. Maybe we went through a period of sorrow or heartbreak, or maybe we are just in a shock and overwhelm over what is going on in the world around us.

Jack Gilbert not only encourages us to practice joy, he is very clear “We must risk delight!” How can we do this while honoring the struggle and pain that is behind us or still ongoing? This practice period invites us to lovingly listen to how we are called to move into this new season.

This 2-day non-residential retreat will be held in “noble silence”, to support us in dropping more deeply into our own experience as we open up to being in community and in nature. We will practice Vipassana, insight meditation and the heart practices, supported by poetry, Dharma talks and journaling (if you choose to).

Schedule Friday 10-8pm and Saturday 10-4pm.

What to bring:
Layers of cloth, your own cushion and mat if you like to, a journal, a mug or thermos, water bottle, sun screen, your own food for each day: bagged lunch and bagged light dinner, extra snacks. We will provide snacks, tea and water. If you want coffee, please bring your own.

Please be prepared to keep practicing noble silence over night if possible at all.
