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

A month ago, we were living familiar lives with calendars that told us where we’d be for weeks to come. Today we’re all sailing in uncharted waters, alone and together. How do we chart a course into the unknown?  Most of you know Sandra Oh as a talented and acclaimed actor, but you may not know that Sandra is also a longtime dedicated practitioner of mindfulness. Join us for an intimate conversation with InsightLA Founding Teacher Trudy Goodman and Sandra Oh on how mindfulness can help us venture courageously into the unknown.

All of the revenue generated for this special event will serve as a fundraiser for InsightLA so that we can continue to offer programs online and support caregivers on the front lines of this crisis. Like many of us, InsightLA has become financially unstable as a result of closing our centers yet still needing to cover our rent while we shelter in place. With the loss of income from in-person events, the need for community support is dire.
 
As a non-profit organization whose sole purpose is serving the needs of our community, we want to assure you that we will continue to do everything we can to offer accessible programming that is responsive to your needs through this ever-changing situation. 
 
There are multiple pricing tiers to support people in various economic situations. As with all of InsightLA’s offerings, there are reserved pay-what-you-can spots for people of color, those in financial hardship, and other members of marginalized groups. 
 
Please pay at the highest level you are able to afford so that we can continue to make all programming accessible. 
 
There is also an opportunity at checkout to make an additional tax-deductible donation to help InsightLA continue to be a place for you to find refuge and steady your heart during this crisis and hopefully long after it ends.

This event will be utilizing the Zoom video conferencing platform. After you register, you’ll receive an email with the zoom log-in information. You’ll be provided a link to access video and dial-in number that will allow you to join by phone if preferred. When you are logged in, this info will also appear on this page.
