Financial Support

We are committed to providing opportunities for all people to participate in our programs. We are able to offer payment plans for students who request them.  Approximately 50% of programming is donation-based, pay what you can. If you are interested in attending an offering that is tuition-based and are not able to afford the cost of the class, we offer financial support to reduce the fee of the class on a first-come first-served basis. 

We have funding allocated for People of Color (POC), Queer people, folks with serious medical conditions, and young adults (age 18-24). Funding is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Funding is budgeted per class, retreat or event and because of high demand, can run out quickly.   

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.

Most of us have goals, and the New Year is often a time of self-improvement. Our mindfulness and Dharma practice invites us into another kind of exploration, however, that is not based on “improving”, but on moving towards our deeper aspirations or intentions from a place of acceptance, presence with what is, and attention to the way we bring these goals to fruition. 

How do we embrace change and move towards new possibilities from a place of contentment? What intentions do we allow to arise when we cultivate a calm, clear mind, and a peaceful, loving heart? How do we accept what is, while steadily moving in the direction of our own well-being? 

Through mindfulness, Insight, and lovingkindness practices along with inquiry we will explore our relationship to these questions as we move towards awakening on the path. There will be periods of silent and guided sitting meditation, walking meditation, and a Dharma talk to support the development of your practice. Together, we will explore in community and leave refreshed and renewed for the New Year ahead. The retreat will be held in silence to support a deepening of mindful awareness and insight.

Participants are encouraged to continue practicing mindfulness in the evening at home to strengthen their continuity of mindfulness for the full retreat experience, as this is a non-residential retreat.  

Please bring your own water bottle, lunch and snacks each day.
