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

Refund and Event Policies

As we find our way through this tumultuous time, we have all found ourselves both needing care and compassion and extending them to others in need. This class is an introduction to the Zen Caregiving Project’s model of mindful/contemplative care. Participants will be offered insight and practices for the development of the internal and emotional resources needed to truly be of service to others, as well as working with our own experience of loss and our own mortality.

This is a series of three classes that will cover topics including active, mindful listening, meditations and contemplations addressing for compassion, our own mortality, interdependence, and community.

These classes are appropriate for everybody, and will be of interest to those who are or will be taking care of family members, wanting to volunteer as a contemplative caregiver, and who are interested in looking deeply into how the knowledge of our own mortality can inspire compassion connection and response to our needs and the needs of others. The classes are also of interest to health care and mental health care professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, psychotherapists, occupational therapists, and health care researchers.

We are hoping these classes will inspire the growth of spiritual practice communities interested in the topics of caregiving, death, loss, and grief around the world, and more specifically, establishing a community/sangha in the Los Angeles area dedicated these topics and practices.

Zen Caregiving Project, formerly Zen Hospice Project, is a non-profit organization based in San Francisco, California with over 30 years of experience in practicing and teaching mindfulness-based, compassionate caregiving. They offer courses, workshops, and training for professional, family, clinical, and volunteer caregivers. Through their work, they provide a context for public discussion of caregiving, loss, and death.
