This is InsightLA’s popular Essentials of Mindfulness Class!

This is our premier introduction to creating and incorporating an effective and ongoing insight meditation practice in all aspects of your life. This 6-week class is appropriate for beginners as well as experienced meditators who want to refresh the fundamentals of their practice.

In this class you will learn to reduce your stress and gain more happiness by:

1. Developing a healthier relationship with your thoughts
2. Developing more balance with your emotions
3. Being more in touch with your body and mind.

These classes provide our students with a supportive environment. Our teachers tailor their instructions to meet the specific needs of participants. In a step-by-step process students learn the nuts and bolts of insight meditation and basic mindfulness practice.

There are six weekly classes that take place on Tuesday evenings from 7p – 8:45pm January 15th to February 19th.

At InsightLA, we’re dedicated to creating a safe and welcome, open and equitable community that stands firmly against all racial, gender, economic, or religious bias.

InsightLA works 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.

Financial support or work exchange opportunities may be available for this program. There is special funding allocated to 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-serve basis. Financial support is budgeted per class, retreat or event and because of high demand, can run out quickly. For more information, please contact: financialsupport@insightla.org

InsightLA reserves 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.
