Welcome to the Insight Boston Community! We held our first seminar in 1979 and have been moving forward ever since!
We are a volunteer community comprised of people of all ages and backgrounds, connected by our enthusiasm for the Insight work, our desire to expand our own self-awareness, and our commitment to make a difference by creating a more loving and compassionate world.
We offer Insight I and Insight II seminars in the greater Boston area annually. Our intention is to add an Insight III or Teen seminar every few years based on community interest and support.
We also offer weekly zoom calls and bi-monthly zoom workshops to introduce and review key Insight lessons. We hold social gatherings such as summer picnics, hikes, dances or dinners. And we have a robust team of volunteers and assistants that allow for these events to happen.
We welcome and encourage your involvement. If you have questions, want to get involved or receive updates, email email@example.com. (Ask to be put on the *BOSTON* mailing list.) You will meet wonderful people, have a great time and connect with your own heart.
Live, in-person seminar!

Insight I builds the foundation for awakening your heart and discovering what will support you in creating a life you love.
What to Expect:
In a few short days, you will have an opportunity to look at:
• The power of intentions and creating more of what you want in your life
• How to love, trust, and commit to yourself more fully
• Giving and receiving feedback in a loving and supportive way
• Using forgiveness to get free of any past hurts holding you back
• Sharing with other people in a loving and authentic way
• Making choices that are aligned with your intuition
• Learning to live more fully from your heart– your authentic Self
The Seminar is joyful, engaging, and moves quickly through a combination of short presentations, one-to-one exercises, small group activities, guided imagery processes, and sharing with the facilitators.
Insight I is crafted to guide you on your own journey of self-discovery in a loving, respectful, and supportive environment..
Live, in-person seminar!
November 8 – 12, 2023
Insight II has been called the “jewel in the crown of Insight Seminars”. Many participants consider it a life-changing experience.
What to expect:
Commitment…to working hard to uncover the ways you hold yourself back.
Freedom…from limiting patterns.
Excitement…as you open your heart and stretch into new possibilities.
Joy…in claiming who you are!
Join us in a welcoming, supportive space to share, connect, risk, and experience heartfelt, authentic expression.
Give yourself this magical 5 day experience devoted to you!
Zoom calls are a powerful and fun way to connect with our Insight Boston community whether you want to stay in touch or get to know us. The following events are designed with the amazing heartfelt magic of Insight. Please come and share with others!
Mike Connor, one of our Master Facilitators, has created 100 videos with some of the tips and tools presented in the Insight I seminar. Each week, we review two of these videos and share our thoughts about how we can use them in our daily lives for our growth, upliftment and learning.
Learn more about yourself through confidential, open-hearted sharing. Come to just to listen in or share your voice in this loving community.
These workshops are led by Insight leaders and facilitators. They offer a taste of all the things you love and expect from an Insight Seminar. Each event focuses on a specific topic and includes an educational piece, breakout rooms with specific questions for your deeper understanding of self, and guided meditations (or closed eye processes). You might just fall in love with a stranger or make a new friend in these events designed to take you right to the heart of the matter!
Come as often as you’d like!

Weingast-Nieratko Handelman Fund
We set up our Pay-it-Forward Tuition Assistance Fund in Honor of Laura Weingast Nieratko, longtime Insight Boston community member and supporter. The fund was renamed to also honor a cherished community member and leader of Insight Boston, Jacob Handelman. The fund provides tuition assistance to members of the Insight Boston community who would not be able to fully pay for a seminar on their own.
To request tuition assistance for a seminar, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
Help us ensure the benefits of Insight stay available to all.
