Welcome to the Insight Boston Community! We began in the late 1970s when Insight Seminars were first being offered. We held our first seminar in 1979 and have been moving forward ever since!
We are a volunteer community comprised of people of many 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.
Our intention is to offer two to four Insight Seminars in the Boston area annually. Each year we will work to create at least one Insight I and Insight II seminar. Every few years we will add an Insight III seminar. And if there is enough community interest and support, we will create a Teen seminar.
From time to time we also offer short workshops to review the Insight lessons and social gatherings such as a summer picnic or party for people to come together and have fun.
We welcome and encourage your involvement. Please reach out to us if you would like to take a seminar or be on the team that creates the seminars. Either way, during the process you will meet wonderful people, have a great time and connect with your own heart.
The following events are designed with the amazing heartfelt magic of Insight. Grads and non-grads are welcome. Please come and share with others!

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.
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!
