Vote now to help make LA “capital of mindfulness” in 2050

InsightLA is up for consideration in the MY LA2050 Challenge, sponsored by the Goldhirsh Foundation. The 10 winners of the challenge will receive a $100,000 grant to continue their work — in the case of InsightLA, that’s “sharing the peace, joy and freedom of mindfulness with people from all walks of life.” InsightLA’s goal, founder Trudy Goodman explains, is to catalyze a mindfulness movement in the city by 2050, working with people in all fields to provide “the tools, teachings, and network of teachers to help more people learn how to install healthy behaviors that benefit ourselves, our families, our institutions, and our city.”

Voting is easy and open to everyone, but there’s only one day left to do it. To vote for InsightLA, visit its LA2050 page, and click Vote. If you’re not signed up for a GOOD account, you’ll have to create one, but it’s free and has no obligations. You’ll then get an email asking you to verify your vote — once you click the link, your vote will be counted, and you’ll be all set. Voting ends on Wednesday at noon PDT.
