Insight has a wonderful system to cut through the unnecessary "stuff" that gets in the way for an individual or group to succeed. You become aware of patterns that have gotten in the way of the individual or group from being fully present. I am changed for the better....I have seen others over the years reap a more productive successful life...just through an awareness and knowing of yourself.
Insight University's doctoral program in transformational leadership is ground-breaking. It supports people in becoming leaders in their own lives and in the world while simultaneously offering the students a rich and strong academic experience.
I have been involved with Insight University as both a participant and faculty member. As a participant in Insight Seminars, I learned skills and distinctions that have allowed me to live a life that is more heart-centered. As a faculty member in the doctoral program in transformational leadership, I have supported and witnessed the transformation that is possible for others. The newest program by Insight University, the Conscious Leader Program, is a brilliant offering for bringing forward greater wisdom for leaders in the workplace. Insight University's impact in the world is unparalleled. What a gift!
As a health professional dealing with chronic pain patients and orthopedic and traumatic injuries, the knowledge I receive and support I feel at insight University has not only improved my level of peace and happiness but has made me a better therapist for my patients. The insights that I share with my patients that I have learned and integrated from the courses I have taken at insight have helped my patients get better faster, have hope of recovery and truly take responsibility for their lives, leading to health and happiness for them as well. I recommend Insight University highly as a method to lead a more fulfilling life.
I am not only a professional who has worked in psychology and mental health, as an occupational therapist, as well as with those with many physical disabilities, but I also have been an adult participant as well as a volunteer for Teen and Adult Trainings. Insight is a stellar university and organization that has a way of teaching that far exceeds many other comparable institutions. They give a person an experience and the information to become a greater person, a stronger leader and a person who will contribute to society in a positive expanded way using their full potential. Their teen programs, are gratefully, extremely successful in changing the course and guiding the course of life for kids from blame to responsibility, from ineffective to empowered. I fully recommend Insight University and all the programs they offer.
Having worked for several non-profit groups in the past, I can attest that Insight has the highest standards. I have been involved with the Insight organization as a volunteer since 1989. I have found the Insight experience to be profoundly life changing, and have led to greater experiences of joy, peace, success, contentment, and happiness in all areas of my life. Give yourself the gift of Insight!
"Insight University" is the faux-secular recruitment facade of the "Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness" cult that has been running since the 1970s. The group is actively harmful, with actions ranging from vandalism and death threats against those who try to leave the cult to its leader's penchant for coerced sex with young boys. I would strongly encourage thorough and cautious research into this group and its founder before any involvement with them. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Movement_of_Spiritual_Inner_Awareness http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John-Roger#Accusations_of_cultism.2C_criminal_conduct_and_abuse http://www.people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20100035,00.html
Thank you for your review. As you have not identified yourself, I will need to respond to you as an unknown, though you refer to yourself as "An Escapee." You apparently have Insight University confused with the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness as that seems to be what you talk about in your review. You haven't written a review on Insight University, so I can only assume that you are not a current student. Insight University offers an Ed.D. in Transformational Leadership. All of the faculty have earned doctorates from accredited schools as required by the State of New Mexico. In addition we have a continuing education division that offers programs serving people throughout the world. Over the last 30+ years over 1,000,000 people have participated in those programs. In reading some of the reviews posted on this site, they seem to have had a very different experience than what you describe above. I don't keep track of the faculty's religious or spiritual focus, so you would have to ask each faculty member what their affiliation is. Further there is no requirement that any student be affiliated with a particular religious or spiritual organization. In fact there is no requirement that they have any religious or spiritual focus. Again, we don't keep track of that information, so you would have to ask each of our students individually. I wish you the best as you sort through whatever long term hurt that you seem to be harboring toward the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness. In Loving Service Gregory Stebbins, Ed.D.

Insight University has changed my life, just as Insight Seminars changed my relationship and gave me powerful tools for living. Insight University gives me hope for the world- that education can be sane and heart-directed, leadership can be full of integrity and compassion while being impactful and that colleagues can be supportive and loving. Insight University is a role model for great education and leadership.
Classical capitalism is cold at its core. The mental model that has ruled management is that reason is superior to wisdom and; therefore, emotions, feelings and intuition are rarely available. We now see how companies are riding through the greatest outbreak of confusion since the inception of classical capitalism. Do we need to upgrade capitalism and redesign the way we create prosperity?. Insight University Doctoral Programme in Transformational Leadership, integrates the heart with the mind to improve the effectiveness of leadership in the revolution we need. Its study framework provides the psychological safety I needed to transform myself. It masterfully combines the academic rigor with the demands of wisdom. A powerful and transformational experience necessary to become part of the solution.
I have been involved with Insight since 1978 To me is the most transforming educational program I know. Has given me very important, practical and useful tools to handled any area in my personal and professional life. The level of integrity, professionalism and service of the people involved are of the highest degree. I highly recommend "Insight University" to anyone.
Insight University's Programs make a continuing contribution to the education, enlightenment, and overall growth to all fortunate enough to have experienced there numerous seminars and degree offerings; the net result: the world is surely a better place!
As an urban educator, I spent years reading about, experimenting with, and implementing ways to be more effective in fulfilling my teaching mission. When in 1985 I was introduced to Insight Seminars—to its sanity, optimism, breadth, and efficacy—I thought to myself, if we could get every teacher in the country (or even a small fraction of them) to take this program, we’d revolutionize public education. We teachers would have new tools to aid in communicating with, motivating, assisting, and inspiring students. And schools could become places with more happiness, more energy, more beauty, more fun, more learning.
Now that Insight University is founded, I thrill at the possibility of this graduate program producing truly transformational leaders—for schools, for non-profits, for any institution or business. There’s probably nothing more important to our world right now than wise leadership, and I know of no better foundation for that than the one on which Insight University rests.
