(5 Thursday mornings)
at Santa Monica Main Center, (1430 Olympic Blvd., Santa Monica, CA, 90404)
The class will explore contemporary and traditional mindfulness and compassion practices that help us let go of fear and reactive habit patterns. Including difficult emotions in our meditation practice is significant. As we learn to navigate the inevitable challenges of life with confidence, stability, and kindness, we can transform our relationship to ourselves, to others and to our world.
This class is ideal for the student who has already taken a meditation class like Basics of Mindfulness, Mindful Self Compassion or Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and who wishes to deepen their mindfulness meditation practice. If you have some meditation experience but have not taken an InsightLA class, please contact the teacher.
"Peace within oneself is to be found in the same place as agitation and suffering. It is not found in a forest or on a hilltop, nor is it given by a teacher. Where you experience suffering, you can also find freedom from suffering. Trying to run away from suffering is actually to run toward it." -- Ajahn Chah
There are 5 weekly classes.
