(Thursday Mornings )
at Santa Monica Annex, (1826 14th Street, Santa Monica, CA, 90404)
Deepening Your Practice is a welcoming group of dedicated practitioners who meet Thursday mornings from 7:00 to 8:30 a.m. under the guidance of InsightLA’s Founding Teacher Trudy Goodman and Senior Teacher Elizabeth Rice, as well as other InsightLA teachers and senior practitioners.
We offer a place, indeed a community, for seasoned practitioners to sit together, soak in Dharma teachings, and connect with other practitioners about how the Dharma is expressing itself in our lives. A number of us joined the Deepening Your Practice sangha shortly after Trudy arrived in LA, and some practiced meditation for numerous decades before then. We welcome you into the deep silence supported by such long-term practice.
This July - August series, we will finish up our inquiry into the Paramis on July
5th, and then turn toward the Seven Factors of Awakening, exploring how these mental
qualities can unfold in our practice to Awaken.
You may register for a single session or for this entire series online by clicking the "Register Now" button below. You may also drop-in to the event and offer a donation in person.
This offering is donation-based. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
The suggested donations are:
$20 - $30 for a single class session
$180 - $270 for the entire July - August series
Please consider in deciding how much to give that as a general matter, at an average-sized event, at $30 per participant InsightLA just covers its costs of teachers, administrators, rent, outreach, and participation of students who pay less.
Your offering is a tax-deductible donation to InsightLA. Please give at the highest level you can afford. Your act of generosity is significant. The Buddha taught that all of the beautiful qualities of heart and mind begin with generosity: Generosity dissolves the separation of self and other. Giver, receiver, and gift intertwined. Everyone has a role to play in supporting the whole community practicing to their fullest potential.
Volunteering and Questions:
If you are willing to offer service to our community (e.g. open/close, assist with audio or organization), or if you have any questions or need other assistance, please let notify Elizabeth or Paula on Thursday, or email Elizabeth at Elizabeth@InsightLA.org.
