Christiane Wolf MD, Ph.D., Senior Teacher and Celeste Young, Senior Teacher

4/5/2019 9:00 AM - 4/7/2019 3:00 PM  at  Benedict Canyon Retreat House, (9940 Westwanda Drive, Beverly Hills, 90210) (Map It)

Come spend the weekend at ILA's beautiful Benedict Canyon Retreat House deepening your Insight meditation practice with other meditators. By bringing mindful attention to our moment to moment experience, we can learn to cultivate resilience amidst change. We will focus on practices that quiet the mind and open the heart, supporting continuity of mindfulness and the unfolding of insight.

There will be periods of silent sitting and walking meditation with some instruction and guidance, a Dharma talk, and discussion. Enjoy the seclusion and peace that a weekend of quiet practice in community offers. 

Participants are encouraged to continue practicing mindfulness at home in the evenings to strengthen their continuity of mindfulness for the full retreat experience, although this is a non-residential retreat.  

Please bring your own water bottle, lunch and snacks each day. 

Schedule:

Friday, April 5th - 9am - 4pm

Saturday, April 6th - 9am - 4pm

Sunday, April 7th - 9:30am - 3pm 


Space is limited, please be sure to sign up soon if you plan on joining us.
