Celeste Young

Celeste began formal meditation practice in 2002. She was invited to join the very first teacher development cohort at InsightLA under the guidance of founder Trudy Goodman in 2011 and has since taught thousands of students the basics of mindfulness over the years. Celeste offers several classes a week as a core teacher at ILA, in both the mindfulness and Dharma programs, and sits on the InsightLA teacher’s council. In addition, she teaches mindfulness for companies and non-profit organizations, works with individuals privately, and leads workshops, daylongs, and residential retreats. Her background includes many years as a yoga practitioner, Peter Levine’s somatic experiencing training, Spirit Rock’s Advanced Practitioner Program and nearly a decade of sitting silent meditation retreat each year, with a strong commitment to long retreats of 1-3 months. In 2017 she was given teacher transmission by Trudy Goodman and Jack Kornfield. She loves sharing the practice of mindfulness with others and strongly believes in the power of mindful awareness to heal and re-connect us to our own inherent sense of ease and well-being.

More about Celeste

I curate a drop in, donation based sitting group for folks in their 20's + 30's, offered every Sunday evening at InsightLA Olympic. The intention is to create a space of collective wisdom and sharing through sitting meditation with time for discussion. We may also choose readings together to reflect on or topics to explore with a focus on what's most alive in your practice, including how to live the teachings of mindfulness and compassion in daily life as a young person, navigating transitions, career, romantic partnerships, family, life choices, and how to live with greater clarity.
