Join us virtually every Saturday from 11:00am-12:30pm PT for InsightLA’s Mindfulness and Deep Suffering Affinity & Practice Group – H.O.PE. (Healing Ourselves through the Present Experience).
We come together to meditate and talk about supporting the people in our lives (including ourselves) who may be struggling with deep suffering, hopelessness, helplessness, disconnection, mental health/health challenges, and/or suicidal thoughts.
We will discuss – and practice – the importance of connection, community, and compassion.
There will be a 15-20 minute guided meditation and teaching (recorded), and time for conversation, discussion, and questions (not recorded).
Suggested Donation: $0–$10 (your presence is donation enough!)
To watch or listen to previous H.O.P.E. Groups:
As always, if you are considering giving up or if you know someone who might be at risk for suicide, please call 800-273-TALK (8255) and visit: https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/
Since April 2020, the H.O.PE. group has been a refuge and sanctuary for those of us who feel lost at times, without judgement, shame, or pressure.
“The opposite of deep suffering is not just the absence of suffering. The opposite of deep suffering is connection.”
