Refund and Event Policies

Join with friends and explore how mindfulness and self-compassion practices can help support us as we age.

The Mindful Aging practice group meets online every Wednesday at 10:15am, led by InsightLA Teacher Wendy Schmelzer.

Mindful Aging

“This being human is a guesthouse.  Every morning a new arrival…” – Rumi

As we age, so many of each morning’s new arrivals seem to be challenging guests. With practice, we can welcome these guests with more tenderness and awareness.

Experience the reparative, restorative and healing power of traveling this path surrounded by the warmth and support of community.  

Who is this practice group for?

The Mindful Aging practice group is for anyone who would like to explore how mindfulness and self-compassion practices can support us in what can be a difficult and uncertain time.

Expect guided meditation, discussion and opportunities to cultivate more equanimity—wisdom and heart—within the supportive container of community.

Where is this practice located?

Mindful Aging is an online practice group. Join us LIVE on Zoom from the comfort of your own home. The Zoom link will be sent via email to everyone who registers.
