What might we discover about ourselves if we learn to ask the right questions? How deep can the learning go when we move beyond familiar answers?
On Sunday, June 25th, join Senior Teacher Justine Dawson and the InsightLA sangha for a day of spiritual inquiry. We will learn to use the power of reflective questions to access fresh perspective, ease and awakened understanding.
What is Spiritual Inquiry?
Spiritual Inquiry is the process of using repeated potent questions to move beyond habitual patterns of thought and into deeper understanding and insight. While it can help heal accumulated knots and traumas, it is also helpful for digesting the daily ups and downs of life, connecting us to a much vaster sense of being.
Go beyond the familiar stories and habitual answers to life’s questions and discover new possibilities of body, heart and mind.
We’ll spend our day practicing mindful awareness, radical curiosity, embodied listening, and welcoming receptivity through meditative, written and paired dialog inquiry practices. There will be periods of silence and talking, inward reflection and community sharing.
Expect to leave refreshed, inspired

“Justine taught me to be present, in approval of everything that comes up for me and to get lovingly curious in that spot. She has the sensitive ability to gently meet me where I’m at at all times, my system relaxes in her presence, my protection goes down and that way I get to the core of what is underneath.”
Anne Breiehagen, Coach, Norway
“Working with Justine’s quality of nurturing that blends hard truths with unconditional compassion, I don’t get lost in techniques or tools. Instead, Justine gives real-world practices for everyday life that are directly applicable to my own individual situation. It feels like Justine meets me where I am, and then points to where I deep down know I want to be. While it hasn’t been easy, it has been the most rewarding work I’ve done.”

“Justine’s compassionate and gentle method was a refreshing and much needed medicine for my heart and soul. Justine’s approval and curiosity for the good, bad and the ugly gave me the space to finally be able to turn toward parts of myself that I’d previously shunned. I was able to heal from deep childhood wounds that were activated through multiple relationship endings and painful life events, I shed ways of being that were keeping me from having what I want, and opened to a lighter, softer, more open-hearted version of myself.”
