Sunday mornings are treasured at InsightLA as we enjoy a warm community gathering for this special weekly practice group. This group began late in 2002 and is the longest-running, most attended group on the calendar after almost twenty years. All of our drop-in sitting groups are an opportunity for you to learn more about meditation practice in a welcoming environment. All Practice Groups at InsightLA are drop-in and donation-based, so please come through and let’s sit together!

There will be a meditation with some guidance, followed by a Dharma talk and dialogue. Optional break-out groups give you a chance to get to know others and explore your practice experiences together.

No prior meditation experience is necessary. If you are a complete beginner, Trudy suggests you take an Essentials of Mindfulness class, too.   

Suggested Donation: $35
