Inside Joy, a daylong retreat

Oct 8 (Sat)
10:00am - 4:00pm
Santa Monica
One of the ever-present blessings of life is the warmth and affection of sympathetic joy.

Our lives blossom in the midst of gladness and sorrow, gloomy days and summer sunshine. Research into mirror neurons demonstrates that when we see others enjoying life, the same areas of enjoyment can light up in our own brains.

At this time in our world, we need to find ourselves inside joy! it's In this daylong, we will practice noticing, savoring and rejoicing in the unexpected goodness we find in ourselves and others as we sit and walk mindfully together.

InsightLA's monthly silent insight meditation retreats are open to students of all levels, and include time for sitting and walking meditation, dharma talk and discussion.
