Join InsightLA's Trudy Goodman and Beth Sternlieb for this very special retreat at the beautiful and serene Royal Way Spiritual Center.

Ride the Worldly Winds: How to hold opposing (OR opposite) experiences in our hearts?

How can love and hate, light and dark, disturbance and pleasure peacefully co-exist in the same heart, towards the same person?

When peaceful co-existence is not yet possible, how can we ride the waves of conflicting and fluctuating emotions; especially in the vibrant experience of relationship with our partners, family members, colleagues, friends, and community members?

How do we stay connected through times of disconnection? Sometimes called the "worldly winds" of disturbing opposites, gain and loss, joy and sorrow, fame and disrepute, pleasure and pain challenge our practice as they arise and fall away in the changing moments of our being.

We'll explore working with internal and external differences of opinion, emotion, and the timing of acceptance, clarity, and equanimity.
This retreat is appropriate for those who are new to retreat practice as well as those with experience.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have at or (310) 450-1821.
