Radiant Mind, Compassionate Heart - Practicing for the Benefit of Self and Others

Beth Sternlieb and Celeste Young are happy to offer again our summer InsightLA retreat. The practice of retreat is a cherished tradition in the world of meditation and mindfulness and a wonderful way to let go of our day-to-day routines and drop into deep silence & stillness in a the safety of a supportive community.

There will be guided meditations, instructions, teachings, and small group meetings with a teacher.

Through compassionate attention to what is, we experience greater freedom and wakefulness in each moment. As awareness grows and the mind quiets, the heart opens and its true nature is revealed. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn to hold our experience with care and wisdom. Come join us as we explore the practices of mindfulness and compassion in silence through periods of sitting and walking meditation in the safety and support of residential retreat.

This Fourth of July weekend, we invite you to join InsightLA's Beth Sternlieb and Celeste Young at the peaceful Mary and Joseph Retreat Center in beautiful Rancho Palos Verdes for Radiant Mind, Compassionate Heart - a residential silent retreat.

Please note that the price of the retreat covers accommodation, food, facilities, and other InsightLA expenses. To allow the teachers to continue their dharma work, support from the students is needed. There will be an opportunity to contribute at the end of the retreat to the teachers.
