InsightLA Benedict Canyon
Come spend the weekend at ILA's beautiful Benedict Canyon Retreat House deepening your Insight meditation practice with other meditators.

There will be periods of silent sitting and walking meditation with some instruction and guidance, a Dharma talk, and discussion. Enjoy the seclusion and peace that a day of quiet practice in community offers.

Participants are encouraged to continue practicing mindfulness in the evenings at home on Saturday to strengthen their continuity of mindfulness for the full retreat experience, although this is a non-residential retreat.
