Exploring the Dharma through Poetry: A daylong retreat with Phillip Moffitt

Oct 21 (Sat)
9:30am - 4:30pm
Santa Monica
Each moment of life - both the ordinary and the extraordinary - is imbued with "alive" presence. Being awake to this alive presence gives us an immediate sense of life's meaning.

This feeling is what poets try to capture in verse. Using poetry as our inspiration and our guide, we will explore how mindfulness and gratitude can help us experience a more continuous sense of alive presence.

This daylong will consist of sitting and walking meditation practice interspersed with dharma discussions based on a selection of poems.

All are welcome.

The program is suitable for both beginning and experienced meditation students.

We are truly honored to welcome Phillip Moffitt back to InsightLA with his latest offering. He is a well-respected teacher of the dharma whose teachings have touched and inspired many people on the path.

Please register early for this event, Phillip is a wonderful teacher and definitely not to be missed!
