This is InsightLA’s premier introduction to creating and incorporating an effective and ongoing insight meditation practice in all aspects of your life. This 6-week class is appropriate for beginners as well as experienced meditators who want to refresh the fundamentals of their practice.

In this class you will learn to reduce your stress and gain more happiness by:

  • Developing a healthier relationship with your thoughts
  • Developing more balance with your emotions
  • Being more in touch with your body and mind.

These classes provide our students with a supportive environment. Our teachers tailor their instructions to meet the specific needs of participants. In a step-by-step process students learn the nuts and bolts of insight meditation and basic mindfulness practice.

There are six weekly classes on Sunday afternoons from January 27th to March 3rd, 2019.
