Places of worship, sharing, community, or anywhere we can simply sit quietly are sacred spaces. They are infinitely worthy of safety for all.
The Buddhist teachings that InsightLA is founded on are strongly rooted in the principles of non-violence and non-harming. It is these principles that we wish to communicate with every act, word, and thought/will of compassion.
At InsightLA we know that when people share in practice, they are meeting us in a place beyond words, through connection of the heart.
When something tragic befalls a member of the community, it ripples throughout us all. We send metta [loving kindness] to the community of the Tree of Life Synagogue and to the people of Pittsburgh. Know that InsightLA is here for you.
We send wishes for healing, and our hearts meet in the place beyond words. More + VIDEO
