Awakened Heart: InsightLA's 2018 Benefit
Join us for InsightLA's 2018 benefit, The Awakened Heart: A Day of Practice with Jack Kornfield.
This joyful day of transformative teachings, wonderful stories, heart practices is about awakening together. In these turbulent and divisive times, more than ever we need ways to steady our hearts, calm our minds, clear our vision, and inspire our action.
We will cultivate the qualities of courage and love, how to dwell in kind awareness, and how to enhance our natural capacity for care and connection, toward ourselves, our society and all beings.
Metta or friendly goodwill -- combined with [the other three Divine Abidings] compassion, sympathetic joy, and equanimity and forgiveness -- are the revolutionary and necessary powers that can transform our lives and mend our world.
A star at dawn, a drop of dew, an echo, a rainbow, and a dream.
Attendance for this daylong is limited. Proceeds from this benefit support InsightLA's "Insight in Action" program, which offers scholarships to those in need and provides meditation and mindfulness training to caregivers and those on the front lines of suffering. More
