VSI MONTHLY MEDITATION RETREAT - GUIDED & SILENT MEDITATION

On the 4th Saturday of every month, VSI (Vipassana Support International) offers a day of meditation.

Guided meditation & instructions in the morning & after lunch - otherwise periods of silent sitting with the option for walking meditation practice.

Opportunity to meet with facilitators to discuss personal practice.

(There is a suggested donation of $30/day, $15/half day.)

Bring lunch for optional eating meditation. Come for all or part of the day.

All facilitators are trained by SHINZEN YOUNG whose contemporary, innovative & scientific "Basic Mindfulness" system is presently being studied by Harvard, Yale, and other prestigious institutions.

But ALL ARE WELCOME - regardless of what kind of meditation you practice.  Most facilitators are versed in several methods and will strive to help you use mindfulness to reduce discomfort & increase happiness in your life.

    This is the perfect venue because thousands of people have meditated here for over 20 years.

    Stephanie Nash is brilliant in her descriptions and applications of the meditation techniques that she has studied with Shinzen for so many years.
    It was a beautiful day of meditation and connection. This monthly meetup is one of Los Angeles's hidden treasures.
