Finding Refuge Amidst the Flames: A 75th Birthday Evening Honoring Trudy Goodman
June 9 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The long-planned honoring of Trudy Goodman and InsightLA is now joined with an urgent new call. Our practices, our sense of justice, compassion and caring presence are being challenged by shared suffering and the need for wise and courageous response.
For the day of her 75th birthday, June 9, Trudy Goodman, InsightLA founding teacher, invited her old friends to celebrate with us as a benefit for InsightLA. Now, in these times, we are fortunate to have some of the world’s most admired teachers and authors, Anam Thubten, George Mumford, Sharon Salzberg, Joseph Goldstein, Jack Kornfield, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Chris Germer, Tara Brach and more, to share their wisdom with us.
Together we will honor the creation of InsightLA as a place of refuge and action. Our guest teachers will reflect, offer teachings, understanding and support as we stand together against the scourge of racism and the need for profound change.
Let’s sit together so we can stand together!
All proceeds from this benefit event will allow InsightLA to continue their frontline community work in the midst of this massive pandemic and calls for racial justice.
