About the event

Please join us for a daylong retreat to explore “The Lightness of Being in the Darkness of Winter.” It will be a precious opportunity for the South Bay and Long Beach communities of InsightLA to practice together at this in-person event.

Through Dharma teachings, meditation and other supportive methods, we will discover ways to touch into the luminous qualities of the mind. We will begin to settle into the natural rhythm of “Wintering” during the shortened days and longer nights ahead. As we spend the day together, our shared intention will turn towards the transformation of darkness into light through the vehicles of compassion, awakening and community.

Our retreat will take place at the Mary & Joseph Retreat Center in the Main Chapel and the surrounding outdoor areas. Chairs will be available for sitting, or you may bring your cushions and benches for meditation. We will be wearing masks indoors as a health precaution. Please bring your own water, lunch and refreshments for our breaks. You can download a map to locate the Main Chapel here: Mary & Joseph Retreat Center.

Registration is required and space is limited for this event, so if you would like to attend, please sign up as soon as possible. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. To bypass the registration fee, contact Eric McCullum at  We look forward to seeing you there!
