So dear friends of InsightLA,
We are eager to share with you a few memories from our first Community Festival, on Sunday, November, 11th. It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon. The sun was shining and a cool wind tempered the atmosphere for a perfect climate to festival in. The Cul de Sac at 15th street, adjacent to our building was blocked off and filled with tables and chairs, our “Lucy Booth” with Dharma Wisdom and a stage at the far end where the performers played. There were interesting people who presented things like essential oils, wellness practices, family constellation work along with our very own InsightLA T-Shirt stand.
There’s even a dancing Dharma Teacher Clip if you scroll down a few.
On the Main Stage, performers played and danced and sang:
InsightLA’s resident “Man in Black”, Fundraising & Development Director, Mike Sirota.
Some felt the urge to dance a bit.
And there were those who had to tap. Watch Diana Gould’s number above.
Starring a chorus of InsightLA Teachers and Executive Director Susan Love Loughmiller.
Andi Schoenbaum painted faces. Erin Carr shared her knowledge of the body.THERE WERE T-SHIRTS!!!
Upstairs in the Meditation Hall, the Dharmathon was underway. With each of the teachers leading a short practice period and sharing their insights.

THANK YOU AGAIN TO EVERYONE. WITHOUT YOU, NONE OF THIS WOULD BE POSSIBLE!
