    One Bright Hour

    One Bright Hour

    “Where do we go from here: Chaos or Community?” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Amidst the difficulties and divisions that face our country and the world, join us to create a space of refuge and a spirit of hope. Each of us is an unbounded source of inner wisdom and love, with enough power to heal ourselves and those around us. These innate qualities can be awakened and strengthened by gathering together with an intention to meaningfully connect with others in an open and inclusive way.

    Everyone is welcome at this hour of meditation, reflection and conversation aimed at growing our capacity to love and act wisely, even in this most trying of times.

    Meditation Day with Jeremy Graves

    Join us at Middle Way LA for an all day urban meditation retreat - a perfect opportunity for meditators of all levels and backgrounds to kick start their practice with personalized instruction and one-on-one interviews with the teacher – or simply to relax and set their stress aside. We will be led by Jeremy Graves, who along with his teacher Culadasa, and Matthew Immergut PhD, is an author of the bestselling meditation manual, The Mind Illuminated: A Complete Meditation Guide Integrating Buddhist Wisdom and Brain Science. Come treat yourself to a day of serenity and inner exploration, from morning to evening. Please bring your own lunch.

    Praise for The Mind Illuminated

    “This book is a rare and valuable treasure, providing a detailed, step-by-step account of how meditation practice progresses.” – Shinzen Young, author of Break Through Pain, and meditation teacher.

    “The Mind Illuminated will be a great help to anyone who wants to completely fathom the process of meditative development in all its stages…  In largely Western language, with help from wonderful images and diagrams, this book brings the path of meditation to life.” – Sharon Salzberg, The New York Times best-selling author of Real Happiness.
