Hope and fear in the form of four pairs of opposites dominate our lives each day. They are pleasure and pain, gain and loss, praise and blame, fame and insignificance.  In spite of their pervasiveness, we normally remain unaware of how deeply they enslave us and cause us suffering.  While we can’t simply eradicate hope and fear, we can get to know these tricksters intimately, and use them to become wiser, kinder and more insightful.

About the teacher:

Jeff Rubin is a senior teacher and meditation instructor in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition. Since 2006 Jeff has been directing programs on Unconditional Healing, a new model of health that transforms one’s relationship to pain and adversity.  Shortly thereafter he established the Healing Circle, a monthly meeting that provides support and reinforces teachings and practices on unconditional health and well-being.   Healing Circles meet in LA on the first Saturday of every month.

The Shambhala Center of Los Angeles remains open because of the ongoing generosity of our community. One of the cornerstones of our policy is that no one be turned away for lack of funds. If you can’t afford a program, please call our office (323-255-5472) to register based on what you can afford. At the same time, the Center relies on program revenue to cover costs. For those who are able to pay more than the program price, your generosity in paying the Patron Price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price, and provides additional support to the Shambhala Center of Los Angeles. Thank you for your kindness!

If you cancel more than 7 days prior to your class (and have already paid), you will receive a full refund less a processing fee of $15. If you cancel between 1 to 7 days prior to arrival, we will credit your payment towards another program at Shambhala Los Angeles to be used within 1 year. No refunds or credits are issued for cancellations received fewer than 24 hours prior to arrival.
