A Sea of Suffering, A Call to Action, An Always Available Refuge
- Insight Dialogue / Metta Programs
- Sep 29, 2018 - Sep 30, 2018 (2 days)
In an ever changing, increasingly uncertain and troubled world, the Buddha’s teachings offer a source of sustenance, refuge, and inspiration.
Insight Dialogue is a liberating insight practice rooted in early Buddhist teachings. It bridges the experience of those teachings with the reality of our lives, shedding new light on the importance of social engagement as a step towards meeting the challenges of our times.
Insight Dialogue is a relational meditation practice that is fully integrated with traditional silent meditation and the the Dhamma, the heart of early Buddhism. It invites us to extend our meditative awareness from solitary practice into relationship with others. From here, there is a natural extension to ethical, mindful engagement with the wider community.
The weekend non-residential retreat will include periods of silent as well as relational meditation practice. Attendance at the entire weekend, and complete detachment from electronic communication devices, are strongly encouraged.
