Kalyāṇa-mittatā Retreat: A Gathering of Friends
- Insight Dialogue / Metta Programs
- <a href="http://www.dhammadialog.de/">Kalyana Mitta Vihara</a><br> (House of Noble Friendship)<br> Hindenburgstrasse 2<br> 31542 Bad Nenndorf<br> Germany
- Jan 20, 2018 - Jan 27, 2018 (8 days)
Experienced Insight Dialogue practitioners and teachers are invited to spend a week exploring what it really means to live the practice in community, to experience the practice unrestrained by the ‘now this, now that’ structure of formal retreats, and to explore ways of bringing continuity of practice into our daily lives as we meditate together while sharing our daily tasks.
Our vision is to provide the freedom to practice with what is familiar, but also the encouragement to practice with the unfamiliar, to venture close to the edge of the precipice, and to share our discoveries new and old. We have lifetimes of experience to share in this community of friends.
The form of this retreat faces directly into the challenge of any type of meditation retreat, silent or dialogic: can the values and practices be carried into the complex relationships and activities that make up our lived lives? Bhante Sukhacitto is a good Insight Dialogue teacher: grounded in the Dhamma, creative, skillful, and sincere. I’m glad he’s using his Dhamma skills and devotion to Insight Dialogue to push the limits of the practice. — Gregory Kramer
