About us

Understanding suffering and its cessation calls us to investigate the knot-hard tangle of the self. That knot is held tight by thirst, by craving.  When two or more are gathered, great forces are at work and we usually pull the knots tighter. But these forces can also untangle the knot. As mindfulness and calm are developed in Insight Dialogue, we can begin to feel the heart’s release. When we see deeply into the suffering of separation and isolation, we begin to taste the possibility of true refuge in sangha. The teachings of relational dhamma point directly to this insight, and this insight requires the integrated power of both silent practice and relational practice. Cultivating sati and samadhi together in Insight Dialogue, we begin to realize the power of solitude and communion in our lives.

This retreat will take place in noble silence, with the only speaking occurring during Insight Dialogue practice. Free from habitual speech, free from online communications, supported by nature, we learn that space of practice that moves wisely between words and the wordless.

This retreat is recommended for people who have participated at least two silent retreats.
