Insight Dialogue is an interpersonal meditation practice that brings the mindfulness and tranquility of traditional silent meditation into our experience with others. Resting on the foundation of traditional Buddhist teachings, this practice offers a way to integrate wisdom and compassion into our relational lives through mindful speaking and mindful listening.
In this five-days retreat, we will use the power of relational meditation practice to understand the habits of heart and mind that lead to stress and distress, and how to free ourselves from those habits so that we can live together with greater ease and happiness. Working together in pairs, we will explore the six guidelines of Insight Dialogue in conjunction with the classical Buddhist teachings on Wise Speech: speech that is “… spoken at the right time … spoken in truth … spoken affectionately … spoken beneficially … spoken with a mind of good-will.” This retreat is best suited for people with an established meditation practice, but previous Insight Dialogue experience is not required.
Who is the retreat for?
This retreat is intended for those who are experienced practitioners of mindfulness meditation, including those who teach eight-week courses such as MBSR and MBCT and who are interested in exploring the practice of Insight Dialogue. Since Insight Dialogue meditation builds on our silent meditation, an ongoing meditation/mindfulness practice and previous retreat experience is requested.
This retreat is of great value to the development of MBP teachers and is a requirement to progress in the Interpersonal Mindfulness teaching pathway. It fulfills one of two, 5-7 day Insight Dialogue Retreat requirements for participating in the Interpersonal Mindfulness Training. It is not intended as a training and does not fulfill the silent retreat requirements for MBSR teachers certification
