Cultivating Friendship on the Path: An Insight Dialogue Retreat

About This Event

Half Day Retreat

This afternoon retreat will offer Insight Dialogue meditation practice to contemplate the power of spiritual friendship on the Buddha’s eightfold path. We will look at classical teachings and contemporary challenges and opportunities for the cultivation and nourishment of such friendship in our lives. This important aspect of the path has not yet been fully appreciated and supported in many contemporary Buddhist communities, and there is currently increasing attention to this factor of meditative practice and strengthening community.

Insight Dialogue is a relational meditation practice that brings together meditative awareness, the wisdom teachings of the Buddha, and our human sensitivity and power in relationships. It has the same purpose and roots of silent meditation: developing mindfulness, compassion and liberating insight while investigating the truth of the present moment together.

In this retreat the six guidelines of Insight Dialogue will be introduced: Pause, Relax, Open, Attune to Emergence, Listen Deeply, and Speak the Truth. The retreat is open to new as well as experienced practitioners of Insight Dialogue.
