Engaging Fully and Wisely: An Insight Dialogue Retreat

About This Event


Insight Dialogue brings the Buddha’s teachings to life relationally in the body and heart as intuitive wisdom. Cultivating awareness of the habitual tensions that maintain suffering and learning new pathways of release establish us freshly in the present moment. Returning to loving presence is a source of strength and recovery in the midst of life’s challenges. It allows us to see clearly and engage wisely personally and socially.

The three bases of Insight Dialogue practice – meditation, wisdom, and relationship – form the foundation and a path for letting go and liberation. 

The retreat will be held in Social Silence (Noble Silence) as we explore the power of listening and speaking out of silence. There will be times of silent sitting, mindful movement, and dialogue in groups of 2 or more with guided contemplations. 

This is an opportunity to encounter Insight Dialogue for the first time and for experienced ID meditators to deepen their practice. The retreat will be taught in English, however, Bart is a native Dutch speaker and will happily assist anyone who would benefit from help with translation. Prior silent meditation experience is required.

We are all in this together. Since the Buddha’s time teachers and communities have depended on each other. Teachers receive no payment. They travel offering the teachings to everyone who chooses to participate. The retreat fee covers your food and lodging and the travel, food and lodging for the teachers and managers. Through this shared practice of dana: giving, we sustain circles of generosity in our world. By financially supporting the teachers in their livelihood and the managers for their efforts you help to sustain these priceless teachings.  There will be an opportunity to offer dana at the end of the retreat.

Post-retreat opportunity to cultivate the capacity to offer ID with Phyllis: August 14-16, 2020
