Local Practice Groups
The group practice of Insight Dialogue is straightforward and accessible: a practice group may be formed anywhere. Insight Dialogue groups might meet once a week; some meet every other week.
The Insight Dialogue practice group is more of a meditation group than a ‘class’ with a teacher and students. Groups are offered on the basis of dana—generosity—and generally occur in people’s homes. These groups offer practice opportunities between retreats, and may serve as an entry portal for those who haven’t yet experienced Insight Dialogue and an Insight Dialogue retreat.
Local practice groups connect us and can deepen our understanding that participants are all part of a community dedicated to a path of wisdom and compassion. Group practice also reflects the Insight Dialogue principle of integrating this path with our interpersonal lives. It can remind us that we awaken together.
