Cultivating Joy and Resilience in Challenging Times

Insight Meditation + Insight Dialogue three-day workshop

Bristol Zen Centre is pleased to welcome visiting insight meditation teacher Jill Shepherd for a three-day non-residential retreat, co-taught with Insight Dialogue teacher Jane Cutler.

Weaving together the practices of zen, insight meditation and Insight Dialogue, we will explore ways to meet life’s joys and challenges with more balance and ease, while embracing the reality of change and the need for an appropriate response.  In support of developing this resilient heart and mind, our time together will include silent and guided sitting meditation, walking meditation, sessions of Insight Dialogue (relational practice meditating together in pairs or small groups), optional mindful movement and some optional opportunities for individual practice meetings with the teachers.
