Awakening Together: The Power of Spiritual Friendship
With Janet Surrey
October 13, 2018
A Half-Day Retreat with Janet Surrey
This retreat will be an introduction to Insight Dialogue, a fully engaged relational meditation practice in the Theravadan tradition. Insight Dialogue brings together meditative awareness, the wisdom teachings of the Buddha, and the power of relationship to support insight into the nature, source, and release of human suffering.
In this retreat we will introduce the six meditative guidelines of Insight Dialogue: Pause, Relax, Open, Attune to Emergence, Listen Deeply, and Speak the Truth. We will explore the importance of spiritual friendship on the Path, and how Insight Dialogue practice supports our capacity for nourishing spiritual friendship in our lives.
The retreat will be held in Noble Silence as we explore the power of listening and speaking out of Silence. The retreat is appropriate for those new to and experienced with Insight Dialogue. Prior meditation experience is suggested
