Two-day Insight Dialogue Workshop
With Jill Shepherd
March 16 - 17, 2019
Insight Dialogue is an interpersonal meditation practice that brings the mindfulness and tranquility of traditional silent meditation into our experience with others. Resting on the foundation of traditional Buddhist teachings, this practice offers a way to integrate our dedication to a path of wisdom and compassion with our relational lives.
In this two-day non-residential workshop, we will explore the six guidelines of Insight Dialogue in conjunction with the classical Buddhist teachings.Working together in pairs, we will use the power of relational meditation practice to understand the habits of heart and mind that lead to stress and distress, and how to free ourselves from those habits so that we can live with greater ease and happiness.
This workshop is best suited to people who have some experience of insight/vipassana/mindfulness meditation, but prior Insight Dialogue experience is not required.
Food: Please bring your own lunch. Teas and herbal teas will be supplied.
Equipment: Some chairs will be available, but please bring your own meditation cushion or bench if you have one, and a shawl or blanket.
NOTE: In support of our group practice, please arrive 15 minutes early for a prompt start, and make a commitment to stay for the full day, each day
