Kalyāṇa-mittatā Retreat: A Gathering of Beautiful Friends

With Mary Burns and Bhikkhu Sukhacitto

June 21 - 30, 2019

Insight Dialogue practitioners and teachers are invited to spend a week exploring what it really means to live the practice in community, to experience the practice outside of the structure of formal retreats, and to explore ways of bringing continuity of practice into our daily lives as we meditate together while sharing our daily tasks.

Our vision is to explore the lived experience of Kalyāamittatā, to provide the freedom to practice with what is familiar, but also the encouragement to practice with the unfamiliar, to venture close to the edge of the precipice, and to share our discoveries new and old. We have lifetimes of experience to share in this community of special friends.

In this same spirit of friendship, the Loretto Maryholme Retreat Centre has extended an invitation to their Solstice celebration on Friday evening, 21 June.

Space is limited, so please express your interest as soon as possible. Contact .
