Returning to Love: An Insight Dialogue Retreat

With Phyllis K. Hicks and Anne Michel

June 12 - 17, 2020

Insight Dialogue brings the Dhamma to life relationally in the body and heart as intuitive wisdom. Cultivating awareness of the habitual tensions that maintain suffering and learning new pathways of release establish us freshly in the present moment. Returning to loving presence is a source of resiliency in the midst of life’s challenges and supports our capacity to see clearly and engage wisely personally and socially.

The three bases of Insight Dialogue practice – meditation, wisdom, and relationship – form the foundation and a path for unbinding. In the good company of other meditators, we begin to realize the power of solitude and communion in our lives.

This retreat combines silent practice with guided Insight Dialogue meditation, Dhamma talks, mindful movement, and time in nature, all within the container of noble silence. This is an opportunity to encounter Insight Dialogue for the first time and also for experienced ID meditators to deepen their practice. Free from habitual speech, free from online communications, and supported by nature, we experience the space of practice that moves wisely between words and the wordless.

Prior silent meditation experience is required.
