Sunday Sangha: Relational Meditation/Insight Dialogue Practice Group
With Janet Surrey
September 8 - December 15, 2019
Please join us for a morning of practice!
What would it mean to wholeheartedly face the magnitude of the growing threat to life on Earth? The Fall ID sessions will be dedicated to discovering and investigating what hinders our meeting and penetrating the full truth of the climate emergency, including the power structures that hold it in place. We will cultivate the factors of awakening (including mindfulness, tranquility, energy, joy, equanimity, and compassion) that might allow us together to touch and bear the actuality of the crises we are facing today. Coming face to face with each other and the facts of the climate emergency, we aspire to increase our capacity to engage skillfully and act wisely.
Insight Dialogue is a fully engaged relational meditation practice in the Theravāda Insight tradition, originally taught by Gregory Kramer. We welcome those new to the practice as well as those with much experience. We do suggest some prior meditation experience.
There will be periods of silent and relational practice, dhamma dialogue, and mindful movement.
All are welcome! No prior experience of Insight Dialogue is necessary, prior meditation instruction suggested.
Sessions in September will be led by Jan Surrey, Annie Hoffman, Peg McAdam, and Sarah Merin.
Insight Dialogue 2019 sessions will be Sept 8, Sept 29, Nov 10, and Dec 15.
