Event description

Description

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 wisdom and compassion into our relational lives through mindful speaking and mindful listening.

In this one-day workshop, we will explore the six guidelines of Insight Dialogue in conjunction with the classical Buddhist teachings on the Four Noble Truths. 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.

For more information about the practice of Insight Dialogue, please see https://metta.org/insight-dialogue-3/

This workshop is best suited to people with an established meditation practice, but previous Insight Dialogue experience is not required.

NOTE: Because the Insight Dialogue guidelines will be taught in sequence and much of the meditation is done in pairs, please plan to arrive on time and stay for the entire day

Cost: $30 + dana* early bird or $45 + dana* full price

The event cost covers a contribution to venue hire, travel costs etc, and there will be an opportunity to offer dana/donations for the teaching at the end of the workshop.

Food: Please bring your own lunch. Teas and herbal teas will be supplied.

Equipment: Chairs and sitting cushions will be provided, but please bring a shawl or blanket for warmth

*Dana

In most Buddhist traditions the teachers are not paid to teach. Instead, the teachings are given on a 'dana' basis – dana being the Pali word for generosity or giving freely. At the end of the course, participants are invited to reciprocate this generosity by offering dana to support the teacher.
