This retreat will introduce the meditation guidelines of Insight Dialogue and offer an opportunity to explore the possibilities of a fully engaged co-meditation practice. We will explore the origins of suffering as well as the great potential of cultivating together the factors of awakening, including mindfulness, concentration, equanimity, loving kindness and compassion. We will investigate Speaking and Listening as meditative practices held and nourished by the deep foundation of silent practice. There will be periods of silent practice, alternating with meditation together in dyads, triads and small groups.
The Buddha described spiritual friendship as the “whole of the holy life.” In this retreat we will contemplate the qualities and power of our fundamental human rationality and investigate our capacity for cultivating spiritual friendship in the service of awakening together on the Noble Eightfold Path.
