We Are

A Global Community

The Insight Dialogue Community is a global community dedicated to the practices of relational Dhamma as a vehicle for awakening together. Our mission is to share teachings and practices that incorporate a relational understanding of the Buddha’s teachings for the benefit of all.

Introducing the Queer Insight Dialogue Sangha

The newly formed Queer ID Sangha is pleased to announce the creation of an online affinity space for LGBTQIA+ identifying relational dharma practitioners around the world to practice and share experience, support, learnings, and care. 

Research Publications On Insight Dialogue and the Interpersonal Mindfulfulness Program

A recent study in the journal Mindfulness provides evidence of the benefits of Insight Dialogue practice. Other publications consider the feasibility of the Interpersonal Mindfulness program.

Response to Systemic Racism

The Insight Dialogue Community stands with our Black, Indigenous, and People of Color communities to work towards ending systemic racism.

What Practitioners Have to Say

“Insight Dialogue practice is something special, such a rich opportunity where awareness and deep insights arise naturally and easily. The conditions of practicing with another naturally bring about heightened awareness and interesting phenomenon to observe that result in essential wisdom for the path of Dhamma.”

What Practitioners Have to Say

“In Insight Dialogue practice we enter a space for truth to shine forth through each of us – in the here and in the now.”

What Practitioners Have to Say

“It is the Pause, Relax, Open and the acceptance intrinsic in these guidelines that has allowed me to stop railing against what is. It has allowed me to be more present in my life and more intimate in my relationships.”

What Practitioners Have to Say

“I often gain more insight into the felt experience of suffering and the possibility of freedom from suffering in one relational meditation practice than I do from hours of individual meditation.”

Greg K.

What Practitioners Have to Say

“I am so grateful to Insight Dialogue for helping see more clearly the habit mind in its obvious and more subtle forms of reactivity, and to recognize that what feels ‘right’ is to empty the space of this distracting ‘clutter’ and be available to whatever emerges.”

What Practitioners Have to Say

“There is boundless gratitude for the continuing life-changing deep insights from my very first experience with Insight Dialogue. For me, I believe this is because of the direct experience of the Dharma that arises through relational practice.”

What Practitioners Have to Say

“Deep gratitude for this community – … this has been life changing, and continues to be so for me (and thereby for my family). I can trace one potentially life changing decision I made directly using pause and attune to emergence. 

As someone who is possibly neuro-diverse, this has provided an access to the Dhamma that was missing in silent/individual practice.”
