A Half-Day Online Insight Dialogue Retreat with Janet Surrey

In this retreat, we will explore the Four Noble Truths as the foundation for our meditation practice. Recognizing dukkha (stress) and the sources of stress in our lives and relationships, we can practice together to incline our bodies and hearts toward relaxation and release. The practice of Insight Dialogue, a relational meditation practice in the Theravada tradition, cultivates relational conditions which support and amplify the factors of mindfulness, serenity and release.

The guidelines of Insight Dialogue (Pause, Relax, Open, Attune to Emergence, Listen Deeply and Speak the Truth) will be introduced and practiced in relationship. We will address direct application of these guidelines to our relational lives beyond formal meditation practice.
