In the Acrobat (Sedaka) sutta, the Buddha teaches that caring for self IS caring for others, and caring for others IS caring for self. How do we practice both- especially when this feels conflictual, even impossible? How can the Buddha’s teaching be understood and practiced in our relational lives? In this half day retreat, the meditative guidelines of Insight Dialogue will be introduced as a foundation for contemplation of this paradox. Dilemmas, conflicts and potential resolutions will be investigated and embodied.
