Teaching Community

The Insight Dialogue Teaching Community is a community of dedicated practitioners who are directly engaged in offering the relational Dhamma practice of Insight Dialogue. Our mission includes the intention to create mutually beneficial learning possibilities, establish practice cohorts, be a resource for existing cohorts, and support the development of an interconnected and vibrant international practice community. Consider this community as a ‘home’ for engaging with others interested in supporting the skillful offering of Insight Dialogue. For a detailed description of the teaching community vision, please refer to the document entitled Possibilities of Engagement. Any questions related to the Insight Dialogue Teaching Community may be directed to info@insightdialogue.org.

Insight Dialogue Retreat Teachers are recognized as qualified to teach and co-teach Insight Dialogue at all levels, including long residential retreats. They maintain active connection with the Teachers Council and the retreat teacher cohort, engaging as spiritual friends, co-teacheand resources for learning.
Insight Dialogue Teachers lead non-residential practice opportunities and, when authorized, lead 2 to 3-day residential weekends. Actively engaged in a mentor-supported cohort of spiritual friends, they are committed to developing competency in offering Insight Dialogue.
Insight Dialogue Facilitators regularly offer non-residential group practice (local or online) and participate in a mentor-supported cohort where they practice and develop facilitation skills.
Guest teachers from diverse traditions are invited by Insight Dialogue teachers to co-teach specific offerings. Their voices bring perspective, and an expanded understanding and lived experience of the Dhamma.
