Auckland Insight is a mostly peer-led group, and we rely on the support of community members to keep the group running. This gathering is an opportunity for supporters of Auckland Insight to come together with guiding teacher Jill Shepherd to learn about and share the rewards and challenges of being a facilitator, host, navigator and/or volunteer.

We will explore the process and practice of facilitation through a mix of talks, group discussion, dyad (pairs) practice and silent meditation. There will also be a thank-you lunch.

This gathering is open to anyone who has participated in Auckland Insight meetings in any capacity.

Note: No door sales. Registration will close 5:00 pm on Friday 28 July as we need to know numbers for catering purposes

In most Buddhist traditions the teachers are not paid to teach. Instead, the teachings are given on a 'dana' basis – dana being the Pali word for generosity or giving freely. At the end of the course, participants are invited to reciprocate this generosity by offering dana to support the teacher. Jill is an independent meditation teacher and is not financially supported by any meditation centre or Buddhist organisation. She relies on dana for her livelihood and pays for all the expenses incurred in offering a retreat, including some international airfares, herself.
