Insight Dialogue is an interpersonal meditation practice that brings the mindfulness and tranquillity of traditional silent meditation into our experience with others. Resting on the foundation of traditional Buddhist teachings, this practice offers a way to integrate our dedication to a path of wisdom and compassion with our relational lives.

In this one-day workshop, we will explore the six guidelines of Insight Dialogue in conjunction with the classical Buddhist teachings. Working together in pairs, we will use the power of relational meditation practice to understand the habits of heart and mind that lead to stress and distress, and how to free ourselves from those habits so that we can live with greater ease and happiness.

For more information about the practice of Insight Dialogue, please see the website: https://metta.org/insight-dialogue-3/

This workshop is best suited to people with an established meditation practice, but previous Insight Dialogue experience is not required.

Note: because the insight dialogue guidelines will be taught in sequence and much of the meditation is done in pairs, please plan to arrive on time and stay for the entire day. Please bring your own lunch. Tea and herbal teas will be supplied. Chairs will be available, but please bring your own meditation cushion or bench if you have one, and a shawl or blanket.

The ticket price covers only the cost of venue hire and other expenses associated with the cost of offering the workshop, including a contribution to Jill's airfares.

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.
