“Engaging Fully and Wisely” An Insight Dialogue Retreat and optional ‘sharing ID’ days
9 augustus @ 18:00 - 14 augustus @ 13:00€457 – €535
Insight Dialogue brings the Buddha’s teachings to life relationally in the body and heart as intuitive wisdom. Cultivating awareness of the habitual tensions that maintain suffering and learning new pathways of release establish us freshly in the present moment. Returning to loving presence is a source of strength and recovery in the midst of life’s challenges. It allows us to see clearly and engage wisely personally and socially.
The three bases of Insight Dialogue practice – meditation, wisdom, and relationship – form the foundation and a path for letting go and liberation. The retreat will be held in Social Silence (Noble Silence) as we explore the power of listening and speaking out of silence. There will be times of silent sitting, mindful movement, and dialogue in groups of 2 or more with guided contemplations.
This is an opportunity to encounter Insight Dialogue for the first time and for experienced ID meditators to deepen their practice. The retreat will be taught in English, however, Bart is a native Dutch speaker and will happily assist anyone who would benefit from help with translation. Prior silent meditation experience is required.
Direct following the retreat from 3 p.m. Friday 14th August until Sunday 16th August, Phyllis will be leading us in an additional offering: Sharing the practise of Insight Dialogue with Others.
If you are inspired to offer the practice to others in your local communities, you can register to continue with Phyllis for this post-retreat opportunity to cultivate skills and deepened your understanding of ID. Prior retreat attendance is a prerequisite. Phyllis is offering this extension with the support of the Insight Dialogue Community. There will be an opportunity to offer dana to the Insight Dialogue Teaching Community (IDTC) when we close.
Teachers: Phyllis Hicks and Bart van Melik
