An introduction to Insight Dialogue

Communication, a Path to Understanding 

Bhikku Sukhacitto & Janet Surrey

The focus on this retreat is using the form of Insight Dialogue in a safe and supportive space to explore mindful conversation and inquiry so our deeper truth can be heard and received enabling authentic relationship, understanding, and healing.

Insight Dialogue is an interpersonal meditation practice. It brings the mindfulness and tranquillity of silent meditation directly into our experience with other people. As humans, we are relational beings; as we begin to wake up, clarity and freedom can illuminate our relationships with others and we can touch the release of suffering together. Insight Dialogue rests on the foundation of silent practice, and includes speaking and listening as part of our meditation practice.

This retreat, led by Buddhist monk Ajahn Sukhacitto and Janet Surrey, will introduce the meditation guidelines of Insight Dialogue and offer an opportunity to explore Insight Dialogue, alongside the origins of suffering as well as the potential of cultivating the factors of awakening together, including mindfulness, concentration, equanimity, loving kindness and compassion. We will investigate Speaking and Listening as meditative practices held and nourished by the deep foundation of silent practice. There will be periods of silent practice, alternating with meditation together in dyads, triads and small groups.
