Insight Dialogue is an interpersonal meditation practice. Based in vipassanā meditation, it brings the mindfulness and tranquility of traditional silent meditation practice into our interactions with others through dialogue. Instructions will introduce Insight Dialogue meditation guidelines step-by-step and guide participants into contemplative dialogue. We will also learn and practice a methodical form of reading meditation called Dharma Contemplation. Dhamma talks, silent meditation, and time in nature are integral to the retreat. Our practice will focus on the aggregates (khanda), and the practice of dhammanupassana, internally, externally, and both. For more information about Insight Dialogue, see the Metta Foundation website metta.org.
