Insight Dialogue is an interpersonal meditation practice that brings together meditative awareness, the wisdom teachings of the Buddha, and the power of relationship. It has the same purposes and traditional roots as silent meditation: developing mindfulness, compassion and liberating insight, while investigating present moment experience.
We will explore the six meditation instructions, or guidelines, that form the core of Insight Dialogue practice. These guidelines help establish and sustain the meditative qualities of the mind while reflecting on topics that encourage a direct and intimate inquiry into the dharma.
During our day together we will participate in…
- meditative dialogue practice
- silent meditation
- time in nature
… in order to deepen the essential meditative qualities that support inquiry into this shared human experience and touch the possibility of awakening alone and together.
Nicola Redfern is an Insight Dialogue teacher with an extensive background in Zen meditation. She has been trained to teach Insight Dialogue by guiding teacher Gregory Kramer and other senior Insight Dialogue teachers. With a strong belief that awakening is not simply a solo endeavor, she’s particularly interested in getting meditation off the cushion and fully integrated into life, work, and relationships, and activating the potential to wake each other up. Nic has taught Nonviolent Communication, and currently works with the sick and elderly in a caregiving role.
