Insight Dialogue with Nicola Redfern

Mountain Cloud Zen Center is pleased to offer two Insight Dialogue events:  a six-week introductory series and a daylong workshop both led by Mountain Cloud member and Insight Dialogue teacher, Nicola Redfern.

Insight Dialogue, is an interpersonal meditation practice that brings together meditative awareness, the wisdom teachings of the Buddha, and the power of relationship.

Insight Dialogue Series
5 Monday Evenings 
September 2, 9, 23, 30 and October 7
and one Sunday Evening, September 15

During these six weekly classes, participants 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.

Attending the entire series will provide a fuller experience of Insight Dialogue, but all are invited to attend any of the classes to get a taste of this powerful meditative practice. If you plan to attend or have questions, text Nic Redfern at (505) 310-1114. No cost, dana gratefully accepted.
