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 traditional roots as silent meditation: developing mindfulness, compassion and insight, while investigating present moment experience.
During our weekend together, we will explore the six meditation guidelines that form the core of Insight Dialogue practice. These guidelines help establish and sustain the meditative qualities of mind while contemplating the Dharma together. We will engage in silent and guided meditation, with the majority of time spent engaging in meditative dialogue practice in dyads.
Nicola Redfern is an Insight Dialogue teacher with an extensive background in both Zen and Vipassana meditation. She has been trained to teach Insight Dialogue by founding teacher Gregory Kramer. 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. Nic has also taught Nonviolent Communication, and offers courses on unlearning racism.

A 2-day Non-residential Vipassana Meditation Retreat
At the still point of the turning world...Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is... –T.S. Eliot
This will be an opportunity to practice continuous mindfulness meditation in silence throughout the day—in sitting and walking meditation. In the silence we are freed from much of the daily barrage of stimulus that draws our attention outward, letting us delve deeply inward. Being aware of our experience from a place of stillness and equanimity allows us to see more clearly, and as insight deepens, compassion and wisdom can arise. This retreat is designed for beginners and experienced practitioners.
COST: No Cost Retreat - Donations to the teacher and Sangha are gratefully accepted. Retreatants will have the opportunity to offer dana (donations) to the teacher and to the Sangha at retreat’s end. The teacher will receive no other financial compensation.
