Special Retreat: Insight Dialogue – Finding the World Beyond Self with Dave Leggatt

Thursday 27/4 -14:00 -Saturday 29/4 -17:00 in Mashiv Nefesh – Clil

Finding the World Beyond Self

The "Selfing" I – is the way of suffering, for ourselves and for the world. Releasing our attachment to the conceit of self and opening to the relational field allows us to experience the interconnectedness of all things and reveals a path of wisdom. Join us for this two day retreat and explore the power of Insight Dialogue to bring clear seeing and wisdom into this journey we share with all beings.

The six simple guidelines of Insight Dialogue create an interpersonal meditation practice that weaves together three elements — each powerful in itself — the cultivation of meditative awareness, the wisdom teachings of the Buddha (dharma), and the power of our natural relatedness. Insight Dialogue has the same purposes and roots as other meditation practices: developing mindfulness, compassion, and the release of liberating insight. The practice concentrates the power of relatedness in inclining us toward living our lives with awareness, wisdom, deep compassion and wise action. The retreat is meant for both new and experienced practitioners of Insight Dialogue.
