Kindling the Light of Awareness: An Insight Dialogue Retreat
Janet Surrey and Florence Meleo-Meyer
Saturday, December 7; 9:30am-4:30pm
Suggested contribution: $25-50 registration + teacher donation
In this season of diminishing daylight, we cultivate and celebrate the light of awareness as we turn toward the darkness of night and winter. The words “make of yourself a light” are said to be the Buddha’s last words. In this daylong retreat, we will introduce the engaged co-meditation practice of Insight Dialogue and explore the flow and rhythms of practicing alone in silent practice and together in contemplative relational practice. We will explore the power of cultivating mindfulness, concentration and loving kindness in relationship and the depth and brightness of illumination when “two or more are gathered” with the shared aspiration of awakening. There will be periods of silent practice, Insight Dialogue, and mindful movement.
