An Insight Dialogue Non-residential Retreat
Led by Sharon Beckman-Brindley

When we encounter stresses in our lives, we often dismay, imagining that someone or something - somewhere or somehow - must be WRONG. Our meditation practice, however, invites us to see and investigate these moments as blessings: powerful practice and learning opportunities. With the Dharma as guide, we can learn to open to difficulty as a wonderful and happy practice, allowing it to open us to ever deeper and more creative possibilities and to steadfast and peace-filled presence in our relations with our internal and external worlds. 

This 3 Day non-residential meditation retreat will combine periods of silent sitting and walking meditation with the relational meditation practice of Insight Dialogue (ID), a practice of speaking and listening that brings together the deep wisdom teachings of Buddhism with our everyday relationship. ID has the same traditional roots and purposes as silent meditation: mindfulness, compassion and liberating insight while investigating together our lived present moment (relational) experience.
