2018 NewYr’s ID Retreat pending for UpComing Events

New Year’s Insight Dialogue Retreat

Touching the Possible:
Living Peace

With Phyllis K. Hicks and the Triangle Insight Practice Community


January 4-7, 2018

As humans we are exquisitely sensitive, every moment awash in a sea of contact. Touching and being touched, feeling, perceiving, and thinking, we create our world. Learning how to cultivate mindfulness in the flow of daily life and relationships is a profound resource for peace and wise action.

In this Insight Dialogue retreat we will practice taking refuge in awareness, wisdom, and spiritual friendship (Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha). We will investigate obstacles to friendship and beloved community, internally in the heart-mind, and externally in social constructions. Cultivating Lovingkindness, Compassion, Appreciative Joy and Relational Equanimity, we will explore foundations for peace, possibilities for courageous personal and collective action, and the benefits of deep companionship on the Noble Eightfold Path.
The retreat will be held in Noble Silence except for the Insight Dialogue sessions. We will alternate periods of silent meditation practice, Insight Dialogue, mindful movement and time in nature.
This retreat is both an introduction to Insight Dialogue and an opportunity to deepen practice.  For more information contact Mary Grisby at @triangleinsight.org.
