PRESENTED IN ENGLISH (French-friendly)
For beginners or seasoned practitioners who are interested in mindfulness and interpersonal meditation practices that serve human connection, insight and compassion. Insight Dialogue harnesses the power of mutual support and interpersonal responsiveness in service of clear understanding and release.

Insight Dialogue is an interpersonal meditation practice that brings together three basic elements, each powerful in their own right: meditative awareness, the wisdom teachings of the Buddha, and human’s natural relatedness. Insight Dialogue has the same purposes and traditional roots as silent meditation—developing mindfulness, compassion, and liberating insight. As such, it is conceived of as a component of a broader “whole life” path of cultivation intended to support harmonious and liberating life and community. Although Insight Dialogue is grounded in the Buddha’s early teachings (Pāli Canon) and the practice of Insight or Vipassanā meditation, people of all faiths and backgrounds are welcome and find benefit in the practice.
