Event Dates: November 30, 2018 –  December 2, 2018

In Triratna, we do a lot of things in groups. We emphasize friendship as a path of practice and engage in loads of communication on a variety of levels: as friends, in study groups, chapters, GFR groups, Center Councils, work kulas, volunteer projects, on retreats, and so on. On this weekend retreat we will explore how we construct a sense of self in relation to others, and how we can loosen up that sense of self through reflective dialoguing in pairs and small groups. The reflecting will be done through the practice of Insight Dialogue, a method of interpersonal communication developed by Gregory Kramer from the IMS tradition. There will be lots of opportunity for meditation, ritual, and connecting with one another.

Please be aware that the Insight Dialogue exercises involve lots of intimate, face-to-face conversations with one or more people. Be prepared to be personally challenged!

Please book ahead of time to reserve your place!

* At Aryaloka, we strive to make our programs available to everyone regardless of their financial circumstances. Our fee structure allows you to pay according to your means. The Sustaining price is for people comfortably paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford the occasional meal out and movie. The Sustaining price level also helps Aryaloka offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend. Any payment above this price is a tax-deductible donation. Mid-Level prices are for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Aryaloka’s operating costs. The Base-Level price is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge. Those whose circumstances are not included above can call the office to arrange alternate pricing.

* Retreat participants are asked to work together to prepare and clean up after meals and to help with general cleanup at the end of the retreat.
