I went to an Insight Dialogue retreat with another Sangha member in early May. We both had very unique experiences and shared them with the Sangha. The Sangha agreed that it would be beneficial to spend some time exploring Gregory Kramer’s methodology in July. In preparation, we’ll spend June looking into how each of us view Right Speech, discussing how to practice with contemplations and exploring some of the difficulties practicing in relationship.
According to Gregory relationships can be the source of our greatest joys and, paradoxically, our greatest suffering. Thus they are a particularly rich ground for spiritual practice. Insight Dialogue brings mindfulness directly into the stresses of relationship. As we calm down and begin to release old habits of relating, understanding and communication improves naturally.
