Insight Dialogue
Bart van Melik
Fee by donation

October 13, 2013
06:00 pm - 08:00 pm

Second Sunday of each month

Insight Dialogue is an interpersonal meditation practice bringing the mindfulness and tranquility of silent meditation directly into our experience with other people. To learn more about the practice please visit

The evening begins with silent meditation practice, followed by gentle mindful movement, and then shifting into dyad practice where interpersonal mindfulness is explored with a partner in response to a contemplation that is offered. The dyad practice is optional so that anyone who chooses to remain in silent practice may do so.

Fee by donation: Suggested starting donation is $20 but whatever you offer is greatly appreciated and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds. For this event  all donations are split evenly between the teacher(s) and NYI.
