Insight Dialogue Sangha

with Bart van Melik

Second & Fourth Wednesdays of Every Month | 8:00am – 9:30am ET
Online via Zoom until further notice 

Please Note: the sangha is on an extended Summer Hiatus.
We will update this page with information about the return to sangha late in September.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, NYI is transitioning into online programming.

Please check our website calendar for further updates regarding this sangha and other programs.

Insight Dialogue taps into the enormous power, wisdom and compassion that co-arises when people gather with the intention to be mindful. We meditate in dialogue and reflect on Buddha’s teachings to gain insight into how relational suffering is created and how we can release this suffering.

All are welcome!

These mornings provide an opportunity to apply the teachings of mindfulness and compassion directly to interpersonal relationships and communications as well as within the context of daily life situations and universal themes. The format offers community connection, alongside meditation and facilitated activities that include speaking, listening, and relating. Learning to connect with greater presence opens up possibilities for ease, joy, and healing. And for those committed to the Buddhist path, these practices help deepen the application of teachings to daily life.
