Dialogue is a pooling of energy resources because looking into something – seeing, questioning, and discovering – is applied energy. – Toni Packer
Dialogue groups are offered in the afternoon during retreats. This is an open forum to explore anyone’s questions or observations as a group, listening and exploring meditatively and freshly. Retreat leader(s) are in attendance.
Dialogue groups also take place outside of retreat, usually on Tuesdays and Saturdays. This may vary depending on our work schedule—if you are planning a visit, please contact us to verify the schedule.
This conversation between Toni Packer and Lenore Friedman expresses the spirit of group dialogue.
