Three Day Insight Dialogue and Vipassana
Thu 18 – Sun January 21, course no. 18.01


Patricia Genoud-Feldman (English)
Insight Dialogue is an interpersonal meditation practice rooted in mindfulness and tranquility enabling insight to arise and providing a valuable means of integration of dharma in daily life. With this practice we extend the silent mode of meditation to the sphere of relationship through speaking and listening, when invited by the teacher. Specific instructions and contemplations will support the Insight Dialogue prac- tice which will be combined with traditional Vipassana meditation. The retreat will unfold in complete silence apart from the dialogue and the group interviews with the teacher. The retreat will be of most benefit to those with previous experience of meditation. Dialogues can be done either in English, German or French.


Fees CHF 245.- / Euro 223.-

Seven Day Secular Buddhist Retreat
Sat 15 – Sat September 22, course no. 18.21

Stephen and Martine Batchelor (English)
This retreat will seek to uncover what lies at the heart of the Buddha’s teaching and ask how such ideas might be interpreted and put into practice in today’s increasingly secular and interdependent world. Through readings of early Pali discourses, Stephen will consider how the words of Gotama still speak to us today, while Martine will focus on meditation practices as tools of awareness for daily living. This approach to the Dharma will draw inspiration from a variety of perspectives both classical and contemporary.
