In this episode I have the pleasure of connecting with Gregory Kramer Ph.D. and Lucy Leu from the Metta Foundation, as we explore the emerging practice of Insight Dialogue. This relationally oriented form of meditation is based on the early teachings of the Buddha, but brings the qualities of mindfulness and concentration (which are usually cultivated through silent individual meditation) more directly into our face to face experience and interaction with other people. Many of the core principles of Insight Dialogue are discussed throughout the interview, but they are also pointed to and expressed in this actual conversation, which gives the interview an interesting twist! As a listener you are therefore invited to practice with us as we explore how our interpersonal lives can be a source of suffering and a genuin path to insight and liberation. Feel free to share your comments after the interview and check out the links below for more information about these topics.
