Cultivating Inner Strength: An Insight Dialogue Program For BIPOC
Dates: Jan 24, 2021 - Feb 28, 2021
Online Course

Instructor(s): Tuere Sala

Course Navigation


Cultivation of a strong inner core is essential for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color attempting to navigate through our world while maintaining a connection with the Dhamma. Insight Dialogue is a relational practice that integrates meditative awareness, the wisdom of the Buddha’s teachings, and our natural human capacity for relatedness. When practiced together, these three qualities enable the cultivation of deep concentration and easeful embodiment, both of which are at the heart of inner strength and resilience. This online offering is a 6-week program for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, inviting those interested in learning the practice of Insight Dialogue as well as BIPOC practitioners experienced in Insight Dialogue who aspire to deepen their practice skills. 

Each week we will explore and practice with one of the six guidelines that make up the foundation of the practice.
