Cultivating Relational Skills


JULY 2022:

Evening Session: Friday 01.07.
Full Days: Saturday 02.07. – Tuesday 05.07.
Evening Session: Friday 08.07.

Our lives are complex webs of social relationships and communication.
In all relationships, we find joy and tensions, appreciation, longing and suffering and a wish for things to be different. 

In this event, participants will cultivate the natural wisdom of awareness while listening and speaking. This dialogic meditation practice strengthens the ability to attune to one another, reveals how to recognise your innate capacity for empathy, deepens your listening skills and cultivates moment-to-moment awareness within a relationship. Therefore, relational mindfulness leads to being more fully present and caring – with others and with oneself.

Based on the relational meditation practice of Insight Dialogue developed by Dr. Gregory Kramer, our practice utilises a distinct method of cultivating mindfulness, concentration, and insight. This method incorporates the six guidelines of Insight Dialogue (pause, relax, open, attune to emergence, listen deeply, and speak the truth) whilst in contemplation with a partner or group.

The contemplation topics are universal and can be found in each person’s experience.

This intensive event offers an opportunity to deepen our meditation practice in the place we most often forget it: Our social interactions.

Learning Objectives

  • To deepen the practice of mindfulness meditation
  • To learn guidelines for increasing awareness in our interactions
  • To recognize habitual ways we react to stress and anxiety in relationship
  • To cultivate wholesome mind states and actions, and release unwholesome ones
  • To learn ways of listening to oneself and others more deeply

What to expect?

The way the form is offered allows participants to have direct experience of pausing out of habitual patterns of reactivity while face-to-face with another.

As the contemplations are carefully guided and timed, participants are able to observe the mental and emotional habits that are usually lost in the flow of stressful or even pleasant communications.

As practice deepens, calm concentration improves and insight arises naturally.

The intensive event will include silent, guided and dialogic meditations, body awareness practice similar to Qi Gong and group discussions.

Prerequisite

The Relational Mindfulness Intensive is open to all with a meditation background, including MBSR and MBCT graduates.

Quotation Mark ImagesDo you have the patience to wait until your mud settles and the water is clear? Can you remain unmoving until the right action arises by itself?

Lao Tzu

Quotation Mark ImagesThe goal of practice is always to keep our beginner’s mind… (which) includes everything within itself.

It is always rich and sufficient within itself. You should not lose your self-sufficient state of mind. This does not mean a closed mind, but actually an empty mind and a ready mind.

If your mind is empty, it is always ready for anything; it is open to everything.

Kabir

Quotation Mark ImagesThere is a certain kind of peace that is not merely the absence of war. It is larger than that…

The peace I am thinking of is the dance of an open mind when it engages another equally open one.

Toni Morrison

Quotation Mark ImagesIt is this long listening that gives rise to the sunlight of speech.

Saki Santorelli

Quotation Mark ImagesAs we make our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Marianne Williamson

Quotation Mark ImagesClarity arises when the mind is energetic, mindful, calm, spacious (Pause – Relax – Open) and unattached (Trust Emergence).
