About this Event

Cultivating Joy and Resilience in Challenging Times

Bristol Zen Centre is pleased to welcome insight meditation teacher Jill Shepherd for a three-day non-residential on line retreat, co-taught with Insight Dialogue teacher Jane Cutler. 

Weaving together the practices of zen, insight meditation and Insight Dialogue, we will explore ways to meet life’s joys and challenges with more balance and ease, while embracing the reality of our rapidly changing world and the need for an appropriate response. 

In support of developing this resilient heart and mind, our time together will include silent and guided sitting meditation, movement meditation and sessions of Insight Dialogue (relational practice meditating together in pairs or small groups). 

This retreat is best suited to people who have some experience of silent practice, but prior Insight Dialogue experience is not required.

For more information about the practice of Insight Dialogue, please go to www.metta.org

Jill Shepherd began practicing insight meditation in Thailand in 1999, and since that time has lived and worked at several meditation centres and monasteries in the US, Australia, England, and Thailand. She recently spent seven years on staff at the Insight Meditation Society (IMS) in Barre, Massachusetts, and is a graduate of the IMS / Spirit Rock teacher training program in the US, under the guidance of Joseph Goldstein and Gil Fronsdal.

Jane Cutler is a psychotherapist and lives in Bristol, UK. Jane has had a meditation practice since 1972 and been a zen student since 1999. She has been practicing and facilitating Insight Dialogue since 2008. With her partner Jane Whitehead she offers a program of zen and Insight Dialogue evening practice, on line practice, day long and weekend retreats in the Bristol area.

Again and again we find ourselves in uncharted waters. The coronavirus pandemic. Climate change. Supporting resilience in these troubled times through Insight Dialogue and other skillful means is increasingly at the heart of offering practice. FFI visit www.bristolzen.org
