Dear friends,

It is our great pleasure to inform you that Insight Dialogue teachers Beth Faria and Dave Leggatt will again be leading a retreat at Fa Hong Monastery over Christmas and New Year. We are so excited! Please join us in this rare opportunity to have an in-person Insight Dialogue retreat in Hong Kong!

Insight Dialogue is a practice aiming to cultivate freedom from suffering through relational Dhamma, kindness, and compassion.  Insight Dialogue harnesses the power of relationship to amplify, refine, and accelerate the development of mindfulness. It helps the wisdom of Dhamma to enter the heart and mind in an immediate and embodied way.

The 12 day retreat period will be divided up into 3 sections to cater to different groups:

1) 22nd-26th December: 5 day retreat for those who are new to Insight Dialogue. English with Cantonese translation.

2) 27th-31st December: 5 day retreat for those with Insight Dialogue experience. English only (Cantonese translation may be offered, subject to the availability of translation resources).

3) 1st-2nd January: 2 day extension for Insight Dialogue facilitators and peer group leaders. English only.

Depending on your experience, you may join one of the 5 day retreats, while experienced ID practitioners may combine 2 or all 3 sections into a longer retreat period.

In the retreat, we will practice ID in a residential setting to settle into the practice of the Insight Dialogue Guidelines. For those with experience, you will further deepen in the 3 Bases - mindfulness and meditative qualities of the mind, wholesome relational qualities and wisdom. Daily silent practice and outdoor mindful working and movement will be part of the retreat too.

We serve healthy vegetarian food at the monastery.

Teachers: Beth Faria (online) and Dave Leggatt (in person)

Prerequisite: These retreats are for experienced meditators and Insight Dialogue practitioners with a regular meditation practice. Please ensure the following conditions are met if you would like to attend.

● Regular individual meditation practice

● To avoid disruptions, all participants must attend at least one of the 5 days sections of the retreat in full.

● Experienced Insight Dialogue practitioners would have completed an Introduction to Insight Dialogue (or similar) course and have a regular Insight Dialogue practice.


● To cover the costs of food, hiring a cook and facilities for the retreat, there will be a fee of HK$250 per day. So if you are attending 5 days, then the fee will be HK$1250 for the five days. Monastics can join on donation basis. For those who need financial support, you can email us.

● Since the teachers are traveling to Hong Kong and offering these precious teachings out of their own generosity, you will also be invited to donate to them separately.
