Insight Dialogue is an interpersonal meditation practice grown from the Vipassana tradition. Through dialogue,the mindfulness and tranquillity of traditional silent meditation is introduced into interaction with others.
This enables us to perceive, understand, and apply an acceptance of others and ourselves in the busyness of our
lives. As humans, we are creatures that are interrelated. As we awaken to this experience, insight, clarity, ease and joy flow into our relationship with others.
Bhante Sukhacitto is an Insight Dialogue Teacher. Born in Germany in 1963, he first came into contact with Buddhism in Thailand by attending a meditation retreat, offered through Wat Suan Mokkh, in 1986. He ordained there as a novice in 1989 and as a monk in 1990, returning to the west a few years later. Since then, he has lived at various monasteries, including Dhammapala Monastery in Switzerland and Amaravati Monastery in the UK.
On his first Insight Dialogue retreat in 2005, he was amazed by the powerful experience of meditating together with other people, leading him to join many more Insight Dialogue retreats. In 2010, he began his teacher training with
Gregory Kramer and others. In his experience, interpersonal meditation is an extremely helpful aid for the development of wholesome qualities.
In 2016, Bhante Sukhacitto founded and runs Kalyana Mitta Vihara or “House of Noble Friendship,” a small Dhamma Center in his hometown near Hannover, where relational practice is part of daily life.
