Why struggle to open the door between us
when the entire wall is an illusion.
Read some testimonials from online programs with Saki Santorelli at the Institut Pleine Conscience.
As MBP teachers (Mindfulness-Based Programs), we understand the responsibilities of dialogue and inquiry and how the capacity to meet these challenges emerges directly out of our personal meditation practice. Offering opportunities for continuous growth as MBP teachers, the Institut Pleine Conscience is very pleased to host a highly experiential and personalized program into the heart of inquiry guided by Saki Santorelli. As a small group of MBP teachers we will have the opportunity to investigate what hinders and opens the dialogue and inquiry in our classrooms while cultivating new perspective about how to be in relationship with program participants.
The online format makes this day easily accessible. To create greater access to this unique training, two groups will be formed: the first group will take place on Saturday, January 28th, 2023; the second group will be on Sunday, January 29th, 2023. Each course will be limited to 20 people. You will be able to choose the day that suits you depending on availability when registering. It is also possible to register in both days.
« The content and format of this course is simple. Each day I’ll work with 18-20 people, offering individual feedback and suggestions. Across the day we’ll explore three domains:
- the source of inquiry
- the intimacy of inquiry
- the risk of inquiry
We’ll sit in a virtual circle just like our MBP participants. Listening, not knowing, and being present will be our guiding lights. Opening to an innate intelligence beyond our familiar patterns and habitual thinking, we’ll learn to inquire by living inside our knowing hearts: learning to ask, listen, await, respond, and wonder with another.
Devoid of template or technique, we’ll actively engage with one another in dialogue and inquiry as mindfulness practice. Here’s a taste of the day: Approaching the entire process as an intimate conversation…We’ll practice in small circles, exchanging roles as teachers and participants…We’ll listen…We’ll pause…We’ll wonder aloud about the nature of a question and its intention, about roads taken and not taken in our interchanges…We’ll experiment with rephrasing as of way of getting closer to what we really want to ask about…We’ll attune to the music of dialogue – the tempo, rhythm, and pitch of the exchanges as a means of creating simpatico, safety, and intimacy beyond the wall…We’ll offer feedback as we explore new ways of engaging in this heart-throbbing conversation as reality itself – a living, breathing reality transpiring within and between us.
The day is intended to be intimate, inspiring, and highly supportive of our individual and collective unfolding as students of MBPs. »
