Insight Dialogue is a co-meditative practice specifically bringing mindfulness into relationship, including speaking and listening. Using the methods of Insight Dialogue, clinicians develop increased awareness of their co-created interpersonal patterns, and thereby deepen their personal and professional presence. Using the story of the historical Buddha’s wife as an anchoring example, this talk explores the foundations and significant implications of interpersonal resonance for healing and clinicians’ harnessing presence as a relational unity. Clinical applications for the therapy relationship will be discussed and demonstrated.
