Silence

Find talks and articles

By An Anonymous Author

Spending time in silence is a very powerful way to support the deepening of calm and insight. Being together in this way allows us to explore a degree of solitude, while having the support of the group.

Silence fosters a sense of safety and refuge, even among people we do not yet know.

Through letting go of the familiar world of words we give ourselves space from the complexity of personal interaction, and can come to see our mind and its activity more clearly.

Insight into the way things are arises through experiencing life directly, rather than through language and concepts.
