Five Months of Silence

Filed under: Dharma, Meditation — jonathanfoust @ 9:59 am

There is an aspect of any spiritual discipline that entails restraint with awareness.  When we step away from habitual activity and pay careful attention to what arises and our relationship to it, we become more self aware.  This is a short piece on someone who practiced silence while on a five-month retreat.  It’s here on the Huffington Post.

Thanks, Janice, for the link.
