On most of our retreats, we practice silence in the mornings until lunch. Other retreats are in full silence. See particular retreats for description.
Silence is not just being not talking, it is about developing an inner quality of stillness.
In silence, we engage with the meditation object in a more intimate way. We stop ‘chatting’ about the Dharma from our mouth and start listening to the Dharma from deep within our heart which gives us a special inner experience of the teachings we receive. Penetrating insights arise and since we are able to hold onto them with firm mindfulness we find Dharma experience pervades and nourishes our heart at a very deep level.
