This week we engage in conversation with each other. Mitali is back from her six day Vipassana retreat (silent meditation) and Kinnari is back in San Francisco where she welcomes the quietness of a gentle city after the chaos of spending several weeks in Mumbai, India.
Click on the purple button “Listen” above and hear us share our experiences on getting back to “real life” and how we are continuing to work on building quietness into our lives.
“Silence is absence, or it’s an instrument. It can be avowed and entered like a cloister, or dispensed as “treatment.” Silence is the screen for our shadow play. Porter of desire, fear, mental noise. It is golden, or it is violence. It is the fence around wisdom, the scaffold holding the poet’s broken lines. It speaks the unfinished conversations of the sleep-deprived. But so long as there is a listener there to hear it, silence always means.”
