Adhisthana Retreats

Event Title: Speaking from Silence

Led by Dhiraprabha, Srisambhava

In the centre, white hot and leaping like a fish from water, is the awesome utterance that is true, helpful and timely: the coming together of wisdom and compassion in speech…

This retreat is an opportunity to explore ‘Just Sitting and Speaking from Silence’ with a group of Order members. We will experiment with ways to develop faith in this process and its fruits. When the Sangha is truly ‘gathered’ it is as if individual identities have been left behind with the shoes and hats, enabling those present to be receptive to a deeper truth in themselves and in each other. The vocal expression of such truth can be experienced as 'Perfect Speech'. A few insightful beneficial words, dropping into the pool of receptive silence, can have real transformative power. Achieving this depth of communication in an Order meeting can unite us and inspire us in our Going for Refuge. We will also explore using the practice in Dharma study and as a tool to enable collective decisions to be made with wisdom and in harmony.
