There is a certain aliveness that comes when we speak honestly in a
vulnerable, yet clear communication. It aligns us with our truth and we
become authentic and wisely powerful. But it's often not easy to do that.
I've based this talk on my son Adam's final thesis from Naropa University
where he recently graduated with a B.A. in somatic and contemplative
psychology. I was quite impressed and moved by it. It made me think. I
wanted to share it as we explore Wise Speech together.
We spend much of our life on our way somewhere else, driven by the sense that something is missing or wrong. This talk explores the suffering that arises from our addiction to busyness and "doing," and the healing, loving and wisdom that arise when we take refuge in presence.
