The power of speech

This Sunday, Michael led a very timely discussion on the power of speech, as seen from the Buddhist tradition where Wise Speech (or “Right Speech”) is a very important part of the eightfold path.

Here’s the link to Oren J Sofer’s talk “Speech as Foundation and Insight”, which we listened to during the sitting.

Michael writes:

Particularly meaningful for me is his placing a subtle understanding of Right Speech into the context of a Path which itself offers a taste of freedom, in a world of relationship.
