Right Speech

Right Speech

In this retreat, Vishvapani shows us how to engage in Right Speech by asking ourselves before we speak: Is it truthful? Is it effective? Is it beneficial? Is it kind? Speech, Vishvapani tells us, is a central part of being human—it's what connects us to the people we surround ourselves with. When practiced wisely, Right Speech can have powerful and transforming effects and allow us to express true wisdom and compassion.
