Today we begin the second week of Vishvapani Blomfield’s retreat on Right Speech. In “Communicating with Kindness,” Vishvapani encourages us to engage in full, heartfelt communication by relating to others from a motivation of love. To walk the path of Right Speech, it is not enough to set out simply to tell the truth; we must also be able to communicate with love and affection. This involves following the Buddha’s example of communicating with others not just in terms of their limitations but directly with their human potential.
