Today Vishvapani Blomfield continues his online Right Speech retreat with “Communicating with Meaning,” an examination of our intentions across all forms of communication, suggesting the primacy of intention over subject matter. Vishvapani encourages us to reflect more fully on our inner values and motivations that inform our speech, enabling us to better abstain from frivolous, meaningless speech, and direct language in a highly charged, refined way that is conducive to genuine communication.
