Breathing in Silence
by Thich Nhat Hanh
Are you afraid of silence? Where does that fear stem from? What exactly are we so afraid of? Zen Master, Thich Nhat Hanh reminds us that while “We want to share; we want to receive. We busy ourselves all day in an effort to connect.” But what if we chose to sit still in silence, instead? Or perhaps simply breathe. Might we discover a deeper capacity to share and receive? In this blog post, he offers a guided meditation for conscious breathing to try next time you seek connection.
