Abiding Abbess of Green Gulch Farm Furyu Schroeder comments on Right Speech.

Dear Dharma Friends,
Today’s fast-paced and painfully polarized world presents special challenges for all of us committed to the Dharma practice of “right speech.” For most of us this is particularly true in the digital realm where there is a strong impulse to react immediately.
