Ajahn Brahm gives a talk on the practice and benefits of seclusion.
According to Ajahn Brahm, everyone deserves a ‘retreat’ – to pause mentally and physically. Retreating from the busyness of life leads to moments of silence, peace and contentment. This in turns helps to instill qualities that make one’s life more meaningful and fulfilled.
This is the last dhamma talk by Ajahn Brahm prior to the 3 months of the Rains Retreat. The Rains Retreat is a tradition going back to the time of the Buddha when monks and nuns stop travelling and spend time developing the peace of their meditation practice. In this talk Ajahn Brahm talks about how we all need a place in time and space to retreat to and find peace within.
