Contributions from seclusion

Joost van den Heuvel Rijnders

Theme month 'Get off your kisses! Engaged Buddhism': In this meditation we withdraw from the world for a while and isolate ourselves. After the meditation we return and we actively connect with the world again. Separating, going into retreat, is not an anti-worldly act, but a contribution to that world: we come back with attention, compassion and wisdom.
