The Gift of Silence

A Ted Talk by Nick Seaver titled “The Gift of Silence” discusses the 18 months of silence he and his wife undertook for the purpose of scientific research on meditation. In the video, he explains what silence and solitude do to the mind and makes a case for why others should do the same but on a smaller scale. Seaver also highlights the challenges of practicing silence and the benefits one can gain.
