"2014 was amazing! I sat in ten days of silence within the past two weeks, and I feel like part of my life has completely changed. I'm not the same person: my world is very similar, but I see it in a completely new way, and I'm having some troubles actually adjusting to the way that others are living and I just see everything more clearly than I have before. That's the highlight of my year."
"Tell me about the ten days of silence."
"It's called Vipassana meditation, and you go there as a new student and you sit for ten days, 'noble silence.' You can't bring anything to read or write, anything to do other than sit there and listen to your own mind. It's a really transformative process. It's incredible."
