slowing down, and digital detoxification is a growing Trend. In a time of permanent availability, more and more people to technology-free days or even whole holiday, in order to free themselves from their Gadgets and Smartphones. A popular Option is called the Silent Retreats are, therefore, time-outs, in which participants abstain for several days to Talk, meditate and if possible without technology living.

Also Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey recently returned from a ten day Silent Retreat in Burma. Now he shares in a series of Tweets the details of his experience with his 4 million followers. He loves the country and its inhabitants, the people were full of joy, and the food was fantastic, so Dorsey.

violence on social media stoked

Many Twitter users pushes the oxygen. That Dorsey praises the country and its people, not to mention the persecution of the Muslim minority of Rohingya, can you find distasteful and ignorant. The military in Burma is strongly opposing the minority, hundreds of thousands of people were forced to flee since last year out of the country, thousands died.

The New York Times Journalist Liam Stack is not pointed out on Twitter that Dorsey going to do in a country holiday, the last year, have committed a genocide, but that this was specifically driven by misinformation and hatred spread by the government through social media. Especially Facebook is said to have played a Central role.

"How do I end Suffering?"

Dorsey was the number of contributions with an explanation of the meditation technique for Anger: "Vipassana is a technique and practice, in order to identify themselves," he wrote. "It was discovered 2500 years ago by Gautama Buddha through rigorous scientific self-experiments, to answer the question: How do I end my Suffering?"

A Twitter user writes: "Jack Dorsey is 4.5 billion dollars and the gall to ask the question has to be able to complete, how he will be Suffering. This in a country, the genocide of the Rohingya Muslims commits."

another user suggested, Dorsey would start to pay enough taxes to end his Suffering. One other user 117 indicates that Dorsey complains in his narration, how often he had been stabbed during a Meditation within ten minutes of mosquitoes (times).

"He didn't mention the hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims who fled Burma in the midst of a state-sponsored ethnic cleansing action," said the woman. The U.S. Portal "Quartz" draws the conclusion: "If the Meditation to make the practitioner more aware and compassionate, seems to Dorsey to be a failure."


Dorsey shares on Twitter also, as he had in the meditation camp live: "Very simple." During the ten days he had dispensed with everything: devices, reading, Writing, physical education, music, intoxicants, meat, Talk, or even eye contact with others. For this, the stay was free: Everything will be donated to the meditators of charities.

have not Entirely deprived of Dorsey, but the technology is now being criticized on Twitter. Because on his Apple Watch, and the Oura-Ring, sleep tracker, have not waived the Twitter-in-chief. He have this put in the Airplane mode, stresses Dorsey. On Twitter he posts however, evaluations of the Gadgets. "During my best meditations I had the slightest of fluctuations in the heartbeat. If I was not focused, jumping around this much," he writes. Particularly, he refers to his quality of sleep in the last night of the Retreat. Because his resting heart rate was consistently below 40:

The second day of the Trip was also his best: He had over paid for one hour only on his breathing and nothing thought of, Dorsey. On the eleventh day, he didn't want to hear the music of his favorite musician Kendrick Lamar.

For this try to want to his experience to quantify, was mocked in the Twitter-in-chief. "What says the most about Jack Dorsey, is his Faith to its proximity to enlightenment about a Apple watch measure" mocked this Twitter user:

The Portal "Quartz" recalls that Dorsey did not understand the purpose of the Exercise. Spiritual practice could not be quantified and measured. The term "best Meditation" is so problematic. (Tages-Anzeiger)
