The Joy of Silence

Why do longer silences seem so scary? People shift uneasily in their seats, the air vibrates with uncertainty, and everyone looks down wrapped in anticipation. We run from silence in our minds and in our daily activities. Why do we feel the need to fill the silence with sound? With the practices of going “inward” and finding tranquility, our thoughts become the soothing sound to minimize silence. And bringing the awareness to the breath brings the mind into safety with the sound of the breath. Many of us have a love-hate relationship with silence even as we seek silence in our souls. We will expose silence. We will experience the joy of silence without the creeping anxiety to fill the silence void. We will practice exploring silence in different circumstances and learn that silence can feel safe, secure, and provide a foundation for a response rather than a reaction. Silence is a powerful signal of resilience and clarity. Join us for The Joy of Silence. This class will expand your comfort when interacting in personal and workplace relationships. Attend for yourself, with your team, or with members of your family conveniently on Zoom.
