Rumi says:  I am closing the door of speech and opening a secret way to the world of silence.


Learning how to appreciate simply being, and learning how to still the mind is greatly assisted through becoming familiar with silence.  We tend to shy away from it because the personality self doesn’t appreciate the nuances and has so much to say about everything and would much rather stay noisy.


Our Friend will teach about inhabiting the space of silence so we can hear the gentle voice of wisdom and experience the spaciousness and peace that silence can offer.  We will be increasing the times of shared silence within the Retreat so we can practice and discover for ourselves the beauty of expanding into the presence of Spirit and resting in the Silence.


Rumi says: Your Love has brought us to this silence where the only obligation is to walk slowly through a meadow and look.
