Quiet space and silent days

the quiet space is ‘open door’ to let you enter if you’re the first person without need for a host. On occasion if I’m unable to connect- I’ll think of you there.

my thoughts to all caught in the violence in Ukraine/ and to all caught in violent conflict

I turn to the words of Thich Nhat Hanh:
“Each moment is a chance for us to make peace with the world, to make peace possible for the world, to make happiness possible for the world.”


“Root out the violence in your life, and learn to live compassionately and mindfully. Seek peace. When you have peace within, real peace with others is possible.”


Thanks for stopping in,

these are complicated times , maybe this helps, I know it helps me.

I’m planning on doing half an hour quiet time every morning and evening through 2022 and opening it up to anyone who feels they’d like to join (7-7.30am/10.30-11pm) -please join me anytime to share some silence followed by a short reading by different writers on peace, silence, mindfulness (see foot of the page for today’s)…: come meditate/relax/chill/downtime/journal/read/drink tea -nothing expected except quiet of course!! more about it in this video

There may be times I can’t get connection to open the room – if I’m away traveling this sometimes happens – I’ll try and preempt this with a note above, if this is the case – I’ll be quiet with you offline !!

Sessions are silent with a reading at the end – this has settled to be the way since I made this intro video.

If you’re interested and have more questions let me know

May continues mornings 7-7.30/ evenings 10.30-11 (uk time) nice to see all that came to the Social Time and Silent Day in April 🙂

Silent Day May Sunday 22nd (get in touch if you’re interested)
Social hang out drink tea -in May Friday 27th 5-6 uk (in the same room as quiet space)

maybe see you 🙂

Sometimes on Instagram, always on Zoom


there’s a waiting room, stop there, I’ll open it at 7am and 10.30pm uk (or a few minutes after)

At the end of each session I read some pages from my current read about peace/mindfulness and quiet.

Latest is: Zen And The Art of Saving the Planet

  1. Many thanks 4 a very peaceful time. it was difficult to do, but a lovely way to end a busy day & grateful that I am here now after a difficult year. Our choirs are learning a beautiful Ukrainian lullaby which gives us hope that peace will come soon & the war will stop. Bless you, Joe. with fond affection.

    1. hello you are so welcome anytime – silence can be hard I know for me I find a confident silent friend inside after a while, with familiarity and practice 🙂
