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.


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 UK Time) -please join 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!

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 !!

In 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.”

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

November continues mornings 7-7.30/ evenings 10.30-11 (uk time) thanks to those that joined the Social Time and Silent Days so far:

November 25th 5-6pm uk tea hour same room, please come by/ My silent day Sunday 27th

Resting is a quiet resistance to the idea that we are not doing enough 

I am enough
I have enough
Resting restores me to my best possible self 

Verena Bottcher

Cure Me with quietness
Bless me with peace
comfort my heaviness,
Stay me with ease,
Stillness in solitude
send down like dew,
mine armour of fortitude
Piece and make a new;
that when I rise again
I may shine bright
as the sky after rain
Day after night

thank you Jasmine for this one 🙂

  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 🙂
