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.

August holidays

*** from the 4th-8th of August I am on a retreat and the silent meditation times are crossing these morning and evening so I will silent offline 🙂 in addition from the 9th -14th I take an annual camping trip and it’s possible the lack of internet reception will see me offline also -***

thank you for making use of this space anyway


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! 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 !!

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

July continues mornings 7-7.30/ evenings 10.30-11 (uk time) nice to see those that came to the Social Time and Silent Day in June,
July social Friday 29th 5-6 uk and quiet day Sunday 31st if you’re interested let me know

We need to find peace, and it cannot be found in noise and restlessness. It is a friend of silence, see how nature trees, flowers, grass grow in silence, see the stars, the moon and the sun, they move in silence. We need silence to be able to touch souls.

Mother Teresa

There is a great love in the silence that surrounds us, can we let our being be a mirror

  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 🙂
