*** 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

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