Donations for visiting the space welcome and go toward the running costs, but there is no expectation.
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 2023 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!
I’m also interested in holding Silent Days, I aspire to do 1 a month and would love to do them alongside people sometimes, with a schedule and space for sharing more here, let me know if you’re interested.
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.”
February continues mornings 7-7.30/ evenings 10.30-11 (uk time)
February Social Time last Friday of the month 5-6pm uk
thanks to those that joined so far:
Social Time is an hour of hanging out in the space with tea toward the end of the month and more on my silent days here
maybe see you 🙂
Last 2 quiet quotes:
Silence is a door, open, enter, stay and return changed.
Benjamin Alire Sáenz
When all feels too full, let the mind let go into quiet, remind yourself of it’s restful state and it’s wisdom. Thoughts can lead us in circles, silence can bring us back to our center

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.
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 🙂
