The Way of Silence draws heavily on Buddhist teachings to cultivate the practice of “deep” listening: turning away from noise and distraction, paying attention, and embracing quiet. The Way of Silence embraces paradox: absence versus presence in silence. Dynamic tranquility. The all-oneness of aloneness. Humbly, trusting in God, you’ll practice emptying your mind in order to receive wisdom, insight, and understanding. You’ll learn to listen deeply, with a trusting heart—and you’ll joyously discover a new, interior freedom that will make you feel more vibrant, and more fully alive. Stock #: B53016

Not silent about The Way of Silence

I finished this short book in three settings. As I went along, I found several ideas intriguing and that will need more reflection on my part. I plan to re-read this slim book to see if I can go a bit deeper into the ideas proposed. Well worth reading and I look forward to my second approach.
