Nurturing Interior Silence in Our Lives

"The trees, the flowers, the plants grow in silence. The stars, the sun, the moon move in silence. Silence gives us a new perspective."  ~Mother Teresa

In life's rush, busyness, and noise, we may find ourselves yearning for the natural stillness within that is our spiritual birthright. Some of us may have lost touch with the knowing that this even exists in ourselves. This morning's experience will explore the deep and abiding qualities of silence that are fundamental to meditation and mindful living. In silence, we begin to find a new center from which to live.

We will explore:

  • Where does resistance to silence come from?

  • What obstacles impede befriending this natural aspect of being?

  • How may we introduce simple daily habits of silence into daily living?

  • What makes silence essential for spiritual growth and consciousness?
