What is your relationship with silence? Some think of silence as monochrome, or simply a romantic notion. For others, there may be great fear, a sense of boredom or puzzlement. Or maybe you are very experienced in silence, but are interested to explore further.
During our time we will explore different ways we can access a spaciousness that is transformative, silences that are content-filled, and engage with the God whose “first language was silence” (St John of the Cross).
