In our day-to-day lives, most of us are bombarded by sound and visual stimuli. We lurch from one activity to the next feeling stressed and overwhelmed. Messages from media, advertising and popular culture tell us that having more will help us find happiness, yet instead we feel overloaded and burnt out.
The Art of Silence offers us an antidote.
It explores how we can use silence as a strategy for living well; a guiding principle to help us reign in our chaotic lifestyles and redress the balance of this crazy, noisy world that we live in. We can embrace silence through quieting our environment, cultivating peaceful relationships, and by working with the mind to nurture an inner peace. Silence can give us the space we need to relax and become the happy, calm individuals we want to be.
