Silence and Sound
How do we deal with the never-ending stream of sound? Why can it drive us up the wall? And why can silence be even more crazy-making?
Many people focus their awareness on sound as a negative thing, as noise. But in every sound, there’s silence. It’s a silence we cannot hear, only feel.
Silence isn’t the absence of something, but the presence of everything, like in white light. From within your silence within, listening becomes easier.
In this masterclass, we’ll work with the sound in every silence, and the silence in every sound. The world on its head—with new and refreshing insights. Or, as Henriette Roland-Holst wrote:
“Nature’s silence knows many sounds.”
