Our relationship with silence is one of our most complex. Silence is both the foundation of all creation and a weapon of mass destruction.

Our relationship with silence is one of our most complex. Silence is both the foundation of all creation and a weapon of mass destruction. We each bear a great responsibility for how we use silence to the betterment or detriment of ourselves and our communities. Whether tuning out or tuning in, how we engage with silence has the power to either separate us from ourselves and each other or to connect us deeply with the Universe.
