UL Podcast 207: Practicing Silence in a Noisy World

an unhurried living community podcast practices silence Feb 14, 2022

Today on the Unhurried Living Podcast, we’re talking about the spiritual practice of silence. We’ve heard lots of authors and spiritual writers talk about how important the practice of silence is, but a whole lot of us struggle to figure out exactly how that might work in our actual lives.

We feel too busy. Or we feel there’s too much to do to spend any significant time alone and quiet.

But the practice of silence is a place where we learn how to listen well, how to be more present to God, to others and to our own actual thoughts and intentions. It’s a place where we let the swirl of thoughts and feelings that fill us to gradually settle until we can be just a little more receptive, attentive and responsive to God.
