Quiet Space – Christine Valters Paintner 

May 9, 2016

“There is much emphasis on silence and listening closely, on only speaking when we have something to say, rather than trying to fill the quiet. Benedict knew we can hear things in the silence that otherwise gets drowned out with the daily hum. This was an issue even back in the sixth century long before our endless connectivity online.”
 — Christine Valters Paintner, PhD Illuminating the Way: Embracing the Wisdom of Monks and Mystics
