Listen to the Silence is an open invitation to wander a forest path or sit beside a mountain creek, letting the beauty of nature wash over you. See the world with new eyes as you learn compassion from a bug, feel the wind sweep away the ache in your heart, or let the gentle eyes of a beautiful black dog erase your fears. Here you will find peace and new hope in the silent wisdom of trees, spiders, and sunlit moss. In this thoughtful and inspiring blend of prose-poetry, meditation, and narrative, you'll share the author's intimate relationship with the Earth and its inhabitants, and experience the transcendence possible as you enter the world of nature and simply listen. Whether you read Listen to the Silence in one sitting or a page at a time, you'll find a new awareness of what lies outside your door-and inside your heart. "Listen to the Silence is a meditation beside a fern-lined mountain stream. It's a slow, gentle walk in the woods where the only voice you hear is your own-and you suddenly recognize it is but a single instrument amidst infinite voices in Nature's symphony. This book is Pan's flute, opening our senses to subtle truths otherwise overlooked in the busyness of our little lives." ~ Hal Zina Bennett, author of The Lens of Perception: A User's Guide to Higher Consciousness "These gentle pieces are to be savored like listening to a new mother singing lullabies. They are reminders that we are missing real life if we neglect to wander in wild nature with soft eyes and open hearts. A famous writing teacher once said to write with 'microscopic truthfulness.' I've wondered what that meant until I read Jan's book. Now I know." ~ Dave Smith, co-founder of Smith & Hawken, author of To Be of Use: Seven Seeds of Meaningful Work

"Thirty years ago, in a lecture at the Radcliffe Institute, Tillie Olsen first addressed the problem of silences in literature - paving the way for future explorations of the subject, including her landmark work, Silences. The subject of silences and silencing - as fact, as trope, as lens through which to understand literary history - has been central to feminist criticism ever since." "In Listening to Silences, a group of distinguished feminist literary critics reevaluates Olsen's heritage to reassert, extend, redefine, and question her insights, and to probe the dynamics of silence and silencing as they operate today in literature, criticism, and the academy. The book traces for the first time the genealogy of an important American critical tradition, one that still influences contemporary debates about feminism, multiculturalism, and the literary canon." "Forming a highly diverse group, the contributors to Listening to Silences include Kate Adams, Norma Alarcon, Joanne Braxton, King-Kok Cheung, Constance Coiner, Robin Dizard, Shelley Fisher Fishkin, Diana Hume George, Elaine Hedges, Carla Kaplan, Patricia Laurence, Rebecca Mark, Diane Middlebrook, Carla L. Peterson, Lillian Robinson, Deborah Silverton Rosenfelt, Judith L. Sensibar, Judith Bryant Wittenberg, and Sharon Zuber."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The Carmelite nuns at Pontoise invited Père Jacques to give conferences and to preach as retreat master. They received from him a seven-day retreat in the late summer of 1943. This book contains the talks he gave to the nuns: they are inspiring, but also warm-hearted reflections, on questions of key interest to his audience. Among the topics were love for Christ, for His Blessed Mother, the nuns’ Carmelite contemplative prayer life, and their religious observance, but all received deft treatment from this confrere who eventually became famous for his compassionate assistance to the persecuted in World War II. More Information As a diocesan priest Père Jacques Bunel was frequently in demand as a preacher in his home diocese of Rouen (Normandy). Along with his duties as educator in a prep school in Le Havre he spoke at important public occasions. He was chosen to give the sermon that marked the five hundredth anniversary of the death of St. Joan of Arc in the Cathedral of Rouen, the city where she was burned at the stake. Afterwards, when he became a Discalced Carmelite friar (the cover photo shows him on the day he professed his vows), he continued to exercise a preaching ministry. We owe the full texts of those talks (to the Carmelite Nuns of Pontoise), as well as helpful notes and an introduction, to Rev. Dr. Francis J. Murphy. Father Murphy, a diocesan priest who has become a good friend of the Carmelites through his interest in Père Jacques, collaborating with them as he collaborates with his historian colleagues, teaches at Boston College in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. This collection of talks extends the knowledge Father Murphy has provided to the public in the biography volume he named and published at ICS Publications with the title: Père Jacques, Resplendent in Victory. Book includes 8 photos.

Listening from the Heart of Silence

When we listen from this heart of silence, we invite healing on the deepest level, welcoming everything just as it is. This is as true in our ordinary relationships as it is in the specialized relationship between therapist and client.

Listening from the Heart of Silence: Nondual Wisdom and Psychotherapy, Volume 2 is a companion volume to The Sacred Mirror. It expands and deepens the groundbreaking dialogue begun in The Sacred Mirror. The title Listening from the Heart of Silence refers to a quality of listening that originates prior to the duality of the one who listens and the one who is heard. It is a listening that is global, spacious, and paradoxically (to the mind at least), extremely intimate. It comes from and points to our homeground in silent, lucid openness - what some have called the Heart. When we listen from this heart of silence, we invite healing on the deepest level, welcoming everything just as it is. This is as true in our ordinary relationships as it is in the specialized relationship between therapist and client. Once the heart of silence is fully recognized, our lives begin to move from the inside out with greater honesty, love, spontaneity and power, radiating out like concentric circles on the surface of a pond. Our lives increasingly embody our deepest truth. All psychological suffering is ultimately rooted in the misunderstanding of who we really are. The vital current of nondual wisdom implicit in the world's great spiritual traditions directly addresses the origins of the profound sense of lack and separation that are the basis of human suffering.

Nan's story that began with her best-selling book, Sounds of Silence, reached out to touch hearts all across the world. Her journey that started alone has now been joined by countless others whose pain and sadness have been washed away, and their lives turned around, by the healing love of Meher Baba - a spiritual Master from the higher realms. Her son Karl's loving and caring messages of hope from the spirit world inspire and stir the hearts, and strengthen the resolve of those who come forward to listen to the silence within and find their own answers - through the grace of the Master. Through these answers, Nans own life begins to take on a deeper spiritual meaning. Her story now moves compellingly forward, interwoven with a collection of personal, heart-touching narrations of the wondrous experiences people have had - when they have opened their hearts to the Master. In Listening to the Silence, Nan shows how the Master works only and absolutely - through the power of love. She also shares with us her deeper understanding of the evolution of consciousness, life and death, karma, compassion, love and forgiveness, and of the onward journey of the soul. More importantly, Listening to the Silence, gives you the strength to triumph over adversity, to evolve your own path and lead a life of self-fulfillment.

A brilliant, far-reaching exploration of the frontiers of noise and silence, and the growing war between them. Between iPods, music-blasting restaurants, earsplitting sports stadiums, and endless air and road traffic, the place for quiet in our lives grows smaller by the day. In Pursuit of Silence gives context to our increasingly desperate sense that noise pollution is, in a very real way, an environmental catastrophe. Traveling across the country and meeting and listening to a host of incredible characters, including doctors, neuroscientists, acoustical engineers, monks, activists, educators, marketers, and aggrieved citizens, George Prochnik examines why we began to be so loud as a society, and what it is that gets lost when we can no longer find quiet.

This book will take you on what will become an unbelievable concept of what ghosts really are capable of on a human level. From the moment I realized that not only were they in the building I work in, but with me, some fighting for my attention, wanting to claim me as their own. From the first time I listened to a recorded conversation between two spirits, to listening to the car wreck that took the life of the man who opened the door to the Other Side for me, I have never turned back and life has never been the same for me.
