Summary
Seeking Silence in a Noisy World explores our existential search for mindful solitude, what it can mean, and how we can benefit from peaceful solace. Silence-seeker Adam Ford wisely interrogates the quiet spaces and pauses in life, drawing upon the spiritual use of solitude in religious traditions from native American initiation ceremonies to Christian hermitages. He examines the creative power of silence as a source of inner strength and self-knowledge, and also reveals its darker side when used as a political or relationship weapon. Adam shares frank revelations from his own quest for solitude, and his discovery that silence is the hidden gem hinted at in the Lotus sutra, the precious stone we all unknowingly possess within. Through personal anecdote and daily meditations, Seeking Silence in a Noisy World shows how we all find moments of soothing peace to nourish our spirits in an increasingly chaotic world
