At New Life we participate in noble silence from 21.30 until the morning meeting at 8.30, and a little later on Sundays. Practicing noble silence allows us to learn to relax in the presence of silence, and helps us to remove the masks we use when we communicate with others. We can simply be with each other, smile and make friendly eye contact.
When we learn how to be in silence with others, we find a deeper, more essential way of connecting with another human being. As a result, we can get much closer to our experience and begin to glimpse what’s really happening around and inside of us.
