Noble Silence

The power of silence

The power of silence

A key part of joining our community is practising noble silence. Every day of the week from evening until the morning meeting, we ask everyone to join in this practice. The silence is very healing, and an excellent opportunity to slow down and observe what’s happening in our minds and bodies.

Noble Silence time is a chance to be free from the need to talk, listen, or communicate with others. If this is new to you, please ask for more advice from our meditation teacher. During Noble Silence, we don’t need to expend any energy trying to connect with others.

"Some moments of silence is what I needed the most"

No loud noises;
Quietly embracing the beauty of just respectful silence

Plenty of reasons

It includes things like writing to each other, joking without words, and using devices like phones. It is not a silence imposed by an external authority, but something we choose to allow for ourselves.

By being part of this community, we each choose to take this time each night just for ourselves, and we respect others while they do the same.

So in short

Where or when does the noble silence rule applies in the centre?

Speech is silver, silence is golden. Silence is the sleep that nourishes wisdom. Silence is better than unmeaning words. Silence is a source of great strength.
