"Stillness is not the absence or negation of energy, life, or movement. Stillness is dynamic. It is unconflicted movement, life in harmony with itself. It is skill in action." ~E.Schiffmann
The practice of Stillness is tremendously difficult in our media rich, always-on, over-communicated society. Noise crowds into every empty space, leaving us spiritually, mentally, and emotionally exhausted.
Many of us are constantly plugged into the Internet, email and social media, leading to digital addiction and an inability to be present to the here and now of our lives. How can we make time for solitude, silence and stillness? What's the benefit?
The truth is, if we can learn to sit with an increasing stillness of the body and mind as we contemplate our world's many indicators of vastness and calm, our minds gradually still, and our hearts can be filled with quiet joy, peace, and relaxation.
*Join us at on January 17th at DoveWI with speaker Dr. Wayne Matthews for this restorative and powerful workshop as we explore the art and practice of STILLNESS.
