    Transforming Silence
  •  
  • What is silence? Is it merely the absence of sound, or can silence be a gateway into more subtle forms of communication with ourselves, our world and each other? In this lecture, we explore progressive dimensions of silence, ranging from punctuations in everyday conversation to profound insight into the nature of our own minds. Susan Gillis Chapman will draw from her personal experiences of being in total silence for many months of group meditation retreat, as well as from her work as a contemplative relationship therapist and communication trainer. She will point to the difference between positive interruptions, gaps of silence that restore authenticity and negative silencing, suppressing our own or another person’s truth. www.susangillischapman.com
