About the Talk

We live in a noisy world.

It’s estimated that we hear 5,000 commercial messages every single day. And the average smart phone use among adults is up to 3 1/2 hours a day.

How can a person thrive with that much noise? 

This multimedia talk is about how we might recover the value of silence in the 21st century. How it could contribute to the health and flourishing of our lives. 

We’ll hear from Bach and Get Out, Lizz Wright and Annie Dillard, the Book of Job and the diary of Anne Frank, Simon & Garfunkel as well as Eliot and Yeats and Wendell Berry.

Along the way, you’ll discover the seven uses of silence. And you’ll enjoy some space to personalize each one, to make the sound of your own life more whole.
