Objective

Objective - To introduce some silence in our lives
To sit with ourselves for sometime, and not DO anything - no talking, no technology, no reading, NOTHING.

Expected Benefit - Simplifying life, awareness, connection, clarity, 'feeling' better, grounding & centering and a lot, lot more!

Description

The Facilitator (me) will sit in silence, from when the day starts, and until the day ends (where day =TGP day)
Participants and everyone, are invited to sit with me in silence, for as long as they can.
People can move in and out, though I may be present at the space, all the time.
Lunch, other breaks etc. will also be had in silence.

At the end of the day, there can be a round of discussion and sharing - where people can share how their experience was and any questions they have/had.

Requirements

A clean, well-ventilated insect/pest-free space (preferably in the open), a comfortable chair and table, some space for other chairs

Mystical sciences like Taoism, Sufism and other disciplines also interest me and am constantly searching to bring forward the true meaning of Spirituality and its practical application, in our every-day busy lives! Love words, questions, books, music, smiling and meeting people!

    I would suggets 15 minute silence sessions 4 times a day.

    I appreciate the suggestion, Ramkumar.. However, I feel that it would be better if the facilitator is present all day, in silence... and whoever is interested to participate can come 15 min / more whenever they can... Because different people may use different times of the day to experience this!What do you think?
