The real in us is silent; the acquired is talkative.
— Kahlil Gibran
From TV sets and radios to sirens, jet aircraft, horns, and the constant yammer of too many people with too much to say, our world is filled with noise. When we are not engaged in listening to something or someone, we are usually yapping away ourselves, either externally or at least in our own heads. As a result very few people have experienced true quiet. Imagine a silence that is so rich and reaches so deeply within your mind that it then expands to envelop the sights and sounds and people around you.
