Silence Book Excerpt:

It's not often that we think about silence or its importance in living healthy, balanced, and productive lives. We especially need silence if we are to deepen our spiritual lives. This book understands the sacredness of practicing silence and explores how we can learn to incorporate it into both our prayer and everyday lives. Much more than a commentary on silence, this book invites readers throughout the text to stop, ponder, and be silent. It includes both reflection content and practice exercises for exploring how silence might become an everyday habit.

Conversations with the Womb Book Excerpt:

" "Warning: this book is NOT a new-age self-help softy. Perhaps it's the subject that initially enchanted me. I personally wish I had thought of having a Conversation with MY Womb! Giuditta Tornetta did think of it, and she rendered her trailblazing idea into a book that is at once practical, and a wildly esoteric page-turner. " -Midwife Robin Lim, 2011 CNN Hero, International Alexander Langer Award Recipient. "Conversations with the Womb is a guide back to yourself. It is time for this material to inspire and influence today's woman." -Kelly Brogan MD, Holistic Women's Health. "Conversations with the Womb is a treasure. A perfect way to connect with the profound wisdom we all carry inside." -Christiane Northrup, M.D., ob/gyn physician and author of the New York Times bestsellers: Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause. Often referred to as the well-spring of creation, the womb is the epicenter of a woman's relationship to the divine. Conversations With the Womb is a provocative rediscovery of ancient feminine power. Using the Nine Chakras of Creation as a road map to transforming one's personal history, women are encouraged to begin a profound and ongoing conversation with their most primal organ. Unburdened by their histories the immense creative force within the womb can be harnessed to manifest our heart's desire."

The Power of Silence Book Excerpt:

This book provides a theoretical account of a variety of different communicative aspects of silence and explores new ways of studying socially-motivated language. A research overview shows the influence of related work in the fields of media studies, politics, gender studies, aesthetics and literature. The author argues that in theoretically pragmatic terms, silence can be accounted for by the same principles as those of speech. A later, more applied section of the book explores the power of silencing in politics. A concluding chapter shows the importance of silence beyond linguistics and politics in terms of artistic expression. The approach is intentionally eclectic in order to explore the concept of silence as a rich and

God in Sound and Silence Book Excerpt:

Music, by its indeterminate levels of meaning, poses a necessary challenge to a theology bound up in words. Its distinctive nature as temporal and embodied allows a unique point of access to theological understanding. Yet music does not exist in a cultural vacuum, conveying universal truths, but is a part of the complex nature of human lives. This understanding of music as theology stems from a conviction that music is a theological means of knowing: knowing something indeterminate, yet meaningful. This is an exploration of the means by which music might say something otherwise unsayable, and in doing so, allow for an encounter with the mystery of God.

Silence in the Land of Logos Book Excerpt:

In ancient Greece, the spoken word connoted power, whether in the free speech accorded to citizens or in the voice of the poet, whose song was thought to know no earthly bounds. But how did silence fit into the mental framework of a society that valued speech so highly? Here Silvia Montiglio provides the first comprehensive investigation into silence as a distinctive and meaningful phenomenon in archaic and classical Greece. Arguing that the notion of silence is not a universal given but is rather situated in a complex network of associations and values, Montiglio seeks to establish general principles for understanding silence through analyses of cultural practices, including religion, literature, and law. Unlike the silence of a Christian before an ineffable God, which signifies the uselessness of words, silence in Greek religion paradoxically expresses the power of logos--for example, during prayer and sacrifice, it serves as a shield against words that could offend the gods. Montiglio goes on to explore silence in the world of the epic hero, where words are equated with action and their absence signals paralysis or tension in power relationships. Her other examples include oratory, a practice in which citizens must balance their words with silence in very complex ways in order to show that they do not abuse their right to speak. Inquiries into lyric poetry, drama, medical writings, and historiography round out this unprecedented study, revealing silence as a force in its own right.

What the Silence Said Book Excerpt:

" it is rare to read a poet so entirely dedicated to the idea , no, to the feeling, of the world as logos, of the world made tangible, motile, and breathing." -Fred Chappell, Author of Midquest, from the Foreword"David Hickman is a great poet of the spiritual soul. He has an astounding capacity to listen and hear the voice of dark luminosity that grounds existence. Things are said in this volume that I have tried for decades to say and have failed. This book brings comfort because it speaks truth, raw and beautiful. It finds hope in the darkest places, struggles with the deepest of human conflicts, and finds poignant delicacy where you would not expect it." -Robert Sardello. Author of Love and the World"Reading What the Silence Says, one feels both welcome guest and privileged company to witness words morphing into revelatory tropes, details blooming into the absolute. Hickman speaks not only of the commonplace, but also of those hard to see walls it is our place as humans to negotiate. These poems challenge the western nucleus of assumptions that define our lives with a reckoning that is playful, yet at the same time dead serious." -Stephen Roberts, Author of A Space Within A Space

Poems for the Game of Silence Book Excerpt:

"I look for new forms and possibilities," writes Jerome Rothenberg in Poems for the Game of Silence, "but also for ways of presenting in my own language the oldest possibilities of poetry going back to the primitive and archaic cultures that have been opening up to us over the last hundred years." It is this combined sense of mystery and authenticity, in words and new structures that approach archetypal chant, that informs his poetry. First published in 1971, this volume brings together a selection of Rothenberg's early groundbreaking work: a wide range of experimental forms, both written and oral, set beside renderings of Native American, Australian, and other primitive songs, as well as the ancestral poems exploring his own origins that look forward to his later poetry.

Seeing Silence Book Excerpt:

In a world ever more congested and polluted with both toxins and noise, award-winning photographer Pete McBride takes readers on a once-in-a-lifetime escape to find places of peace and quiet—a pole-to-pole, continent-by-continent quest for the soul. We tend to think of silence as the absence of sound, but it is actually the void where we can hear the sublime notes of nature. Here, photographer Pete McBride reveals the wonders of these hushed places in spectacular imagery—from the thin-air flanks of Mount Everest to the depths of the Grand Canyon, from the high-altitude vistas of the Atacama to the African savannah, and from the Antarctic Peninsula to the flowing waters of the Ganges and Nile. These places remind us of the magic of being “truly away” and how such places are vanishing. Often showing beauty from vantages where no other photographer has ever stood, this is a seven-continent visual tour of global quietude—and the power in nature’s own sounds—that will both inspire and calm.
