Abstract:

Many people find the very notion of silence uncomfortable, even alarming or embarrassing. They are gripped by a kind of agoraphobia of the spirit. Many try to obliterate silence by turning up the volume control of music or television, or the volume of their days. The Power of Silence explores the world of silence--a mysterious and unfathomable realm, perhaps the most underused of all resources--and those who recognize its value. It is based on extensive interviews with those whose business is silence and who understand its creative and therapeutic uses.
