“Sardello’s work Silence sets a momentum into order every time I pick it up, one which asks only that I stay open to that momentum. I haven’t encountered this kind of book before, and I don’t know what’s in it for me, only that I have a longing to stay open to it.… I daresay the work will speak for itself. I can’t speak for it except to pray it finds a very wide audience and works its magic thereon.”
—Joseph Chilton Pearce, author of The Biology of Transcendence: A Blueprint of the Human Spirit; Magical Child; and The Crack in the Cosmic Egg: New Constructs of Mind and Beauty
“This book is a breakthrough. In Silence Robert Sardello modestly, elegantly—and magisterially—brings thirty years of work in phenomenological, soul-based spiritual psychology to a new level. What was implicit before becomes explicit: spiritual psychology is not just another theory; it is a path to a new reality.”
—Christopher Bamford, author of The Voice of the Eagle: The Heart of Celtic Christianity and An Endless Trace: The Passionate Pursuit of Wisdom in the West
“With reverence and insight, Sardello delves deeply into… the power of silence to heal people physically and spiritually, and the importance of silence in prayer and meditation… Reading this book, one soon learns to equate silence not with the vacuum of outer space but with the rich depths of the soul.”
In the contrary, silence is a very active place of total connection.
If you are looking for a practice of bringing silence to a greater extent in your everyday life and relationships, this is a great book to help with that practice.
