The Joy of Silence

with Bruce Davis

Bruce Davis is the author of 9 books, including Monastery without Walls and Simple Peace: The Spiritual Life of Saint Francis of Assisi. With a PhD in contemplative psychology, he is the leader of one of the top 10 meditation retreats in the world.

Today, Bruce will share his decades of experience leading silent retreats - and pursuing a practice of silence himself. Why is silence so powerful? Why do we fear it - and why are we drawn toward it?

Bruce also founded one of the first interspiritual retreat centers in Assisi, Italy, after falling in love with the joy of Saint Francis. What does this mystic have to teach us today?

Join us for a deep dive into joy, silence, wonder, and play.
