City Silence

City Silence is sitting together, silently, for a few minutes or much longer, in city spaces and community places. It is slowing the world down and noticing what we smell, hear, taste and feel. It is noticing our thoughts, the genius ones right along with the harebrained ones. It is turning off our digital devices and turning on our capacity for stillness, focus, wonder, creativity, compassion, and awe.

City Silence is connecting to each other in the space of silence, where we are all the same, where we are all just humans who want to feel better and do good in the world.
