Conversations with Silence Online Reading Group
Online Reading Group exploring Conversations with Silence: Rosetta Stone of the Soul
Led by Dr Sally Longley with Judith Keller leading the opening meditations
6 Online Sessions June 1- August 10 meeting every fortnight
Wednesdays evenings 7.00-8.30pm AEST
The Reading Group online sessions are held every two weeks with a commitment to continue to engage with the text in participants’ own time between sessions. Sally’s purpose in writing this book is for readers to explore the different landscapes of silence in their own personal and spiritual growth, so as we read the book we will ponder our own experiences. The text, as written by Sally, has clear invitations to engage in this way, as part of its design and intent. Participants are invited to bring the fruits of their engagement with the text between sessions to the group meeting online.
Please join us for an Introductory Conversations with Silence session Wednesday 27 April at 7:30 PM AEST with Sally and Judith. Interested people are encouraged to attend. Contact Judith email@example.com to register.
The online sessions will open with Judith Keller focusing the group for around 5 minutes with some brief quotes from the chapter and a shared time of silence. Sally will offer input in each session; then breakout groups will be facilitated and offer the opportunity to engage in conversations and cadences with silence further to the content of each chapter.
Participants need their own copy of the book available from https://wipfandstock.com. Please read chapter one and two before the first online session.
There is no charge for this book group. Sally and Judith look forward to meeting you.
