85: #cmSILENCE 12/19

Jutta Horstmann & Sabina H. Schmitz bei eyeo

As the end of the year draws near, life can get humorously hectic. We rush to finish up projects, try to squeeze in appointments with loved ones, and can easily lose track of ourselves in the process. 

Is this inevitable? Or can we find ways to ground ourselves amid all the chaos? In this busy season, create moments of stillness where you can.

When silence is intentional, it is valuable and restorative. It brings us back to our senses and is essential to our holistic well-being. Acoustic ecologist Gordon Hempton defines quiet as a ‘presence’ and ‘think tank of the soul.’ Silence is a powerful tool that allows us to take a step back from the atmosphere around us and realign with our intentions, our hopes, and ourselves. 

This December, set aside time to tune out the noise. You can go for a walk outdoors, find a cozy corner, or simply close your eyes. The magic of silence is that we can access it wherever we are.

Our Montevideo chapter chose this month’s exploration of Silence and Dani Scharf illustrated the theme.

Join us on Friday December 13th for our next event at eyeo. Jutta Horstmann and Sabina H. Schmitz will talk about December’s global theme #cmSilance Talk will be in English ➳ Get your free ticket here
