From the Heart of Silence

A Day of Contemplative Practice


Join with us for a day of silent contemplation, guided by these extraordinary open-hearted practitioners:

Father Michael Fish from the New Camaldoli Monastery in Big Sur. www.Contemplation.com

Venerable Ani Tenzin Kacho, Vietnamese born Tibetan Buddhist Nun and associate of the Dalai Lama. www.tdling.com

Rabbi Ted Falcon, Rabbi and teacher in the Jewish Contemplative Tradition. www.betalef.org; www.rabbitedonline.com

Sheikh Kabir and Camille Helminski, teachers in the Sufi tradition of Rumi. www.Sufism.org


Alternating periods of silent meditation and short talks on contemplation by each of the presenters including a silent lunch, and ending with a reception.

Silent contemplative practice is the common ground shared by various faith traditions. Sufism, Christianity, Judaism, and Buddhism each have their characteristic approaches to the contemplative experience. More and more people are coming to understand that meditation, centering prayer, and silent remembrance are practices that open up a shared spiritual experience beyond beliefs and theologies.
