Turning Down the Noise: The Quiet Power of Silence in a Busy World
Turning Down the Noise: The Quiet Power of Silence in a Busy World0 0 5 Author: Christine Jackman Narrator: Jo Van Es
For centuries, wise men and women have sought silence to gain insight and creative inspiration. Now the modern world is catching up. Is neuroscience finally proving that the mystics, monks and medicine men were onto something?
As her own world became noisier, author Christine Jackman embarked on a quest for a better way of being. Turning Down the Noise explores what is happening to our brains, our lives and our communities as we navigate a never-ending assault on our senses and attention, whether from actual noise, exposure to media or the pings and alerts on our phones. More importantly, it shows how we can reverse the damage through simple daily acts designed to strip out the stimuli and reclaim the silence.
Seeking ways to channel and capture the clarity and peace of mind so often lacking in our lives, Jackman writes with a lightness of touch, sharing her own experiences and digging into her subject with the zeal of an investigative journalist and an enquiring mind.
