In some of the most ancient tantric texts was held a perspective that Silence has a three-fold quality of sound to it. It capture the elements of what is seen and what is unseen. Yet the connotation of silence in our modern world is the moving away from sound, which can leave us feeling uncertain and at times fearful of cultivating the inner resting into Silence. We will explore ~Silence as Presence, Awareness, Consciousness ~Silence as the ‘place’ or the ‘field’ or matrix wherein we live and more and have our being ~Techniques for cultivating our ability to BE Silent and Present in two ways: 1.As a practice. A number of meditation and contemplative forms 2. In our daily lives ~What it means to integrate the boundless parts of ourselves (Self) with the aspect of our being in this creative world with its diversity and differentiation.  $35
