City Silence

Welcome to The Well.
Where we sit together for a few minutes or longer in city spaces, schools and community places. Where we slow the world down and notice what we smell, hear, taste and feel. Where we notice our thoughts, the genius ones right along with the harebrained ones. Where we notice each other’s beauty. Where we turn off our digital devices and tune into our capacity for stillness, focus, wonder, creativity, compassion, and awe.

Whether your well is City Silence, True Body Project or Mindful Music Moments, you’ll find simple and profound practices to remember that we are all deserving humans who want to feel better and do well in the world.
