When Anne D. LeClaire decided to turn an ordinary Monday into a
day of silence, she viewed her experiment as a one-time occurrence.
Little did she realize she had begun an inner voyage that would
transform her life.
In the seventeen years since, LeClaire has practiced total
silence on the first and third Monday of each month. By detaching
herself from the bustle of her hectic lifestyle and learning to
listen to her deepest self, she has found a center from which to
live--one that tests, strengthens, and heals her. In practicing
silence, she has discovered her own secret garden--a cloistered,
sacred, private place where true personal growth is possible.
In this eloquent book--part memoir, part philosophical
inquiry--LeClaire reflects on how silence can help us attend to the
world around us, expand our awareness, and achieve inner peace.
Silence, LeClaire contends, reminds us to pay attention to the
ordinary moments of our existence. In silence we can learn how to
listen, become more compassionate, ignite and nurture creativity,
uncover our inner yearnings, and ultimately find peace and improve
our well-being. By confronting ourselves and learning from the
anxiety that arises when we are freed from distraction, we can
become whole. With clarity and humor, LeClaire reveals how silence
has brought joy to her life and helped her foster new connections
with nature, with others, and with herself.
