The Carmelite nuns at Pontoise invited Père Jacques to give conferences and to preach as retreat master. They received from him a seven-day retreat in the late summer of 1943. This book contains the talks he gave to the nuns: they are inspiring, but also warm-hearted reflections, on questions of key interest to his audience. Among the topics were love for Christ, for His Blessed Mother, the nuns’ Carmelite contemplative prayer life, and their religious observance, but all received deft treatment from this confrere who eventually became famous for his compassionate assistance to the persecuted in World War II. More Information As a diocesan priest Père Jacques Bunel was frequently in demand as a preacher in his home diocese of Rouen (Normandy). Along with his duties as educator in a prep school in Le Havre he spoke at important public occasions. He was chosen to give the sermon that marked the five hundredth anniversary of the death of St. Joan of Arc in the Cathedral of Rouen, the city where she was burned at the stake. Afterwards, when he became a Discalced Carmelite friar (the cover photo shows him on the day he professed his vows), he continued to exercise a preaching ministry. We owe the full texts of those talks (to the Carmelite Nuns of Pontoise), as well as helpful notes and an introduction, to Rev. Dr. Francis J. Murphy. Father Murphy, a diocesan priest who has become a good friend of the Carmelites through his interest in Père Jacques, collaborating with them as he collaborates with his historian colleagues, teaches at Boston College in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. This collection of talks extends the knowledge Father Murphy has provided to the public in the biography volume he named and published at ICS Publications with the title: Père Jacques, Resplendent in Victory. Book includes 8 photos.

Does it really exist? Mihkel certainly hasn’t given it much consideration. Perhaps he’s never experienced real silence. Mihkel lives in the city where there is constant noise all around him. He listens to the radio, the TV, and plays computer games, all with the volume turned up to maximum. His parents are forever telling him to turn down the volume. Perhaps Mihkel is just arguing with the world he knows, by trying to make more noise than the city around him. A visit to his grandparents in the country changes things when the farmhouse loses power for several days. Mihkel learns to listen to the silence, to listen to the sounds of life around him, the not-so-noisy sounds of life. Even the grains of sand under his feet, the fog in the evening and the gently blowing curtains have a sound of their own. Has Mihkel learned that silence really doesn’t exist? Has he learned that the sounds in the silence can be very entertaining and certainly not boring? In The Sounds of Silence, Heiki Vilep has written a story about silence, or the lack thereof. He presents a lively young boy who loves to keep busy and to be surrounded by noises all of the time. It is a story about respecting the world around us, to listen to the silences and to learn from the silences. It is a story about the sounds that are ever-present, even in a world too noisy to really listen. With colorful illustrations, this is a valuable story to teach young people to listen, to really listen. readersfavorite.com/book-review/the-sounds-of-silence
When we listen from this heart of silence, we invite healing on the deepest level, welcoming everything just as it is. This is as true in our ordinary relationships as it is in the specialized relationship between therapist and client.

Listening from the Heart of Silence: Nondual Wisdom and Psychotherapy, Volume 2 is a companion volume to The Sacred Mirror. It expands and deepens the groundbreaking dialogue begun in The Sacred Mirror. The title Listening from the Heart of Silence refers to a quality of listening that originates prior to the duality of the one who listens and the one who is heard. It is a listening that is global, spacious, and paradoxically (to the mind at least), extremely intimate. It comes from and points to our homeground in silent, lucid openness - what some have called the Heart. When we listen from this heart of silence, we invite healing on the deepest level, welcoming everything just as it is. This is as true in our ordinary relationships as it is in the specialized relationship between therapist and client. Once the heart of silence is fully recognized, our lives begin to move from the inside out with greater honesty, love, spontaneity and power, radiating out like concentric circles on the surface of a pond. Our lives increasingly embody our deepest truth. All psychological suffering is ultimately rooted in the misunderstanding of who we really are. The vital current of nondual wisdom implicit in the world's great spiritual traditions directly addresses the origins of the profound sense of lack and separation that are the basis of human suffering.

Classical drama on the modern stage as a cultural and political phenomenon is scholarly trailed since the 1950s and 60s and intensified in the last third of the twentieth century. The evidence is being extensively documented, pioneered by Walton (1987) and McDonald (1992) and subsequently developed by collaborative research projects which include published databases. It is clear from the work of these projects that performance of classical drama is a major feature in all types of theatre avant-garde and experimental, student, international and fringe, epic and classical, commercial, popular and canonical. This means that it is closely intertwined with the politics of locale, environment and geography as well as of language, translation and culture. Each of the essays has a specialised contribution to make. However, the total impact of the whole section will be even greater than the sum of the parts because the authors not only intersect in their discussions of common concerns in modern performance of ancient drama but also provide case studies that will add to the knowledge base and critical acumen of everyone working in the field.
