With silence increasingly becoming a stranger to us, one man set out to become its intimate: Pablo d'Ors, a Catholic priest whose life was changed by Zen meditation. With disarming honesty and directness, as well as a striking clarity of language, d'Ors shares his struggles as a beginning meditator: the tedium, restlessness, and distraction. But, persevering, the author discovers not only a deep peace and understanding of his true nature, but also that silence, rather than being a retreat from life, offers us an intense engagement with life just as it is. Imbued with a rare beauty, Biography of Silence shows us the deep joy of silence that is available to us all.
About the Author
Praise For Biography of Silence: An Essay on Meditation…
“Biography of Silence invites us to stop and catch our breath. Each chapter inspires a hunger for the contemplative silence the author has come to love with such contagious affection. The word ‘God’ is mentioned only a handful of times, but few books have rendered me more vulnerable to a divine encounter. Pablo d'Ors has given us a literary and spiritual gift.” —Brian D. McLaren, The Great Spiritual Migration
"Biography of Silence is a poetic yet baldly honest account of what it means to persevere with meditation." —Lion's Roar
