Silence

Some years back, a client said to me ‘silence is underrated’ when I asked about background music for their treatment… It was an unusual choice, as most people tend to go for some sound to focus on, as it helps them let go. But, I occasionally offer it to new clients, as often we are surrounded by noise & silence can be a blissful relief.

I remember my therapist once telling me of a client of his who’d gone off on a retreat & driven himself mad with silence… there were so many thoughts flying around his head, the silence wasn’t peaceful, quite the reverse. Even the suggestion from my therapist that I could benefit from exploring silence sounded borderline terrifying a few years back…!

In these very odd times, silence is more available… depending where you are… but nature is getting more of a look in…

However, if solitude, silence or the strangeness of it all is getting you try these…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XkDlDXGQOQ… or perhaps…https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=satie&view=detail&mid=386114C824AA783C7BAC386114C824AA783C7BAC&FORM=VIRE … or even…¬† https://planetradio.co.uk/scala-radio/player/105396255/… (you’ll have to ignore the news element at the beginning of this last one)… they help me…
