Book Recommendation

The Power of Quiet in a World Full of Noise by Thich Nhat Hanh goes beyond the noise of traffic, TV, chatter etc. "Noise" applies to all our senses e.g. time spent in front of a monitor surfing the net or liking or commenting on posts by our dozens if not hundreds of Facebook "friends" or scrolling through Twitter feeds so we can retweet.

This leads to deep listening, inner stillness and connection with our now no matter what or where our circumstances.
