Stephen W. Dick
Let us pause to listen to the unheard world . . .
Relax into a comfortable position . . .
Breathe in and out very slowly . . .
Quiet yourself and listen to the rhythm of your breath, your heart . . .
Listen to the silence . . .
You will think something . . . let it pass into you and through you . . .
You will feel something . . . let it pass into you and through you . . .
Spend some time in the unheard world . . .
(Several minutes of silence)
We begin to return now to the world we usually hear . . .
As you do, try to bring something of that unheard world with you . . .
And, remember to give yourself permission to return to the unheard world. Amen.
