To support our time together, we will maintain Noble Silence. We ask that you plan on disconnecting from the world, letting go of the need to talk on the phone, text, email or use electronic devices. Springtime at Mt. Peale Animal Sanctuary will most likely offer warm days and cool nights, many will enjoy the time offered to outside, walk, and enjoy the internal and external quiet. You are also encouraged to not read, listen to music, or otherwise pull yourself away from what is happening in the present moment experience. We will be giving ourselves and the other participants the gift of silence and the freedom to explore our individual experience without interruption. This undistracted present moment experience, in all of its complexity and variety, will provide the material we will explore in our writing.
