The Sound of Silence: walk with NEWConnective

Silence is indispensable. It’s no wonder we turn off the radio when we need to focus (although some of us are fine with it). Whenever we need to rest, listen to our own thoughts, or have a conversation, being quiet is as important as the sounds that precede it. Silence helps you process feelings, words, and happenings. It gives you time to put your own thoughts in order. 

When was the last time you were really silent? Without playing any music or having the tv on in the background?

I think 99 times and find nothing. I stop thinking, swim in silence, and the truth comes to me. – Albert Einstein

On Friday the 19th of November, from 3 to 5 pm, you can join The Sound of Silence, a walk that will mainly be done in silence, in the company of other people. The start is at 3D Debatecenter, at the Campus square, see map below.

Before we start, everyone will pick one inspirational quote from a couple of texts we will share. Once we start walking, we take our time to think about the words we picked, but also pay attention to our surroundings, and our loud inner voice that might not enjoy the silence. During the breaks, we share our insights and experiences with each other.
