The Big Silence



I've been watching this 12 part series over the holidays and have found it fascinating. I am hoping to do a three day silent retreat in 2011.

Best line so far:
"The God you don't believe in is the God that doesn't exist."

Yes, I have watched it all on youtube. There is another one of 5 women spending 33 days in an Abbey in Australia, too. Both excellent. Makes me grateful for youtube!

I have watched it and it was interesting...I have done two 10 day silent retreats in the past six years and have learned and enjoyed both immensely!!!

I watched this after your recommendation, followed by "The Monastery" and "The Abbey". Of them all, I liked the Abbey the best, as it went much deeper into monasticism. Thanks for sharing this, it has made these last weeks much better!
