Our constantly connected, tuned-in world can become stressful and often crowds out the ability to just sit and think, to slow down and relax. Maybe it's time to explore the benefits of doing nothing more than sitting quietly, shutting out much of the noise that surrounds us.
To celebrate its 10th anniversary, the True Body Project created City Silence, an international network of community mindfulness events in participating cities. Partners hold silent, public gatherings, where individuals are welcome to participate for as little or as long as they would like. Here to discuss City Silence and the benefits of silence are Meriden Peters, emotional and well-being program associate with Interact for Health; Dr. Mehran Attari, director of the electrophysiology section and associate professor at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine; and, City Silence and True Body Project founder Stacy Sims.
City Silence will be held from 7:30 - 8:30 am in Washington Park, Monday through Friday, June - August.
