The Wisdom of Silence

October 18, 2013

As a complement to the mission of our school communities, and in our effort to nurture holistic student maturation during their formative adolescent years, all are invited to attend this gathering, on October 24 and 25. Particularly relevant, given the heavy impact of social media, wireless communication, and the general pervasiveness of increasingly covert technology in the lives of adolescents, we will come together to discuss the plausibility and worth of inviting young adults to intentionally seek periodic sanctuary from endless information and noise; without such efforts, silence may be absent from their lives.

Conversations and participation in practices will introduce the meaningful benefits of silence, exploring ways to integrate these practices into the full spectrum of our scholastic and social curriculums.
