Friends of Silence is a non-profit endeavor to facilitate others in reverencing silence, prayer, contemplation, the Divine Guest, and the Oneness of all creation as well as to encourage the life-giving empowerment that derives from the Silence.
Based in West Virginia but serving a much wider community, the Friends of Silence offer a comprehensive website, including an extensive volume of inspirational quotes and other writings supporting periods of stillness and contemplative practice. Please see the Friends of Silence website HERE.
Friends of Silence are partnered with Still Point Mountain Retreat, a place for experiencing quiet and solitude in a wilderness setting. Details on this retreat facility can be found HERE.

Programs and Learning Opportunities:
Starting Jan 15, 2017, Bob Sabath from Friends of Silence will be leading an introductory exploration of the Gurdjieff material anchored in Nicoll’s Psychological Commentaries on the Teachings of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky. We Cynthia says this is “…arguably the most immediately practical access point to this great canon of transformational material. As Bob rightly points out, this is a “soft launch” into the great, wide world of Gurdjieff, geared toward illuminating practical inner skills, and cross-referenced by parallel passages in Christian lectio divina. It’s a beautifully thought-out exploration and will get many of us working and thinking together in this new terrain. I encourage you to join in.
