Notes on Silence, by Patrick Shen and Cassidy Hall

Over the last few months Director Patrick Shen and Co-Producer Cassidy Hall have been collecting their notes from the journey of making In Pursuit of Silence. The result is a near 300-page book titled Notes on Silence which features original essays, photos, interview transcripts, insights from authors, monastics, philosophers and theologians… We hope you’ll take the time to pick up a copy. Copies of the (limited) first editions will be signed by the authors and shipped on April 18, 2018. Order at notesonsilence.com

“I took this book with me on my annual pilgrimage to the Boundary Waters of northern Minnesota, a million acres of pristine wilderness where the silence runs deep. I’ve been spending a month there at the end of the summer for more than twenty years—but this year, with this book as a companion, I was able to go deeper into the silence, and let it go deeper into me, than ever before. A deep bow to the authors for this gift of contemplation. Highly recommended to all who seek the healing balm of silence and sanity in the midst of an all-too-noisy world.”

–Parker J. Palmer, author of Let Your Life Speak

“Notes on Silence is a treasure. Cassidy Hall and Patrick Shen bring a poet’s heart and an artist’s eye to the ineffable, wondrous mystery of silence, and in doing so they have created a book that invites you by multiple passageways to the hidden place where mysticism, beauty and emptiness dance. Their reflections, combined with striking photography and interviews with over a dozen silence lovers, make for a thoughtful celebration of its essential subject. It’s more than just a companion volume to their vitally important documentary In Pursuit of Silence — it’s a luminous work in its own right.” 

Carl McColman, author of Befriending Silence and Answering the Contemplative Call
