  • The Ragged Edge of Silence
  • by John Francis
  • Price: $26.00

After witnessing the devastating effects of a 1971 oilspill in San Francisco Bay, John Francis embarked upon a period of reflection that stretched into 17 years of silence, 22 years of walking, and his book The Planetwalker. Now, in his new book, The Ragged Edge of Silence, he uses his own inner and outer journey as a narrative framework, interweaving stories of silence throughout history and around the world—including practices by Native American, Hindu, and Buddhist cultures. Meditations and other practical exercises throughout the book help readers build constructive silence into their own lives, foster stronger relationships, become better stewards of the Earth, and embark on their own journey of personal discovery.
