Concert of Dedicated Silence

Silence is deposited in thin layers at the Monastery of the Augustines for more than 375 years. It is a perfect place to experience an experience of collective silence.

After a short perspective inspired by the practices of the Augustines, we orchestrate together silence. Everyone is invited to dedicate his or her silence whether it is simply relaxing, meditative or spiritual, to a person, situation or cause.

A concert of silence is not so much to be silent as to listen. A way to regain calm, regenerate, rest, slow down, take a distance from outside stimuli, to get along from inside.

Silence is good for health! Several researchers, including the Italian cardiologist Luciano Bernardi, report that silence is a vector of health. It fulfills physical, psychological, emotional, sensory but also spatial functions by allowing us to revisit our place in the world.
