Maybe the biggest needs of our time are silence, a dose of nature, a break from thinking and a moment of just being. We live in an urban, hectic, screen dominated, noisy, information and entertainment packed world. We are more and more connected to the rest of the world and less and less connected to nature, the present moment and our core of inner stillness.

The Guide to Silence project shows the way to green, calm places that can promote well-being and inner stillness. The focus is green places close to or in the cities of the world.
