This review is from: The Big Silence [DVD] (DVD)
I caught the final episode of this on the BBC and it made such an impression that I wanted to watch the whole series. I am very glad that I did - the 3 documentaries in the series take you on a journey with 5 very different participants but I could identify or relate to each of them in some way.
They give an open and honest account of their struggle to find and accept silence in their lives and it is fascinating to watch as they receive guidance from their mentors. Their individual journeys make compelling viewing as they all make significant realisations and changes. There is also the additional insight of the monk who is responsible for helping them find silence - his counsel is a rare combination of spiritual advice, philosophy and an understanding of the real world.
Having watched this I have made some changes to the way I approach my home life.
