Product description

Product Description

'Many of the world's religions believe there is one simple path that leads us towards God' says Benedictine monk, Christopher Jamison, 'It's called silence'. This three hour programme was first aired on BBC2 and is now available on a double DVD set. Father Christopher is convinced that everyone can benefit from sustained, regular periods of silence. Clare, David, Helen, Jon and Trish have typical high pressured jobs full of modern day noise(txt, e mail, mobile, multi media, conference calling, internet and so on). In these engrossing films these volunteers are immersed in a week of complete silence and we see how they learn to live out a monastic existence. They may aspire to be spiritual but do they want to be religious? And, after their retreat is over, will they return to their old ways or have they learned valuable, new lessons which profoundly change their lives going forward?
