We want to note that Heather Plett has written a follow-up to the posts on “holding space”, which is “On holding space when there is an imbalance in power or privilege.”
There was a mention of a podcast interview with Daniel Levitin, https://soundcloud.com/inquiringminds/55-daniel-levitin-the-organized-mind, on how the brain works. Begin at minute 25.
Also we referred to the book The Pursuit of Silence. There is an NPR interview (13 minutes) with its author at http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=125511963.
We ended the podcast by talking about how we are going to incorporate silence into our days: sitting in the backyard, weeding in the garden, zoning out on the commute home, taking breaks during work.
On the call were Maurice Coleman, Kate Kostuski, Jill Hurst-Wahl and Paul Signorelli. The episode can be heard here.
