Loosely the idea is to spend two days in silence together going through normal activites. It sounds a bit silly, like just a bunch of people pantomiming, but it is a better idea then just that... we just haven't quite put the language to it yet.
We appreciate any thoughts, ideas or such that you might have to help and if you are interested in being a part of it let us know.
Some basic framework (any alterations are welcome):
Caravan in mid-morning. Make lunch. Set up camps. Activites such as excercise, eating, looking, sleeping, reading, writing, thinking, walking, and a whole lot of listening. We are not really interested in mimicking a silent meditation retreat, but rather mimicking normal life, but doing it with non-verbal communication. Make dinner. Sleep. Wake up. Make breakfast. Listen. Eat Lunch. Clean up camp. Caravan out. Go get beers and dinner at Pappy & Harriet's and get loud.
If this idea is appealing to you please post your comment here:
We finally have a blog!!!!!! it is way too little to late... but its better than nothing. Post ideas, share thoughts, criticize, its open and easy.
