Welcome to Stillness Speaks
Stillness Speaks is a preeminent resource for self inquiry and self exploration – the endless journey of self realization. We offer works of teachers (luminaries), and wisdom traditions (paths), both historical and contemporary, Eastern and Western, indigenous and otherwise. Our approach is integral – all are welcome!

I have been looking for you, World Honored One, since I was a little child …
At last I have found you, Blessed One, and I have found myself. … There I sit. …
The deep blue sky, … and the shining red sun sing with joy.
~ Thich Nhat Hanh …
“Devote yourself here and now to the search for the Truth that is ever within you.” ~ Ramana Maharshi

Until then, we have many sages that guide us along … or illuminate the way …. we are honored to offer a small sampling of these luminaries … a list that will grow with time.
