Welcome to the new Stillness Speaks! … The long wait is indeed over – our renovated website launched today, June 28, 2016.
This launch is like a “beta” release, i.e., it is ready enough for public use but is still moving towards “completion” OR it is like a fully livable, newly renovated home that is still under construction but is ready enough for others to visit and enjoy while it is “finished.” … so, please come in and enjoy Stillness Speaks’ new “home.”
“… Stillness is where creativity and solutions to problems are found.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
During this “beta period” we will be migrating the massive “pre-renovation” content while simultaneously adding fresh new content (both teachers and traditions). And, for every 2-3 months we will focus on a particular tradition (though not exclusively) – the first one is “Zen & Buddhism.” Please let us know what zen/buddhist teachers draw you or what other traditions are of interest. We have a road map for all of this but that is ever evolving and we would love to incorporate other new ideas. Even though the fundamental action in the journey of self realization is to look within but it is still a shared journey, where we learn and grow together.
“When we seek for connection, we restore the world to wholeness. Our seemingly separate lives become meaningful as we discover how truly necessary we are to each other.” ~ Margaret Wheatley
Aside from the broad future road map there are some immediate matters that will be tended to over the next few days, e.g., a) upgrade of social channels with the new branding, b) bit more “about us” including our deep gratitude to those who nurtured and supported Stillness Speaks so far, and c) various minor adjustments to do with images, attributions, and more. We’ll post about any significant updates… so stay tuned !
“Every moment is a chance to fulfill our purpose.” ~ Tiffany Mackey
This is just the beginning of a new chapter for Stillness Speaks and in the end, we are here to serve you – the site’s growth and usability depends on you …so please share with us what you like or don’t like, what you want changed or added – we welcome your feedback!
“We are here to awaken from our illusion of separateness.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
In service and gratitude,
Cherie & Sanjiv .. and Chris

Come along and listen to the lullaby of this way, the words of RUMI an Rinpoche will help you have a great day!!!
Thank you for being our first commenter on the new site 🙂
Indeed, Rumi and Rinpoches are true luminaries … and are great reminders of what is possible in the here and now.
You have a great day.
Again, which Rinpoche please.
Lullaby? A soothing song to send a child to sleep? Surely the very opposite–at least in the case of Rumi’s songs. As for Rinpoche, which one do you mean, Jimmiji.
“To seek, discover and find this side of the edge of the river . . . one may need guidance. But the crossing must be a solo expedition into the ultimate truth of freedom. However, fear-of false securities and illusions and the voyage is denied. On one side beliefs flourish, on the other a freedom that words can never mirror” Lawrence Carson
Sight looks fantastic.
Love the opening not-two-to-infinity.
Can’t wait to browse the rest of the site.
Thanks for all the work you do.
Thank you for the compliments – glad you like the site. It’s most gratifying to see your appreciation of the opening 🙂
Please do take the time to browse and give us your feedback … this is “Stillness in Motion” 🙂 … it will keep evolving and we want to ensure the audience finds it useful and visually appealing.
Thanks for dropping by and sharing your comment.
And by sight, I mean site. 🙂
No worries 🙂
This is indeed wonderful! A treat for the viewer and most importantly it’s a gold mine for seekers of Truth covering almost all the contemporary spiritual masters. Please convey my appreciation to all those behind the scene ones who have put in much effort in compiling and creating this website. With Love and blessings
Thank You for your kind words. Indeed, we are grateful to be able to offer useful content with a visual appeal – it was a lot of work … many months and still lots more to-be-done 🙂
We will continuously add more teachers and traditions – here’s a snapshot of the future.
Of course, your gracious help has allowed us to offer some gems from Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. Thank You.
Congratulations! Very happy! All the best to all of you!
Thank You Sandhya.
Of course, your gracious work in the past allowed Stillness Speaks to continue … which is deeply appreciated.
Not sure what the Zen traditions are about. Buddhism I have studied and engaged in, Both Theravada tradition and Tibetan. I like Anam Thubten, author of” Magic of Awareness” and “No Self, No Problem”. Have read both. For Theravada teachings, Ajahn Chah, Thanissaro Bhikkhu , any of the Thai Forest tradition.
Zen is a Japanese school of Mahayana Buddhism … its lineage path is Indian to Chinese to Japanese. Mahayana is one of the two major branches of Buddhism – the other being Theravada. Tibetan Buddhism is considered part of Mahayana (as it maintains the Vajrayana teachings). Vajrayana is part of Mahayana … though it “may be viewed as a third branch.” For more details please visit our Zen & Buddhism page.
We will be focusing (though not exclusively) on the Zen & Buddhism tradition for the next 2-3 months.
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment.
Congratulations ! Today I check mail and there is a New Beginning found, really its a good activity in this entangled societal era , I will try to send you some quotes from Ashtavakra, from my own works and other ancients scriptures.
With love and Blessings …!
