The Encountering Silence Podcast speaks to Quiet Gardens Founder and Patron, Rev Phillip Roderick.
“Silence is a weaving, it’s like a tapestry or a pattern of presence; it recalls me; but it’s not like a block, it’s more like a river, a flow, a patterning… silence is for me a resource, an aperture, a journey…” — Philip Roderick
In the episodes Philp shares the history of Quiet Gardens, and how silence shapes him.
