The Silence Farm Metanoia is an interfaith center where silence and meditation is central in daily life and where spiritual seekers are welcome. Members invite their guests to slow down, to be still, and to internalize. They offer them a diverse program with different workshops that are always related to nature. In the Metanoia center, the main focus is silence in every aspect of life. The Silence Farm is built in real meaning and deep philosophy. Only vegetarian food is provided to the guests and they are involved in preparing the meal. The reason is not only health, but the global earth crisis. Every guest is involved in the garden work of the farm. Gardens need attention, and people try to reestablish their relation with the earth, to start to feel connected with the soil. Disabled people – mental and physical – are involved in the whole process of taking care of the farm. They are made visible again, because in daily life people often make no effort to relate to the disabled and they become invisible.
The Silence Farm Metanoia emphasizes that the way we deal today with spirituality is very different than how it was in the 80s. Metanoia offers a new vision for spiritual life in the 21st century. In the context of the Silence Farm, people much more easily relate with what a personal spiritual path could be for them.
