Program 2a/b). A LIVING SILENCE. Originally heard on National Public Radio, this documentary looks at the process of contemplation -- a practice known to searchers in all traditions. Those interviewed are Quakers, who worship in silence. "The power of silence," smiled one woman knowingly, "is that you can't talk your way out of it." Still, reflections on the value of group meditation, and an extensive review of the Quaker philosophy of equality, make this well worth a listen.
