Stillness

 


Uwe Schroeter and Lawrence Cook


“Be still.  Stillness reveals the secrets of eternity.” ― Lao Tzu

“A man gets used to riding on at the break of day.  Comes to think that movement and noise is where life is, when after all there’s life in stillness and quiet too.” ― Kate Elliott, Traitors’ Gate

While men have been coming to Cook’s Cabin throughout the last 26 years for a number of reasons, the opportunities for stillness are always a big draw.  At the Cabin we can experience pristine snow, a night sky unspoiled by city lights, quiet times by ourselves and in community during meditation, and many other activities that are conductive to pausing, reflecting and listening.  We extend an invitation to the men of NMMW to explore how stillness in our lives can help us cope with the ever increasing stimulation that our society provides.  Let’s share these experiences at Cook’s Cabin while we pursue the activities that we have come to cherish at the Cabin:  skiing and snowshoeing, stargazing, board and word games, reading, meditating and personal reflection, live and recorded music, a hot tub to soothe our muscles, talking circles in the evening, and communal meals.
