Encountering Silence is creating a podcast about all things silence.

$298
per month
EVERY PATRON receives our exclusive updates which feature episode previews via video, audio, and book updates about what the team is reading!

Everyone needs silence in their lives, and we want to help people appreciate the beauty and meaning of silence — and why silence helps us to lead healthier and happier lives. With your monthly pledge, you become a patron of our podcast. In other words, you become part of the team.

We live in a noisy world, and too many people don’t understand how important silence is. It’s important for our mental and physical health. But it also is beautiful, and can open our hearts to a truly spiritual life.


Encountering Silence is funded entirely by patrons like you. Your pledge will help us to keep producing new episodes that can help more people discover the beauty and importance of silence.


There are benefits to being a patron. Depending on the level of your pledge, you’ll receive some exclusive Encountering Silence merchandise, get special episodes of the podcast created exclusively for patrons, or even participate in a live-stream video conference with one of us.


Every pledge makes a difference, and every patron gets acknowledged on a special thank you page on our website. Together we can make a difference. Thank you for your support.

Goals
$298 of $1,000 per month
At $1,000/month our team will upgrade our field recorders and home recording equipment, in order to bring you the best sounding podcast possible. For those sound-gurus out there, this would include audio interfaces, professional microphones, and field equipment that would eliminate background noise for more crisp and clear interviews.
