While in D.C. They go to a Chapel in the Capitol dome, and have 30 minutes of quiet time. You can do any type of meditation. You can pray, say the Rosary, TM, or different types of meditation. The only rule is, you can’t talk. It’s 1/2 hour of quiet time. They have this space under the Capitol dome every week, to try to encourage people to settle in a little bit. It’s a helluva change from the back and forth that normally goes on in Washington, D.C.
“If we can bring quietness, kindess and gentleness that happens in that 1/2 hour into the rest of the week and the day, we can begin to shift what’s going on in Washington.”
Try to take quiet time throughout your day.
