Nyepi: The Day of Silence

Our friends in Bali celebrated the festival of Nyepi this weekend, one of the most beautiful and important days of the year for the island.  

It is ultimately a day where the do becomes the be. A day that a city and an island is connected, subconsciously, in harmony.

A day that awakens consciousness and raises awareness. A day where the island inhabitants tread a little lighter and go about it all a little softer.

A day where all understand the true meaning of "silence is golden".  We feel we'd all benefit hugely from such a day in London.
