At my first Awakin Circle, I was anxious about putting my phone on airplane mode. What if it still rang or made noise? Then I would be interrupting everyone who was here for one hour of silent meditation. Clearly, I had never put my phone on airplane mode outside of being in an airplane. But, the joy I felt at my phone's absence in the next three hours of silence, sharing, and eating a meal together! The digital marketer finally put her phone on airplane mode for three hours, and it was a blessing.
