Overview

SILENT THINK TIME (STT) describes positive thinking, scientific body energy studies, breathing and physical exercises, ego release, Qi, chakras, Quantum Mechanics, and shows you how to set up a STT room, as well as sayings, poems, and affirmations. STT is a meditative practice for children and adults, drawing on Eastern thought and other spiritual beliefs.

By applying these lessons, you can help change the quality of our homes, education, workplaces, institutions and organizational systems. Technology has advanced thousands of times faster than our true understanding of ourselves. The result is a greedy, violent world filled with emotionally numb, chronically sleep-deprived, ill-fed, and imbalanced people.



SILENT THINK TIME can help you, as well as your spouse, children, students, coaches, clients, employees, veterans or inmates learn to behave in ways that are positively centered, emotionally balanced, peaceful, respectful, polite, self-controlled, patient, and understanding.



Doing STT daily lessons will fuel a loving sensitivity toward others, serene composure, clearer thinking and a blissful enlightened mood. By reestablishing your intuitive self, STT keeps its practitioners positively motivated toward the correct pathways in life, through self-discipline, self-control and being in control of our own body healing.



If adults and children practiced STT in all aspects of our world, we could redirect our entire society “emotional firefly”, constant strobe light, “noise chatter” motion. It would teach us the inter-connectivity and interdependency between all living things. We can master a life free from worries, doubts, fears, resentments, anger or shame, through physical and breathing exercises, and a positive mindset to lead us from restlessness to peace, desires to contentment, and ignorance to wisdom.

    Reviewed by Anne B. for Readers Favorite

    In "Silent Think Time: How to Bring Virtues Back into Our Home, Schools, Counseling and Work" Karen Zalubowski Stryker cleverly uses her expertise as a teacher, systems analyst and business owner. Ms Stryker has five college degrees: in psychology, computer science, art and two in education. The concept behind STT is to relieve stress by taking two breaks a day, one in the morning and one in the evening, of 15-50 minutes, to meditate. It is suggested that the employer or teacher prepares specific areas and times for the employee or student to sit and contemplate on such questions as: “Who am I in relation to the rest of the world?” and “What was my most precious moment today?” Ms Stryker found that using her techniques helped her students to focus, concentrate and behave with a positive attitude toward others. Having vastly traveled outside the United States, Stryker discovered that something similar to STT was being used in many countries. Around mid morning the teacher asks the children to lay their heads on their desk and be completely quiet, or in the afternoon the children would lie quietly on a mat. This practice calmed the children down. As I read this part I remembered my third grade class. Ms Myers employed the very same technique on us each day. We had a quiet time with our heads on our desks each afternoon. Often a few students would fall asleep.

    Ms Stryker continues by expanding on the topic, explaining the importance of attitudes and showing how meditation assists the body in healing. The concept has positive benefits that should be at least discussed by institutions. There is much more in this book than I can address in this review. However, I do want to mention that Stryker suggests this may calm hyperactive children and adults. Ms Stryker’s book is interesting, well-organized and easy to read. Much of the philosophy could be called new age although Chakra is actually part tantric and yoga, whose roots are in Hinduism.
