Africa: Sounds of Silence?


Several of you have asked about the lions roaring through the night. I am posting a recording; hopefully you can hear the power of this many lions roaring at once.

For some this might be frightening and yet I found it deeply reassuring and familiar. I know after living in New England for many years, I loved the sound of the lighthouse sounding through the fog. This same resonance was what I experienced with the lions. It was what I felt with the dolphin’s sonar. It is a deep expansion of the heart and expanded love for their presence.

I wonder what animal’s sounds we experience this reassurance? What noises or communications they make to us that call forth a sense of “all is well?”
