In our hyper communicative and mobile world we’re more connected than ever before and yet we find it difficult to go deeper in our relationships because we’re so distracted by the constant stream of information that bombards us. Often, if we really desire to have meaningful conversations, we need to disconnect—shut off our smart phones, laptops etc—in order to connect more deeply with others. The same is true for our spiritual life. If we want to deepen our relationship with God, we need to be present in our conversation with Him. If we take Teresa of Ávila at her word, the most profound encounters with the divine are rooted in the simplest, most personal experiences. There are no experts when it comes to our relationship with God. And yet many of us still feel daunted and don’t know how to begin the conversation. The Daily Disconnect is an opportunity for contemplation everyday that is structured like a conversation you can do in less than 8 minutes via your phone, tablet, computer etc. In a sense we’re inviting you to use the most modern technology available to connect to an opportunity to disconnect from the distractions of the moment and participate in an ancient, timeless conversation with a friend.

Change the intro

I’ve just subscribed. I love it except for how it begins !! Totally wasn’t expecting the noise !!! Please fix that ! Change it and I can give a 5 star rating !

Uggh. Back to the unpleasantly jarring intro and later excessive volume of background music

Glad to now see other reviewers agree.

I used to listen to this podcast a few years ago but quit because the noisy intro was so unpleasant. I gratefully resubscribed when that intro was replaced with a very peaceful voice. Now it has unfortunately reverted to the prior one. It’s as if someone there thinks it’s so clever, but instead it just causes the agitating dissonance it purports to remedy.

Also problematic is the later excessive volume of background music behind the very soft-spoken narrator quoting the Saints. Trying to hear and concentrate on his message over the loud music is very difficult. When you turn up the volume to try to hear his words, The background music become so loud it again causing this dissosnance you’re supposedly trying to replace with a peaceful contemplation. Ha ha.

Please just restore the peaceful intro and lower the volume of the later cackfround music begins the very soft-spoken narrator.
