Check out this great Adult Education discussion group meeting on Sunday mornings. Some weeks the group watches TED Talks together, while other weeks presenters bring in interesting and inspiring ideas. We set aside time every week to discuss these issues. Topics cover a wide range of issues and ideas — which open us up to the encouraging work of people who address problems and the possibility of our own power to participate in change. These presentations and the conversations that follow will help us find Spirit in every facet of life. Watch our website and Facebook page for what’s coming up each week!

The Art of Stillness by Pico Iyer
Presented by Andria Flores

The place where travel writer Pico Iyer would most like to go?

Nowhere.

In this counterintuitive and lyrical meditation, Iyer takes a look at the incredible insight that comes with taking time for stillness. In our world of constant movement and distraction, he teases out strategies we all can use to take back a few minutes out of every day, or a few days out of every season. This is the First Talk for anyone who feels overwhelmed by the demands for our world.
