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!

“Why Do We Sleep?” by Russell Foster | Andria Flores

Russell Foster is a circadian neuroscientist: He studies the sleep cycles of the brain. And he asks: What do we know about sleep? Not a lot, it turns out, for something we do with one-third of our lives. In this talk, Foster shares three popular theories about why we sleep, busts some myths about how much sleep we need at different ages – and hints at some bold new uses of sleep as a predictor of mental health.
