Spreading the Word: Trying Not to Try

This Friday I share with you a TEDx Talk by Professor Edward Slingerland on the “effortless way of being in the world”. Inspired by ancient Chinese philosophers and modern science, the ideas shared in this talk are sure to inspire further reflection on how each of us approaches the “being in the world”. Enjoy!

Keeping up the “Spreading the Word” tradition, every Friday, I hope to share with you an article I’ve read or a video I’ve seen and considered it to be inspiring or enlightening. I feel it is important to take good care not just of our physical but also of our mental well-being. Humans have always turned and returned to storytelling. My Fridays’ “Spreading the Word” articles are an online version of sharing worthwhile stories.   

keep exploring and storytelling!
