join our book club!
In September 2016 we launched our seasonal MindBodyBrew Book Club in order to share great resources and further connect with one another on mind/body practices and mindful living. Join our staff, teachers, students, and community members in reading and discussing a new featured book each season of the year.
Winter seems like the perfect season to remind ourselves of the importance of stillness as a counter-balance to the mad rush of our modern lives. This is a quick but powerful read and a must for anyone seeking balance throughout the winter.
The Art of Stillness considers the unexpected adventure of staying put and reveals a counterintuitive truth: The more ways we have to connect, the more we seem desperate to unplug.
Why might a lifelong traveler like Pico Iyer, who has journeyed from Easter Island to Ethiopia, Cuba to Kathmandu, think that sitting quietly in a room might be the ultimate adventure? Because in our madly accelerating world, our lives are crowded, chaotic and noisy. There’s never been a greater need to slow down, tune out and give ourselves permission to be still. In The Art of Stillness—a TED Books release—Iyer investigates the lives of people who have made a life seeking stillness.
