Event description

Description

Join Internet pioneer and renowned filmmaker Tiffany Shlain for a conversation tackling one of greatest collective and personal challenges of our time: reclaiming the essential dignity of being human in a digital age.

Tiffany introduces a strategy for living in our 24/7 world: turning off all screens for 24 hours each week. She and her family call it “Technology Shabbat” or “Living 24/6”. Over the past decade, this weekly practice has completely changed their lives—giving them more time, productivity, connection, and presence.

Drawn from the ancient ritual of Shabbat, living 24/6 can work for anyone from any background. Tiffany shares her research into the neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, and history of a weekly day of rest across cultures.

Join Tiffany for a conversation about her family’s story and her practical advice for living your own 24/6 life. Discover how this modern ritual can work wonders on your mind, body, and soul.

Tiffany Shlain is an Emmy-nominated filmmaker and founder of the Webby Awards who has been honored by Newsweek as one of the “Women Shaping the 21st Century.” Her films and work have received more than eighty awards and distinctions, including being selected for the Albert Einstein Foundation’s Genius: 100 Visions of the Future. NPR inlcudes her UC Berkeley address on their list of best commencement speeches, and her films have premiered at top festivals, including Sundance.
