Event description

Description

*This event is free and open to the public.

**The first 100 Scribd subscribers to arrive will receive a free copy of Stillness is the Key

Stillness. It was the secret weapon of the Stoics, the Buddhists, the Confucians, the Christians, the Hindus, and the Greeks. Indeed nearly every philosophy of the ancient world speaks of stillness as one of the most powerful forces on earth.

All great leaders, thinkers, artists, athletes, and visionaries share one indelible quality: the capacity for what Ryan Holiday calls stillness - to be steady while the world spins around you. Within, one can discover the ability to slow things down. To see things clearly. To quite one's mind. To center one's soul. To control one's body. It enables high achievers to conquer their tempers. To avoid distraction and discover great insights. To achieve happiness and do the right thing.

In STILLNESS IS THE KEY, Holiday draws on a wide range of history's greatest thinkers, from Confucius to Seneca, Marcus Aurelius to Christian monks, to show us what stillness is and how it might be achieved.
