Event description

Description


Join us for a screening of Manoush Zomorodi’s TED Talk, "How Boredom Can Lead to Your Most Brilliant Ideas," followed by a facilitated discussion with Dr. Joseph Rhinewine of Portland Mindfulness Therapy.

Inspired by the 2019 Hillsboro Reads book selection, "Bored and Brilliant: How Spacing Out Can Unlock Your Most Productive and Creative Self" by Manoush Zomorodi.

"Bored and Brilliant" inspires readers to develop a more mindful relationship with technology, especially smartphones, and challenges us to find out what happens when we let ourselves be “bored” rather than engaging in constant digital distractions. Based on a series of challenges on author Manoush Zomorodi’s podcast, Note to Self, the book guides readers through experiments designed to help us reassess our technology habits, find time to unplug, and stimulate our creative minds.
