When a renowned travel writer like Pico Iyer writes a book about going nowhere, itâ€™s clear that the need to bring stillness into our hectic lives has never been more urgent.
TED Books is proud to announce the release of our second hardcover book, The Art of Stillness: Adventures in Going Nowhere.
In this gorgeously lyrical book, Iyer reveals that the people who create our technology are often the same ones at the forefront of the call for unplugging and stillness. But seeking inner peace is far from a New Age idea, and Iyer draws on the lives of everyone from Emily Dickinson to Ghandi to Leonard Cohen to show how this age-old practice is more relevant than ever before.
You can read an excerpt of the book.
We think you'll find The Art of Stillness: Adventures in Going Nowhere an important readâ€”hopefully one youâ€™ll return to again and againâ€”as a reminder to bring stillness into your own life.
"In the end, all our journeys have to bring us home."
Our very best,
The TED Team
