In this season of pandemic, stillness is an uninvited guest. Perhaps, this guest has something to teach us. This book study will be a 6-week long conversation about how we might begin to receive this unexpected stranger of stillness with curiosity, openness, and, in time, even gratitude.“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?… The Art of Stillness paints a picture of why so many—from Marcel Proust to Mahatma Gandhi to Emily Dickinson—have found richness in stillness. Ultimately, Iyer shows that, in this age of constant movement and connectedness, perhaps staying in one place is a more exciting prospect, and a greater necessity than ever before.” (Amazon)
