Ted Talks at Passmore - The Lies Our Culture Tells Us About What Matters - and a Better Way to Live - David Brooks

Tuesday, December 17, 2019

What are TED Talks? TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design. TED is owned by a non-profit, non-partisan foundation. Its agenda is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversations. Topics are created and made available for use by TED. Join us as we dive into TED Talks at Passmore in a laidback yet informative environment including a 15 - 30 min video/talk and follow up discussions. Our society is in the midst of a social crisis, says op-ed columnist and author David Brooks: we're trapped in a valley of isolation and fragmentation. How do we find our way out? Based on his travels across the United States -- and his meetings with a range of exceptional people known as "weavers" -- Brooks lays out his vision for a cultural revolution that empowers us all to lead lives of greater meaning, purpose and joy. Min: 5/Max: 25. Facilitator: Meghan Davis
