The Power of Off: The Mindful Way to Stay Present (and Sane) in a Virtual World

Do you compulsively check your smartphone? Always connected to the Web? When did you last see your child’s face without the glow of a screen on it? Our addiction to technology is real. In the digital world, we have far more possibilities but find less meaning, take more selfies but feel less self-worth, communicate more but feel less connected.  To register:

ONGOING groups/talks: gathering monthly (in NYC), I have created a sangha of awareness, compassion and curiosity. I offer a mindfulness-based, non-multi-tasking evening of meditation and dialogue, an opportunity to drop out of the noise inside and outside the mind, quiet the distractions of our device-driven world, and come home to our hearts. Our time together is an opportunity to land in presence together, live our true selves fully, and rediscover ourselves as spiritual beings on a human journey. For more information, contact:

In addition, I will be offering several new workshops upon the release of my upcoming book, “The Power of Off: The Mindful Way to Stay Sane in a Virtual World” (Sounds True, November, 2016).
