Event Details

Headphones in. Volume up. Screen on. Notification flashes. Don’t leave me without distractions! …Are we afraid to be alone?

One famous comedian has recently noted how humans, when faced with being alone in a room without distractions, are afraid of the silence of being by themselves and instead hide away from the existential thoughts lingering in the back of the mind by keeping constant distractions and interactions to fill the silence. What is this strange phenomenon? And why is it happening to our modern advanced society?

Let’s turn the mirror on the mind to stir up the talk on our strangest human behaviors. Join us for a discussion then enjoy a delicious vegan dinner and musical meditation!
