TED Talks

The first Monday each month, we’ll take advantage of the TED website and its focus on ideas worth spreading. We’ll view an engaging video lecture and join in facilitated discussion moderated by Rev. Kate.

Location: Nursery – Mount Vernon Unitarian Church, 1909 Windmill Lane, Alexandria, VA

Topics will be announced the week proceeding each session.

Past video lectures include:

All it Takes is 10 Mindful Minutes – Andy Puddicombe: When is the last time you did absolutely nothing for 10 whole minutes? Not texting, talking or even thinking? Mindfulness expert Andy Puddicombe describes the transformative power of doing just that: Refreshing your mind for 10 minutes a day, simply by being mindful and experiencing the present moment. (No need for incense or sitting in uncomfortable positions.)

What turn out not to be true? When Casey Gerald’s religion failed him, he searched for something new to believe in — in business, in government, in philanthropy — but found only false saviors. In this moving talk, Gerald urges us all to question our beliefs and embrace uncertainty.
