Dinners & Conversations: Tracking Wonder: The Surprising Survival Skill for the Early-21st Century

With Jeffrey Davis

April 19, 2018

A Community Salon Series
Join us for a cozy evening of conversation along with a local and delicious homemade dinner created by our in house chef.

Evening topic:
Tracking Wonder: The Surprising Survival Skill for the Early-21st Century

Cynicism is easy. In trying times – personally, professionally, culturally – the stance of cynicism is to shut down, distrust, and surrender.

The challenge we’re each called upon is to remember who we – and each other – are at our core.

How? Track wonder.

Anthropologist Melvin Konner calls wonder “the hallmark of our species and the central feature of the human spirit.”

M.I.T. Media Lab Director Joi Ito calls wonder along with openness important survival skills for our times.

A few texts from Eastern traditions reference the experience of wonder as the central experience of reality.

What is wonder? How do we recognize it in ourselves and in the people right around us? Why must we cultivate more of it in our work, our work place, and our communities if we are not only to survive but also ultimately to thrive in these trying times?

Join us for an experiential conversation facilitated by author, speaker, and teacher Jeffrey Davis – who heads up the international community and boutique consultancy Tracking Wonder.

Dinner is served from 6:30-7:30pm and the conversation may continue until 9:30pm.

$20.00 per person
