I really enjoyed this TEDx talk by Eoin Finn in Courtenay, BC. Eoin has been studying Eastern and Western philosophy since the late 80s, is a yogi and a surfer. He talks about how our society has become so economy-based that we are no longer connecting to each other on a human level. He had a moment of “enlightenment” while lying in a hammock in Costa Rica in 2006. He wanted to share it so he brought hammocks to San Francisco, Vancouver, and Toronto in an effort to get people to slow down and connect.
There are a lot of takeaway ideas here, the one that stood out to me most was this:
Love blurs the line of where we end and where others begin.
We are all connected to each other and to this universe. Take 20 minutes out of your busy lives to give this a watch.
