Please note: The Friday, March 8 event has been cancelled:
“Unfortunately, we must cancel these events because Br. David Vryhof is ill and has been advised by his doctor not to travel. If you have already registered for Friday’s supper, you do not need to do anything. If you registered and made a donation for Saturday, you will receive an email from a member of the parish staff about your donation.”

“The Stillness We Ache For”
Thursday, March 28, 2019
7:00-9:30 p.m., St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church

Pico Iyer, had become known not only for his travel writing and novels, but also for his writing and speaking about quiet and stillness. Since 1992, he has been based in rural Japan with his wife, and spends part of each year in a Benedictine hermitage in California.

Pico Iyer is known not only for his travel writing and novels, but also for his writing and speaking about quiet and stillness. At a time of round-the-clock news, beeping phones and escalating stress, it can be harder than ever to remember what we care for and what really matters. Drawing on his time in monasteries Eastern and Western, calling upon his 44 years of talks with the XIVth Dalai Lama, and trying to maintain his sanity in an age of acceleration and distraction, journalist and essayist Pico Iyer shares practical tips and suggestions for how to make a life as well as a living in a world of clutter and confusion, in “The Stillness We Ache For.”

You may also choose to read, ahead of the session, his book The Art of Stillness.
