Silence in the news: The joy of quiet with Pico Iyer and meditating MBAs on NPR

The world works in mysterious ways.

The video of a talk I had this spring at the Fowler with the amazing Pico Iyer (about his frequent retreats to a monastery to recalibrate, and the general topic of the Joy of Quiet) was posted yesterday…

…on the same day that this story I filed aired on Morning Edition about a professor at Claremont Graduate University who teaches MBA students about the joy (and importance) of quiet to success in their work lives.

It almost seems like quiet is in vogue! 😉  and yes, I get the irony that I’m telling you this via a medium that’s adding to the noise….

One thought on “Silence in the news: The joy of quiet with Pico Iyer and meditating MBAs on NPR

    Your book is interesting and well done but you send the wrong message on page 131. “Love was supposed to last forever”. I’m an 89 year old widowoer of over 5 years. My wife and I were married for 60 years, we had 6 kids, they all married and we now have 11 healthy grandchildren. I still love my wife. 5 of the children have had only one wife and 4 of them have been married over 25 years. No VD..Love forever is not a fairy tail. Those who do not love forever were in need of a diferent message and need to search more and practice a better life style. Sincerely Harlan L. Meyer, 1247 School Lane, Nashville, TN 37217.
