It's our final TED Talk for the season, so don't miss out this Tuesday!
Facilitators: Susan Levitt and Share DeWees
This week's topic relates to concerns many of us have, which we’ll examine as we view:
1. Everyone Around You Has a Story the World Needs to Hear - Dave Isay opened the first StoryCorps booth in New York’s Grand Central Terminal in 2003 with the intention of creating a quiet place where a person could honor someone who mattered to them by listening to their story. Since then, StoryCorps has evolved into the single largest collection of human voices ever recorded. Isay’s wish is to continue to grow this digital archive of the collective wisdom of humanity.
2. Say Your Truths and Seek Them in Others - In a lyrical, unexpectedly funny talk about heavy topics such as frayed relationships and the death of a loved one, Elizabeth Lesser describes the healing process of putting aside pride and defensiveness to make way for soul-baring and truth-telling. "You don't have to wait for a life-or-death situation to clean up the relationships that matter to you," she says. "Be like a new kind of first responder...the one to take the first courageous step toward the other."
