TED TALKS: IDEAS WORTH SPREADING
First meeting: Noon - 1:30 p.m. Thursday, April 2, 2020, ONLINE
Co-sponsored with the Sausalito Library
As many of you will know, TED is a nonpartisan nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics -- from science to business to global issues -- in more than 110 languages. There are now literally thousands of TED talks on almost every subject imaginable.
Our format: we will screen two approximately 18-minute talks at each meeting, with time for discussion after each one.
The featured TEDs for our first meeting will be "What Really Matters at the End of Life" with B. J. Miller, a hospice and palliative medicine physician who thinks deeply about how to create a dignified, graceful end of life for his patients; and "The Future of Psychedelic Assisted Psychotherapy" with Rick Doblin, Ph. D., founder and executive director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS).
