The Joy of Missing Out – Finding Balance in a Wired World, by Christina Crook. Most of us can’t throw away our smartphone or cut ourselves off from the Internet. But we can all rethink our relationship with the digital world, discovering new ways of introducing balance and discipline to the role of technology in our lives. This book is for anyone wishing to rediscover quietness of mind, and seeking a sense of peace amidst the cacophony of the modern world. Read all about Christina, her book, her TV and radio appearances here.
This is a free event.
