In Praise of Slowness: Changing the Cult of Speed

This week take a moment to slow down. At LearnOutLoud.com we must confess that we are quite addicted to speed. Audio learning itself is a form of multi-tasking which allows us to never slow down. But it's good to recognize and question this aspect of our hurried life styles, which author Carl Honore does in this lecture offered through the Cambridge forum.

He contrasts the speed at which Americans go versus other cultures around the world, and focuses on what can be lost in a culture addicted to going faster. This lecture is offered online from the WGBH Forum Network and is available on streaming audio and video as well as MP3 download.

This wise and accessible work gets to the heart of how busy women can find a center of inner peace even when life is swirling like a cyclone around them. This audio book will show you how to stop resisting your life, and how to start living in the center of the cyclone, where it's always peaceful. Life in balance is life lived from the inside out.

Once you find your inner balance, you can keep it whatever your outer circumstance may be, wherever in the life cycle you are. In this book you'll learn how to manage your energy; say no without feeling guilty; honor and respect yourself as a prerequisite for loving and caring for others; make peace with the past, welcome change; find your courage; be peaceful even in circumstances where happiness is not an option; manage your emotions; bury Superwoman and dance on her grave; banish the Drama Queen; live in the Now, follow your inner guidance; and be a beautiful mother, sister, aunt, daughter, lover, and friend--all by being your best, authentic self.
