24/6: The Power of Unplugging One Day A Week
Join us for this pre-High Holy Day discussion, as Rabbi Mintz interviews Tiffany Shlain, Ken Goldberg and their daughters, about Tiffany's latest book exploring the value of their decade long practice of unplugging from screens each week for what they call their Technology Shabbat.
This program is recommended for the entire family. Tweens and teens encouraged to participate.
Books will be for sale at the event.
In 24/6, Tiffany Shlain explores how turning off screens one day a week can work wonders on your brain, body, and soul. Internet pioneer and renowned filmmaker Tiffany Shlain takes us on a provocative and entertaining journey through time and technology, introducing a strategy for living in our 24/7 world: turning off all screens for twenty-four hours each week. This practice, which she’s done for nearly a decade with her husband and kids (sixteen and ten), has completely changed their lives, giving them more time, productivity, connection, and presence. She and her family call it “Technology Shabbat.”
Drawn from the ancient ritual of Shabbat, living 24/6 can work for anyone from any background. With humor and wisdom, Shlain shares her story, offers lessons she has learned, and provides a blueprint for how to do it yourself. Along the way, she delves into the neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, and history of a weekly day of rest across cultures, making the case for why we need to bring this ritual back.
