Got Distraction?

Every day, all day we humans are distracted. In recent times, our collective brains are more and more called away by ever demanding electronic devices. What is distracting us individually and as a species, what are we being distracted from, and what can we do about it? Come learn about distraction, both as a present-day Sisyphean phenomenon, and one that has been part of humanity’s challenges, well, forever. Texts to be called upon include Stolen Focus by journalist Johann Hari, and the Wandering Mind: What Medieval Monks Tell Us About Distraction by scholar Jamie Kreiner.
