1. Productive Middle Ground: Clearing the Mental Chatter of Digital Overload Jeffrey Besecker 53:58


In the rise of both our race for human evolution and within the context of that ever-popular television series “Star Trek” –

It once was viewed as the final frontier of our advancement as a species. Then began the dawning of a new age – the digital revolution.

A time and place that seemingly and somewhat insidiously began to occupy nearly every nook and cranny of our shared sense of spaciousness as a human collective. Much like the spiritual awakening of the 60s – We heralded it as the dawning of a new age of Aquarius.

A new Impetus in our ever-expanding sense of being as humans. Seeing it as more pertinent and portentous in significance than the invention of either writing or printing.

And then it happened…

We awakened to frequently find ourselves lost in these dark vestiges of a vast digital wasteland….Searching for the relative light of day – Our digital usage had become a behavior that had seemingly grown, at times, to be toxic in nature.

Discovering how we are living in a digital world – yet ever remain fairly resolute as analog creatures. And what we often find ourselves desperately in need of…is a simple method to digitally detox.

-If you find yourself in need of space to think deeply, rest more fully, and spend time with loved ones away from a screen, then this conversation is one you won’t want to miss.
