Umenie ticha (TED)


Prečítajte si nečakané vyznanie uznávaného novinára a cestovateľa o tom, že ticho môže byť jedinečným dobrodružstvom. Pico Iyer prežil svoj život cestovaním po celom svete - od Veľkonočných ostrovov cez Etiópiu, Kubu až po Kátmandú - a písaním o svojich cestách. V tejto knihe sa paradoxne venuje svojej radosti z pokoja a ticha, na ktorú ho upozornil svetoznámy pesničkár Leonard Cohen."V určitom bode všetky horizontálne cesty celého sveta prestanú dávať zmysel a vy už nebudete túžiť ísť hlbšie, zažívať výzvy a nečakané okamihy, pretože pohyb je najdôležitejší v pokoji. V dobe rýchlosti som si uvedomil, že nič nemôže byť lepšie než spomaliť. V dobre ruchu nemôže byť nič drahšie ako pozornosť. A v dobe neustáleho pohybu nie je nič naliehavejšie než potreba sedieť v tichu."Ponorte sa do ticha a nájdite nový vzťah k svetu tak, že sa od neho odstrihnete.

A nyugalom művészete


"A sebesség korában nincs üdítőbb, mint a lassúság. A zavaró körülmények korában nincs nagyobb luxus, mint a koncentrált figyelem."A csendes üldögélés lehet a legnagyobb kaland az életben - állítja Pico Iyer, az ünnepelt útikönyvszerző, aki bejárta az egész világot. ... Folytatás Leonard Cohen, Mahátma Gandhi, Marcel Proust és különböző innovatív vállalatok példáján keresztül mutatja be, hogy a magányos elvonulás növeli a kreativitást, és olyan életformát kínál, amely képes ellensúlyozni a modern világ őrült rohanását. A(z) A nyugalom művészete (Könyv) szerzője Pico Iyer.

Ted Books Box Set


Three smart, playful, original TED books from a leading architect, designer, and writer in one collection—The Art of Stillness, The Future of Architecture in 100 Buildings, and Judge This—inspire a more creative life. In The Art of Stillness: Adventures in Going Nowhere, travel writer Pico Iyer considers the unexpected rewards of staying put and reveals a counterintuitive truth: The more ways we have to connect, the more we seem desperate to unplug. Why might a lifelong traveler like Iyer, who has journeyed from Easter Island to Kathmandu, think that sitting quietly in a room might be the ultimate adventure? In The Art of Stillness Iyer reveals there’s never been a greater need to slow down, tune out, and give ourselves permission to be still. An architect and founder of Architizer.com, Kushner guides readers through the innovative experimentation within the world’s most exciting structures. With stunning full color photographs and detailed explanations, The Future of Architecture in 100 Buildings captures the soaring confidence, the thoughtful intelligence, the futuristic wonder, and at times the sheer whimsy of the world’s most inspired and future-looking buildings.First impressions are everything. They dictate whether something stands out, how we engage with it, whether we buy it, and how we feel. In Judge This, travel through a day in the life of renowned designer Chip Kidd as he takes in first impressions of all kinds. Follow this visual journey with Kidd as he encounters and engages with everyday design, breaking down the good, the bad, the absurd, and the brilliant as only a designer can. Judge This is a design love story, exposing the often invisible beauty and betrayal in simple design choices ones most of us never even think to notice.

The Art of Stillness - Adventures in Going Nowhere


Part of the TED series: The Art of StillnessIn this age of constant movement and connectedness, when so many of us are all over the place, perhaps staying in one place - and locating everything we need for peace and happiness there - is a more exciting prospect, and a greater necessity than ever before.Through his extensive interviews with creative geniuses of our day, as well as historical records and his own life experience, acclaimed author Pico Iyer paints a picture of why so many have found such richness in stillness and how - from Marcel Proust to Blaise Pascal to Phillipe Starck - they've gathered such rare and exhilarating fruits there. He explores the counter-intuitive truth: the more ways we have to connect, the more many of us seem desperate to unplug.In both The Art of Stillnessand his captivating TEDTALK Where is Home?, Iyer reflects that this is perhaps the reason why more and more people - even those with no religious commitment - seem to be turning to yoga, or meditation, or tai chi. These aren't New Age fads so much as ways to connect with what could be called the wisdom of an earlier age. There is even a growing trend toward observing an "Internet sabbath" every week, turning off online connections from Friday night to Monday morning, so as to try to revive those ancient customs known as family meals and conversation.
