In Real Life: Searching For Connection In High Tech Times With Jon Mitchell says
Join Charis in welcoming Atlanta native, Jon Mitchell, as he returns home to discuss his provocative new book on the links between spirituality and technology, In Real Life: Searching for Connection in High-Tech Times.

Technology helps us with our hardest work. It can also offer us endless distractions. Can technology enable us, as individuals and communities, to do our greatest possible work, the hard work of being a good person?

Jon Mitchell sets out to identify and explore the ways in which we can develop a more thoughtful relationship with technology. Rather than using technology as a medium for connecting with the world, he recommends we rethink our relationship with technology, using it as a resource that allows us to have a more intimate and personal relationship with the world around us, nature, and our loved ones. Mitchell offers concrete practices for the way we use technology in our daily lives. Mitchell uses his years of experience as both a tech journalist and a mindfulness practitioner to propose a rethinking of both the design of technology and its use. This is a Charis Circle Urban Sustainability and Wellness Program and the suggested donation is $5.
