Join us for a special event with renowned Buddhist teacher Stephen Batchelor and hear about his journey to becoming a secular Buddhist. He will also share insights from his latest book, The Art of Solitude.
In a time of social distancing and isolation, The Art of Solitude is a meditation on the beauty of solitude.
In a hyperconnected world that is at the same time plagued by social isolation, this book shows how to enjoy the inescapable solitude that is at the heart of human life.

“Whatever a soul is, the author goes a long way toward soothing it. A very welcome instance of philosophy that can help readers live a good life.”

~ Kirkus Reviews

The Art of Solitude is a marvel. Carefully constructed and entirely original, it sings with a haunting melody of wistful contemplation. Reading it is a true joy.”

~ Mark Epstein

“In this exquisite contemplation on solitude that is intimate, brave, and wise, Batchelor brings us to the vast center of his life and realization.”

~ Roshi Joan Halifax
