Finding Time to Feed our Souls

There is a tension within modern Western culture between the hurried, busy state of the realities of modern life and the slow, meaningful pursuit of the experiences and knowledge that add up to a life well lived. Western culture values achievement: moving forward in measurable increments, tirelessly smashing goals then setting new ones, diligently striving for more.

slow living is a mindful reassessment of how we divide our time

Modern life is infused with an unshakable sense that time is speeding up. We live in a hyper-connected world that brings with it an acute awareness of the possibilities that exist, and all these possibilities come with the looming sense that there will never be quite enough time to do all we want to do in life.
