We are excited to welcome back bestselling author Ryan Holiday to share insights from his latest book, an Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller & Wall Street Journal Bestseller, Stillness is the Key.

More than ever, people are overwhelmed. They face obstacles and egos and competition. Stillness Is the Key offers a simple but inspiring antidote to the stress of 24/7 news and social media. The stillness that we all seek is the path to meaning, contentment, and excellence in a world that needs more of it than ever.

In The Obstacle Is the Way and Ego Is the Enemy, Ryan Holiday made ancient wisdom wildly popular with a new generation of leaders in sports, politics, and technology. In his new book, Stillness Is the Key, Holiday draws on timeless Stoic and Buddhist philosophy to show why slowing down is the secret weapon for those charging ahead.

All great leaders, thinkers, artists, athletes, and visionaries share one indelible quality. It enables them to conquer their tempers. To avoid distraction and discover great insights. To achieve happiness and do the right thing. Ryan Holiday calls it stillness—to be steady while the world spins around you.

During his talk, Ryan will outline a path for achieving this ancient, but urgently necessary way of living. Drawing on a wide range of history’s greatest thinkers, from Confucius to Seneca, Marcus Aurelius to Thich Nhat Hahn, John Stuart Mill to Nietzsche, he will show us that stillness is not mere inactivity, but the doorway to self-mastery, discipline, and focus.

BONUS: All attendees will receive a copy of Ryan’s book, Stillness Is the Key (a $20 value).
