In Praise of Distraction

  • HOME 4 Haarlemmerweg Amsterdam, NH, 1014 BE Netherlands (map)

We spend almost half our waking life in a state of distraction so let's get to know this aspect of ourselves.

In this interactive workshop, we will learn more about the phenomenon of mind-wandering and try some simple experiments using the portable laboratory of our own mind and experience for ourselves how meditation can help us to work with our distraction and make friends with our wandering mind. 

We will also hear from Marieke how difficult it is to teach computers to be distracted and how AI improves by learning to get distracted.
