Keynote + Workshop // Global Educators Leadership Summit

Christina presents at a Global Educators Summit in San Antonio on the theme of Engaging the Culture for the Common Good.

Keynote // Coming Closer: Experiencing and offering sanctuary in a hyper-connected world

Christina Crook's book, The Joy of Missing Out: Finding Balance in a Wired World, has made her leading voice on technology and human flourishing. Through her writing and speaking she reveals how key shifts in our thinking can enable us to draw closer to one another, taking up the good burdens of local work and responsibilities. She writes about the value of focus, making space to create, and the meaning we find in more limited connections. She challenges the Western values of power, control, and success, revealing how wonder, trust, and discipline are central to the experience of being human and the keys to our joy.

Workshop // The Joy of Missing Out

The average person spends more than two hours a day on social media. That's 5.5 years over a lifetime. If we cut that by even 40%, you'd be getting back two years of your life. What we regret most at the end of our lives isn't missed tweets or fancy job titles. It's the deeper things — missed opportunities to love, to explore our curiosities, and to spend our time well. In this workshop, thought leader Christina Crook will help you identify your blind spots, rewire your online habits and help you from surviving to thriving by reconnecting to what truly brings you joy.
