Daily Life Lessons with Zena Hitz: On Being Lost In Thought

This week, we spoke to Zena Hitz, author of Lost in Thought: The Hidden Pleasures of an Intellectual Life, a book which provides an invitation to readers from every walk of life to rediscover the impractical splendours of a life of learning.

In an overloaded, superficial, technological world, in which almost everything and everybody is judged by its usefulness, where can we turn for escape, lasting pleasure, contemplation, or connection to others? While many forms of leisure meet these needs, Zena Hitz writes, few experiences are so fulfilling as the inner life, whether that of a bookworm, an amateur astronomer, a birdwatcher, or someone who takes a deep interest in one of countless other subjects.

Listen to Zena's Daily Life Lesson where she talks about the importance and meaning of learning and how we can encourage limitless and peaceful learning. She suggests we have lost the art of learning; that it should be spontaneous, that it should come from a desire to know and ending in an understanding.
