Is well-being best achieved in accepting what is, or in passionately engaging in what is yet to be? Technology lawyer and writer Fred Pinto links counterintuitive findings from philosophy, wisdom studies, and psychology to tease out the idea that finding ourselves comes as a result of losing our firmly held ideas of ourselves first. In a modern world that encourages self-obsession, this talk is for everyone who wants to achieve more authentic forms of acceptance and transcendence.
