Brother David

I’ve long been a fan of Brother David Steindl-Rast and his Gratefulness network and was pleased to see that he’d been invited to give a TED talk on Happiness, earlier this year. TED has a bit of a reputation for not being keen on religious or spiritual speakers so it is always a boon when such an eminent one slips under the radar.

Want to be happy? You can see the 14 minute talk here.

Over on Vimeo, Brother David has given a series of interviews as a form of Spiritual Biography to the New School at Commonweal. There’s about 7 hours of material and it is lovely to have access to this.
