The place that travel writer Pico Iyer would most like to go? Nowhere. In a counterintuitive and lyrical meditation, Iyer takes a look at the incredible insight that comes with taking time for stillness. In our world of constant movement and distraction, he teases out strategies we all can use to take back a few minutes out of every day, or a few days out of every season. It’s the talk for anyone who feels overwhelmed by the demands for our world.
Dana Ciraulo Young ’83 has a love of media relations and knack for coming up with big ideas. She’s put those talents to use at Berkeley-based One World Play Project, a B Corporation company that promotes play as a way to help heal and rebuild communities devastated by war, disaster, disease and poverty.
One World Play Project makes, sells and distributes products and services to enable play around the world, especially for those living in the harshest environments where play is nearly non-existent. Collaborating with sponsors, organizations and individuals, One World Play Project works to support, enable and expand the transformative power of play in all its forms, anywhere and everywhere.

“While attending a Holiday event at the Wingtip Club with Mark, I had the privilege to listen to the Pacific Boychoir Academy, and to my great delight, two of our students, who are graduates of the Academy, participated in the event, Julian Nesbitt and Nathan Savant. They were incredible!! I had chills through the entire concert, and I could not have been more proud to applaud and cheer for them! They brought me to tears! Beautiful voices!” – Christine Garavaglia
