Iyer has spent the past several decades on the move, incessantly hopping from one far-flung destination _ Ethiopia, Morocco, Indonesia _ to another. But the globetrotting travel writer is now convinced the most exciting place to go is nowhere at all. (AP Photo/TED, Ryan Lash)

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.
