In this provocative TEDx experience, Sean emphasizes that self expression through spoken word poetry is fun & life affirming. We use thousands of words a day and our own words impact our thoughts, feelings, body & beliefs on a deep inner level. In a world where depression, suicide, indecision, apathy, corruption in family or government, wars inside & out exist...it's time we took our words & how they connect to our actions more seriously...and more imaginatively.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
