We spend up to a third of our lives sleeping and yet the world of sleep, how it works, what happens in our brains while asleep remains a mysterious and compelling aspect of what it is to be human. David Randall, reporter and journalist dives deep into the mystery of sleep after his own sleepwalking adventure and gives us a robust tour of the world inside your head while you are sleeping. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear him describe his research and discoveries in his New York times best seller, Dreamland. You’ll never look at your pillow the same way again and you will probably want to spend more time there….
David K. Randall is a senior reporter at Reuters. He has previously written for The New York Times, New York magazine, Forbes, and the Associated Press, covering topics ranging from financial fraud to a unicycle club that meets at Grant’s Tomb. He is an adjunct professor of journalism at New York University and lives in Brooklyn, New York.

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” –Antoine de Saint-Exupery
We believe we are making it better by shielding ourselves from our own pain. This is a fool’s errand, for the pain we refuse to feel and acknowledge doesn’t dissipate from our lacking attention, but rather collects in our heart center with a weightiness that we often cannot name or discern. So fearful are we, of the potential of a broken heart, that we inadvertently refuse to open our hearts at all.
