American Culture tends to maximize a result. Wellness is not just about arbitrary measures like cholesterol levels, blood pressure, or C-section rates. Improving longevity adds years to our lives, but wellness adds life to our years. Wellness is about a healthy balance. Consider this balance through the lens of the masculine/feminine dynamic. There are many dualities in our lives that cannot be maximized—only balanced and managed.
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.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
