Jane Anne Staw, Author of SMALL @North

Known as someone who worried about every little thing, author Jane Anne Staw was one day inspired to think small. Her inspiration led her to learn to pay attention to the unfolding moments of life without the burden of worrying about what might come next.

Join us as Staw shares from Small: The Little We Need for Happiness, her collection of essays and observations, sharing her philosophy of small and the shift she experienced from overwhelm to calm, from isolation to connection, and the world of contentment she found in the most common occurrences.
