Journeying Into The Present: My Experience With Mindfulness – Drew Schott

Written by on June 9, 2018 in Conscious Evolution, Conscious Living with 0 Comments


In his talk, Drew Schott will explore living in the moment as a concept, ways in which individuals can achieve it, examples of living in the moment, and why it is important to be present. Drawing on his personal experience, Drew will explain how living in the moment has changed the way he sees his surrounding environment and how it has shaped the way that he goes about living. As he has developed in his mindfulness, Drew says, he has not only become more peaceful, but has also found ways to slow down and be able to appreciate the current moment, no matter how stressful the situation. Personal anecdotes, along with examples of mindfulness in our society, in addition to the research of experts on living in the moment, will be interwoven into his talk. Drew Schott is a junior whose interests include United States history, classical studies and journalism. He participates in various academic and extracurricular activities, such as Model United Nations, working as a features and arts editor for Tower, the School newspaper; and giving families tours of campus as a member of Gold Key.

Because of his active academic schedule, Drew wanted to explore solutions to the stress he experienced, and discovered a solution that he has followed ever since: living in the moment. Living in the moment has not only allowed Drew to become less stressed, but also has allowed him to be able to recognize the present moment and enjoy his surroundings, no matter the situation. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
