DLD14 – Paulo Coelho and Arianna Huffington

Our world is swimming in data and drowning for wisdom. — Arianna Huffington

A fascinating conversation between Brazilian writer Paulo Coelho author of The Alchemist and founder of the Huffington Post Arianna Huffington that took place this morning at DLD14 in Munich.

We live in the past or the future, but not the present. We accumulate stuff, but fail to address our well being. We fail to follow our dreams.

Story teller Steph Bradley spent six months walking around England storytelling and collecting stories. Tales she tells in Tales of Our Times. What she found was people are happy without stuff, and happiest when they are sharing and helping others.

When the world’s 85 richest people have as much as poorest 3.5 billion, we know something is very very wrong.

Arianna Huffington ends the conversation by telling the story of The two drops of oil.

In the UK, Manuscript Found in Accra, is on special offer in WHSmith:

Manuscript Found in Accra, set in Jerusalem on the eve of the attack by the Crusaders, is the latest from Paulo Coelho.
