Day of Unplugging Makes Triumphant Return

Day of Unplugging, an annual opportunity for students to put down their YouTubes and iPager gadgets and connect with friends by not answering their texts, is back. This time there are a whole series of events by the Wesleyan Jewish community—and free freaking t-shirts. What’s not to like (except not on Facebook)? Sydney Lewis ’14 has more:

Disconnect to reconnect: join the Wesleyan Jewish community as we turn off our technology (phones, iPods, TVs, computers) for a day of reflection and quality time with real people.

    This may be of interest: Kirtan with Shubalananda, info at http://www.shubalananda.com. Friday Feb 10 at 8pm, venue: Yoga in Middletown, 438 Main Street (door by Joe Riff’s Music). Kirtan is the ecstatic call-and-response chanting of the holy names of God (mostly from Hinduism). Features myself, music grad student Joseph Getter, on bamboo flute. It should also be an authentic experience with real people. All the best for this event on campus, too.
