When was the last time you felt silence? The concept of silence may be a distant cousin in our everyday lives. Listen and learn. Paine extends an invitation for us to open our minds to the power silence has on our psyche.

Gage served as Vice President for Student Affairs at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) for over five years and is directly responsible for services for more than 50,000 students, including residence life, health and counseling services, student publications and media, recreational sports, student organizations, leadership development, and university unions.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
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).
