Brother Yusuf: Nature’s Effect on Attention

Brother Yusuf Burgess has been working with inner city youth for decades. He’s seen children so addicted to video games they no longer even speak to each other  – “it’s them and their machine”. But, through an amazing number of programs he leads to connect inner city kids with the natural world, Brother Yusuf observes a marked change in their mode of attention. Time in front of computer and TV screens tends to promote passivity. But when he takes them out for adventures on land or water, kids become alert and open. Listen to him describe this shift!
