"Deceleration (that is, moving at a slower pace) is an important part of it, to be sure, but the crux of Slow research is less about a register of speed than it is about awareness—and especially about the shifts in perception and positioning that can be provoked when we commit to more expansive ways of being in and of the world. That means looking more closely and listening more deeply, noticing fine details and attuning to processes, and at the same time adopting a wider, more holistic view that situates our experiences within larger webs of relations, spaces, and times."
