This years theme is Being Human. We will be examining all things that could define us as a species while looking at the most intriguing and interesting aspects about ourselves. We are excited for this special event on a day that evokes instant thoughts, feelings or memories. Friday the 13th. We are ending this decade and entering 2020 with all new possibilities. How will you define yourself next year?

More Details Coming Soon -

As a TEDxWinterPark attendee, you will be a part of our live studio audience. Please note that you may end up on film. While devices will be allowed in the theater this year, we ask that those attending understand we hope to have you there and present and will request that no video or live streaming to social media occur.

Our goal is to showcase practitioners, makers, dreamers and thinkers who are contemporary and thought provoking; who are pushing the boundaries of their own disciplines; and who are working towards a more purposeful, socially responsible future. The event is multi-disciplinary by nature and the speakers echo the various perspectives present in our city, state, country and planet.

We are calling all change-agents to attend. Are you ready to be inspired?

Tickets are general admission and include access to the TEDxWinterPark after party.

Ricky Williams

Evolutionary Astrologer - NFL player (Retired)
Title of Presentation: What Astrology can teach us about being human. Ricky is an American former football running back who played 12 seasons in the National Football League (NFL) and one season in the Canadian Football League (CFL). He played college football for the University of Texas, where he was a two-time All-America and won the Heisman Trophy. Ricky has become known in many circles as a unique healer with both an extensive knowledge base and the first-hand experience of a professional athlete. An integral part of Ricky’s approach to healing has come through the study of astrology, which he began in 2004 after living in an ashram during his first retirement from the NFL. Over the years, as he has wrestled with existential dilemmas in his own life, he has found time and time again that astrology offers him insights that have empowered him to transform wounds and traumas into access to internal resources and clarity of purpose.
