We’ve partnered up again with Wisdom 2.0 this year as a Community Partner and couldn’t be more thrilled to be aligned with the folks are doing at this special event which is now in its ninth year. Having been absorbed in the technology industry for more than two decades, I love that their focus has been and continues to be about exploring the intersection of wisdom and technology.
Wisdom goes deep in this case, so from tribe gatherings and yoga classes to sessions on mindfulness, consciousness and purposeful business models, they cover it.
Join us along with Byron Katie (The Work of Byron Katie); Jon Kabat-Zinn (Wherever You Go, There You Are); Rhonda Magee (UCSF Professor of Law), Alex Tew (Calm CEO) and countless others in San Francisco from February 22-24, 2018. Goldie Hawn is even showing up this year, who I was fortunate to meet at TED years ago and adore.
This year, they aim to bring together more than 3,500 people from 30+ countries to discuss, engage and experiment. In addition to a crowd-favorite People’s Stage, where there will be breakout sessions led and chosen by conference participants, you will hear from some of the greatest business and technology leaders of our age, including researchers, technology innovators, authors, wisdom teachers, healers and yogis, creators and like-minded contemporaries. Among other poignant and important questions, they’ll address presence, purpose and wisdom.
“How do we live with greater presence, purpose, and wisdom in the digital age?”
On the main stage, they’ll having presentations, Q&As and conversations with over 50 speakers.
In the ever so fun Embodiment room, you’ll be able to ‘get into your body’ and experiment activities to get you to that zen place or at a minimum, get you to think about the world and your role in it in a brand new way.
They also throw great networking gatherings and parties in the evenings as well as offer Community Dinners, where you can sign up one of their Birds of a Feather dinners. For those familiar with these, you know that they’re independently hosted dinners focusing on a core subject matter. Last year, I recall fascinating options like building conscious technology, robotics, the environment, creativity, meditation and work, women and business and a whole lot more.
Wisdom 2.0 addresses the great challenge of our age: to not only live connected to one another through technology, but to do so in ways that are beneficial to our own well-being, effective in our work, and useful to the world.
