exploring living with
awareness, wisdom, and compassion
in the technology age.
kevwrex hooked us up with live streaming video to hear some world renowned speakers exploring the intersection of mindfulness and technology.
as described on their website:
"The Wisdom 2.0 Conference is a one-of-a-kind event that launched in Silicon Valley at the end of April, 2010, and brought together people from a variety of disciplines, including technology leaders, Zen teachers, neuroscientists, and academics to explore how we can live with deeper meaning and wisdom in our technology-rich age."
here is a video with some highlights:
many amazing minds contributed to this conversation. check out the list of people -> such a wide array of wonderful + inspiring thinkers!
as a result, i have spent the last few days in deep contemplation of mindfulness. i've been pondering my role as a teacher in these issues, social media and the ego, the awesome potential for connection or disconnection, and the new era of global consciousness.
