This week is Wisdom 2.0!
The annual Wisdom 2.0 interactive conference 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.
How can we live with wisdom, awareness, and compassion in the digital age? Wisdom 2.0 responds to this question with presentations, conversations, interviews, meditations, yoga practices, and workshops run by leaders in business, tech, society, and spirituality.
I volunteered at the Wisdom 2.0 conference last year, and was blown away by the level of compassion and awareness that took place. Buddhist monks sharing spotlight with Google executives, together, working to solve societal issues that have grown from the technology advancement we’re creating together.
This year, mindfulness leaders like Jon Kabat-Zinn and Jack Kornfield will join together with business leaders like Eileen Fisher and Karen May (Google), and other luminaries like Byron Katie, Alanis Morissette, and Congressman Tim Ryan to share ideas on how to bring more awareness, purpose, and meaning to our modern world—while using technology in ways that create a more open and healthy culture.
I’ll be back in San Francisco this year for the event, and couldn’t be more excited about attending. While the conference is sold out, the mainstage speakers will be recorded and live streamed on the Wisdom 2.0 website, so you can sit in on the conversations and presentations. Follow me on Twitter @MelissaEisler for updates from the conference, hashtag #widsom2conf to join the community, and check back here post-conference … I’ll be sure to share some of the wisdom I’ve picked up.
Get inspired by watching along. The conference is from Feb 27-March 1. You can view the sessions in real time, or watch the videos on their site later. Enjoy!
