Waiting For Wisdom (2.0)

"How can we live with greater presence, meaning, and mindfulness in the technology age? -- Wisdom 2.0

Last week I was in Boston to begin working on an entrepreneurial program for ministers.   This week I'm in the city of my birth - San Francisco - to attend  Wisdom 2.0, a conference that promises to explore the 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.   

The list of speakers and workshops is impressive and I can't wait for the conference to start tomorrow evening.  I discovered Wisdom 2.0 by the most modern of ways, searching for business and spirituality on the internet.  Several of the people I interviewed in Silicon Valley mentioned the conference favorably so I signed up.  There are people who are wisdompreneurs, who are some of the leaders in the fields of consciousness and meditation and who are the movers and shakers of many of the leading technology companies in the world.  I suspect everyone will be a calltrepreneur (and probably doesn't even know it yet!)

My plan is to write something about the conference as many days as I can.  If you are interested in catching some of the speakers go to the Wisdom 2.0 website where almost everything will be live-streamed.  I look forward to getting some new and old wisdom and sharing it as best I can.  These are amazing times we live in full of challenges, opportunities and new possibilities and problems every day.  May we find ways to live with more presence, meaning and mindfulness in this age and every age that follows.
