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.
Through our series of conferences, meet-ups, and workshops, Wisdom 2.0 strives to bring this conversation to the world in an accessible, innovative, and inclusive way.
Our flagship event is an annual multi-day conference, which for 2014 will be held February 14th - 17th at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis. Hosted by Soren Gordhamer, author of Wisdom 2.0, the event is more an interactive experience than a sit-and-listen conference. Find more information below, or visit our FAQ.
Soren Gordhamer, Founder of Wisdom 2.0
The people at Wisdom 2.0 come from all over the world and from many vocations, including coaches; technology staff from Apple, Microsoft, and Twitter; as well as venture capitalists and entrepreneurs.
Participants share a common interest: to live with greater wisdom, purpose, and meaning,
while using technology in ways that create a more open and healthy culture.
Speakers come from a variety of sectors, including technology, wisdom traditions, neuroscience, game development, and more. Past speakers have included the founders of Facebook, Twitter, eBay, Zynga, and Paypal, along with wisdom teachers from various traditions.
Wisdom 2.0 explores topics that cross sectors, borders, and party lines. In previous years we've explored wisdom in society, veteran's rights, education, coaching, mindfulness in tech, politics, business, neuroscience, and much, much more.
The events as much about making connections between people as about the presentations on stage. There are many opportunities to connect with people who share your interests, and explore overlaps and potential projects.
Every year we also throw a party (or two!) where people can connect, play, and enjoy both dance and silliness.
