Wisdom 2.0 Youth
Sept 17 2011
Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California
Teachers, educators, parents, mindfulness teachers, and others discuss the need to balance the "inner technologies" of wisdom, awareness, and compassion with cell phones, computer games, and social networks.
While pushing away and renouncing all modern technology is seen as pointless and unnecessary, likewise does a life where family members spends the majority of each evening glued to their individual screens, and where kids cannot sit still and need constant external stimuli to keep them entertained.
The Wisdom 2.0 Youth Conference explores this balance and asks the question,
"How do adults embody the very qualities we want to pass along to the youth in our life?"

Evolve consciousness, and fix the broken places with Me – because I cannot do it without you. I need your service. My gift to you in love," whispers God in our ear even as She caresses our heart, "My gift to you is to make you my partner and allow Myself to be – at least in part – dependent on you!" - Marc Gafni
Explore how creativity appears to a visual artist, a musician, a writer, or any other artistic pursuit.
