Wisdom in the Digital Age

Soren Gordhamer
Founder of Wisdom 2.0 Conference, Author
Date: Saturday, June 15, 2013
Time: 10am - 3pm
Venue: Anubhuti Retreat Center

We will spend the day exploring the context of wisdom in our modern digital lives - what does this mean and how can we bring ancient wisdom in the context of a digital age. We will explore what it means to live with greater awareness and purpose in a culture moving faster and faster. This will be a day of deep exploration on how our lives are wanting to unfold, and each of our particular paths. We will investigate the challenges and opportunities of our times, and what this means for each of us as we move from a focus on information and knowledge to a wisdom-based culture.

Soren Gordhamer works with individuals and groups on living with greater mindfulness and purpose in our technology-rich age. He is founder and host of the Wisdom 2.0 Conference, and the author of Wisdom 2.0: Ancient Secrets for the Creative and Constantly Connected (HarperOne, 2009), one of the first books to explore living with mindfulness and wisdom within the context of our modern technology age.

As project director for Richard Gere's public charity, Healing the Divide, he organized The Healing through Great Difficulty conference with his Holiness, the Dalai Lama. He has been featured in various media, including GQ Magazine and Newsweek.com, and has taught mindfulness programs everywhere from youth in New York City juvenile halls, to trauma workers in Rwanda, teachers in Nigeria, and to staff at US technology companies.

He spent a year walking through parts of the United States, India, Pakistan, and Japan as a part of the Global Walk for a Livable World. He later founded the New York City-based non-profit, The Lineage Project, which offers awareness-based practices to at-risk and incarcerated teens.
