Wisdom 2.0

Dan Harris on Meditation at Wisdom 2.0

I am a big fan of the Wisdom 2.0 conference; the conference explores the ways we can mindfully stay connected through technology in ways which benefit others.  The most recent conference was held in San Francisco in February, 2015.  This video of Dan Harris is from the 2014 conference in which he discusses the benefits of meditation.  I like the video because Harris uses simple terms to describe his practice. 

 

Single-tasking

Christine Carter is a sociologist and happiness researcher who recently spoke at the Wisdom 2.0 Conference in San Francisco.   The topic of her talk was "Full Plate, Empty Life: How To Achieve More By Doing Less".  Her talk explores the benefits of "single-tasking" in our fast paced multi-tasking society.  As I grow older, time has become more precious to me.  I'm interested in having a more grounded, satisfying life.  I hope this talk inspires you to consider slowing down and savoring the task at hand.
