Wisdom 2.0 which takes place in San Francisco on February 20-23, is a conference unlike any other. Born out of a desire to bridge the seemingly vast gap between the digitally connected world and the need for wisdom and human connection, the event convenes those engaged in tapping into the wisdom of the ages, be it spirituality, meditation or movements for social justice. The wisdom of emotional intelligence weaves through many of the events and talks.
Wisdom’s founder, author Soren Gordhamer walked around the world and as he was on his journey, came up with the idea of the gathering. He says, “We’re finding in an age which is becoming more digital, people are asking how to find the right balance between all these digital devices, and the face to face world. It is a gathering of people that are not just part of the same community, but people who are gathered together to find meaning in the context of this digital world. That’s what we serve.”
Among the speakers whose names you may recognize are songwriter, rapper, Prince Ea, the “king of brainy hip-hop” whose videos about connection and embracing real communication have been viewed by millions people.

And scientist/author, Jon Kabat-Zin who is a professor of medicine emeritus at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, where he was founding executive director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society, and founder (in 1979) and former director of its world-renown Stress Reduction Clinic. His work has inspired countless people to embrace the mind-body connection through meditation.
Ram Dass, author of “Be Here Now” and other groundbreaking books, will share his wisdom on death and dying and spirituality. Zen priests, Tibetan monks, Qi Gong masters, the list of venerable speakers is long and it would take more than three days to fully experience the conference.
Six Seconds’ Joel Woodlief and Mariaelena Welch will also be present at our Six Seconds booth sharing the tools and wisdom of emotional intelligence from our organization. They will be inviting participants to explore their brain styles and engage in learning activities.
From the land down under to the Bay Area…
