Next Trend in Business for Next Generation Leaders Taps Age-Old Practice
Date:2/15/2013

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 15, 2013

Soren Gordhamer is the creator of the Wisdom 2.0 Conference, a gathering of Silicon Valley elite (including the founders of Facebook, Twitter, eBay, and Paypal) and teachers from various traditions (including Jack Kornfield, Jon Kabat-Zinn and others) focused on how to live with greater presence, meaning, and mindfulness in the technology age. His book, WISDOM 2.0: The New Movement Toward Purposeful Engagement in Business and in Life (HarperOne; February 2013; Trade Paperback) is designed to help anyone navigate the digital demands of quantity, speed, and efficiency and achieve more balanced, mindful, and personally connected interactions.

Upon experiencing an epiphany in his own life where he’d sacrificed his physical and mental wellbeing to a desire to be constantly connected online, and recognizing that the online tools created to make life better and easier had become “overbearing masters” directing much of his life, Soren Gordhamer forged another path, one that brought awareness and consciousness to what had been frenzied and involuntary. The results of this radical shift included improvements in his health, sleep, productivity, relationships, and something that had become unheard of in the age of hyper-connectivity: free time.    

WISDOM 2.0 helps the reader learn to make conscious choices about how to use the tools of technology without becoming enslaved by them, and how to live in our constantly connected world in a way that is “creative, aware, and where you are in the drivers’ seat”.    The book incorporates Godhamer’s wisdom 2.0 philosophy and combines that with daily practices focusing on such matters as:

  •     The Art of Attention
  •     Life Alignment
  •     Resisting the Trap of the Emergency
  •     Trust Not Knowing

Insightful and greatly needed in these ever-connected times, WISDOM 2.0 will guide our interactions toward greater meaning, productivity, and wellbeing.
