Yurik’s art at 2014 Wisdom 2.0 Conference

Look for Yurik’s art at the 2014 Wisdom 2.0 conference in the hall as you approach the main area.

The conference specifically wanted art that addresses the blending of tech and spirituality in our modern lives.  Yurik was an obvious choice.

Info on the conference:

The annual Wisdom 2.0 Summit addresses the great challenge of our age: how can we live connected to one another through technology in ways that are beneficial to our own well-being, effective in our work, and useful to the world?

This year’s outstanding lineup includes technology leaders and wisdom teachers including: Eckhart Tolle, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Byron Katie, Sharon Salzburg, Roshi Joan Halifax, Meng Tan (Google’s “Jolly Good Fellow”), singer and recording artist Alanis Morissette and executives from Google, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

We try not to be the usual sit-and-listen conference — this is a think tank-style interactive gathering with hosted conversations, yoga rooms, enchanting decor, community-led break outs and more.

Join us for:

– Hosted Community-Led Conversations (engage directly with other participants on topics that matter to you!)

– Yoga and Meditation Rooms (stretch, move, and refresh yourself; or take an opportunity for quiet contemplation.)

– Participant-Led Break Outs (stay tuned for ways to submit your talk or program to be presented on our People’s Stage!)

– Interactive Parties (dance, consciously connect, and have fun together!)

– Optional Monday Intensives (spend all day Monday after the conference diving even more deeply into one important topic.)

– And many more ways to interact with other participants and make meaningful, lasting connections…

Wisdom 2.0 strives to bring this conversation to the world in an accessible, innovative, and inclusive way.
