Wow! What an incredibly inspiring few days listening, learning and connecting with others at the Wisdom 2.0, a conference exploring the intersection of wisdom and technology, in San Francisco. I have spent much of today reflecting on the rich lessons from the last few days and can’t wait to share them with you via SF Yoga Mag very soon. In a nutshell, I enjoyed the conversations around embodiment, compassion and connection. I loved learning about embodied leadership through somatic practices from @strozzi_institute. I loved hearing from disrupters like Tarana Burke, founder of the #metoo movement, who brought us all to tears. I loved connecting with so many amazing new people and listening to their stories — hearing how different people ended up at Wisdom, what they were hoping to take away and what struck them about the weekend. Many people were there to connect with a cause that was so close to their hearts, including how to shift both our leadership and educational systems on a grand scale. The sense of community at this conference was just so warm and energizing, and I am ending the weekend feeling humbled, inspired and so super grateful. And the fact that I got to share this experience with one of my best friends makes my heart want to explode! Thank you, Wisdom 2.0 and SF Yoga Mag for amazing weekend!

“As I reflect back to the day I first visited San Francisco — it was just for a conference — little did I know that the calling would be so strong that I had to move here,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Tejas L. “I couldn’t stay away from this city for long. I had to come back.”
