Reflecting on this Yr’s Knowledge 2.0 • We Weblog The World

For issues to soar and I imply persistently soar yr after yr, you want a group who believes in what you initially got down to do and hopefully proceed to do. I‘ve been going to Knowledge 2.0 for almost a decade and what initially introduced me there was bringing consciousness to the expertise trade and different sectors. Their dedication is to deal with the overlap between dwelling related to 1 one other by means of expertise and consciousness. In different phrases, doing so in methods which might be helpful to our personal well-being, efficient in our work, and helpful to the world.

Final yr, that they had OPENAI CEO, Sam Altman on stage, but additionally folks like Jack Kornfeld, Yung Pueblo, trauma knowledgeable Gabor Maté, Byron Katie, Dr. Lyla June Johnston, Rhonda Magee, Alex Senegal, Mohammed Mohammed, Chip Conley, MAPS founder Rick Doblin and extra.

This Yr’s Knowledge 2.0

This yr, Deepak Chopra, meditation grasp Jon Kabat-Zinn, #MeToo motion founder Tarana Burke, V (formally Eve Ensler), Roshi Joan Halifax, and founding father of inside household methods (IFS) Dr.Richard Schwartz have been among the many audio system on the major stage. V. Pappas additionally addressed social media and its affect on folks, particularly the youth. She shared classes realized from Tik Tok as the previous COO and the way we are able to handle it for ourselves and our youngsters.

Alanis Morrissette additionally joined us for a dialog in a fireplace chat type format with Knowledge 2.0 host Soren Gordhamer. As a lot as I had hoped for a tune or two in addition to her insights, music wasn’t on the desk at this yr’s occasion. She shared her knowledge and in addition her personal greatest practices for private progress and therapeutic, which included methods to keep grounded as a singer, but additionally as a mom. I cherished her genuine voice.

She shared that as an empath, navigating the panorama could be difficult, however realizing it’s a nice begin to know what to do to take care of your self alongside the method, reasonably than shove the hiccups below the carpet as so many do. It’s arduous to be a changemaker and a pacesetter however making the dedication to point out up is an enormous half of it and her exhibiting up on a really completely different stage like Knowledge 2.0 demonstrated that to all of us.

I’m not new to Deepak Chopra‘s work or voice. Not solely have I heard him converse a couple dozen occasions over time at stay occasions, however I‘ve learn over half of his books. Generally his talks have been a bit heady or dense for me; nonetheless, readability hit me in all instructions when he graced the stage along with his presence this yr. The main focus? Similarities and overlapping paradigms between science and spirituality, considered one of my favourite matters.

With out getting too technical or taking place the quantum physics rabbit gap, he made some attention-grabbing parallel observations between Quantum Mechanics and what he known as Quantum Consciousness in his discuss. Essentially the most attention-grabbing one he raised was The Superposition Precept, which means that the “system could be in a state that may be a mixture of two or extra different states.” On the aspect of Quantum Consciousness, he says that “all psychological occasions exist in superposition and entanglement with sensations, photographs, emotions and ideas. Potential psychological occasions exist in a number of states till actualized as expertise.”

He additionally defined how all sides begins with elementary assumptions. For instance, science begins with matter is the “ontological primitive of existence, the place as consciousness is the place to begin” for individuals who flip to spirituality for understanding our existence.

“All psychological occasions exist in superposition and entanglement with sensations, photographs, emotions and ideas. Potential psychological occasions exist in a number of states till actualized as expertise.” —Deepak Chopra (April 2024)

For many who share the materialist view, then matter produces thoughts, however from the world of spirituality, then thoughts and matter (mind, physique and world) are literally “complementary actions of consciousness.” He asserts that “consciousness modifies itself as cognition and notion.” Although I grew up respecting science over spirituality, a minimum of in terms of understanding humanity’s very existence, his references to Advaita Vedanta/Shaivism made far more sense to me, intuitively that’s.

Science seems for constant proof—repeated proof—over and over. It solely takes into consideration expertise in that repeated context, though for these of us who’ve had repeated experiences that we are able to’t clarify—and nor can science clarify—it feels, tastes and sounds extra true than what knowledge typically factors to. Finally this leads us to one thing that masters throughout traditions typically come to on the finish of the day, and that Deepak introduced up on considered one of his slides: “The theater of spacetime and causality is an phantasm/simulation in non-local consciousness (Maya).” I’d argue that this perceived phantasm is what retains separateness in play and so has Ram Das and lots of different non secular masters.

It appeared like an important overview given how various the Knowledge 2.0 attendees have been, some coming in from different continents in addition to different elements of the U.S. We have to proceed this dialogue, as mind-bending it as it might be for some. There’s far an excessive amount of new analysis pointing us towards the gorgeous interconnected internet of life (as power) that all of us share, one thing a lot of our indigenous ancestors have recognized for millennia and past.

Though Gabor didn’t converse this yr, the trauma dialogue continued. Iya Affo, who we interviewed for our video collection on Trauma (not but stay) was on-stage and continued the dialogue at a Q&A later within the day which I attended. She reminds us that if we don’t perceive how trauma impacts the physiology within the mind, we are able to’t be taught extra empowering methods to control the mind so we are able to change a few of these damaging behaviors.

She additionally spoke of how some cultures discover discuss remedy taboo. So, reasonably than specializing in needing to do one thing we consider as taboo, we are able to look to more practical methods to control the mind. With consciousness, comes energy. In different phrases, the extra we apply completely different habits, the extra that habits turns into a brand new neuro-pathway.

“The extra I can regulate my mind, the extra I’ve the capability to make decisions.”—Iya Affo

Mingtong Gu additionally graced us along with his presence. He was educated on the largest qigong hospital in China and was named Qigong Grasp of the Yr by the thirteenth World Congress for Qigong and Conventional Chinese language Medication. I initially realized about his work on the SAND Convention (which sadly stopped working bodily occasions), though he has spoken and led workshops at Knowledge 2.0 earlier than. I wrote a chunk about an occasion he led at Spirit Rock again in 2018 and to today, stay a fan. He leads on and stay programs and occasions from his Chi Middle in Santa Fe. Qigong is a good re-balancing and therapeutic modality.

Talking of therapeutic modalities, let’s now flip to Inside Household Programs (IFS). Many I spoke to at the convention have been aware of (and followers of) the IFS work, so the room was packed when Dr. David Schwartz arrived on stage. Schwartz led a IFS course of with Soren on stage, which not solely took us by means of the steps however confirmed the energy of that vulnerability not simply with others, however most significantly with oneself.

One half of him is the “striver,” which might get within the method once we’re doing private progress and non secular work and but, don’t all of us have slightly striver in us, particularly if we’re main an group, convention or firm? Recognizing it permits us to make amends with that half of us, maintain it in a sacred place after which steadiness the power so it’s helpful reasonably than detrimental or overpowering.
