Event Details

The Challenge

Raising or working with children in our age today is no easy task. Whether we are a parent, teacher, educator, aunt/uncle, grandparent, or simply a concerned citizen, our times present both amazing opportunities and great challenges.

The Balance

For many of us, we understand the value for young people of modern technology - from cellphones, to computer games, to online social networks. At the same time, we also recognize the importance of helping them be in touch with their "inner technologies" of wisdom, awareness, and compassion that are essential for any quality life. We want to help them live truly connected, whether they are engaging with a device, talking to a friend, or sitting quietly by themselves.

In our technology-rich age, life for young people is speeding up as never before. While pushing away and renouncing all modern technology is seen as pointless and unneeded, likewise does a life where each family member spends the majority of each evening glued to their individual screens, and where kids cannot sit still and need constant external stimuli to keep them entertained.

The Need

There is great need to explore what wise engagement is as it relates to young people; and, possibly most importantly, to ask, "How do we adults embody the very qualities we want to pass along to the youth in our life?"

With over 75% of teens now owning cell phones, and sending or receiving in average 3,339 texts a month, the impact of technology on young people will only likely increase. There is no going back; the question is how to skillfully and mindfully move forward.

The Conference

Join us Saturday, September 17th at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California for a one-of-a-kind conference to explore this important subject, and learn from leaders in the field of youth, mindfulness, and wisdom.
