The Future of Mindfulness brings together leaders from across the globe committed to mindfulness and wisdom to engage, connect, and envision the future together.
While the world is going through unprecedented technological advances that show no signs of slowing down, from robots to VR headsets, there is another revolution taking place: It is an inner one.
We will gather in Hawaii for three full days to explore how mindfulness is currently taking root in schools, businesses, politics & more ... and the path ahead for this revolution.
What is the current state of this work?
What are the challenges going forward?
What is most calling each of us to be involved and how we do partner together?
To begin to understand, map, and support this global inner movement, we are gathering people who are committed to sharing, learning, and fostering the future of mindfulness.
There is no way any of us can do this alone, and learning from those in diverse areas of society, from education to business, is essential. As such, our second annual Intersect event will focus on the emerging global wisdom movement and the role each of us can play.

Wisdom 2.0: The Intersect will be held on the Kohala Coast at the beautiful Fairmont Orchid hotel on the Big Island. An ideal location to enjoy natural surroundings while diving more deeply into conversations about our greater purposes in the world, and the intersects that exist in all of our efforts.
Most of the earth's climate zones are represented on the Big Island, from arid coastal and desert areas, to lush old-growth rainforests and alpine mountain slopes, presenting a wondrous diversity of landscape and experience.
The Big Island of Hawaii has long been known as the healing island. According to Hawaiian legends, Hawaii's Big Island is the home of Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of fire. The spirit of Pele has a way of cutting through blockages and bringing to light innermost yearnings.
