Is There Soul in Silicon Valley?

I went to the recent Wisdom 2.0 conference at the Marriott in in San Francisco. The conference focused on the meeting place of high tech and ancient wisdom. It was fully sold out with 2,000 attendees. The energy of the conference was absolutely electric, bristling with excitement and led by a new generation of younger people with a very different life experience and worldview having grown up with digital technology.

Here were the best and the brightest from Google, Facebook, (Apple was notably absent) along with many other major technology companies. Some of the most powerful leading edge corporations in the world with their huge international influence and financial clout came together to meet with leading spiritual teachers to explore how to adopt wisdom practices. What unlikely bedfellows.
