This week’s conversation is with Soren Gordhamer, the founder and host of Wisdom 2.0.

He’s a friend, incredibly purposeful with his life efforts, and what he’s created is amazing.

Wisdom 2.0 brings together leaders in technology, including the founders of Facebook, Twitter, and Paypal, along with wisdom teachers, entrepreneurs, activists and others to explore how we live consciously and wisely in a digital-rich age.

Prior to Wisdom 2.0, Soren taught mindfulness programs to a variety of groups around the world, including youth in New York City’s juvenile halls, trauma workers in Rwanda, teachers in Nigeria, and employees at Google.

He spent a year walking through parts of the United States, India, Pakistan, and Japan as a part of the Global Walk for a Livable World and he later founded The Lineage Project, a New York City-based nonprofit that offers awareness-based practices to at-risk and incarcerated teens.

Soren cares about helping individuals and groups live with greater mindfulness and purpose, especially in our technology rich age.

“Technology on its own will make us more connected, but I don’t know if it’s going make us more happy. We need to not only look at external technologies, but also look at the internal technologies of the mind, body and heart and we really have to marry the two.”
