Finding Balance

by

I have so many blogs rattling in my head and a dozen started in my blogging file. There are so many things to share. But right at this moment, the right one to share is Beth Kanter’s latest post from the Wisdom 2.0 Conference where she said she spent a day off-line to give full attention to program and people. She desribed the conference as “a one-of-a-kind event in Silicon Valley that brings together an unusual mix of technology leaders, Zen teachers, neuroscientists, and academics, to explore how we can live with deeper meaning and wisdom in our technology-rich age.”

Among the questions posed in her report that really resonated are: “What is important for creating a wisdom-based culture?” What ideas, books, or concepts are helping you balance in a hyper-connected world?  How do you practice wisdom to keep your online/offline work and life balanced?

I recently started a yoga class and in the class this morning, the teacher asked us in the beginning to be “present” and that became my mantra throughout the 70 minutes. I think this class – and the study of yoga concepts – is my response to Beth’s second two questions. The first, I am still pondering. What are your responses?
