"Change Makers" is a monthly interview style program featuring dynamic and motivational individuals that are doing great work and bringing positive and real change to the world. This month’s program features Soren Gordhamer, whose work these days explores the application of Wisdom in modern life - how to live a modern, engaged, and connected life with awareness, balance, and effectiveness.
Soren Gordhamer works with individuals and groups on living with greater mindfulness and purpose in our technology-rich age. He is founder and host of the Wisdom 2.0 Conference, and the author of Wisdom 2.0: Ancient Secrets for the Creative and Constantly Connected (HarperOne, 2009), one of the first books to explore living with mindfulness and wisdom within the context of our modern technology age.
Soren writes and speaks on the merging of wisdom in modern life. The question before us is not if the external technologies of our age, from cell phones to computers, will continue to advance ... the more pertinent question is "Will the inner technologies of mindfulness and wisdom advance along with them?
While our technology age offers many benefits, for many people life has become increasingly chaotic, hurried, and stressful ... overwhelmed with a continual stream of emails, text messages, and cell phone calls, awareness of the body goes "off-line" and the present moment is lost. We live "disconnectedly connected," where we are connected to technology, but largely disconnected from that place of balance and well-being that resides in each one of us.
The thread between all the inspirational individuals interviewed on this show is their dedication to following their dreams and the willingness to share their stories of failure and triumph with you. We hope you are inspired to follow your dreams and in doing so make a positive change in your life and community.
