"Mindfulness, the aware, balanced acceptance of present experience, is at the heart of what the Buddha taught.”

Soren Gordhamer

Soren Gordhamer is a graduate of the first Community Dharma Leaders Program at Spirit Rock and he formerly taught with the Spirit Rock teen program. Currently, he works with individuals and groups on living with greater presence and purpose in our technology-rich age. He is founder and host of the Wisdom 2.0 Conference, the annual event that brings together staff from technology companies such as Twitter, Facebook and Google with those from wisdom traditions to explore mindful living in the modern age. He is the author of Wisdom 2.0: Ancient Secrets for the Creative and Constantly Connected, a practical manual focused on conscious living in an increasingly connected world. Soren has led mindfulness programs in a wide range of settings, including to youth in New York City juvenile halls, trauma workers in Rwanda, teachers in Nigeria, and US technology companies. He also works closely with Stephen and Ondrea Levine, most recently launching a new website with them, LevineTalks, to share their teachings. He co-founded the New York City-based non-profit, The Lineage Project, which offers awareness-based practices to at-risk and incarcerated teens. His current focus in on fostering the conversation of what a mindful and purposeful relationship to technology is, and how our culture can not only advance external technologies, from cell phones to social networks, but at the same time develop the "inner technologies" of awareness, wisdom, and compassion that are essential for any society to flourish.
