“May the entire world benefit from the mighty task of freedom, peace, prosperity and happiness.”
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
As we move into the New Year and into our future, we want to continue to believe in the goodness of the world. We want to believe that the driving force for change is our wish to create more justice and balance in the world, to be able to live a life that reflects our deepest values.
And we further believe that we can all touch each other’s heart and soul and support and heal ourselves and the planet. The connection we share as a human family is so deep and needs to be to be discovered and understood.
As we evolve … what role will we allow rapidly growing technology and artificial intelligence to play in this vision?
Allow us to introduce Stephen Kennedy, one of our keynote speakers at the upcoming HEALING SUMMIT in Portugal. Stephen will be addressing this issue. He is an investor and entrepreneur, a lecturer at the Sloan School of Management in the visionary investing program and a fellow at the Connection Science Group at MIT, among many other positions and accomplishments. In his childhood, Stephen spent many days at the White House, watching his beloved uncle Jack performing his presidential tasks. That sparked the flame in Stephen’s heart to devote his life to doing good.
“The story of past courage can teach, they can offer hope, they can provide inspiration. But they cannot supply courage itself. For this, each human must look into her/his own soul.”
John F. Kennedy (Profiles in Courage)
Stephen firmly believes that “in the coming decade, technologies such as artificial intelligence, genetic engineering, regenerative medicine, and neuro-technology have the potential to change human life, and human health, as well as to optimize brain function more profoundly than at any other time in human history. But they will not solve our most difficult and important problem. That is the need for the evolution of individual and social consciousness. Technology, without drawing upon our deepest awareness, is essentially useless.”
At HEALING SUMMIT 2019, we will explore the stunning advancements in healing and hospitality, sustainability and human rights, science, medicine and commerce, while delving further into our mindfulness to create a profound awareness for ourselves and our communities.
Join us at this rich, powerful and important global conference, limited to only 150 individuals interested in learning, sharing, forging business and personal relationships, and navigating our exciting technology-rich horizons as we go deeper into our humanity.
Anne and Elisabeth
