Contemplative Practices in a Technological Society - April 11-13, 2013 -
Blacksburg, Virginia

Along with the marvels of the 21st century come hurry, distraction, and
distress and a compelling question:

How can we reconnect with our own humanity in the midst of a rapidly
evolving technological society?

To discuss this question, Virginia Tech is organizing the conference,
<http://www.cpe.vt.edu/cpts/index.html> Contemplative Practices for a
Technological Society, on April 11-13, 2013 in Blacksburg, Virginia.

We invite students, the academic community, professionals, and
contemplatives from Education, Arts, Health, Business, Science, Technology,
and other areas to engage in a conversation about the future of
contemplative mind body practices in our emerging technological society.
Applying the facilitation skills of The Center of Appreciative Practice at
the University of Virginia, this conference will actively include all
participants in an extended dialog designed to tap the participants'
collective wisdom for shaping our future.

This conference is the first of a series of regional conferences designed to
lay the foundation for growing supportive networks of contemplative practice
in and between education, research, business, and community programs through
synergistic interactions.
