What is the People’s Stage?
Every year, many Wisdom 2.0 participants ask how they can share their great work, insights, and presentations with our community. We are happy to announce the return of The People’s Stage to our 2018 annual conference.
The People’s Stage is a series of interactive breakout sessions submitted by registered conference attendees and selected by popular community vote. The People’s Stage is designed for more intimate, interactive sessions. Sessions are about 20 minutes long.

Title: Of Hobbits and Horsemen
Description: Of Hobbits and Horsemen
Each of us has two ‘children’ that tag along behind us; they follow us like Peter Pan’s shadow. One of these children is called Results, the other Relationship. And Relationship has many children of its own - the Four Hobbits, and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
The Horsemen are very destructive. They smash partnerships. They are mean children. So what do we do when they show up in a relationship? How do we notice, and acknowledge their presence? And at the same time, how do we attend to the homey qualities of the Hobbits that helps us support our important relationships?
As a Zen Master (Suzuki Roshi) once said: If something comes into your mind, let it come in and let it go out. It will not stay long.
