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: The Wisdom of Stress
Description: When we trust the wisdom of stress, we can transform internal and external conflicts without any spiritual posturing. We can stop fighting our natural stress experiences and begin to relate with them.
Learning to be perceptive and agile with our stress is learning to be stress intelligent. Rather than asking people to try to get past stress, we’ll be inviting people to get closer to stress and in so doing get closer to our deeply evolved needs that make us truly human.
Taking the perspective in the Zen saying that the obstacle is the path and mixing in the insights that evolutionary biology and psychology have on our stress response we can find new ways to help us, the people of the technological revolution, handle the rising tide of stress.
I invite you to join me in a brief yet powerful encounter by voting for The Wisdom of Stress!
