Buddhist Geeks Conference (FREE video)

The Buddhist Geeks Conference 2012
August 9–11, 2012
FREE video event
Discover the emerging faces of Buddhism at the Buddhist Geeks Conference 2012 via Sounds True live video streaming.

Not Your Normal Buddhist Conference
This is an opportunity to explore the frontiers of Buddhism, technology, and global culture. This year’s gathering brings together luminaries in the fields of Buddhism, science, philosophy, education, business, politics, and more. Participants will explore how the Dharma is co-evolving with modern insights and trends to change lives -- personally and globally -- in extraordinarily unexpected ways.
Buddhist Geeks co-founder Vincent Horn describes the conference this way:
“Some Buddhist events can be boring and predictable and tend to draw on the same group of speakers again and again. When we launched the conference last year, we wanted to create one with a completely fresh and innovative format [to] explore new topics in new ways. Feedback was very enthusiastic. This year’s conference in Boulder, Colorado, will build on what people liked the best from last year, while adding exciting new elements.”
Live video streaming is available exclusively through Sounds True. A pass gives those interested up-close coverage of all featured events.
