13.07 Ingvar Villido’s workshop “Human 2.0: Practical Elements of a Paradigm Shift Based on the Application of Awareness” will take place. During the workshop Ingvar will explain the core principles of a paradigm based on awareness, introducing what awareness is and how its use can replace the commonly overvalued use of emotions and thinking. The approach outlined by Villido emphasizes the practical use of awareness during all daily activities instead of the dominance of automatic emotions and thoughts.
The Art of Conscious Change course taught by Ingvar Villido will take place as part of the post-conference program.
The international conference “The Wisdom of Conscious Communities” takes place annually in collaboration with Global Ecovillage Network (GEN) that connects over 10 000 sustainability-oriented communities from all over the world.
