I’m helping to organize and am also participating in the first ever Buddhist Geeks event, Buddhist Geeks | The Conference. Here is a short description of the event:
Taking place July 29th – 31st, 2011 in Los Angeles, Buddhist Geeks | The Conference brings together some of the most exciting teachers, leaders and thinkers from the U.S. and beyond. Come join Buddhist Geeks as they continue their ongoing mission to discover the emerging face of Buddhism, which started with the Buddhist Geeks podcast—now downloaded over 100,000 times each month—and will now extend to this exciting live event. Scheduled keynote speakers include author of Rebel Buddha Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, innovative mindfulness teacher Shinzen Young, and leading Silicon valley game designer Jane McGonigal, along with a host of other speakers. With a vibrant program of presentations, workshops, performance and participant-led elements and its inclusive non-denominational attitude, Buddhist Geeks | The Conference promises to be one of the most innovative, energetic and relevant events in the Buddhist world.
