Professor John Briggs, one of the original BEI fellows and editor of the 2015 spring issue of About Place, will be among some 40 participants at a gathering near Silicon Valley at Half Moon Bay, California, to discuss “Technologies of Transformation: Technology, Consciousness and the Future.” The gathering is sponsored by The Contemplative Alliance.

Launched by The Global Peace Initiative of Women (GPIW) in 2008, the Contemplative Alliance is an inter-spiritual movement grounded in contemplative practices and approaches with the goal of heightening awareness and generating actions to address the critical issues of our times. The Alliance seeks to accomplish this by creating an alliance of organizations and individuals from across religious, faith and worship traditions who believe that inner development is an essential element in the positive transformation of the global community.  By sharing this message, their vision is that individuals and organizations will act from a place of deep inner wisdom to advance the wellbeing of the global community.
