Review: The Conscious Network Symposium last night was a spectacular success with 750+ people attending! The campus advisors told the students a month ago that they should book a smaller venue as there was no way we’d fill the Wheeler Auditorium. We did it anyway and we ran out of space.
A highlight for me was the warm and wise Dr David Presti, a Neuro-science professor at UC Berkeley. But really, all of the presenters were wonderful, including several of the students themselves. My part was short – a 10 minute kiirtan and guided meditation – but it seemed to go down very well. But it was the atmosphere that made it extraordinary. There was such a feeling of enthusiasm, hope and commitment to create a better world, starting with, but not stopping with, ourselves. What started as an ambitious idea amongst five students plus my friend Anadi and I last September, miraculously became a reality.
The whole thing was organized by the students, who worked tirelessly and gathered a veritable army of committed supporters through the Conscious Living Collective campus club. I’m sure this will lead to bigger and better things. Exhilarating! The whole event was professionally filmed by Anadi and crew – watch this space for photos and video.
