Earlier this year we were lucky enough to attend the Wisdom2.0 event in San Francisco along with a lot of people interested in the intersection between technology and Mindfulness. As we are always interested in where people centric innovation fits into this cultural moment we wanted to share some of the videos from the summit from the presentations which we found most inspiring or challenging. 

The first video we want to share came from a debate titled: Mindfulness and Medicine: The Future of Healthcare.

The discussion includes Mark Bertolini, the inspirational CEO of Aetna, Jon Kabat-Zinn famous in mindfulness circles and creator of the Stress Reduction Clinic and Tim Ryan the highly engaging U.S. Representative for Ohio’s 13th congressional district. They discussed in detail their experiences with health care and asked a lot of provocative questions about how as individuals. companies and society as a whole, we will need to deal with mental health and wellness in increasingly technological context. Amongst the many insights we took here are some selected quotes from parts of the discussion which we found most revealing…

“We don’t have a health care system, we have a disease care system.”

“Why don’t we create a mindful medical treatment that goes into the bones, genome, soul?”

“Why do we believe we are in a community by using the devices inside of our pockets?”

How do you see the future relationship to wellness and health care in your country? Are you satisfied with the relationship between yourself and your physician? Do you feel medicine is created with patients in mind? How will we as a society deal with such issues going forwards? We’d love to hear from you.
