The Buddhist Geeks Conference 2012
August 9–11, 2012
One FREE video event

Not Your Normal Buddhist Conference
Discover the emerging new faces of Buddhism at the Buddhist Geeks Conference 2012 via live video streaming.

It’s an opportunity to explore the leading-edge frontiers of Buddhism, technology, and global culture. This year’s gathering brings together luminaries in the fields of Buddhism, science, philosophy, education, business, politics, and more. Participants will explore how the dharma is co-evolving with modern insights and trends to change our lives—personally and globally—in extraordinary and unexpected ways.

As Buddhist Geeks co-founder Vincent Horn describes it: “Some Buddhist events can be boring and predictable and tend to draw on the same group of speakers again and again. When we launched the conference last year, we wanted to create one with a completely fresh and innovative format, in which we could explore new topics in new ways. Feedback was very enthusiastic. This year’s conference in Boulder, Colorado, will build on what people liked the best from last year, while adding exciting new elements. We hope you’ll be joining us!”

Your live video streaming pass, available here exclusively through Sounds True, gives you up-close coverage of all featured events. Can’t make a live session? Don't worry! Recordings from live sessions will be available by 7 pm Eastern Time (GMT -4), two business days after the conference concludes.
