Lunchtime Activity - Guided Mindfulness Meditation

Whether you’re new to mindfulness and meditation, a lifelong practitioner, or somewhere in between, join us for an informal guided meditation session and discussion. We’ll take some time to meditate and chill. We’ll also engage in a discussion about how mindfulness can be a powerful tool to combat the stressors of living in a hyperconnected world and find the right balance between our work and personal lives.

This community activity will be facilitated by Meico Marquette Whitlock, a speaker and trainer on mindfulness and technology and the founder of Mindful Techie.

General Session and Ignites
How can you use tech for good? Join us to start your day inspired with a welcome from EveryAction.
 
This morning, we will hear from six different speakers sharing their stories in the Ignite format. Ignites are fun, fast-paced, thought-provoking presentations strictly limited to five minutes and 20 slides, which advance automatically every 15 seconds.
 
The Ignite theme for 20NTC asks, “How have you used technology or the internet to make a change in your organization, the community, or the world?”
 
The NTC is a place where we talk about technology and how to use it in so many ways. These six Ignite presentations are talks about using technology for real change, inspiring others to think differently, plan boldly, and make an impact.

Join us for a lunch time stroll!

Join NTEN board member Beth Kanter for a 30-minute lunchtime stroll to take mini-break from the conference, get some fresh air, and network with other participants.
