Digital Innovations for Healing Initiative

Digital Innovations for Healing initiative

The Digital Innovations for Healing Initiative is a global group of thought leaders dedicated to understanding the role of mindfulness, meditation and nature in leadership. The cultural expectation is that we stay technologically interconnected at all times, but our digital dependency makes us less connected to each other, to nature and ultimately to ourselves. As we shape the technological landscape of the future, it’s critical we realize that creativity and innovation come from focused, healthy minds.
