Mindful cyborgs is a movement to help people place themselves--not their devices--on "airplane mode." The movement, which is supported by a podcast and local meetups, aims to create a dialog focusing on contemplative technology, critiquing the status quo, and creating mindful spaces, spaces where practitioners can use technology in safety and in kindness while they support their meditation practice.
Our podcast focuses on contemplative living in the age of quantification, augmentation, and acceleration. Simply put, we take a mindful look at alternative technological awareness.
Our meetups are two hours long and involve meditation, technology, and kindness. Our guiding question is “How can we be mindful in a such a hyper-connected world?” Each session begins with group meditation, followed by a device contemplation topic or a reading and discussion. Gadgets are welcome!
Mindful Cyborg workshops are between 3-5 hours. They include 10 skills based team exercises. Workshops have been given from Chicago to Paris.1
