God, I love the world wide web!!
With it, I have been able to become an explorer, a researcher, a business owner and to make friends with people I may never actually lay eyes on! When you think about it, it’s pretty bloody amazing what the web has allowed us to do!
During one of my explorations recently, I came across an amazing new educational platform called Mindvalley University.
Mindvalley Uni has both an online cirriculum as well as live events and its all about transforming “learning from an institutionalised, linear means to an end, to a complete and conscious lifelong adventure that has no end”
Making learning FUN, well I like the sound of that!
By the time I left high school, I had very much lost my passion for learning. Luckily, I was still a curious cat so as I moved through my 20’s I slowly developed a love of learning again.
I know that I am not unique in that experience.
Unfortunately, we have a school system that kills a lot of creativity and can turn learning into a laborious and boring pursuit. Particularly if you don’t learn how that school teaches. This is a great tragedy in my opinion.
But back to Mindvalley….
Mindvalley holds and bi-annual event called A-Fest and it sounds super cool!
As their website explains, “These events gather an extraordinary community of change-makers and visionaries who are driven by epic ideas to impact the world – entrepreneurs, experts, artists, leaders, innovators, visionaries and more. At A-Fest you will receive powerful training, profound mind shifts, bio-hacking techniques, deep connections, incredible adventures and unique opportunities to multiply your impact and give back to humanity, so that you can play an even bigger game and significantly expand your ability to accomplish bold things”
Reading that gets me excited! I have just added it to my goal list of events I need to attend.
The reason I share this is because I recently saw a video of Tom Chi speaking at A-Fest in Mexico in 2016. Tom is the inventor and co founder of Google X an he has been an astrophysical researcher right through to a Fortune 500 consultant.
This man is smart! And he is going to change the world.
Tom spoke on how we are all connected. Not in a mythical or religious way but in a hardcore scientific way. There is data that shows the interconnectedness of us all and how NO ONE is indispensable.
What a beautiful and powerful thought!
This video was amazing and instead of trying to explain it, I have shared the video so you can check it out. Now, make a cuppa, it’s not a quick one but its oh, so worth a watch.
