The Dalai Lama, Dave Matthews, 3 million Citizens… and You

In collaboration with our good friends at Koanetic and Karlin Sloan, Intridea launches Committed Conversations (CC), a social networking site based on our SocialSpring platform. Committed Conversations is focused on actualizing individual and group commitments to personal, organizational and social transformation.

The community was launched today in support of the largest event in the history of the state of Washington: Seeds of Compassion. Seeds is an unprecedented gathering to engage the hearts and minds of the community by highlighting the vision, science, and programs of early social, emotional, and cognitive learning.

Anchored by the deep wisdom of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, this community-focused event will celebrate and explore the relationships, programs, and tools that nurture and empower children, families, and communities to be compassionate members of society.

Each of the five days will provide the over 100,000 parents, educators, and business and community leaders in attendance an opportunity to better understand the real benefits of compassion, and concrete steps on how to bring compassion into their lives. In addition to His Holiness, participants include: Dave Matthews, Daniel Goleman, Daniel Seigel, Richard Davidson, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, John Gottman, Rajendra Sisoda, and many, many other leaders in the fields of science, business and government.

Over 3 million individuals in 92 countries will be viewing the event live (or on-demand) on the webcast.

Committed Conversations is committed to helping create a world in which every individual has Voice with which to declare their Commitments and Communities through which to explore and manifest those Commitments. We encourage you to join the network and make your commitments.
