This weekend I attended the annual Conscious Life Expo. Every February I attend and cover it editorially and every year it holds a different tone, as if the harmonics in frequency change.
The good news is that this year anyone could have benefitted from the insights and wisdom of spiritual leaders from around the world who assist in the understanding of our world today, without leaving the comforts of home. Yes, livestreaming was introduced.
On a personal level, I had a chance to meet Caroline Myss, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caroline_Myss five-time New York Times bestselling author and internationally renowned speaker in the fields of human consciousness, spirituality and mysticism, health, and energy medicine. And I met by accident, (we bumped into each other) renowned astrologer of Astrology Zone, Susan Miller, https://www.astrologyzone.com/about/ who I always thought of as a power-house and surprised me because she actually is petite.
George Noory (local radio personality of Coast to Coast) who is very entertaining presented a group of panelists, with a round of questions about current events and life issues. I found the questions parallel to “Wait, Wait… don’t tell me,” minus the humor. Although there were some good answers, I did not care for the format of the presentation. Last year it was far more interesting with dialogue. Now everyone was required to speak in sound bites, with either 1 or 2 minutes to answer a question. I dislike sound bites. They neglect the context of critical thinking, do not include reflection, reduce a ‘thought’ to merely the fast and shallow, and focus on the erroneous and superficial.
What may happen with expos of this magnitude is since the media is constantly changing the formula for putting on an event of this caliber also has to change yearly. But if the formula works, why, change it, I ask? But then again, I’m a girl who gets a high from listening to George Harrison’s My Sweet Lord and whose varied tastes lean toward yesteryear.
