Online Schedule for TEDx San Francisco IV: The Edge of What We Know

Online Schedule for TEDx San Francisco IV: The Edge of What We Know

On November 16th,  the San Francisco TED community will explore the Edge of What We Know in many dimensions- the physical and the conceptual, the artistic and the unconscious.    Our hope is that people leave inspired and curious, asking the questions: What do I know?  How do I know this?  What don’t I know?  And maybe even leave more comfortable in saying I don’t know…. with all the humility that brings, and inquiry it invites.

From deepest space to the forest floor, from governance to money, from our internal “edges” to communal outreach, join these phenomenal speakers for an inspiring afternoon and evening.

Join us online at, starting at 4 pm Pacific Time, for the free web simulcast:

Effort, or evanesce?

We can do the same actions with completely different energies: whistle while we wash the car or grit our teeth the whole time. Our no can be soft or rigid- both are “no”, but they leave different imprints inside of us. As we become more aware of the always-present humming center of our being, the indwelling perfection, the big battery of life, pulsing with light….we

Being Naked, At Long Last Free

When I was a little thing my parents would release us naked onto the beach like most European children and we would clamber over rocks and play in the shore waters for hours. There was no self-consciousness about it at all. After being sexualized and shamed about my body in adolescence and adulthood, I stopped being naked in public. It seemed then a no-win situation:

Tropical Flowers at New Earth Mandala


There’s no exemption from loss or heartache if you have a human body, unless you steel yourself to such a degree as to not feel—or choose to live like an astronaut out in spiritual space, disconnected from the earth of you. The Buddhists say the First Noble Truth is that “Life is suffering.” I think that’s more of a partial truth, with a distinct negativity

Christine at Verishop (4/20)

As part of her work with Rosebud Woman, Christine was interviewed for the Verishop blog. ” Shame around sexuality impacts women’s physical health.” “When Mason began practicing yoga in her mid-30s, she was introduced to a different process that incorporated dance, fluidity and feminine yin energy, and one that called for touching every part of your body using oils. “It really worked in creating a
