All the travel and lodging information you need for Wisdom 2.0 2017

Venue - The Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco, California

This year we will be at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater and the adjacent IHangar, a 120,000-square-foot space located in the historic Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco's Marina District.

Every year we choose a new art & design theme for Wisdom 2.0 in an effort to stimulate conference goer's eyes as well as their minds. This year, we're particularly excited to announce "Sacred Geometry" as our thematic inspiration. We will transform the blank canvas of the iHangar through an interplay of light, color, and large scale art crafted by notable Bay Area resident artists, that illuminate the beauty and wisdom of ancient shapes and symbols present in nature and mathematics.

In this space, we will have all kinds of creative spaces and lounges, including an Embodiment Lounge, Conversation Lounge, Integration Lounge, along with yoga, meditation, coaching sessions, and more.

Watch this video to learn about the interactive elements and set up for Wisdom 2.0. A truly unique event!

There is no onsite parking at the Palace of Fine Arts conference venue. We highly recommend that you take a taxi, Uber or Lyft to the event.
