Welcome, Consciousness Hackers!
We're new here!Join us!
Consciousness Hacking is an exploration into the ways that technology can support psychological, emotional and spiritual well-being. This Utah meetup is inspired by a global community of Consciousness Hackers, building a future where technology is in service to the highest ideals of humanity. Consciousness Hacking is a hands-on approach to making and enjoying tools for self-exploration and positive interior growth. Science increasingly confirms the best aspects of old school contemplative practices: long story short, it turns out we can indeed radically shift our conscious experience for the better with a bit of attention and purpose. Is there a modern enlightenment that is in harmony with (and even improved by) the technology that seems to constantly externalize our attention and increase our sense of separation? Can we create new, or leverage existing, forms of technology that actually empower us to be more fluid, more masterful, more excited, more happy, more connected, and more badass beings? Shall we try? Meetings will focus on new and existing projects, building community, and receiving support for new ideas and concepts. Have an idea for a cool EEG or meditation app? How about a way to help induce lucid dreams? Maybe you’re interested in creating software for starting new habits. This is a place to explore with a supportive group focused on bringing these ideas into reality. The ultimate purpose of this group is to generate a series of new technologies for whole-being enhancement to improve the way we feel, live, and experience life.
• Consciousness Hacking (CH) explores technology as a catalyst for individual and collective transformation.
• Transformation can generally be defined as a positive or healthy shift in subjective experience.
• CH recognizes the importance of diverse perspectives and continued debate, and does not advocate any particular religious, spiritual or scientific belief system or theory of consciousness.
• In the context of CH, consciousness can be thought of as subjective experience.
• CH meetups should focus on technology. Generally speaking, if it doesn’t run on electricity it’s not the kind of tech we are interested in discussing here.
• Traditional or non-technological means of fostering awareness and connection within meetups, such as group meditation or sharing, are highly encouraged.
• CH welcomes technologies inspired by, merged with, or augmenting any religious, spiritual, or scientific traditions.
• CH does not position itself in opposition to any scientific, technological, religious, or theoretical perspective.
• Rather we positively support the development, dissemination, and use of transformative technologies.
• We are what we build, we build what we are. In that spirit, the makers of Transformative Technologies should always be focused on their own continual evolution.
