TEDxSanDiego

Open your mind to ideas worth spreading



Immerge your thoughts and open your mind to “ideas worth spreading” at the TedxSanDiego 2012 event on December 1st. Tickets are sold you but you can catch the live stream starting at 9 AM on the TEDxSanDiego site.

The theme for this year’s event is Cause & Affect.

“The intent is to cause participants to affect the world in some new and meaningful way, however large or small,” according to the event’s co-founder Jack Abbott.

Thupten Jinpa, the Dalai Lama's translator at TEDxSanDiegoOver 20 speakers and performers will take the stage for the daylong event at Irwin M. Jacobs Hall on Qualcomm’s campus. Speakers include Thupten Jinpa, PH.D. (pictured right),  who has been the principal English translator to H.H. the Dalai Lama for over two decades, and Dr. Edith Eva Eger, Ph.D., a survivor of the Holocaust.

“This is an experience that will rivet you from the opening moment and stay with you long after. It’s a journey that stretches the bounds of possibilities through stunning visuals, masterfully crafted words and mind-blowing music. You will walk away full of joy, energy and inspiration to find your cause and to affect change in yourself, your community and maybe even the world,” said Abbott.
