My SXSW Talk (& Hug)

TITLE: Mashup Spirituality & The Belief Buffet
DAY OF SESSION: Sunday, March 15
TIME OF SESSION: 3:30-4:30
SPEAKERS: John Halcyon Styn (

For those burned-out on organized religion, the web allows us to customize our belief systems and personalize faith. Is this Spiritual Evolution? Or the end of Sacred?

BONUS: Session will end with a HugNation Hug

Take a few minutes to re-calibrate your spirit and ‘Hug it out’ with Halcyon! HugNation is a brief moment of shared intention to combat the fear-based media onslaught. Using the web as a framework, people world-wide take a break from the bustle of the week and come together to remember that regardless of what you see on the news, “The world would rather hug you than hurt you.”

**I will also be on the opening “How to Rawk SXSW” panel **

    Hey, do you manually repost your word p ress entries to LJ or is there a plug-in going on for that?

    PS. Someday I wish I could borrow Andi….my back would probably delight her with the amount of pops she’d get.
