Tired of small talk
At Immersioneer, we believe it's time to take human dialogue somewhere deeper.
With the arrival of smartphones and social media, we were told that the world was becoming more connected. But as digital addictions grow while mental health declines, it's clear that something human has been lost in the shuffle.
On The I Project, we explore the roots of this disconnection and explore new ways of thinking, seeing, and being.
I think we are collectively going through this giant awakening because we are no longer outsourcing our consciousness. We're realizing...I am the one who is in charge of how I feel about the things going on in the world, and now I have to plug back in...to figure out how I can be a positive presence in the way that I live my life and deal with others.

And by a "deeper" dialogue we don't mean heavy, stuffy, or boring. We mean a conversation that cuts through the noise so we can talk about the real things that move our lives.
Social media might be good for sharing memes, but it's not great at fostering healthy human dialogue. At Open Session we put our smartphones away and embark on a collaborative conversation about the big challenges facing culture and civilization.
As our world grows more complex, I believe we are being challenged to find new ways of looking at ourselves and the world we share. More importantly, I believe we are being invited to see beyond polarization and to discover deeper perspectives that will help us meet the growing complexity of our time.
But to discover such perspectives, we cannot sit idly by. We cannot hide behind smartphones and social media and expect the answers to find us. As we're realizing, the internet might be great at disseminating information instantly, but this doesn't mean truth and wisdom are easier to find.
I founded Immersioneer because I believe that deepening public dialogue and expanding human consciousness holds the key to our collective evolution. While I don't pretend to have all the answers, I do believe that if we come together in the right spirit, we will find them together.
If you would like join the conversation, we'd be honored to have you.

Know Thy Self
There's a whole lot more to human identity than what you can capture in a selfie. At The Crash Course, we cruise past the surface stuff and dive into a series of thought experiments, meditative exercises, and Socratic dialogues that help us gain a deeper understanding of the ego and the mind.
