Genesis; the first light at dawn illuminating the path. The creative spark is humanity’s gift. It is our original genius to dream and make real our dreams. We hope to carry that spark with courage, navigating synchronicity in wisdom. On January 9th at La Casona, the 6th TEDxSanMigueldeAllende: “GENESIS” will devote a full day to bear witness to transformative ideas manifesting locally and abroad. In uncertain times, we pause to consider the realities of intrinsic change, that everything emerges through evolution and synthesis with elements that have existed before. We look forward to presenting you a diverse array of multi-disciplined speakers in 2016.
