Hey Friends! I have some news that I wanted to share with you, and some opportunities for us to cross paths in person.

First, I'd like to invite you to the next Purposeful digital well-being event on June 5th at The Assemblage. This has been specially designed in collaboration with HeartRise Movement founder Jessie May Wolfe. Details here

Heart & Purpose in the Age of Distraction

Wednesday June 5, 6:30pm

The Assemblage Nomad,

114 E 25th Street, New York, NY 10010

In the age of distraction, we are so busy engaging through our digital devices that we’ve lost the nourishing art of real-world connection to ourselves and each other. We'll share insights and techniques that enable you to tap into the power of your heart and purpose so that you can truly thrive in the age of distraction.

Second, check out my appearance in the Harvard Business Review podcast FOMO Sapiens. I had the great pleasure of speaking with Patrick McGinnis (who coined the term "FOMO" – the Fear of Missing Out) about digital well-being and the attention economy. Listen on hbr.org

On Tuesday May 28, I’m co-hosting a hands-on workshop for creating impact at the Center for Humane Technology’s NYC meetup. Bring your passion and area of expertise to ideate solutions to the digital attention crisis. Learn More & Register here

Lastly, I wanted to let you know that when you bring a Purposeful digital well-being program to your team, community, or company, you're sponsoring a digital well-being program for a local public school at no charge. Learn more about our programs and get in touch to bring one to your team and a local public school!

My chief concern when it comes to the issue of the digital attention and mental health crisis facing us today is preparing the next generation to be undistractible. With a focus on teaching the teachers of k-12 schools, I've made my digital well-being programs available to public schools at no charge every time a company or private organization brings a Purposeful digital well-being program for themselves.

This is a topic we must strive to create full awareness and education on at the grassroots level. That's why I'm hosting a discussion with acclaimed psychologist Teodora Pavkovic this coming Monday evening 4/29 at the monthly Center for Humane Technology NYC meetup at Betaworks Studios.

We'll be talking about parenting in the age of technology. Whether we have kids, work with kids, or know people who do, this is one of the most important topics for us to understand at the center of the digital attention crisis we're in the midst of.

I hope you'll join us there.

Parenting in the Age of Technology:

A discussion with Teodora Pavkovic & Giancarlo Pitocco.

Monday 4/29 from 7-9pm

Betaworks Studios, 29 Little West 12th Street

Dear friends. This Saturday evening at 7pm I'm hosting a phone-free gathering with my friend Jessie May Wolfe in SoHo. It'll be a nourishing evening of in-person connection, discussion, and meditation.

I'll lead a discussion about the importance and power of harnessing your attention in an age when technology companies are actively working to capture and monetize your attention for their benefit instead of yours.

Jessie May will teach us the HeartRise meditation method - a practical and highly accessible, 4 step technique to unleash the intelligence of the human heart.

Together we'll share insights that will help you tap into the spiritual technology of your heart, attention, and intuition through meditation and truly thriving in the age of distraction.

Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. There will be time to mingle and enjoy each other's company.
