AT ONE International Conference 2019

New Paradigm, New Era of Well-being

Redefining well-being, wellness, healthcare & integrative medicine

Photos from AT ONE International Conference 2018

As we continue into the 21st century, we find ourselves in a new era focused on well-being. With this new era comes new challenges, and much like our ancestors who first encountered the previous era of industrialization, we must create and implement a new paradigm to face these challenges. This new paradigm will serve as a model for our culture as we seek to adapt to and thrive in the well-being economy.

As Einstein said, “We cannot solve problems with the same level of consciousness that created it.” To this end, the science of consciousness must become a pillar of mainstream science and shifting consciousness will become the solution to all the challenges posed by this new era. We believe that consciousness is the mother of all capital.

We need to push boundaries, reclaim our whole self. Technology is driving merging of physical and digital. Science is meeting consciousness. Quantum is displacing Newtonian. Holism is pushing out separation. What does this mean to living and how will this change the incomplete healthcare system? It is common destiny for humanity to seek freedom and joy. This, we can be when we are well.

Today, we focus on the human body, on how to treat and or prevent disease, or how to maintain health, rather than nurturing a flourishing whole human person. Ancient wisdom traditions have approached life and well-being holistically, the human being at the level of energy, information, and consciousness. If we can incorporate these facets of being human into one model, we will be able to bring this holistic healing system to life and being.

We know when we are well, and one is only well when all is well. After all, life is all there is. This is when we have aligned our conscious and unconscious self with the collective holistic consciousness, where purpose, focus and action are aligned to the different levels of the mind.

This is the paradigm of Quantum Leadership, where all people must become the CEO of their own life.

The one-day Conference on 16th November 2019 and a close door forum for speakers / panelists on 15th November 2019 will explore:

  • Explore the paradigm of life sciences from the west and the east to define what life is and what health and wellness means.
  • Reimagine the future of what healthcare may look like as society lives longer, human life span increases and technology is changing the entire landscape.
  • Who should be responsible, for what and how do we get there?
