The Living Room

April 23 - 26, 2020
Austin, Texas

The Living Room is a home for those at the cutting edge of the connection revolution.

It's a conference for leaders to converge.

 To invent practices that shake up social norms through experiences intended to help communities, workplaces, and families thrive. 

To study and cultivate psychological safety, empathy, and authenticity in innovative ways.

To increase connection, growth, and play on all levels.

To fight the loneliness epidemic with every tool we have.

This is where we gather...

This is our Living Room. 

 

make the connection...

"A thrilling experience that brilliantly blends

the whimsical charm of true creative spontaneity

with the kind of high-caliber content

that is born only by high level leaders of different fields

coming together to envision what is possible in the future."

- Attendee

The living room was attractive at face value,

but nothing could have prepared me for the massively impactful nature of the container.

I had more new ideas about my business and life journey this weekend

than I have in the last 6 months.

- Attendees

This was a great way to deepen intelligent connection

while respecting agency of service and leadership.

- Attendee

The Living Room brought an incredible group of visionaries and facilitators together

with the play and space to flow.

Amazing experience!

Why You?

We've created this conference to be application and invite-only. You'll be among others at your level of capacity, interest, and values. What would make you a fit?

Connection

This conference was created because we got tired of having endless 1:1 video calls with people that were changing our minds and lives, and decided we should all get in the same space. 

If you're a fit for this conference, you have the capacity to connect on a human-to-human level.

You don't take yourself too seriously.

You've probably done communication, relating, or personal growth work.

You maybe get the cosmic joke.

Most of all, you really don't suck to talk to, so we want to talk to you.

creation

The world needs a new story.

If you're accepted to this conference, it's because you're trying to make a change. You're a teacher, a writer, a programmer, an artist, an organizer, an entrepreneur, a transformation worker, a leader in your field or your community. You're probably not all of those, but you get the idea.

Many of you work alone or feel alone. We want you to find new ideas and collaborations, and think you will among the others here.

You're a creator. We'll set a high-quality stage. You will help decide what goes on it.

high standards

You're busy most of the time. You guard your time with care. You've done plenty of work on yourself, and want to be around others who have too. You probably find most conferences boring.

If you don't like something, you'll tell us so that we can make it better, rather than staying quiet and dissatisfied.

If we throw in a curveball of mischief or challenge, you're more likely to rise to the challenge than to come complain.

Long story short: playing with you is going to be fun.
