Rohan Gunatillake

Director, Mindfulness Everywhere. Creator, buddhify.

Believes you are not your work and that you should never lose sight of the fact that there’s another human being on the other end of the screen.

Thinks there will be a market for technologies which avoid training us in distraction, attention-fragmentation and isolation from others and ourselves.

“What I find exciting is not when mindfulness becomes more common as a personal development tool in business, but when it influences the technology itself.”

Believes there are three strategies to develop a mind-positive relationship with technology including to retreat, remedy, or redesign.

Thinks for too long the narrative around digital and the mind been negative.

“Distraction isn’t intrinsic to technology. It’s just that technologies have not been designed with the mind, in mind.”

Believes redesigning is not retreating.

Thinks it’s possible to turn you phone into a well-being device.
