Mindful : April 2018
video is posted. We lose context. Our sense of emotional gravity, both the highs and the lows, is lost. With yoga, we return to a real sense of unity and connectedness—in contrast to the fragmented attention, numbness, and tribalism induced by social media. That’s a fascinating set of extremes to be negotiating. I have spent much of my career bringing technolog y to people, but I hope this practice—of yoga and mindfulness and teaching—helps others build the muscles to manage their own relationship to technol- ogy. While the scale is different, I’m trying to help people discern how much time and attention they want to spend on the technology that my industry has developed. Technolog y has deceived us into thinking that we’re more connected to people, when actually we’re less connected. Technology is a distraction from real, true human connection and love. Mindfulness practices open our “I hope this practice—of yoga and mindfulness and teaching—helps others build the muscles to manage their relationship to technology.” hearts and allow us to be more mean- ingfully connected. Surely other leaders in your field are grappling with the same challenge. For many of my colleagues and peers, that’s at the top of our minds these days. We’re not turning away from technology—we’re not becoming Lud- dites—but we’re evaluating its role in our lives and our relationship to it. I’m often asked, “How do you par- ent in the digital age?” I don’t think there’s a great answer. My children aren’t on Twitter or Facebook, and before the school year started, I forced them to delete Snapchat from their phones. At night, we dock our phones on the main floor so that we don’t have devices next to our beds. Thinking about your almost lifelong relationship to technology, I wonder what ever happened to that Mac SE. My father still has it. He uses it as a doorstop. ● In addition to working as an operating partner at venture capital firm Khosla Ventures, Au is a yoga instructor. She teaches yoga three mornings a week before work.
