Conscious Entrepreneurship Workshop Nyenrode 2014: ‘How to Deploy Conscious Entrepreneurship In Your Company?’

Marc Gafni, Mauk Pieper & Paul de Blot at Nijenrode UniversityIn this workshop on Conscious Entrepreneurship at Nyenrode Business University, Dr. Marc Gafni, Ken Wilber (on Skype), and Prof. Dr. Paul de Blot explored the following questions:

  • What are the three core principles of running a conscious business?
  • What is the difference between the shareholder model and the stakeholder model, and why does it matter?
  • Why is it essential for a company to identify its Unique Self?
  • What are the three reasons that changing the perception of business in the modern world is essential to the success of business?
  • Why is the evolution of business from unconscious to conscious entrepreneurship essential to the financial bottom line of a company?

Let’s celebrate the role of capitalism in culture, and create a breakthrough new way of navigating a transforming economy. What might it take to forge radical changes born from the ethical and spiritual wisdom of Ken Wilber’s Integral approach. Spiritual and ethical consciousness in doing business includes four principles:

  • Higher purpose / meaning of life
  • Interdependent stakeholders’ orientation
  • Conscious leadership based on self-leadership
  • Conscious culture of trust with awareness for each other

Board Meeting 2014: Ken Wilber on Integral Wisdom

In Ken’s talk at the 2014 Board Meeting, he talked about the different implications of the term World Spirituality versus the term Integral Wisdom.

In 2012, Marc and Ken initiated a two-year conversation with the leadership of the Center about what the think tank’s formal name should be. We began as The Center for World Spirituality, and then, the name evolved to The Center for Integral Wisdom. In the end, our decision is to call ourselves iEvolve: Evolving the Source Code of Culture: The Center for Integral Wisdom. Within that context, one of our lead projects is the World Spirituality Project.

You can listen to Ken Wilber’s talk on Integral Wisdom from the Board Meeting in February 2014 and read the transcript below:

The Center for World Spirituality is leading the way in this bold adventure. I am honored to be active as part of the leadership of CWS.
