Weekly Update for 10/05/17

October 5, 2017

Greetings Community,

Listening to Robert interview Rachel Zurer from Conscious Company Magazine I am reminded that not everyone sees the way we do business as the driving force for how our society operates like I do. The fact that my co-workers here at The Integral Center take it as seriously as I do has me feeling seen and met. I’m constantly treating how I do my job as a social experiment to see how I can shape society in a better way. You may have noticed my little social experiment with Gaia Orion’s merchandise for sale in the Reception Area. I want to enroll the community in taking responsibility for the merchandise staying safe and I experimented with asking people to count the inventory after they purchase something (so if something is stolen I’ll know about it sooner and won’t have to scan through as many hours of security footage). We’ll see if it works, I’ll keep you posted!

In This Issue:

  • Robert interviews Rachel Zurer, editor of Conscious Company Magazine for the RLS Podcast.
  • The next Aletheia Integral Relating Intensive is scheduled for November 17th to 19th.
  • Gaia Orion’s prints, jewelry, and books are for sale in the Reception Area through Oct 29th.

There’s a lot of great events so look at our online calendar for more info and any last minute changes.

On the Front Lines of Conscious Business

Rachel Zurer is the Editorial Director for Conscious Company Media & Magazine which shares inspiring, cutting edge stories about business as a force for good in service of elevating consciousness in the business world.

Rachel, from her position in the “fire-tower” of Conscious Business, discusses with Robert the concept in broad strokes, as well as examples that demonstrate the trends, dignities, and disasters of this noble pursuit.

Topics discussed:
– What’s at the intersection of consciousness and business?
– A definition for Conscious Business: considering all stakeholders and relationships
– Beyond environmental impact, social entrepreneurialism enables business to be a tool for positive change
– How your workplace and business can also be a powerful place for personal growth and transformation
– The dignities and disasters of profit motivation as well as applying more “consciousness” to business
– Moral High-grounding and how the trends of “consciousness” can create a lot of “shoulds” that are worse than the problems they’re trying to solve
– What’s the key to succeed in this nuanced complex day and age?

Examples mentioned:
– Conscious Company Media: consciouscompanymedia.com
– Tom’s Shoes: www.toms.com/
