Conscious Capitalism Chicago Chapter- The Healing Organization: How Business Can Restore and Replenish Our Bodies, Minds, Souls and the Planet

September 28, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

“Work/life balance…” must we choose between them and sacrifice our health and happiness at the altar of “the job”?

Join us on September 28 from 5:30-8:00 to hear Raj Sisodia share from his research and experience with business being a source of wholeness, rather than separation:

The Healing Organization: How Business Can Restore and Replenish Our Bodies, Minds, Souls and the Planet

We live in a world of extraordinary pain and suffering. If we are not consciously part of the healing, we are probably part of the hurting. Most businesses take healthy and whole people and over time, stress them out and burn them out, adversely impacting their health and happiness as well as their families. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Business can be a source of healing, of making broken people whole again – and being extraordinarily successful at the same time. It is not about healing businesses; it is about business as healing. Raj will share many stories of such businesses and the lessons we can each learn from them.
