Conscious Business

In February 2011, the Center for Theory & Research hosted a conference titled Conscious Business. Initiated by former Esalen board chairman Sam Yau, and co-designed with Jay Ogilvy and others, this series brought together progressive business leaders with systems thinkers and spiritual teachers to share their personal values and discuss the emergence of new business models that honor not only the shareholders, but other stakeholders as well, including employees, customers, the community, and the environment.
