Each week includes a 90 minute, live, instructor-led session and a 90 minute Community Building Discussion Group. Some weeks will also include pre-recorded videos for viewing on your own time prior to the instructor-led session. The Discussion Groups
include break-outs into smaller interactive (virtual) rooms. Some weeks, the break-out rooms offer you the opportunity to jointly explore thought- (and heart-) provoking questions related to Conscious Business while getting to know your fellow training class participants. Other weeks, the break-outs will offer live Q & A sessions with some of our Certified Conscious Business Change Agents
(CBCA). All of these change agents have been through the full Conscious Business Foundational Training Program
and the CBCA Certification Process
and are now embarked on projects that are putting the principles of the Conscious Business Declaration
into action. These sessions offer a great opportunity for you to ask them about their journeys and the challenges they faced during their journey.
To be repeated in July
Pre-recorded videos will also be provided at least 1 week in advance of each Wednesday class for viewing at your convenience prior to the Wednesday class each week.
All class sessions are recorded and the recordings and class materials will be posted to the Introduction to Conscious Business Training Web Site.

Is this Course For Me? Is Conscious Business Part of Your Personal Journey?
If you’ve gotten to the point of reading this, there is some part of you that is resonating with the Conscious Business Declaration
and the potential to be part of a global community aimed at manifesting a very new model for business in the world
. A model that challenges the deepest assumptions upon which the current model of business is based. A new model that is life-affirming and regenerative in the biosphere and can lead to personal, collective and global well-being.
Perhaps you recognize that business has unrivaled power to connect those with needs with those with the capacity to meet those needs… that it fires the creative imagination, leading to previously unimaginable innovation… that it is likely the greatest driver shaping the evolution of our planet…
… but you also see clearly that the current standard of business is not working… for the planet, for people, or for business.
Perhaps you have enjoyed a successful career in the business world, developing many skills and talents…
… but are finding it more and more difficult to reconcile the ends to which your gifts are being used with your growing sense of what the earth and its interconnected living systems need to flourish.
Perhaps you don’t think of yourself as a “business person” at all. You may identify primarily as an artist and/or activist and/or a heart-worker volunteering at a non-profit/NGO aligned with a cause you feel deeply about…
… but your dwindling financial reserves are forcing you to spend time in the “unconscious economy” in order to put food on the table, shelter overhead, provide for your family, educate your children.
Perhaps you have been on a deep spiritual journey leading to higher stages of consciousness…
… but your heart-break at what is unfolding in the world is calling you to right-action and right livelihood.
In these or a number of other ways, you may feel drawn to the Conscious Business Initiative, but may still be
uncertain if the path offered by the Conscious Business Initiative is the right path for you?
Helping you answer this critical question is the reason we created the Introduction to Conscious Business
