I think a lot about how to integrate working on consciousness in the business world.

Some people view these things as best kept separate, but this idea or path never resonated with me.

If we’re going to spend so much time in the working why not use that as an opportunity for Self discovery?

A lot of people think we are going through a shift in human consciousness. Many people think this is a necessity if humans want to continue to live here. I agree with both.

The question is how do we usher in a more harmonious way of being and society? If consciousness is part of the solution, I don’t expect large portions of the population to all of a sudden become renunciates. It seems like we’re going to need more and more efforts to integrate consciousness work with existing parts of life like work in ways where the sum is greater than the parts.

I love learning about this intersection and people who are pushing it forward. Today’s guest Scott Shute is doing exactly that. Scott is the co-founder of Changing Work and was the first head of mindfulness and compassion at LinkedIn. 

His story is a powerful one that demonstrates how our calling often starts as a seed in an unexpected place before it can blossom into something bigger. Scott was a customer operations executive who volunteered to host a meditation session at LinkedIn for employees. One person showed up to the first session. But he kept at it he was still VP of Customer Operations and gradually he became known inside the company for leading meditations. Eventually this turned into a full time position pioneering mindfulness and compassion internally at LinkedIn.

A convo with my dear friend Mark on playing the non-linear space

What if success wasn’t just about picking good bets, making good decisions, and working hard?

This is the traditional narrative and I’ve come to believe it’s missing an integral part of the pie. Oftentimes, this can lead us to what today’s guest calls “counterfeit success” where everything on the outside looks great, but their personal lives and inner experience is a different story.

Today’s guest is my dear friend Mark Krassner. Mark Krassner is a 2x founder and executive coach who brings a fresh approach to the art of achievement, contribution, and fulfillment.

As a coach, he began to notice a distinct pattern where some of his clients toiled away following the traditional narrative achieving mediocre results while others seemed to experience wild success with flow and ease.

How Vibes Shape our world.

I see the world of energy (Qi) as the next frontier for many fixtures of the human experience.

Many traditions, including RenXue where I have studied for the past 4 years, see Qi as the fundamental building block of reality.

The more we understand it through widely accepted means like Science, the more humans will be able to work with it to create a more compelling experience.

Today’s guest scientist and author Garrett Yount has been studying energy and its impact on healing for the past 20 years. His interest began when he started to experience clairvoyant phenomena as a child. This eventually led him to a career in advancing our understanding of molecular neurobiology, consciousness and extended human capacities. Through his research he has performed extensive experiments with spiritual healers and biofield practitioners from around the world.

His new book Why Vibes Matter: Understand Your Energy and Learn How to Use it Wisely covers in depth his experiences as a researcher in this field and the large body of available research on the subject.

What if learning who we are creates a more fulfilling life than getting what we want?

I heard this question posed on a podcast with today’s guest and it pretty much sums up the entirety of my experience over the past few years. Nothing has been more enriching than the deeper exploration of the nature of Self and learning to embody that more fully so that it can be expressed in the world. 

Today’s guest is Joe Hudson, founder of the Art of Accomplishment platform and executive coach.

Highlights of the episode for me were:

  • Why making life and business spiritual practice is so compelling

  • How you can think about creating a container in the business world that fosters spiritual growth

  • Why many companies fail at creating thriving businesses that help employees grow

  • The power of letting go of trying 

  • How he thinks about the Art of Accomplishment as a platform for change and empowerment
