The Institute of Noetic Sciences is a wonderful resource with a huge storehouse of ideas from some of the brightest minds alive. Recently they released a special report : ‘The Shift 2007 Report- Evidence of a World Transforming’. This report explores where our planet is going and is a great source of hope about our species. The morning newspaper typically gives us all sorts of reasons for losing hope. The ‘Shift Report’ does quite the opposite. In the section entitled ‘Business: The Conscious Workplace’ a particular quote stood out for me.
“Business enterprises – by virtue of their access to resources, their flexibility, and their willingness to innovate – may be able to respond more creatively than any other institution to the opportunities present ina world in transition” (The Narings Liv Project – 2007)
