Our time together is an invitation to cultivate increased awareness and expanding choice – thereby facilitating the possibility of practicing true inclusion. Through a combination of panel discussions, group activities, keynote speakers, interviews, fireside chats and networking opportunities, our day will be both didactic and experiential.

The Path of the WisdompreneurShifting the Paradigm. For Real.
Friday, February 19th. 9am – 5pm. Part of Wisdom 2.0’s “Wisdom Week”. Advent Software, 600 Townsend St, San Francisco, CA 91403. Throughout time, wisdom guides have taught that the most powerful resource we have is our attention. In modern life, most adults spend the majority of our waking hours earning our livelihood. So our work is the largest concentration of this precious resource. Fortunately, there is a global explosion of interest in waking up at work, in finding or creating work that is based on our values and sense of purpose.
Wisdompreneurs is on the leading edge of this intersection of a transformational and entrepreneurial mindset. Over the past 3 years, we’ve built a global community of over 12,000 people and launched local communities in cities around the world focused on helping values based entrepreneurs increase their effectiveness through the incorporation of wisdom and emotional intelligence in the lives and their organizations. We also help wisdom based practitioners increase their success in business.
Now, we are calling to together the leaders and emerging leaders of this movement for a gathering called Shift 2016: Shifting the Paradigm. The events take place over a 3 day period – February 17th-19th. They are designed to increase capacity to grow wisdom based businesses, enhance our ability to create truly inclusive organizations and deepen the sense of community among people working to leverage the power of conscious entrepreneurship for positive impact. You can come for one event or the entire 3 days.
We invite you to join us. Your voice matters.

Wisdom at Work – Love in Business
Are you yearning for more connection, wisdom and whole-heartedness in your workplace? Do you believe that your business – whether global corporate, edgy entrepreneurial start-up or solopreneur enterprise – would thrive more if the people within it can be fully themselves, expressing their love for life, for other people and for the planet without shame? It can be deeply challenging and feel very risky to be fully open-hearted, fully ourselves, whether in corporate cubicles, new client meetings or boardroom sessions; yet business wasn’t always so cold, abstract and detached and there is no reason it has to remain so. Come experience how we can all unashamedly bring more heart into our business; and how to safely free ourselves from business “front” which disconnects us from others and limits our creativity. We shall explore, how we can work together as a network to recalibrate business so it is no longer an activity that cares only for revenues and ROI… and is as interested in people showing up as the lovable and loving leaders we really are. As Mandela and Martin Luther King Jr. both knew, love is the only thing that can change anything for good. So let’s change the very heart of business with naked passion for disruptive creativity and positive change; and deep compassion for our fellow workers, citizens, consumers and ecologies.

Awakening. What? Awakening in organizations and awakening entrepreneurship…is this even possible with our large disengagement, our broken relationships at work and the large percentages of businesses that fail within the first decade? Yes, it is. Learn from Catherine, the business research, wisdom traditions, and practical know how which are all pointing us in the right direction. Catherine will outline some practices to lead us towards awakening in organizations, and then Kent Brown and Catherine Bell, will discuss what their entrepreneurial journeys have been, and how they have done it together.
Introducing this pathway, Aaron P Kahlow will quaint us with sustainable practices that support individuals and organizations both personally and professionally and builds to create a new type of “life warrior”: one that mindfully leads with great courage, compassion and presence. By placing emphasis on “hard work” and “success” as leading to wealth and business accomplishment, we have failed to create an appropriate hierarchy of prioritization that emphasizes health, balance, peace of mind and sustainable happiness: Also the keys to being a leader with clarity, grace and true authenticity.

Depth to Expression – Accessing, Utilizing and Implementing Inner Wisdom
Who are you? What are our deepest desires and yearnings? What are the unique gifts that only you bring to the planet? What essential parts of you have been lost or buried along the journey? What do you work hardest at? What you avoid? Does your life today reflect what most important to you? In a dynamic daylong process utilizing inner work, paired sharing and group work we look deeply at the forces moving us through life. We will develop the skills of receptivity and inner listening needed to create alignment of Body, Mind and Spirit. This is a chance to reconnect with your inner world and reset how you show up in the world. Some extra info from our power point: Our greatest power, deepest intelligence, and truest inertia emanate from within – attuning to these places of inner awareness is not only our most important journey but also unleashes our most valuable resources. Highlight, support, and model attention towards the Wisdompreneurs inward process. If we cannot resolve our inward unrest, how can we ever find peace? We support work to discover, choose, and align with our true purpose, are we utilizing our potential to its fullest. If we have not stepped into the fullness of our truth and wisdom, is it likely our actions, ventures, leadership are ill founded on our own internal habits and patterns.
