Spiritual Life in the 9-to-5 — workshop

It’s hard to fit spirituality into your workday. You can “make time” for prayer or meditation between meetings and tasks — and this is a good thing. But better yet: stop trying to fit spirituality into your workday. Instead, make your workday part of your spirituality!

In this workshop, you’ll explore how to:

(1) Define your “job” as a way to do Real Good in the world.
(2) Make it a Spiritual Practice to ask, “What am I called to do?” and “How am I called to do it?”
(3) Create or improve a career/business that lets you do good through (a) what you sell and (b) how you make and sell it.

Almost any work can be sacred if you approach the work with intention and spiritual guidance. Whether you work for Home Depot or a home-based business, Morgan Stanley or a mechanic’s shop, your work can be a spiritual practice in tune with what you believe is true.

What You’ll Do and What You’ll Get: This three-hour workshop includes structured discussion, analysis, and time to share your ideas and questions within a small group of fellow professionals (four maximum). By the end of the day, you’ll have new ideas for how to make your career — present and future — a true part of your spiritual life.  And, with luck, you’ll have new energy and new friends to help you along the way. Here’s a Sample Workshop Agenda.

Should You Come?  Will You Fit In?!  If you are a business professional who wants to align your real-life work with your central beliefs and practices, this workshop is right for you.  We welcome the “Spiritual-but-not-religious”, the longtime practitioners of any named religion, and anyone in between.

“I really enjoyed this workshop — so human, and so connecting! Thank you for helping me find a much better approach for helping my colleagues who I’ve been thinking of as ‘enemies’.” — [research scientist]

Workshop guide, Phil Marsosudiro:

Phil-headshot-50x71Over the last 25 years, I’ve found many different ways to do “Real Good Work” — first, as an environmental engineer; then as a management and marketing consultant; and now as an advisor to spiritually guided business people.  I grew up in a Roman Catholic family and am now a Quaker. My clients include the “spiritual, not religious”, as well as members of established faiths.
