If you work as a manager/team leader, or if you know someone currently struggling to stay conscious and heart-centered in a business management or ownership situation, the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society is coordinating a “Power of Mindfulness” retreat October 27-November 1, 2006 for leaders within business and nonprofit organizations. The instructor is spiritual activist/meditation teacher Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder of the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and author of the mind/body classic “Full-Catastrophe Living.”

Held at the Menla Mountain Retreat in Phoenicia, New York, the conference will give business people the opportunity to learn about “moment-to-moment, nonjudgmental attention,” and will provide guided instruction in meditation aimed at “cultivating stability and ease, penetrative awareness, and the insight and creativity that flows from them.”

Only problem: The business leaders who most desperately need this life-altering opportunity may not get there. But that’s OK. The world will transform without them.
