Conscious Business and Holistic Centers
Wednesday 13 February, 10am PST
The desire to raise human consciousness is both utterly ancient and continually new…and appears to be sadly elusive on a global scale. Yet our world – and our very survival as a species – seems to beg for a massive shift in all realms of human operation. How can we, as a holistic community and holders of sacred space, increase the degree and rate of consciousness today? When it comes to the business closest to us – are we holding ourselves accountable to a higher level of consciousness even when we feel bound by the conventions of business in our daily dealings?
Terence Gilbey, General Manager and CEO of Esalen Institute, hosted our January webinar and walked us around the big technology lift they went through in the last quarter of 2018.
How did they approach the challenge of shifting almost their entire technology suite stack away from a single custom written platform? Terry shared some of the high level approaches used and then as a group we explored detailed technologies during the Q&A.
The last 40 years have seen an explosion of interest in the West and worldwide in consciousness, personal growth, holistic practices, and green and sustainable values. This profoundly creative impulse of renewal, with its many positive consequences in wellness, psychology, meditation, ecology and the embrace of a globally interconnected future, has had an invigorating effect on a society that might well have continued on a course of decline and empty materialism.

The “New Consciousness” – or “New Pattern” of activity and consciousness on the planet – is both the knowledge and experience that All of Life, and everything in Nature, is One Whole and Indivisible System of Being. This One Whole System has countless layers of individuals and collectives expressing all manner of possibilities, and yet there is only One Process going on. [Read more…]

“…The salvation of this human world lies nowhere else than in the human heart, in the human power to reflect, in human meekness and in human responsibility. Without a global revolution in the sphere of human consciousness, nothing will change for the better…and the catastrophe toward which this world is headed—be it ecological, social, demographic or a general breakdown of civilization—will be unavoidable.”
Vaclav Havel (in an address to the U.S. Congress, 1990)

120 Days of Transformation: An Esalen Case Study
Wednesday 30 January, 10am PST (rescheduled from 9 Jan due to zoom being down)
Like a number of the centers in HCN, Esalen was started before we had the internet and when computers were the size of small cars. Before the age of the “app”, software was custom written and was designed to work the way the business was run. There was no best practice or an existing model for Esalen so the software grew organically as the center learned how to grow and operate. [Read more…]
