THE CHOICE IS YOURS

How often do you use business as a reason to close your heart and mind?

What if business were a constant opportunity for personal growth?

What would happen to the world if we all experienced business this way?

WELCOME

Welcome to our intimate 18-month course located in beautiful Northern California.
This course is for people who have shown courage in their self-exploration and are facilitating change in the world.
Together, we will explore the fundamental nature of business and consciousness.
We will learn tools that deepen our self-recognition while increasing our capacity for effective action.

INSPIRATION

I once officiated a wedding ceremony in Palo Alto. When I had finished, an older woman approached me with a group of friends. She was deeply touched by the ceremony and asked if I would marry her grandson. I explained that this was not my profession, and I would have to decline. She asked what I did for a living. I told her I was a Venture Capitalist. Her mouth fell open and her friends looked at me as if I had just levitated.
“What made my profession so shocking?” I thought. I then realized it stems from a commonly held view in our culture that business people have to forfeit their spiritual self-care to succeed, and spiritual seekers have to forfeit worldly success to develop their consciousness.

PRINCIPLES OF THE FORUM

MIND, BODY, AND HEART

The exercises and tools used in the course will focus on balancing the mind, body, and heart. Change happens when all of these components are engaged. Meditation, vulnerability, and self-inquiry practices are just some of the many tools we will explore in this balanced approach.

EXPERIENTIAL AND APPLIED LEARNING

We will spend most of our time doing exercises and applying what we learn to our current life situations. This will give you a better understanding of the power of the tools in action. It will also convey how quickly these tools can change one’s life when practiced.

INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL

How we treat ourselves affects how we treat others. How we treat others affects what we can accomplish. At the same time, we can’t build our vision if we don’t have the tools. That is why the course focuses on a diverse set of skills. For example, we will learn how to unravel core shame issues, create inspiring culture, and sell in a way that promotes self-discovery.

WORKING WITH JOE

download-15
My work is all about understanding one’s self and encouraging authentic expression. I facilitate the journey by bringing a unique set of tools that are grounded in many psychological, neurological, and spiritual traditions. These tools focus on unwinding negative underlying patterns and tapping into our natural capacity to love and fully accept ourselves.
