Why Corporate Sufi?

You might wonder why it is important to combine balance and business, material and spiritual wealth.

There are several reasons.

Massive corporate success without true personal happiness is a failure.
Many of the most profound and lasting legacies in our history have been contributed by great leaders who valued life balance and journeyed beyond monetary goals.
We are a global village where anything that happens socially, economically and environmentally around the world affects us all. We cannot ignore our collective responsibility.

If you are not convinced, these deeply troubling facts may persuade you:

* About 790 million people in the developing world are chronically undernourished.
* About half the world’s people (approximately 3.5 billion) are earning less than $2.50 a day.
* Over 2 million children die every year of a preventable disease somewhere in the world.
* One-seventh of the world is illiterate.
* Every year, thousands of people die from war, torture or abuse.
* Each year in the United States, one of the most developed countries in the world, thousands of people end up homeless.
* At World AIDS Day in 2010, a United Nations report revealed that nearly 33.4 million were infected by the HIV virus throughout the world.

The Corporate Sufi injects old-world sanity into a 21st-century corporate culture of instant gratification, technology-based communications and hyper-competitive thinking. It is up to business leaders to pause and exercise their corporate might not only to lift the economy but also to lift individuals and enable positive change around them.
