7th International Leadership Symposium on Ethics in Business

Dear ones,

We are pleased to inform you about the 7th International Leadership Symposium on Ethics in Business, which will take place at the European Parliament, Brussels, 18th – 19th November 2010. The Symposium is organised by the World Forum for Ethics in Business, in which the International Association for Human Values (sister organisation of Art of Living) and the World Bank Institute are partnering organisations.


The heart of both the Symposium and the WFEB is to actively build and support ethics as an indispensable foundation to business.  This includes valuing and being in integrity with employees, business partners and the communities in which businesses operate.  As the economy becomes progressively more global and resources dwindle, it is also essential and ethical that we are in integrity with the planet through sustainable development practices. These are very timely issues!  Bringing ethics into organizations is not a nice-to-have item, but a societal need.


The theme of this year's Conference, "Leadership in the 21st Century – Time for a Paradigm Shift?!" stems from the need to reconsider leadership styles and strategies in the face of the ongoing social and economic challenges worldwide. The Symposium will focus on ways to evolve leadership styles that are sustainable, yet profitable.


We would like to share with you the list of high-profile Speakers and the detailed Conference program attached, as well as a background brief for reference.


If you know individuals and organizations interested in corporate social responsibility issues and innovative, sustainable approaches to business, kindly forward them the invitation.


Please note, that registrations are accepted till the 1st November, 2010!


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact our Event Office:

Blessings Course in Bad Antogast

Dear Friends,

We all know that magical things happen in Bad Antogast but in November there will be a truly magical Blessings Course with Swami Jyotirmaya. The course starts with satsang on Nov. 25th (Thursday) at 7.30 p.m  and finishes on Nov.28th (Sunday) at 3 p.m. and the days in between will open your eyes to aspects of yourself and your relationship with others that could well affect the rest of your life.
Swami Jyotirmaya has created magic wherever he has taken a Blessings Course and he has left a lasting impression on everyone he's met. The light of the knowledge shines so brightly through him and his blessings have brought change to many peoples' lives. The combination of his wisdom and grace and the amazing processes you will undergo on the Blessings Course will make this an unforgettable experience.
If you've thought about doing the Blessings Course or wished to repeat the course this is truly a special opportunity. And if you are granted the gift of blessing others you, in turn, could bring this grace back home with you.
In order to take part in this course you must have already completed at least two Art of Silence courses.
Please spread the message among all those who might be interested.
For further info and the application form please email or call 0049(0)780497390.
With Love,
Your Bad Antogast Team
