SPIRITUAL RENEWAL FOR YOUR WORK LIFE
“Most of us have a deep, intuitive desire to connect with a reality deeper than ourselves, in other words to experience a deeper sense of connection with God, and to then bring our daily lives into alignment with this deeper reality. Experiencing this connection has the potential to renew and energize our work lives and to give us a new sense of purpose.”
We invite you to join with us as we explore the possibilities for renewal. Our weekly podcast and blog offer information and ideas, and we welcome comments. You can also find us on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
Our work can provide an opportunity to extend our experience of the sacred into the material world and on into the future that is yet to be built.

THE TIME HAS COME FOR SPIRITUAL RENEWAL
Our mission is to find ways to help people experience this renewal in their work lives. We focus on ways to:
- Find spiritual practices that can help us turn our attention towards God and connect to a deeper reality, and maybe in the process develop a stronger sense of purpose, focus, and effectiveness.
- Understand the meaning of our daily work and find our calling.
- Deal with workplace toxicity, such as work-related stress, conflict, and burnout.
- Appreciate and develop the spiritual aspects of leadership.
If you agree with us on the need for spiritual renewal, then please consider helping us spread the word. One way to help would be to let your friends and associates know about our podcast and blog. Other ideas for participating are available here.
