Little over a month ago I attended Greater Good Science Center's Mindfulness & Well Being at Work conference where I had the joy of being present when Birju closed the day with a story, sharing with the audience his journey with asking the question How does personal transformation connect to societal transformation? At the conclusion of his short talk, the man behind me clapped enthusiastically and let out a big "'Whooah!"

    Birju is a great speaker -- and it's wonderful to have a video of him speaking about transformation from the lens of finance. :)

    So amazing to hear, in action, the jug getting filled drop-by-drop, even in a world seemingly as intractable as corporate/finance!

    From time to time I am attending seminars about well-being in a business company. I always leave the meeting sad, dissapointed, some time a little bit irritated, feeling that there are handling this fundamental topic with a corporate lens: what sort of practices can we develop to make people feel well in order they bring more creativity, efficiency, productivity, yield, financial performance, etc... it is always what motivates them, to build like a standard, techical practices to reach this objective.
    THANK YOU Dearest Birju for giving us the demonstration that there is a so "simple path" to bring well being in the corporate world...and with what an effect...

    Beautiful, Birju! The story, and the practice, are so simple -- and told with simplicity and clarity. Inspiring to contemplate.

    Great watching this! Loved how the folks in the background were not paying attention (perhaps as usual) at the start of the 4 minutes, but were gripped and all watching Birju at the end of 4 minutes :-)

    I do believe that you are dealing with the root solution because unless we change consciousness everything else is a remedial Band-Aid.
