A guru and an ex-hippie businessman come to The Commonwealth Club for an unconventional discussion around new paradigms in business. Their innovative and transformative concepts offer pathways to discover what business with a higher purpose could look like. Come with an open mind – you’ll laugh, you’ll be surprised, and you’ll leave empowered and inspired.

Sadhguru Vasudev is a yogi, mystic and visionary humanitarian. Named one of "India's 50 Most Powerful People" by India Today Magazine, he has spoken at the UN Millennium World Peace Summit and the World Economic Forum. With wit, wisdom and piercing logic, this modern mystic brings insights into how spirituality can translate to mindful business.

Paul Hawken is an environmental entrepreneur, author, and civil rights activist. He has written four national best-sellers, including the Ecology of Commerce, Natural Capitalism, Growing a Business and Blessed Unrest. He has questioned the nature of business and its relationship to spirituality since he was a 10-year-old paperboy.
