Note: During the past nine months, the Centre has been undergoing major changes. (See our August 2015 newsletter here.) As a result, parts of this Website are outdated. Please bear with us as we revise it - and grow our new organization. - Thanks!
We all ‘work’ at something each day – projects, tasks, emails, meetings, organizing or leading, finding new work or clients, dealing with conflicts, going places, managing time, or earning money...
Does your daily work inspire or exhaust your spirit?
Is it mostly about making a living and getting things done? Or can it be more than that, so you feel more inspired and fulfilled, do work that really matters to you, and create a better world?
transform what you do by becoming more mindful/conscious...
or apply your faith & spiritual wisdom in whatever your work is...
We'd like to support you in doing that.
Who We Are
Created in 1999, the Centre for Spirituality at Work is a community of over 700 people . Originally based in Toronto, our office is now In Vancouver, Canada. Our network includes those who are self-employed, employed in small-to-large companies & organizations, volunteers and unemployed - locally, regionally & around the world.
Our focus is on supporting spiritually-aware people who work. This includes:
- growing our spiritual understanding, experience and connection
- drawing on a deeper wisdom within/around us
- finding practical ways to apply this in our own work, and
- helping others to do
What is "spirituality"?
It's however you define it. For some, it's an experience of something larger than oneself. A connection to nature, our deeper humanity or life itself. For others, it's faith, a belief in God, a higher power, intelligence or mind. And for still others, it's about becoming more 'conscious' - and contributing to the "consciousness shift" that's happening in our world. Regardless of our beliefs, the Centre is a place to discover what we have in common, connect who we are with the work we do, and to help others do the same.
What We Do
Previously, our work was hosting "centre" workshops and events in Toronto. However, our new goal is to support members in growing their "spirit + work" - wherever they are - through helping them connect, collaborate, share what they do and learn from others. And we'd like you to be part of it...
For those in the Toronto area, we:
- host monthly Breakfasts to help you meet/talk with people of like mind,
- host monthly Meditations to connect with your inner Spirit and 'soul work'
- promote events of members of our Network, and other local networks.
For those in other locations, we now provide:
- Regular Newsletters with online resources and information (more here)
- Online events run by members of our network
- Information on events/conferences organized by other groups
- Coaching & Consulting services to help you deal with specific needs & issues, or ways to apply this in your work, business or organization.
We want to deal with the real-life experiences of bringing "spirituality" and "conscious awareness" into work. To give members 'safe places' to talk about it. Openly explore the challenges, including the conflicts, ego or aloneness we often experience. Ways to bring this work more out in the open. And the real opportunities it brings in creating progress and change in our work, our lives and our world.
Rather than convincing others what to believe, we support members in living their values & beliefs, and bringing these into whatever they do. (To be the change, not just talk about it.) We also focus on creating a community of practice, to support and learn from each other about how to apply this wisdom at work.
