Columbia University: Spirituality Mind Body Institute – David Evans Shaw presentation
By David Shaw
I had the good fortune of speaking recently at Columbia’s Spirituality Mind Body Institute at the invitation of Dr. Lisa Miller, founder of the Institute. Via discussions over several months, Dr. Miller suggested that elements of my entrepreneurial impact-oriented life journey would be of great interest to Institute participants in their quests to lead inspired and fulfilling lives.
I’m happy to share this video recap of our meeting. We began with a short journey to Bhutan where the concept of Gross National Happiness was created as an alternative to the Gross National Product metric for success. We continued with vignettes of impact-oriented entrepreneurial business ventures, and challenges associated with traditional metrics of success in capitalism. The presentation concludes with thoughts about the wisdom of improving our stewardship of the natural world, and observations about better understanding ways to achieve optimal brain wellness :
I’m grateful for this opportunity to interact with the important work of Dr. Miller and the Institute she leads.
