Transformational Business is Focus of SoulfulLiving.com’s May Issue

LOS ANGELES, CA, May 1, 2000 – SoulfulLiving.com, a new online guide for whole life living, examines the soul of business this month, presenting the thoughts and ideas of fifteen business visionaries, who are acting as powerful catalytic agents in a powerful transformational moment in the evolution of humanity.

Visionary futurist Willis Harman articulated in his 1987 book, "Global Mind Change," a profound belief that has become a living reality. "We are living through one of the most fundamental shifts in history--a change in the actual belief structure of Western society. No economic, political, or military power can compare with the power of a change of mind."

"Global Mind Change inspired me and thousands of other business men and women throughout the world to live an inspired business life," says Jeff Hutner, who was befriended and mentored by Harman and is one of the featured business visionaries in this month's issue of SoulfulLiving.com.

Through their important and inspiring work, this month’s featured business leaders have begun redefining corporate cultures by placing people and the planet on equal footing with profits and creating work environments that help release the enormous creative potential of people working for more than a paycheck. Hutner believes that "contributing to a positive and sustainable future is fast becoming a driving force of the emerging new business paradigm."

This month’s issue of SoulfulLiving.com is a smorgasbord of evolutionary thought, exploring such themes as spirituality in business; maximizing creativity and human potential in the workplace; honoring one's soul purpose, passion and calling; and nurturing the soul at work. The inspiring and hopeful stories found in this issue include:

"Dreams of Childhood" by Mark Albion, New York Times best-selling author of "Making a Life, Making a Living" (2000, Warner books and audiobooks).
